  • Notes

She gets hit by all the skills and basic attacks. 2v2 is overly advantageous but not 1v1. Don’t try to fight 1v1 against her.


There are many Kleptomancy Ezreals now, just hit him using basic attacks because your attack range is longer. Caitlyn is perfect to play against Ezreal.

MissFortuneMiss Fortune

When you meet MF, hit her once in a while with basic attack to cut her W passive movement speed. When she pushes the lane to the tower, put up your traps in front and hit her when she tries to kill the minions.


Varus Ult range = Caitlyn Q range.
You need to stomp on Varus from the early game. If he buys Guinsoo, you won’t even be able to put up a proper fight.


Caitlyn’s E isn’t that good of an evading skill so even if you predict Leona’s E or R, you get hit. I always start by banning Leona.


Beware of his grab.


Everything goes well with Caitlyn.
Just choose Runes according to the situation.

Personally, I use only 1 rune page.
It’s convenient when you want just want to switch the main rune from Fleet Footwork to Lethal Tempo.

Triumph is essential for all Precision champions.

Legendary: Alacrity vs Bloodline
Alacrity is a lot better; the attack speed is totally different.

Coup de Grace
Shut up and pick this.

Sorcery is used instead of Domination.
I usually pick Celerity and Gathering Storm because I aim at the late game.
The most important part of Caitlyn is enduring the early game.
If you can dominate the opponent with outrageous mechanics from the beginning, it’s alright to pick domination.


Most Caitlyn users know the 90 Caliber NetPiltover PeacemakerHeadshot combo,

but when you’re planning to run away after dealing damage, it’s better to use Yordle Snap Trap before Piltover Peacemaker, playing Yordle Snap TrapHeadshotPiltover Peacemaker.

With Precision at level 3, if you hit 90 Caliber Net-Yordle Snap Trap-Headshot-Piltover Peacemaker-[Caught in trap]-Headshot combo, at least 80% of the opponent ADC’s HP will evaporate. If they avoid the trap, it’s just hitting just 90 Caliber Net-Headshot-Piltover Peacemaker-basic attack with a bit of mana wasted.

If you mix Yordle Snap Trap in your combos, it’s easier to evade Piltover Peacemaker coming after 90 Caliber Net so you should shoot Piltover Peacemaker predicting your opponent’s movement.

You should master Yordle Snap Trap first against Kog'MawDravenMiss FortuneKalista. You can watch them step on your Yordle Snap Trap and struggle until they die.

Against Sivir, don’t lay Yordle Snap Trap in the lane, but put them in the three-way or in front of the drake pit to prevent ganks.

When you place traps at RevivalsChronoshift, Twisted Fate’s UltDestiny, Galio’s UltHero's Entrance, TeleportTeleport etc, it’s really fun.

When there are many global-moving champions, master Yordle Snap Trap first and place them where opponents come.

Infinity Edge Berserker's Greaves Statikk Shiv Rapid Firecannon 

These four items is a must.

If you think the laning phase will be hard to endure, go with Doran's Shieldotherwise, buy Doran's Blade.

Caitlyn is very weak against most AD champions in the early game. Think of taking half and half.

1st Core item  Infinity Edge.
The game becomes much easier if you buy Infinity Edge first. In most situations, go with B. F. Sword andBerserker's Greaves. If the game gets disadvantageous, go with PickaxeStatikk ShivBerserker's Greaves.

2nd Core item  Statikk Shiv.

I do not recommend Runaan's Hurricane. If you think this Runaan's Hurricane better, it’s alright, but don’t buy Phantom Dancer.

3rd Core Rapid Firecannon
Personally, I go with these three items Infinity EdgeStatikk ShivRapid Firecannon no matter what, regardless our team does good or bad.

I’m sure there are people who felt that catharsis when Infinity Edge + Statikk Shiv + Rapid Firecannon + Headshot + all come out in one shot. This is why I play Caitlyn.

4th Core: Random
Buy whatever you want. Whatever I write, you’ll end up buying what you want, right?
From the 4th core and on, buy what you think is best on playing against your current opponents.

From Laning to Teamfights

Surprise the opponents by shooting headshots at them and put up traps in brushes where opponents try to enter the brush. Warding is also very important.

Early game

Caitlyn is very weak in the early game (in my opinion).

Keep out of trouble before you buy Infinity Edge. You'll be paying for each and every time you die during the laning phase. If you feed too much in the early game, it’s good to master Yordle Snap Trap first to put traps in the brushes and the jungle.

Mid Game

You can put in more pressure if your trap is about Lv.4. Bother your opponents with your traps.

Put up your traps where your opponents put their wards or in brushes where the opponent takes a detour.

Late Game

Even if you’ve scaled well, avoid being alone. Always stay with an ally champion.

In the late game, always put up two traps each in the front and back of where you are.

The last one is for the champions who try to approach you.

Role during Teamfights

When teamfights get initiated, go with W-Basic-W-Basic-W-Basic… and start kiting.

If you start putting up your traps, it helps when the opponents chase you or when they run away.

To close up...

I used to be Bronze tier, so I know what the problem is for those of you who are in a low tier. If you want to go up, you need to change your mindset. If you did bad, just simply apologize.

You don’t get good by just playing a lot. The difference comes from how much you’ve understood the macro game and how much you know about the characteristics of the champions.

▲ Season 8 Caitlyn win rate 70.8%

▲ Although it should be completely different playing against Challenger players,

I'm quite proud that my stats are around that of Challenger players.
