Abilities

Edit

Headshot

Headshot.png

Innate: Caitlyn's basic attacks generate a stack of Count Pix, Faerie Companion.png on-attack, doubled when attacking from Brushmaker.png brush. At 6 stacks, or 5 while in brush, Caitlyn's next basic attack consumes all stacks to become a Headshot: it has an Relentless Force 2.png uncancelable windup and deals (50 / 75 / 100% (based on level) + (109.375% + 21.875% 21.875%) critical strike chance) AD bonus physical damage, increased to (100% + (109.375% + 21.875% 21.875%) critical strike chance) AD against non-champions.

Caitlyn may fire more than one Headshot until it hits a target, which consumes all stacks.

Headshot 2.png

Enemies that step over a Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap or are hit by 90 Caliber Net 90 Caliber Net can grant an additional Headshot against them at Range icon.png 1300 range within 1.8 seconds, without consuming stacks. Each method grants only one Headshot at a time.

Info
  • Headshot is consumed when the missile successfully hits the target.
  • If Caitlyn's current target becomes trapped by Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap or 90 Caliber Net 90 Caliber Net while her attack is on cooldown, this ongoing cooldown will be refunded partially so that her next attack on them can begin earlier.
    • Swapping the target to an enemy trapped by Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap or 90 Caliber Net 90 Caliber Net also reduces her ongoing attack cooldown.
      • 𝐏𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓 : The exact attack cooldown refund appears to be 50% of the attack cooldown at current attack speed, but at a minimum amount it lets Caitlyn start the attack against the trapped target within 0.5 seconds of her previous attack windup completing.
  • The bonus range from Rapid Firecannon Rapid Firecannon will not have any effect during trap trap and net net extended Headshot attacks.
  • Only the ordinary 100% attack damage portion of the attack can critically strike. The bonus from Headshot is added after the critical strike is rolled.
  • The basic attack triggering Headshot can Critical strike icon.png critically strike, but Headshot's damage remains unchanged if it does.
  • Since Caitlyn's Art and Sustainability Update, Ability-granted Headshots are the same as the original Headshot override attack, though what lets them cast at high range is still relatively special. They trigger on-attack effects (including stacking Headshot).
    • 𝐏𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐅𝐎𝐑 𝐓𝐄𝐒𝐓 Runaan's Hurricane's Runaan's Hurricane's Wind's Fury, is special cased to search targets with the increased range as well.
  • Because Headshot stacks are generated on-attack, Runaan's Hurricane Runaan's Hurricane bolts will not generate stacks towards Headshot.
  • The empowered attack will not trigger against wards.
    • Stacks will still be generated towards Headshot when attacking them.

Edit

Piltover Peacemaker

Piltover Peacemaker.png

Active: Caitlyn fires a piercing shot in the target direction that deals physical damage to the first enemy it passes through, after which it expands in width but deals only 50% damage to enemies it passes thereafter.

Physical Damage:
50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 (+ 130 / 145 / 160 / 175 / 190% AD)
Reduced Damage:
25 / 45 / 65 / 85 / 105 (+ 65 / 72.5 / 80 / 87.5 / 95% AD)

Enemies True Sight icon.png revealed by Yordle Snap Trap Yordle Snap Trap always take Critical strike physical icon.png full damage from Piltover Peacemaker.

Info
  • Enemies hit while protected by a Spell Shield.png spell shield will still be considered a target for calculating damage for subsequent hits.
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the start of the cast time.

Edit

Yordle Snap Trap

Passive: Caitlyn periodically stocks a Yordle Snap Trap charge, up to a maximum amount.

Maximum Traps:
3 / 3 / 4 / 4 / 5
Yordle Snap Trap.png

Active: Caitlyn sets a visible Untargetable icon.png untargetable trap at the target location which grants Sight icon.png sight of the area for 1 second and arms after 1 second, lasting for a duration. After the maximum amount of traps is laid down, deploying another immediately destroys the oldest one.

Trap Duration:
30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50

The next enemy champion that springs the trap is Root icon.png rooted for 1.5 seconds, True Sight icon.png revealed for 3 seconds, takes additional damage from Headshot Headshot, and becomes immune to further Yordle Snap Traps for 3 seconds.

Headshot Headshot Damage Increase:
60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 (+ 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 / 100% bonus AD)

Info
  • Immunity vs Airborne icon.png Airborne moveblocks and Kinematics icon.png Kinematics?
  • If multiple traps are placed under an enemy, they will spring one at a time.

Edit

90 Caliber Net

90 Caliber Net.png

Active: Caitlyn fires a net in the target direction and Dash.png recoils 390 units in the opposite direction. The net deals magic damage to the first enemy hit and Slow icon.png slows them by 50% for 1 second.

Magic Damage:
70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 80% AP)

Caitlyn will not dash backwards if she is Stun icon.png immobilized or Grounded icon.png grounded during the cast time.

Caitlyn can cast any of her abilities while Dash.png dashing.

Info
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
  • The recoil can be used to pass through terrain.
  • If Caitlyn buffers Piltover Peacemaker Piltover Peacemaker during 90 Caliber Net's cast time, Piltover Peacemaker Piltover Peacemaker will start after the cast time.
    • If Caitlyn buffers an ability or basic attack during this ability's cast time, the buffered ability or basic attack will instead start after the dash ends.
    • Other abilities can be cast while Dash.png dashing if they are input after the cast time.
  • 90 Caliber Net's missile will fail to fire if Caitlyn is Suppression icon.png suppressed during the cast time.(bug)

Edit

Ace in the Hole

Ace in the Hole.png

Active: Caitlyn locks onto the target enemy champion and Channeling icon.png channels for 1 second, True Sight icon.png revealing them as well as Sight icon.png revealing herself.

Ace in the Hole is placed on a 5-second Cooldown icon.png cooldown if canceled.

Once Caitlyn completes the channel, she fires a homing bullet toward the target that deals physical damage to the first enemy champion it hits.

Physical damage:
300 / 525 / 750 (+ 200% bonus AD)

Info
  • The following will cancel Ace in the Hole's channel (mana expenditure is not compensated):
  • Ace in the Hole reveals the target and Caitlyn through a buff that lasts for up to 4 seconds.
    • The buff is applied to the target from the start of the cast time.
    • The buff ends prematurely when the channel is canceled or the bullet hits an enemy.
      • The target is revealed for 1 second if the buff is ended prematurely.
      • It is not removed if the cast time is cancelled or the bullet missile is destroyed.(bug)
  • The ability also goes on a 5-second Cooldown icon.png cooldown if Caitlyn enters Revival icon.png resurrection during the cast time.
    • The cast time does not end prematurely but the channel will be immediately canceled the moment the cast time completes.
  • If the target dies after the bullet has been fired, the shot will continue towards their corpse and may still hit other enemy champions.
  • The bullet has a Sight icon.png sight radius of 1500 attached to it.
  • If the target becomes Untargetable icon.png untargetable, Death.png dies, or is too far away or no longer in Sight icon.png sight during the cast time, this ability will cancel but does not go on Cooldown icon.png cooldown nor pay its cost (if applicable).
    • This excludes losing sight of the target.

    Original
    RP 880
    04.01.2011
    Renowned as its finest peacekeeper, Caitlyn is also Piltover’s best shot at ridding the city of its elusive criminal elements. She is often paired with Vi, acting as a cool counterpoint to her partner’s more impetuous nature. Even though she carries a one-of-a-kind hextech rifle, Caitlyn’s most powerful weapon is her superior intellect, allowing her to lay elaborate traps for any lawbreakers foolish enough to operate in the City of Progress.
