The champions keep on coming from Riot Games with the new ADC, Samira. The sword and gun-wielding, Desert Rose, will be on Summoners Rift in the next few weeks. That said, players can go test her on the PBE likely in the next week. Before jumping into games with her, it might be worth knowing what she does. So, here is a look at Samira’s abilities.
