Riot recently announced that Caitlyn is coming to Wild Rift. Wild Rift Caitlyn should mirror that of League of Legend’s. As a marksman ADC, Caitlyn provides great damage through auto attacks alongside utility through trap placements. Here are Wild Rift Caitlyn Abilities overview for the new champion
Passive – Headshot
Innate: Caitlyn Headshots target she has trapped or netted. Additionally, she gains a free headshot every 6 basic attacks; attacks while in brush count as 2.
- Deal bonus damage to non-champions
- Have double range against trapped or netted targets
This move provides Caitlyn her standard DPS. Procing on enemies snared by her trap, alongside those hit y her net, Headshot should be treated similarly to Jhin’s fourth auto attack. In essence, it deals massive damage and rounds out Caitlyn’s damage.
First Ability – Piltover Peacemaker
Active: Revs the rifle for 1 second to fire a narrow piercing shot dealing physical damage. After hitting any target, it opens into a wider shot that deals 33% less damage.
Always deals full damage to trap revealed targets.
This skill shot distinguishes the pro Caitlyns from the amateurs. Understanding player movement and the effective range is essential for Caitlyn’s burst damage potential.
Second Ability – Yordle Snap Trap
Active: Sets traps that an enemy Champion can spring, immobilizing them for 2 seconds and revealing them for a short duration.
Several traps may be active at once.
Trapped enemies take increased damage from Headshot.
Yordle Snap Trap allows Caitlyn to extend the duration of crowd control. Simply place one right under the locked down enemy to keep them still for even longer. In addition, since multiple traps can be placed simultaneously, place the traps strategically to zone key sections of the map.
Third Ability – 90 Caliber Net
Active: Fires a net, knocking Caitlyn backwards. The net deals magic damage and slows the first enemy hit by 50% for 1 second.
This is Caitlyn’s only escape, but can also be used as a combo extender. Since the ability knocks Caitlyn backwards, 90 Caliber Net allows Caitlyn to jump walls alongside create distance between her and her enemies.
Ultimate Ability – Ace in a Hole
Active: Takes a second to line up the perfect shot on an enemy Champion at long range. The shot deals physical damage, but other enemy Champions can intercept it.
Ace in a hole is Caitlyn’s signature sniping tool. Since enemy champions can intercept the bullet, angle the shot to weave through confused enemies. The best way to utilize the move is to target an isolated champion.
