FAQs About Caitlyn
What is Caitlyn's greatest strength?
Caitlyn's range is likely her greatest strength. This lets her farm and harass in lane with relative ease. That's great because she has a relatively weak late-game compared. Many other ADCs end up dealing more damage than her. To stay relevant, keep up your farm and use your range to your advantage. Don't overextend. Focus on increasing your AD and critical strike damage with your Caitlyn build.
Where should I place Caitlyn's traps?
Caitlyn's traps can be used for two purposes: 1) to trap unsuspecting enemies to get a kill and 2) to protect her from flanking or other fast closers. In the early game you will probably use them more to trap enemies. In the late game, you may need to use them more for protection.
