Guide to Countering Caitlyn

  • Stand behind minions to minimize damage from Caitlyn's Piltover Peacemaker.
  • Caitlyn counters most close range ADCs. Her large range and 90 Caliber Net ability help keep her out of their short range.
  • Caitlyn will often place snap traps inside of brush where she will thinks you will first enter. Be careful when seeking cover in brush, as you may be putting yourself in even more danger.
  • Intercept Ace in the Hole's missile to protect an allied teammate. If you are out of range, you may be able to flash to intercept the shot. If you are protecting your ally, it may be better to stand still so your teammate doesn't accidentally walk out from behind your cover in the confusion.
