Guide to Synergizing Caitlyn and Heimerdinger

Tips for Playing as Caitlyn with Heimerdinger

Fire 90 Caliber Net away from the opponent to close the gap or hop over walls.

Avoid using Ace in the Hole in large team melees as it might be blocked by the wrong target.

Make use of her Yordle Snap Traps by placing them pre-emptively to ensure that you'll have one off of cooldown during combat.

Advice to Understand How Heimerdinger Will Play

Spreading out Hextech Micro-Rockets leads to more reliable damage and more efficiency against multiple targets, but focusing it creates the biggest impact.

Turret placement can be a deciding factor in a battle. Against most enemies turrets are best when they can support each other, but if the enemy has a lot of area of effect damage your turrets can be destroyed quickly. Placing turrets in brush can lead to a surprise attack in your favor.

The success of Electron Storm Grenade is very important to Heimerdinger's survival. The slow and stun both are capable of keeping enemies in place long enough to punish them, but it is also the first line of defense against a surprise attack.
