Guide to Synergizing Caitlyn and Vel'Koz

Tips for Playing as Caitlyn with Vel'Koz

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 Vel'Koz Will Play

Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.

Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.

When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.
