Caitlyn is a very strong late game carry and lane bully and as she can harass you sooo hard that you have to sit by the turret most of the times and just farm. There is no way to stop her even with jungle ganks early she will be fine because she has traps and 90-caliber net to ensure her safety. [highlight]Pros[/highlight] -Good range -Lane dominant -Escape -Sieging turrets -Passive is good for dragons and barons [highlight]Cons[/highlight] -Weak without items -Will die instantly if placed in a bad position due to low hp

Reds: really good for harass early game and last hitting Yellows: Armor is the best in slot for ad carries Blues: MR is definitely the best in slot, its literally 24 FREE MR at level 18 Quints: 2 lifesteal quints for the sustain and 1 ad quint for the extra dmg Most of you guys are asking "why lifesteal quints?". Well, when you have 5% lifesteal (mastery) your lifesteal around 10 hp, an auto attack with dorans and that is enough sustain. You should never buy lifesteal unless you fell really far behind. If you're going to go into lifesteal, you should grab BotRK.

[title][img=skills/caitlyn/p.png] Passive: Headshot[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Very good passive for late game, fast dragons fast barons enhanced crits [title][img=skills/caitlyn/q.png] Q: Piltover Peacemaker[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Best wave clear for an ADC, great in lane because the poke provides and hard range. The only downside to this is that, it's fairly hard to hit. In late game, you probably don't want to use it because the wind up time will take away an auto or two only time you would use it is when you do the [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/e.png] [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/q.png] combo. [title][img=skills/caitlyn/w.png] W: Yordle Snap Trap[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Should preemptively set up traps around the dragon area when shit is going down. Also its really good for pressuring your lane. You should put it on those spots. [title][img=skills/caitlyn/e.png] E: 90 Caliber Net[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Very good defensive and offensive ability can combo with E+Q. To do this, you just put it on smartcast click[imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/e.png] and then spam [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/q.png]. [title][img=skills/caitlyn/r.png] R: Ace in the Hole[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] If you think a fight is gonna happen within the next 10 seconds, just use it on a squishy target and then fight. Would advise not to use in a middle of teamfight unless you need it is stronger than your 1 auto attack

This part of the game you wanna maximize zoning or getting the turret as fast as possible. You must open with [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/q.png] going [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/w.png] makes you lose a lot of pressure. Once you get to lane push up, try to get level 2 before the enemy does. Once you hit level 2, go for harass, maximizing harass is hitting the enemy move backwards because you probably got creeps attacking you now. Just go in for the attack anyways, you wanna minimize the damage you take with each harass.

Late game pretty simple just kill everything and group up, set up traps at objectives and that's all.

[img=champ/ashe.png] She's actually one of the ad carries that can actually tolerate Caitlyn poke because she starts with 600 range. So some people are wondering why not pick ashe over cait, well cait has an escape :) [img=champ/corki.png] Very easy lane for caitlyn when he goes for a creep. Just attack him for free, he cannot prevent this. It will result in either miss creep to save hp or take creep and get hit and corki has really low base hp. [img=champ/draven.png] One of the harder lanes to beat. With this lane, you have to push up as hard as you can to level 1. Otherwise, if he gets behind your creeps you're going to have a hard time as caitlyn can't trade with a draven. [img=champ/ezreal.png] Very easy matchup just like Corki. Just harass when he goes for autos. Try to take as little mystic shots as possible though otherwise he could kill you if you are less than half. [img=champ/graves.png] Very easy to beat 525 range. You have a whole 175 range over him but for graves you need to set up defensive traps because he can quickdraw and out trade you but generally same concept. Get him when he goes for creeps but watch out for buckshots though! [img=champ/kogmaw.png] has 500 range... once again you destroy kog'maw very easily. Force him under the turret kogmaw doesn't have any base ad to get the creeps without a good supports help [img=champ/missfortune.png] MF is actually one of the harder lanes. If her passive is up she can just run at you, double up and auto attack. To deal with this, you have to harass her every 5 seconds so her passive can't come up [img=champ/quinn.png] 525 range... again very easy lane. Harass when she goes for creeps [img=champ/tristana.png] Tristana, once she levels up she could get stronger. So it's essential that you shut her down by at least 50 cs otherwise she'll outscale you and inevitably carry harder. [img=champ/twitch.png] With Twitch, you just need to watch out for stealth. Be careful when harassing him because he can venom cask and expunge which does more damage. Also, remember to keep in mind of his support [img=champ/varus.png] One of the harder lanes, he has 575 range and a really easy skill shot to hit. Will need high skill with cait to tolerate this lane [img=champ/vayne.png] Easiest lane for Cait, you literally can hit her everytime. When she tumbles to hit you, just [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/e.png] [imgsmall=skills/caitlyn/q.png] very simple concept! a full game check it out an example of falling behind.
