Caitlyn ADC - General Playstyle:

Laning Phase:

Caitlyn's long range allows her to poke and harass enemies easily. Use Q to poke and push the wave. Place traps in strategic locations to zone enemies.

Mid Game:

Focus on securing objectives and pushing towers. Caitlyn's range and traps make her excellent at sieging.

Late Game:

Position safely in teamfights, using your range to your advantage. Prioritize key targets and use E for self-peel.

Teamfights as Caitlyn:

Stay in the backline and prioritize safety. Use E and traps for self-peel and kiting. Target the closest threat unless a high-priority target is out of position.

Dragon and Baron Fights as Caitlyn:

For Dragons and Barons, use traps to zone enemies and provide vision. Stay behind your team and use your range to safely DPS the objective.

Caitlyn ADC - Matchups:

Bad Matchup: Leona (Three stuns and a lot of health. Dodge her E and focus the enemy ADC.)

Good Synergy: Blitzcrank (A good Blitzcrank can set up easy kills. When he hooks or knocks up an enemy, place a trap behind them.)
