Summoners Rift Brush Locations

Locations of brush patches in Summoner's Rift.

Brush is the tall grassy terrain on a map that provides a champion (or minion/monster) a form of stealth. Upon entering the brush, the unit immediately turns invisible to enemies outside of that particular patch of brush. The unit will remain invisible until it has either left the brush or was scouted by an ability, item or an enemy unit, or engages in any kind of attack.

  • This stealth does not make your champion invisible, but hides you from units outside of that brush. You will not be revealed by stealth detections that are not placed in the brush.


Visually, this effect manifests when your champion's avatar takes on a partially transparent quality. Opposing units in different patches of brush will not be able to see each other even if they are within normal sight range.

Brush can be used in several ways to create a tactical advantage on the battlefield. First, and perhaps most apparently, one can utilize the brush to set an ambush for an enemy champion, emerging once they have passed by to cut off their escape. Brush can also be used, while fleeing, to break the line of sight and force pursuing champions to guess which direction you have gone. It can also be used to dodge passing minion waves, to hide your champion while he channels recall, or to force a ranged champion too close to melee range to continue their attack.

Wards are subject to the same limitations surrounding brush as other units. A ward placed inside a patch of brush can reveal the area inside the brush, as well as the area surrounding it. A Vision Ward item.png Vision Ward placed outside of a brush will not be able to see enemies inside. Because of this, it is often preferable to place wards within a brush.

  • Brush in a lane can be used to find out if the enemy has sight into a particular patch of brush. If you are in the brush, not attacking, and minions begin to attack you, then they have sight into that brush.

If an attack skill that is not a skillshot is used while in the brush, the champion using that skill will be revealed for a short time. Your champion will also be revealed when you auto-attack from within a brush. If an ally attacks from a brush, you will also be seen. Brush is subject to line of sight. For example, on Summoner's Rift, opposing units on both ends of the brush at blue buff will not be able to see each other due to a wall in between the edges of that brush.

Ways to reveal areas in the Brush

There are several ways to reveal an area in brush:

Champion Abilities

Some champions possess abilities that directly, or more often, indirectly let you see into an area that is usually subject to the Fog of War or units within them, such as Brush. Almost every AoE ability can reveal an opponent in its range.

Reveal targeted area

Reveal enemy champions and their immediate surroundings

Reveal enemy champions when hit by the ability

Detect enemy champions with skill shots

If a player fires a skill shot into the brush, it won't make them visible even if you hit them. However many of them have a secondary effect or a different sound effect on impact. Here are just a few examples (not a complete list):

Buffs for being in Brush

  • NidaleeSquare.png Nidalee's Prowl.png Prowl grants her 15% extra movement speed for two seconds when in the brush.
  • CaitlynSquare.png Caitlyn's Headshot.png Headshot adds 2 charges when attacking from the brushes instead of 1.
  • KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix's Unseen Threat.png Unseen Threat causes his next basic attack to deal bonus magic damage and slow the target by 25% for 2 seconds.
