Champion Sneak Peek: Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover

By ByronicHero [1]


Officials from Piltover would like me to issue a statement to all of you. It is my duty to inform you that there is a new sheriff in town. The beautiful (and stylish) Caitlyn Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover, has arrived at the League of Legends, so bandits, ruffians, rabble-rousers, and otherwise uncouth persons beware! Of course, even if you're on the run, one look at her and you might not want to escape anymore. Of course, you don't need to have a warrant out for your arrest to get a closer look at this pretty lady. Whether you're an outlaw type or someone who plays by the rules, I've got the publicity shots for you right here!

2016 Season Update

Caitlyn Caitlyn's on the hunt as Piltover's premier sharpshooter. Siege down enemy turrets while picking off fleeing enemies. [2]

Caitlyn's Yordle Snap Trap.png traps now run on ammo, so the sheriff can lay down up to three at a time, and while trapped enemies no longer suffer damage, Caitlyn can hit them with a basic attack at much longer range to deal instant Headshot.png Headshot damage. She gets the same bonus off enemies caught by her 90 Caliber Net.png 90 Caliber Net, too. Finally, we're tweaking Cait's Piltover Peacemaker.png Piltover Peacemaker, making the initial shot much thinner until it strikes a target - then her round bursts open and deals reduced damage to everything behind it.


Caitlyn headshots every few basic attacks (attacks while in brush count for additional stacks) or when attacking a target she has Yordle Snap Trap.png trapped or 90 Caliber Net.png netted. Headshot now scales with Caitlyn's critical strike chance, and its range is doubled against Yordle Snap Trap.png trapped or 90 Caliber Net.png netted targets.
