12-Gauge: Each of Graves's basic attacks consumes 1 shell and sprays 4 pellets in a cone. Enemies hit take 70 - 100 (based on level)% ADphysical damage plus 「 a third of that damage 」「 23.3 - 33.3 (based on level)% AD 」 damage for every pellet that hit them beyond the first. Critical strikes spray 6 pellets over a 50% wider cone and deal 40% × (1 + bonus critical damage) AD additional physical damage. Graves's basic attacks deals 25 % reduced damage against turrets.
Buckshot:Pellets stop at the first enemy unit or structure they hit, meaning Graves is not guaranteed to hit his primary target. Each pellet will apply on-hit effects but enemies will only be affected by them once per shell. Non-champion units hit by more than one pellet are knocked back.
Double Barrel:Graves' shotgun Destiny holds up to 2 shells. After firing both shells or sitting on one for 4 seconds without attacking, Gravesreloads, which takes 2.08 seconds. Reload Speed is reduced by 0.5% for every 1% bonus Attack Speed, to a minimum of 1.56 - 1.12 (based on level) seconds.
Graves's reload speed in the form of Reloads per Second:
Reload Speed: 0.481 (+50% bonus Attack Speed)
Reload Speed Cap: 0.642 - 0.891 (based on level).
The in-game HUD displays Graves's Reload Speed in place of his Attack Speed. This is a visual bug, and his attack speed behaves normally.
Graves's bonus Attack Speed Growth will affect his Reload Speed, although is halved just like other sources of bonus attack speed.
The in-game tooltip for New Destiny states that bonus attack speed is less effective toward his reload time, which is true, but that it improves his attack speed dramatically, which appears to be false. His attack speed appears to function normally when compared to other champions - i.e. 100% bonus Attack Speed increases his base attack speed by 100%.
Given the right circumstances pellets can go around and beyond the intended target thus damaging other enemies.
If Graves is blindedpellets will fly in a random direction (excluding his target's) but he can still damage nearby enemy units.
Structures will intercept and be hit by multiple pellets, as with other valid targets.
Units that take modified damage (wards, Zz'Rot Portal) can only be damaged by one pellet per attack and will not intercept additional ones.
After 2 seconds, or after 0.25 upon impacting with a structure or terrain, the round detonates dealing physical damage to all enemies in a wide perpendicular area and in a reverse wave along the powder trail.
Active:Graves fires a smoke canister at the target area, dealing magic damage to all nearby enemies, briefly slowing them upon impact, and creating a cloud of smoke for 4 seconds that applies nearsight of outside the area to all enemies within.
Active:Gravesdashes in the target direction, resetting his attack timer, reloading one shell and gaining a stack of True Grit for 4 seconds, stacking up to 8 times. Dashing towards an enemy instantly grants 2 stacks of True Grit.
Each pellet reduces Quickdraw's cooldown by 0.5 seconds upon impacting an enemy.
True Grit:Graves gains bonus armor. Attacks versus non-minions will refresh the duration of True Grit.
Active:Graves fires an explosive shell in the target direction, dealing physical damage to every non-champion enemy it passes through as well as the first enemy champion it collides with, while also dashing in the opposite direction.
