Playing As Miss Fortune Miss Fortune
  • Miss Fortune ramps up Strut.png speed if she hasn't recently taken damage. Avoid getting hit to move very fast.
  • Use Double Up.png Double Up on the furthest enemy minion if enemy champions are hiding in back; it will bounce to them for lots of damage.
  • Make sure to utilize Love Tap.png Love Tap while Strut.png Strut is on cooldown to maximize the active's availability.
Playing Against Miss Fortune Miss Fortune
  • Miss Fortune's Strut.png speed boost is removed if she is damaged by an enemy.
  • Miss Fortune is easy to kill if you can reach her; target her first in team fights.


Ability Usage
  • Love Tap.png Love Tap allows Miss Fortune to deal extra damage whenever she switches targets. Using the bonus damage makes last-hitting and harassing easier, but be wary of overextending.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune ramps up movement speed with Strut.png Strut if she isn't attacked by an enemy unit. Avoid getting hit to keep the passive. This is exceptional when it comes to reaching lanes or closing distances fast, especially when it is leveled up.
  • Use Double Up.png Double Up to harass enemy champions. Casting it on an enemy minion or champion if an enemy champion are behind them will result in it bouncing off towards them for extra damage, especially if they are not marked by Love Tap.png Love Tap.
    • Using Double Up.png Double Up as a final blow increases the damage for the upcoming target it hits.
  • Double Up.png Double Up bounces back in the direction of the skill cast. Moving to position the bounce direction does not work.
  • Double Up.png Double Up can hit enemies in bushes, even without vision. Use this to your advantage by bouncing it off a visible minion/enemy champion, in the champion's vicinity.
  • Strut.png Strut's cooldown is lowered while Love Tap.png Love Tap is applied to targets.
  • Use Strut.png Strut's active component to take down turrets faster. Since the attack speed buff does not last very long, try to attack different targets in between turret attacks to shorten its cooldown, and potentially keep the buff active for longer periods of time.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain slows enemy units. Use it to prevent low-health enemy champions from escaping and get your teammates an extra kill, or fire it behind you while running (with caution) to slow enemy pursuers.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain has a noticeable cast time when activated, so be cautious when using it to run away from an opponent. You can compensate for the loss of movement by using Ghost.png Ghost or Flash.png Flash.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain provides sight where it is activated, so use it on brush or gank spots to avoid being ganked.
  • Use Make It Rain.png Make It Rain before using Bullet Time.png Bullet Time to keep your enemies in Bullet Time.png Bullet Time's area of effect.
  • Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is able to go through walls; use it to surprise tower-hugging enemies.
  • Take advantage of an ally stun or snare, like Curse of the Sad Mummy.png Curse of the Sad Mummy or Dazzle.png Dazzle, in order to maximize Bullet Time.png Bullet Time's damage.
  • Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is a channeling ability, so a stun or a silence can interrupt it. Be sure that you are out of range to enemy champions with Crowd Control while casting Bullet Time.png Bullet Time so that it can not be interrupted.
  • Her ultimate is great for stealing Baron Nashor, but be sure to use it quickly.
  • Given Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's high movement speed from Strut.png Strut, she could do a "hit and run" tactic to bully her lane opponent, which is attainable by maxing out Double Up.png Double Up. Let the passive charge up, rush toward the enemy, hit them with Double Up.png Double Up and run! This tactic becomes easier to pull off when levels are put into Strut.png Strut.
Mastery Usage
  • Warlord&#039;s Bloodlust mastery 2016.png Warlord's Bloodlust is good for in-lane sustain, especially if used in conjunction with Strut - using it against a big wave of minions can get your health up quickly.
  • Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree synergizes well with Make It Rain.png Make It Rain and Bullet Time.png Bullet Time - it triggers upon the third instance of damage (for both abilities), and it is a good form of harassment when used with Make It Rain.png Make It Rain.
  • Fervor of Battle mastery 2016.png Fervor of Battle is good for stacking damage against champions through continuous auto-attacks.
Item Usage
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is a team-oriented Marksman that can be played in different ways, offering her team an array of options few other Marksmen can match with superb damage. In exchange, she trades any escape mechanism and safety, making her very vulnerable during teamfights and, overall, an easy target to focus. 
  • Being a strong bully in lane, Miss Fortune Miss Fortune benefits from attack damage greatly. Sometimes a Doran&#039;s Blade item.png Doran's Blade or two can set her ahead due to sustain and bonus health. Given her natural dominance in the early stage of the game, any small lead can become a big advantage for Miss Fortune Miss Fortune.
    • Alternatively, Cull item.png Cull can be bought as a substitute if she needs the extra gold income, although this does forfeit the bonus health.
  • Youmuu&#039;s Ghostblade item.png Youmuu's Ghostblade grants some much-needed cooldown reduction and attack damage, as well as some armor penetration. The active on this item scales well with Strut.png Strut's passive and active components, and the cooldown reduction is especially useful since Bullet Time.png Bullet Time does have quite a lenghty cooldown.
  • Because of her back-line nature, The Bloodthirster item.png The Bloodthirster works very well as a core item for Miss Fortune Miss Fortune. The bonus AD is great on her and the sustain is essential, and the shield can be used to farm jungle camps without losing the speed bonus from Strut.png Strut.
  • A common strategy is to build around Bullet Time.png Bullet Time by getting The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver; start a team fight with a heavy AoE CC or lock-down move and unleash Bullet Time.png Bullet Time. Since it deals physical damage in such a large cone, it applies The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver stacks very quickly to all the targets hit. This can cause massive armor shred and damage in the first seconds of a fight, giving Miss Fortune Miss Fortune and her team a great advantage.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune benefits from Phantom Dancer item.png Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge - the former provides damage reduction in 1v1 situations, while the latter boosts her crits substantially.
  • Lord Dominik&#039;s Regards item.png Lord Dominik's Regards is useful against enemies who are stacking health and armor, while Mortal Reminder item.png Mortal Reminder is useful against enemies stacking health regen and armor due to it applying Grievous Wounds.
  • With Essence Reaver item.png Essence Reaver, getting critical strikes will allow Miss Fortune Miss Fortune to regain mana, which is especially useful since she doesn't build mana and Bullet Time.png Bullet Time does cost quite a bit of mana.
  • As one of the less mobile Marksmen once in battle, a Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Banshee's Veil can prevent or at least deter enemies from spending a valuable spell on Miss Fortune Miss Fortune. Preferred against teams with very few important crowd control spells or large nukes.
  • Alternatively, a Quicksilver Sash item.png Quicksilver Sash can provide magic resistance and the ability to remove powerful crowd control spells. Plus, it can later be built into Mercurial Scimitar item.png Mercurial Scimitar, which provide the same benefits plus some lifesteal and a substantial AD increase.
  • Rapid Firecannon item.png Rapid Firecannon is good for boosting single-target damage output and pushing turrets, while Statikk Shiv item.png Statikk Shiv is good for faster wave clears.
  • Another common pick for Marksmen is Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel, which makes Miss Fortune Miss Fortune less attractive as a primary target. However, beware; roaming and dying to enemies when teammates are at distance renders Item.png Items passive useless.
  • Hexdrinker item.png Hexdrinker is another good early pick, albeit not common on Marksmen. It helps by defending against strong magic damage nukes like Veigar Veigar's Primordial Burst.png Primordial Burst and preventing spells like Karthus Karthus's Requiem.png Requiem from finishing Miss Fortune Miss Fortune off. Also, it can be upgraded to Maw of Malmortius item.png Maw of Malmortius later on, providing even more AD.
  • Another unconventional choice for Marksmen is Randuin&#039;s Omen item.png Randuin's Omen. This item should be considered however, when the enemy team has strong threats that rely on auto attacking such as bruisers and enemy marksmen. 
  • Although it is not often considered, Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force has great synergy with Miss Fortune Miss Fortune as the Spellblade passive amplifies the damage of Double Up.png Double Up's first hit substantially. It also gives her more movement speed than most other items, as well as attack damage, health and mana. The Rage passive will also allow Miss Fortune Miss Fortune to move much quicker than she normally does when catching up to enemy champions. Cooldown reduction would be recommended in order to get the most out of the build.
  • Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane is a good item if you need to split push quickly and clear out large minion waves. However, Love Tap.png Love Tap does not interact with the additional bolts fired, so consider this when buying one.
  • Most of Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's abilities provide AP ratios as well, so an AP build can be used with pleasing results. Although not considered viable at a competitive level, the build can still deal good damage with reasonable results.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is a rather squishy champion like most other ranged AD carries; pressuring her in lane will force her to play safe and minimize her utility.
  • Punish Miss Fortune Miss Fortune if she overextends to harass with Love Tap.png Love Tap.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune has no escaping abilities besides Strut.png Strut. Harassing her frequently will minimize the effect of its passive component.
    • If Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is hit by any source of damage (even minion damage), Strut.png Strut is immediately removed. Take advantage of this by harassing her whenever her speed boost is removed.
    • Activating Strut.png Strut instantly applies the movement speed boost, so constantly damaging Miss Fortune Miss Fortune will keep her movement speed low.
  • Quickly move away from Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's Make It Rain.png Make It Rain and Bullet Time.png Bullet Time to avoid taking damage.
    • Running straight backwards from Bullet Time.png Bullet Time can often be one of the worst things you can do, because it has a long range and a widening cone - move sideways or even towards Miss Fortune Miss Fortune if at melee range to escape Bullet Time.png Bullet Time faster.
    • Be wary of Thunderlord's Decree - it works well with Make It Rain.png Make It Rain and Bullet Time.png Bullet Time, especially towards the late game when Miss Fortune Miss Fortune starts building more attack damage.
  • Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is a channeling ability, so save a disable for Miss Fortune Miss Fortune when she channels it.
  • Although Miss Fortune Miss Fortune has a magic damage ability, most of her damage is physical, so armor should be prioritized if she has a substantial lead.
  • If being chased by Miss Fortune Miss Fortune, landing a ranged ability or auto attack will act as a slow on her since it removes Strut.png Strut long enough for you to escape.
