Notes

  • Energized attacks will not trigger all three energizing itemsKircheis Shard item.png Kircheis Shard, Rapid Firecannon item.png Rapid Firecannon and Statikk Shiv item.png Statikk Shiv in the same way; the highest instance of damage will apply to the primary target, and Statikk Shiv item.png Statikk Shiv will chain to nearby enemies even if attacking a structure, due to Rapid Firecannon item.png Rapid Firecannon allowing it to trigger on structures. Kircheis Shard item.png Kircheis Shard will not apply any damage, due to having the lowest damage of all three items.
  • The minimum attack range required for the +150 range cap is 428.57; however, due to the attack range values from champions, the closest is 430 (With Gnar Gnar's Rage Gene.png Rage Gene at level 6).
  • The lowest base movement speed in the game is 325. At this speed, Rapid Firecannon item.png Rapid Firecannon grants 16.25 movement speed.
  • The movement speed stat only increases flat movement speed, and will not interact with other percentage increases.
  • Firecannons range increase also works for Ekko Ekko's Phase Dive.png Phase Dive and Hecarim Hecarim's Devastating Charge.png Devastating Charge, both of which are melee attacks.
    • However, this does not work for Rengar Rengar's Unseen Predator.png Unseen Predator because Firecannon only increases attack range, not leap range.

Strategy

  • This item has the least amount of attack speed out of all attack speed/crit chance items. Unlike Statikk Shiv item.png Statikk Shiv, this item's energized strike is not applied in area of effect. In addition, it cannot crit, so unless the attack itself does not crit, it does less damage than Statikk Shiv would do.
  • Despite this, this item allows you to land a basic attack outside of your basic attack range. This is really good for situations where you need to take out a tower but enemies are defending it. You can also use it to poke your enemies from a safe distance, before engaging into a fight, which is especially useful if the enemies are strong enough to engage you if you enter into your basic attack range. Due to those reasons, Rapid Firecannon is one of the most commonly purchased attack speed/crit chance items.
  • This item is most commonly paired with Runaan's Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane, which make up for Rapid Firecannon's lack of waveclear compared to Statikk Shiv. It is also commonly purchased by caster ADCs which will purchase Essence Reaver item.png Essence Reaver instead of a second attack speed/crit chance item, as they do not really need a lot of attack speed and make good use of the extra range.
