Playing As Teemo Teemo
  • Teemo Teemo's Noxious Trap.png mushrooms can be used to farm creep waves very effectively.
  • Place your Noxious Trap.png mushrooms at key locations on the map, such as by the Dragon Dragon or Baron Nashor Baron Nashor, to reveal when your enemies might be attempting to kill them.
Playing Against Teemo Teemo


Ability Usage
  • Sometimes it is better to stand still and go into Camouflage.png Camouflage for an escape mechanism than to use Move Quick.png Move Quick or Recall.png Recall.
  • Unlike other stealth abilities, Teemo Teemo loses Camouflage.png Camouflage if knocked up.
  • When playing Teemo Teemo not in mid lane, an easy way to get First Blood is to use Camouflage.png Camouflage just out of range of their turrets' sight or at the edge of the bush closest to their turret, and wait for the enemy champion to start farming. When they move about right next to you, Ignite.png Ignite and kill them with the help of the mid lane champion if necessary. Exhaust.png Exhaust would be useful with this . 
  • Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart can be used to harass effectively and can help Teemo Teemo kill physical champions in fights.
    • Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart with Exhaust.png Exhaust can destroy a champion who relies heavily on physical attacks like Tryndamere Tryndamere or Caitlyn Caitlyn. Apply blind first then apply Exhaust.png Exhaust after the blind has worn off. This will allow your blind CD to refresh while your enemy is exhausted, minimizing their DPS. If you use both at the same time, the blind will override the attack damage/ability power reduction. Similarly, you can use these two abilities on two champions, effectively taking them out of the battle for a few seconds.
  • Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart can be used as an autoattack timer reset. This is extremely important to learn how to use throughout the game. Opening with a normal attack, immediately using Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart, then proceeding to autoattack will apply great burst damage, even during laning. Try mastering this combo to use it on the fly and you'll increase your ability power/attack speed damage tremendously.
  • If Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart is used on Warwick Warwick's Infinite Duress.png Infinite Duress it will stop the damage from the attacks but the on-hit affects will still apply, this will dramatically decrease the damage taken.
  • Use Move Quick.png Move Quick to get back to lane quicker.
  • Move Quick.png Move Quick can also be used to get from lane to lane very quickly, allowing you to help out in fights all over the map.
  • Using Ignite.png Ignite with your poison can ensure kills on fleeing enemies.
  • One is to place some Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap in your lane and wait for the enemy to push. After this, go into Camouflage.png Camouflage. Then, after the enemy runs into a couple of Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps, use Blinding Dart.png Blinding Dart and auto attacks to finish them.
  • Placing a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap or two behind the first turret and before the 2nd near the paths to the jungle but not in the minions' path can turn an almost kill into an easy kill.
  • Teemo Teemo's Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap can be used to farm creep waves very effectively; it is best to keep your mushrooms spread out and not too close to each other. If a lane has enemy minions stacking on each other (especially the ranged minions), pop a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap down in the middle of them and watch them all die in just a few seconds. Use this only if you need to stop a wave immediately or stop future waves, because it is necessary to maximize potential damage by increasing the number of active shrooms on the map to win. More shrooms = more chances of hitting them = more net damage.
  • Put a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap at key locations on the map, such as by Dragon Dragon or Baron Nashor Baron Nashor to reveal when your enemies might be attempting to kill them or to prevent ganking and make counter ganks. This is similar to a Warding Totem item.png Warding Totem but the range that Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap reveals is much smaller.
    • Tip: Place two, one near the opening and one behind the monster. The front one will explode after an enemy steps on it, thwarting them from starting Baron Nashor Baron Nashor or Dragon Dragon, while the back one will allow you to see the health of the monster and whether it is being attacked.
    • Depending on the enemy teams melee/range makeup, you can put a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap to the side of Baron Nashor Baron Nashor to reveal 1-2 enemy melee champions, or you can place them a little behind the side of the baron if there are 3 or more. This will usually reveal enemy melee champions currently attempting to slay Baron Nashor Baron Nashor.
    • Make sure to place the Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap out of the path of the Rift Scuttler Rift Scuttler or kill it in advance, since it will trigger shrooms.
  • Put a Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap inside brushes and entrances to your lanes or your team's side of the map to ensure maximum safety.
  • When fighting against a Twisted Fate Twisted Fate, be careful because if he uses Destiny.png Destiny any Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps near any ally will be revealed.
  • When laying down Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps in the jungle, keep in mind that the champion movement pathing often hugs the terrain as they take the shortest route to the selected location. Laying traps against walls at turning points will increase the chance enemies will run into them on their way to/from lanes. Placing down shrooms in the center will allow for a more permanent ward (sometimes).
  • Also, when laying traps in a lane, remember that minions travel through the middle, and if the front minion runs into it only he and one minion behind him will be hit. Placing them on the sides can increase the chances of hitting a champion.
  • Placing two to three Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps by the enemy red or blue buff is generally a good idea considering you might just get lucky and steal it from them while slowing their farming down.
  • It's sometimes a good idea to place a few Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps behind you before entering a teamfight, that way if you begin to lose, your team can run off and lead the enemy right into a minefield.
  • If planting mushrooms at Dragon Dragon or Baron Nashor Baron Nashor, they will provide vision if placed off to the side.
  • Don't forget that Noxious Trap.png Noxious Trap can be placed down in team fights and only has a short time to arm. Doing this could secure a kill or slow down an enemy when he/she is trying to escape.
  • If you are suspecting a possible towerdive from an opposing champion, place Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps behind and in front of your turret in order to slow and deal damage to the enemy.
  • If an enemy is engaging you at melee range, Noxious Trap.png Noxious Traps can be used to peel them off you by placing one underneath you and stepping backwards.
