Tips

Playing As TwitchSquare Twitch
  • TwitchSquare Twitch's Attack Speed is among the highest in the game; try purchasing items with on-hit effect such as The Black Cleaver item Black Cleaver or Wit's End item Wit's End.
  • Contaminate Contaminate has a large range; apply as many stacks of Deadly Venom Deadly Venom as possible before using it.
  • You can catch up to an enemy out of attack range with Venom Cask Venom Cask
Playing Against TwitchSquare Twitch
  • TwitchSquare Twitch is fragile. Work with teammates to focus on him when you're able to catch him out of Ambush invisibility.
  • Spell Shields won't block the damage from Deadly Venom Deadly Venom, but they will block the effects TwitchSquare Twitch can trigger with it.
  • If you suspect TwitchSquare Twitch has left the lane, let your teammates know that TwitchSquare Twitch is "MIA."

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Be careful when using Ambush Ambush near enemy turrets, as they can see invisible units.
  • It is always good to use Ambush Ambush to scout brushes and to look for enemies.
  • Twitch can be very good at chipping away an opponent's health with the true damage from his passive. After hitting an opponent a few times, throw Venom Cask Venom Cask to hit enemies at long range and add two poison ticks, but more importantly to extend the amount of time they are taking damage from your poison.
  • TwitchSquare Twitch's Ambush Ambush has a timer. Watching the timer is very important when using stealth. TwitchSquare Twitch is very good at scouting ahead of his allies while stealthed.
  • When the first hit with Spray and Pray Spray and Pray is a critical strike, all the units hit with that shot will suffer critical strike damage.
  • Play cautiously around characters with crowd control. TwitchSquare Twitch's low health makes him especially vulnerable to bursts of damage.
  • Be careful of enemy champions who have Control Ward item Control Wards or a Sweeping Lens item Sweeping Lens as well as champions who have abilities that can detect stealth, such as MorganaSquare Morgana's Soul Shackles Soul Shackles. This makes TwitchSquare Twitch unable to scout safely or move close enough for a kill.
  • Spray and Pray Spray and Pray is a very good ability to use during teamfights, because you can hit all 5 members of the opposing team.
  • At high levels and assuming that you are a skilled TwitchSquare Twitch player and a skilled jungler, you can move TwitchSquare Twitch into the jungle. He is weak when it comes to farming in the jungle for long periods of time, however his ganks with red buff go unparalleled.
    • TwitchSquare Twitch can function as a attack damage carry in bot lane as well, and is best supported by a character that can hold the lane 1v2 while he ganks.
    • When ganking, Ambush Ambush should be used early, so as not to be caught by regular wards on your way over. When you arrive at your destination, if your stealth timer is low, sit in a bush and wait to re-stealth prior to jumping on your opponent.
    • At the start of the match, try waiting until the enemy jungler finishes killing blue, then kill him. If successful, this provides a substantial early game lead and can shut down junglers that scale into late game(AmumuSquare Amumu, OlafSquare Olaf, etc.)
  • If you take Ambush Ambush first, use it sparingly so that you don't run out of mana early game.
    • Taking Ambush Ambush early game allows TwitchSquare Twitch to check bushes without taking too much damage and allows him to counter jungle more efficiently.
  • If you take Contaminate Contaminate first, use the damage to farm effectively. Do not use it to harass unless you have six stacks of Deadly Venom Deadly Venom, otherwise you will run out of mana trying to harass and farm at the same time.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
Countering
  • Work with your team to focus on TwitchSquare Twitch when he comes out of the stealth as he is extremely squishy.
  • The easy way to counter TwitchSquare Twitch is to purchase a Sweeping Lens item Sweeping Lens to detect him when he is stealthed or placing a Control Ward item Control Ward in a path where you think TwitchSquare Twitch usually stays.
  • Keep your allies spread if TwitchSquare Twitch is using his Spray and Pray Spray and Pray.
    • Keep in mind that it also procs on hit-effect such as life steal and critical strikes, allowing TwitchSquare Twitch to wipe out your team single-handedly.
  • Very few ADC's can match TwitchSquare Twitch's power with a full build, if you want to duel him you must be way more fed than him or be an APC or assassin, else you will not be able to match his damage.
  • When TwitchSquare Twitch is no longer seen in lane, let your allies know by calling mia/ss, lowering his high ganking potential with Ambush Ambush.
  • Due to his low health, hard CC such as stuns and snares are devastating to him.
  • TwitchSquare Twitch's late game power is extremely high, as he can burst down entire teams - don't let him get to that point!
  • TwitchSquare Twitch can easily backdoor as Spray and Pray Spray and Pray lets him outrange turrets, this however leaves him somewhat weaker, as he loses the powerful damage boost from Spray and Pray Spray and Pray.
