Playing As Twitch Twitch
Playing Against Twitch Twitch
  • Twitch Twitch is fragile. Work with teammates to focus on him when you're able to catch him out of Ambush.png invisibility.
  • Spell Shields won't block the damage from Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom, but they will block the effects Twitch Twitch can trigger with it.
  • If you suspect Twitch Twitch has left the lane, let your teammates know that Twitch Twitch is "MIA."


Ability Usage
  • Be careful when using Ambush.png Ambush near enemy turrets, as they can see invisible units.
  • It is always good to use Ambush.png 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.png 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.
  • Twitch Twitch's Ambush.png Ambush has a timer. Watching the timer is very important when using stealth. Twitch Twitch is very good at scouting ahead of his allies while stealthed.
  • When the first hit with Spray and Pray.png 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. Twitch Twitch's low health makes him especially vulnerable to bursts of damage.
  • Be careful of enemy champions who have Control Ward item.png Control Wards or a Sweeping Lens item.png Sweeping Lens as well as champions who have abilities that can detect stealth, such as Morgana Morgana's Soul Shackles.png Soul Shackles. This makes Twitch Twitch unable to scout safely or move close enough for a kill.
  • Spray and Pray.png 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 Twitch Twitch player and a skilled jungler, you can move Twitch 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.
    • Twitch 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.png 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(Amumu Amumu, Olaf Olaf, etc.)
  • If you take Ambush.png Ambush first, use it sparingly so that you don't run out of mana early game.
    • Taking Ambush.png Ambush early game allows Twitch Twitch to check bushes without taking too much damage and allows him to counter jungle more efficiently.
  • If you take Contaminate.png Contaminate first, use the damage to farm effectively. Do not use it to harass unless you have six stacks of Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom, otherwise you will run out of mana trying to harass and farm at the same time.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
  • Work with your team to focus on Twitch Twitch when he comes out of the stealth as he is extremely squishy.
  • The easy way to counter Twitch Twitch is to purchase a Sweeping Lens item.png Sweeping Lens to detect him when he is stealthed or placing a Control Ward item.png Control Ward in a path where you think Twitch Twitch usually stays.
  • Keep your allies spread if Twitch Twitch is using his Spray and Pray.png Spray and Pray.
    • Keep in mind that it also procs on hit-effect such as life steal and critical strikes, allowing Twitch Twitch to wipe out your team single-handedly.
  • Very few ADC's can match Twitch 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 Twitch Twitch is no longer seen in lane, let your allies know by calling mia/ss, lowering his high ganking potential with Ambush.png Ambush.
  • Due to his low health, hard CC such as stuns and snares are devastating to him.
  • Twitch Twitch's late game power is extremely high, as he can burst down entire teams - don't let him get to that point!
  • Twitch Twitch can easily backdoor as Spray and Pray.png Spray and Pray lets him outrange turrets, this however leaves him somewhat weaker, as he loses the powerful damage boost from Spray and Pray.png Spray and Pray.
