Twitch, the Plague Rat is a ranged marksman champion who scurries among the shadows, poisoning and wearing his opponents down before finishing them off. His abilities focus around spreading and taking advantage of this poison to damage enemies en masse. Once he's softened up the opposition, Twitch can activate his ultimate to wreck havoc from afar or pick off enemies who have turned tail. Twitch is also one of the few marksmen with access to stealth, allowing him to slink away from unfavorable fights or lay in wait to overwhelm an unsuspecting foe.


Deadly Venom
Deadly Venom

Twitch's basic attacks each apply a stack of Poison icon Deadly Venom, dealing 12 / 18 / 24 / 30 / 36 true damage over 6 seconds and stacking up to 6 times for a maximum of 72 / 108 / 144 / 180 / 216 true damage over the duration.

Ability Details
Deadly Venom is an on-hit effect.

Additional Information:

  • Deadly Venom's damage over time is considered a Poison icon poison, but only for the purposes of CassiopeiaSquare.png Cassiopeia's Twin Fang.png Twin Fang and will trigger its cooldown reduction effect.
  • Because Deadly Venom deals True Damage, it cannot be mitigated by MorganaSquare.png Morgana's Black Shield.png Black Shield.
  • Deadly Venom can be removed with Quicksilver.

COST: 60 mana

Active: Twitch enters stealth for a few seconds after 1.5 seconds of not taking damage or 6 seconds, gaining 20% bonus movement speed while invisible.

Upon leaving stealth, Twitch gains bonus attack speed for 5 seconds.

  • Attack Speed: 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70%

Attacking or using an ability breaks stealth immediately.

Ability Details
Ambush is a self-buff ability

Additional Information:

  • Ambush has no cast time and does not interrupt Twitch's previous orders.
  • Taking damage while stealthed will not break stealth, even if revealed by true sight.
  • Using Recall.png Recall or Teleport.png Teleport when Ambush is activated will cause Twitch to exit stealth.
    • Using Recall.png Recall or Teleport.png Teleport during Ambush's fade timer will cause Twitch to enter stealth, but continue channeling the spell.
  • Activating consumable items will not break stealth (such as placing a Sight Ward item.png Stealth Ward or using a Health Potion item.png Health Potion). However, activating most items, such as Blade of the Ruined King item.png Blade of the Ruined King will break stealth.
    • Activating Zhonya's Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass after activating Ambush but before entering stealth will not break stealth.

Ability Details
Contaminate is a point blank auto-targeted ability.

Additional Information:

  • Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom stacks are NOT removed when this ability is used.
  • Upon infecting an enemy champion with Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom, Twitch receives a range indicator showing Contaminate's radius.
    • The actual range is very slightly bigger than the shown radius.
    • Damage from Contaminate is not applied if Deadly Venom.png Deadly Venom wears off or the targeted unit moves out of range prior to the damage being applied.

COOLDOWN: 120 / 110 / 100

Additionally, Twitch's basic attacks travel across their full range and skewer every enemy they pass through for the duration, dealing 20% less damage per enemy hit down to a minimum of 40% damage. These attacks apply on-hit effects to all affected enemies and can critically strike against each individual target.

Ability Details
Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat is a self-buff ability that also causes Twitch's basic attacks to be replaced by pass-through linear skill shots.

Additional Information:

  • Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat has no cast time and does not interrupt Twitch's previous orders.
    • Twitch's attacks during Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat can outrange turrets (850 range opposed to the turrets' 800) meaning he can damage them during Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat without taking damage from them.
  • Twitch's attacks will pass through structures and terrain, but will not damage structures unless they were directly targeted for the attack.
  • For purposes of Runaan's Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane, attacking with Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat counts as a single auto-attack against a single targeted enemy, and as such will only launch one pair of ordinary single-target bolts to nearby enemies. However, the range bonus applies for all three bolts.
  • Twitch will gain a stack of Spell Weaving mastery s4.png Spell Weaving for each enemy hit. He will also gain a stack of Frenzy mastery s4.png Frenzy for each enemy hit with a critical strike.
