In LoL's classification, Caitlyn is a "Marksman". She can attack from a distance but on the other hand she is very fragile. She is an ad character, which means that she inflicts physical damage

She is mainly found on the botlane. Like most Marksman, she primarily uses her auto-attacks to inflict damage. Caitlyn has a sniper which gives her a longer range.

To play Caitlyn at her full potential we recommend that you take runes that provide extra damage while improving her movement speed, especially with the all-important Fleet Footwork rune.

Regarding Caitlyn's build, we recommend in order of priority Berserker's leggings, Galeforce, Rapid Firecannon, Infinity Edge, and a Bloodthirster.

With Caitlyn your role will be to inflict a lot of damage. With her passive you will be able to inflict critical damage on a regular basis. This is also the case when you immobilize an enemy with your traps. Sona Q crosses the enemies, which will allow you to inflict damages from afar. Also to gain mobility, Son E throws a net that activates her passive and throws Caitlyn backwards. Finally her ultimate ability locks the enemy and inflicts heavy damage.

Lore

Ally Tips

Make use of her Yordle Snap Traps by placing them pre-emptively to ensure that you'll have one off of cooldown during combat.

Avoid using Ace in the Hole in large team melees as it might be blocked by the wrong target.

Fire 90 Caliber Net away from the opponent to close the gap or hop over walls.

Enemy Tips

Keep behind allied minions if Caitlyn Runes is harassing you with Piltover Peacemaker (it deals less damage with each subsequent target).

You can intercept Ace in the Hole's missile from hitting an ally if you stand in its path.

Renowned as its finest peacekeeper, Caitlyn Runes is also Piltover's best shot at ridding the city of its elusive criminal elements. She is often paired with Vi, acting as a cool counterpoint to her partner's more impetuous nature. Even though she carries a one-of-a-kind hextech rifle, Caitlyn Runes's most powerful weapon is her superior intellect, allowing her to lay elaborate traps for any lawbreakers foolish enough to operate in the City of Progress.
