Caitlyn: Pros & Cons

List of Pros & Cons on Caitlyn
Pros
- Caitlyn main advantage comes from her naturally large range, great for harassing and farming minions.
- Caitlyn is able to pressure and trade blows very effectively with her passive and long range.
- Caitlyn has a built-in escaping or disengages tool mechanism with her 90 Caliber Net.
- Caitlyn possesses strong poking potential in her kit with her passive, Piltover Peacemaker and well-placed traps.
- Caitlyn as an ADC can deliver a reasonable amount of damage that scales decently throughout the game.
- Caitlyn is able to take towers and inhibitors down from a safe distance and not targeted.
- Caitlyn can block entrances or Fog of War with her Yordle Snap Trap essentially zoning opponents.
- Caitlyn can be a lane bully if she abuses her headshot periodically and correct positioning to charge her passive.
- Last-hitting on minions with Caitlyn is fairly easy, Statikk Shiv or Runaan's Hurricane drastically improve wave clearing at mid game.
- Caitlyn has one of the easiest laning-phase in the whole entire game because she got smooth attack animation and decent attacking speed.


Cons
- Caitlyn is especially weak against champions with lock-down and gap closer abilities and assassins.
- Caitlyn cannot duel very well unlike champions like Ezreal, Vayne, and Quinn, making her quite supports reliant throughout the entire game.
- Caitlyn will have a hard time coming back from losing lane if played carelessly and lack of warding.
- Caitlyn is very dependent on items to carry the game as all her abilities and auto attacks scales by AD items.
- Caitlyn relies upon on well positioned to win team fights, she will not survive when facing full health opponents.
- Caitlyn abilities can lower her DPS in the late game as she can dish out more damage from auto attacks than casting her abilities.
- Caitlyn has no base stat steroids to push her into hyper-carry statuses like Vayne, Twitch, and Kog'Maw.
- Caitlyn's ultimate can be easily blocked when intercepted correctly by an enemy.
- Because two of Caitlyn's skills are utility skills, she has less burst output and relies more on auto attacks.
- Both Piltover Peacemaker and Ace in the Hole have a channel time, which leaves you vulnerable in that short period.
