For the marksmen and markswomen of League, or the ADCs, there are several types of champions to play. There are attack-speed-focused hyper carries like Jinx and Tristana, and then there are the face-melting high early damage carries like Draven and Jhin. Fortunately, the current ADC meta allows players to choose whichever one suits their tastes because they’re all mostly viable right now.
This list of top-tier champions can be affected depending on a number of things. Sometimes the meta shifts for no apparent reason other than players’ tastes, but usually there’s some kind of balance change behind it. It can be difficult to keep up on the flavor-of-the-month champs, so let us do that for you.
- One of the highest ADC ranges in the game Crowd control Dash which goes over walls
- Item dependant Gets outscalled by other meta ADCs
Caitlyn’s enormous range and headshots with a guaranteed critical strike always keep her in the meta as one of the best ADCs. It’s easy to last-hit minions with Cait while constantly poking enemies from a range that they can’t respond to. Her traps even provide zoning potential. She also makes positioning in teamfights simple since hitting enemies from the backline isn’t a problem. And in case one of them tries to escape, Ace in the Hole will get them. Caitlyn is simply one of the safest bot lane picks because she’s easy to play and rewarding.
- Infinite scaling Strong utility Global ultimate
- No dash Slow wave-clear
Senna is the only support/ADC in the game who can easily play both roles. While she was initially designed to be a support, she quickly became a staple pick for ADCs. Her infinite scaling, which grants her free AD, crit, and lifesteal, is too good to pass up. She may have some flaws, like the slow wave clear, which makes her inferior to most ADCs who can clear waves fast, but her kit and overall utility compensate for that.
- Huge crits Strong kit Fun to play
- Immobile Weak against tanks
Jhin is one the best ADCs to grace the Rift. He’s recently seen more action again because Caitlyn, a champion that he can easily lane against, has become more popular in both solo queue and professional play.
While Jhin does suffer from some weaknesses, including having no survivability or dashes in his kit, he’s fun and entertaining to play. His kit perfectly complements his persona and creates an interesting gameplay style overall.
