Quick tips to play Caitlyn

You have a high auto-attack range. Whenever you can, make sure you abuse it and auto-attack the enemy whenever they try to secure a minion.

When pushing and sieging a tower, make sure you place your Traps

CaitlynYordleTrapW

behind the tower to zone the enemy. If they step in one, then you can go for a favourable trade.

Save your 90 Caliber Net

CaitlynEntrapmentE

to use as an escape tool in case the enemy tries to trade, or the enemy Jungler ganks your lane. Make sure you save enough mana to use this ability in case of an emergency too.
