So I'm a bit confused by things going around about how Runaan's Hurricane interacts with caitlyn's passive. I understand that the other attacks from runaan's add stacks but if you're in the brush are the shots from the smaller bolts also doubled thus making a total of 6 stacks if you're in the bush and attacking three targets? So far I have only found assumptions on the internet. Anyone have a good link or tested this out themselves?
Here are some basic things to know about Caitlyn's passive. Each time you basic attack, Caitlyn stacks a passive. Once this passive reaches 5 stacks, your next basic attack will give you the Headshot buff, which gives your next basic attack bonus damage.
Therefore, Caitlyn's passive has 6 states: uncharged, 1-4 stacks, and charged.
Here are some trials I ran without Runaan's Hurricane:
From bush: Uncharged -> 2 stacks Not from bush: Uncharged -> 1 stack From bush: 4 stacks -> Uncharged (used up passive) Not from bush: 4 stacks -> Charged
And here are the trials with Runaan's Hurricane:
From bush: 2 stacks -> Charged (hit 3) Not from bush: 2 stacks -> Charged (hit 3) From bush: Charged -> 4 (hit 3, used passive) Not from bush: Charged -> 2 (hit 3, used passive)
With this data, we can derive two salient points.
- Runaan's Hurricane will give 2 stacks for Caitlyn's passive if she is in the bush.
- Caitlyn's passive will not increase damage for nor be consumed by Runaan's Hurricane's procs.
Note: If Runaan's Hurricane hits before Caitlyn's basic attack and stacks up her passive for her, then Caitlyn's basic attack will consume the Headshot buff and deal bonus damage.
