Kayn Matchups Overview

Kayn General information

Kayn tips and tricks

Don’t be afraid to use alternative ganking routes with your Shadow StepE to dodge commonly warded bushes.

Try and get your transformation as quickly as possible by ganking and skirmishing with the enemy as often as you can.

You’ll want to transform into Blue Kayn if the enemy has lots of squishy champions. If they have lots of tanky champs, opt for Red Kayn.
