Talon Matchups Overview

Talon General information

Talon tips and tricks

Talon is one of the strongest early game champions. Look for an early first blood to get an early lead.

Flank in team fights to make it easier for you to take down squishy champions with your Ultimate Shadow AssaultR.

As Talon is an assassin, look for picks on enemies who are walking around the map alone. Ambush enemies who go to ward alone as they’re easy to kill.
