Tristana Matchups Overview

Tristana General information

Tristana tips and tricks

When using your Explosive ChargeE, make sure you auto-attack the enemy as much as possible to increase its damage output.

While your Rocket JumpW can be used aggressively, before jumping in, make sure the enemy CC abilities are down and the Jungler is not nearby. Jumping forward into the waiting arms of the enemy Jungler will leave you for dead.

In team fights, use your Ultimate Buster ShotR as a self peel tool. Use it to knock away the enemy frontline to keep yourself safe.
