Hello summoners, and welcome to SenpAI’s Game-Changing Ults on ADCs. Contrary to popular belief, auto-attacks are not the only way for marksmen to influence teamfight outcomes.
We have compiled a list of marksmen with ults strong enough to shift important fights in your favor. In case you are wondering why Aphelios isn’t on the list (Spoiler?), his ult is heavily reliant on his gun rotations, making it more situational.
That said, let’s check out game-changing ultimates on ADCs in League of Legends!
Miss Fortune – Bullet Time
Miss Fortune is one of the most popular ADCs in the game. She has an easy-to-learn kit and impressive damage. Furthermore, her ult can potentially wipe out entire enemy lineups when positioned correctly.
Bullet Time allows Miss Fortune to rapidly fire several waves of bullets in a cone in front of her. Each wave can critically strike, increasing the ability’s potential for devastating damage output. The ult pairs well with ally abilities that can apply a slow, root, or stun to lock enemies in place so she can land the full bullet waves.
An excellent idea is to lead with her E – Make it Rain, which slows opponents down considerably, then follow up with the ult.
Nilah – Apotheosis
Imagine Diana’s ult but a longer delay and an incorporated heal effect; that’s Nilah’s Apotheosis. The ability allows Nilah to twirl her whip, dealing damage to enemies around her before pulling them together towards her.
Apotheosis has a delay between the damage application and pull effect that allows for quick re-positioning for optimal results. It also heals Nilah and her allies after cast, making it wonderful for sustain in fights and skirmishes.
The ult scales well into the late game, allowing it to impact vital, game-deciding fights more.
Samira – Inferno Trigger
This ability is the center of Samira’s identity, in addition to her unique melee and ranged attacks. Inferno Trigger allows the champion to rapidly unleash a torrent of bullets that hits every enemy unit around her at the same time.
While this ability can land easy multi-kills, especially in the late game, it has some conditions for activation. First, you have to attack enemies enough times to hit the ‘S’ combo level before you can activate it.
Also, remember that enemy crowd control effects like Lulu’s Polymorph, knock-ups, knock-backs, stuns, silences, taunts, and sleep can cancel the ult. Therefore waiting till these abilities are on cooldown before going in is a good idea.
On the other hand, if you have Morgana’s Black Shield on your side, by all means, blast away!
Varus – Chain of Corruption
With the ability to apply a root that bounces from an affected enemy to others close by, Chain of Corruption is an excellent engage tool in the late game. Since the ability also applies blight that amplifies damage from Varus’ abilities, it also sets opponents up for a quick burst from the champion.
The ability’s initial cast travels in a straight line and latches on to any enemy caught within range. It can function as a peel for the champion in desperate times or simply start a fight on his terms.
Chain of Corruption is also popular in coordinated play because of its reliability for both engage and follow-ups.
Xayah – Featherstorm
To understand this ability’s potential, you have to take a look at Xayah’s passive and E – Bladecaller. The passive causes Xayah’s auto-attacks to strike multiple enemies in a line for some seconds after casting any ability, leaving feathers on the ground.
Bladecaller, on the other hand, allows the champion to recall every existing feather, damaging and rooting any enemy they pass through on the way back to her.
With Featherstorm, Xayah unleashes several feathers at once in a cone, activating her passive and significantly increasing the number of recallable feathers. In teamfights, recalling these feathers will always be disastrous to enemies, dealing huge damage and rooting them for allies to mop up.
That sums up our list of ADCs with the best game-changing ults in League of Legends. Feel free to comment on your favorites down below.
