Durable characters in MOBA games are almost a necessity whether in team fights or 1v1. These brawny characters can either be played as carries, tanks, or even supports. One such example is the Dota 2 hero, Sven. Likewise, in the world of LoL, Camille is a perfect example of a brawny tank that is capable of multiple roles. Today we will discuss the LoL champion Camille and how can you maximize your experience when playing as her. Here’s your LoL champion guide for Camille.
Who Is the LoL Champion Camille?
Camille is the principal intelligence operative of Clan Ferros, made to operate from beyond the law’s jurisdictions. Someone, after all, needs to keep Piltover’s progress and Zaun’s seedy underbelly running smoothly. She’s an incredibly adaptable woman, with great form and incredible precision. She views sloppy execution as a shame and will excise it when possible.
Her pursuit of perfection and superiority has led to several augmentations that turn her into more machine than woman. Some would even say that she’s no longer a human after all the augmentations and surgeries. However, “For Family, will I give” is the motto of Clan Ferros, and Camille is willing to give up everything, for the family.
Camille and Her Abilities in LoL
Camille’s next normal attack on an enemy champion will immediately create a shield. The shield is based on 20% of her max HP and lasts for 2 seconds. The shield will also block a specific damage type based on the type of damage a champion inflicts. So if you’re fighting an Ahri, the shield will block against Magic Damage. If you’re fighting a Nasus, your shield is going to block Physical Damage, and so on.
When used, Camille’s next normal attack has a windup that can’t be canceled. When struck, it adds extra physical damage to her attack and gives her extra movement speed for 1 second. After that attack, specifically after .25 seconds, she can recast Precision Control again with no mana cost within the next 3.5 seconds.
When she does this, her next attack will have the same effects as the first one. However, she can delay the recast for at least 1.5 seconds to deal double damage. In addition to this, a percentage of that damage is turned into True Damage, from 40% to 100% based on Champion level.
- Based on the skill’s Level, Precision Control can deal from 20 to 40% additional Physical Damage. On the first Attack. On the second attack, given you wait a few seconds before doing so, the usual damage is doubled.
- Precision Control deals an additional 20/25/30/35/40% Physical Damage increase on the first attack. The second attack, when timed correctly, deals an additional 40/50/60/70/80% additional damage.
Camille does a sweep with her bladed leg and deals physical damage to enemies within its cone strike range. For 1.1 seconds she charges the attack. In that interim, she can’t attack and is ghosted, meaning she passes through units.
The sweep has an inner and outer cone when Camille does this ability. Enemies that are hit on the outer cone get additional damage as well as a decaying 80% slow that lasts for 2 seconds. The additional damage is capped to 300 when monsters or creeps are involved. In addition to this, when Camille hits an enemy champion or three with the outer cone, she’s healed by 100% of the damage dealt. Do note that this is after any type of mitigation, so cool your jets there hoping for a max HP from low HP happenings. Though those things do happen sometimes.
- Camille can still use other abilities while she’s casting Tactical Sweep.
- Monsters of the non-epic variety (Wolves, Blue Sentinels, Red Bramblebacks, et cetera), take an additional 50% damage from Tactical Sweep.
- Tactical Sweep deals 70/100/130/160/190 damage in addition to 60% bonus AD. In addition to this, the outer cone deals 6/6.5/7/7.5/8% plus an additional 3.3% for every 100 bonus AD of the target’s maximum health.
Hookshot and Wall Dive
Camille fires her grapples in a target direction and dashes towards any terrain that it encounters. She will perch on said terrain for .75 seconds after that and gives her the ability to cast Wall Dive.
Wall Dive will immediately release Camille from the terrain she’s perching from and dashes towards a target direction. When she lands, she’ll immediately deal a lot of physical damage to the landing zone. In addition to this, the range of Wall Dive is increased when she dashes to enemy Champions.
One thing to take note of is the fact that if Camille hits an enemy Champion with Wall Dive, they’ll be stunned and knocked back. Camille will immediately stop Wall Dive to focus on the enemy Champion she collided with and the collision gives her bonus attack speed.
- Camille can be knocked down by crowd control effects that can immobilize when she’s dashing to the terrain.
- Abilities can be cast while Camille is in the middle of Hookshot and Wall Dive except for the Hextech Ultimatum. But only on Wall Dive.
- Wall Dive deals 60/95/130/165/200 damage plus an additional 75% bonus AD. It also gives Camille 40/45/5 /55/60% bonus Attack Speed when she hits an enemy Champion.
The Hextech Ultimatum
Camille leaps in the air towards a targeted enemy Champion and becomes un-targetable and immune to displacements while doing so. When she lands on said Champion, they’ll be revealed, as well as disrupted. In addition to this, any channeling that they’re doing is immediately disrupted. Any enemies have also been knocked away from the enemy champion Camille is targeting.
Once Camille lands, a hexagonal zone will be formed around her and the enemy champion. Inside this zone, Camille will deal bonus magic damage on her normal attacks and the enemy champion can’t leave.
- The Zone lasts for 2.5/3.25/4 seconds.
- Camille’s basic attacks while on this zone are increased by 5/10/15 Magic Damage in addition to +4/6/8% of the enemy Champion’s current HP.
- The Ultimate will end within 1 second after Camille leaves the zone or dies.

When to Pick Camille When Playing LoL
Camille is an incredibly fast Champion with a lot of solo kill potential. She’s very agile and difficult to pin down due to Hookshot and Wall Dive, and she’s a Champion that can snowball out of control fast. Picking Camille means you’re confident that you’ll take down your lane enemy and deal with other Champions on the other lanes.
In addition, a farmed Camille is a nightmare to deal with. All of her items improve her survivability while also giving her damage. Still, if you’re confident in your game sense and your ability to turn fights in your favor, pick Camille. She’ll carry for you if you’re willing to put in the effort.
