However, everything about their team⁠—other than the fact that they won’t be traditional, which generally means they’re not marksmen⁠—remains to be seen.

On April 18, Reav3 shared some new lore on the bot lane seemingly focused on melee. A fight at “Oyster Bill’s Oyster Shack” revealed some features players can expect when the unique shooter lands.

Known for his cheerful laughthe shooter is a “stranger from the land of a thousand colors” across the seas of Runeterra. They presumably fight with a water-based skill kit since they left “strange bright puddles everywhere” while creating a mist effect during battle.
