Skada the Man-o-War is a ranged marksman that has access to a unique item that can be upgraded adaptively to mid-game situations, targeting threats on the enemy team specifically. With access to a high mobility ability and a melee form, he can also assassinate key targets from up close.

Skada thrives in extended combat through his ultimate, Leave No Witnesses, which he can use in traction with his slippery to dance around in a fight, peel health of targets and either deal heavy damage or execute the enemy team in a swift hit of the trigger.

Deadly Arsenal gives Skada an option to counter specific enemies, who are either snowballing or scaling up to pose a late game threat. Fulfilling his thematics, Skada is the specialist to take out these threats diligently. Either be it with Gargoyle Stone Bullets to pierce through tanks, Looking Glass Scope to siege the enemy base, Vastayan Skin Stock to out-duel skillshot carries, Void Stone Laser to outlast hyper carries or Bload-Soaken Bayonet to assassinate anyone that might become a threat later on.


The denizens of Piltover literally look down upon the denizens of the city of Zaun. While they would find it hard to admit, both cities need eachother more than they might admit. However, a culture of symbiotes is also welcoming to parasites. The rivalry instigates both sides trying to outdo one another and to accomplish that, things end up being stolen from above or below. And sometimes, they need to be brought back before it is too late.

The people from Piltover won't descent into Zaun themselves. They got people for that. Skada is one such guy. On paper, he doesn't exist. An expendable force, a wetworks experts, a ghost that haunts Zaun. His name echoes in both cities, one with the sound of admiration, the other of fear. Seeing him in person means you were not the target, or you wouldn't have lived to see the moment. Sometimes, you don't even know he has been targeting you; The item he was looking for has been swooped away from under your names.

The latest task Skada has been given proved to be a challenge, even for the most adepted veteran. A scientist at a Piltoverian laboratory had become a victim to a Zaunite esponiage mission. During the final stages of highly classified project, the scientist's assistant doublecrossed him by setting the laboratory ablaze, destroying all written documentation of the project and letting the scientist perish in the fire. Everything the project had accomplished was only known by the assistant, who had fled into Zaun.

This wasn't a normal assassination. No, Skada had to go one step further for the perfect job: Recover the contents of the project itself. It solely existed inside the mind of the assistant, thus Skada had to extract it first before filling it again with a bullet. A regular sharp blade against the throat wouldn't suffice, it required more elegance. It also required Skada to do something he hadn't done before, face his target -- or rather victim.
