Riot Games has been teasing champion number 116 in League of Legends for about a week now, and with the hype reaching a peak, they've chosen today to unveil Jinx's move set and more. "Fire up your minigun and take aim with a massive death launcher as Jinx, the Loose Cannon," the release says, "Packing major attitude and equipped with a cornucopia of carnage, Jinx is a marksman primed to leave your foes marked for demolition."

Abilities

Passive: Get Excited!

Jinx gains a massive movement speed boost whenever a champion or tower that she's recently attacked is killed or destroyed. This boost decays over time.

Q: Switcheroo!

Jinx swaps weapons:

Fishbones, the rocket launcher: Jinx's basic attacks consume mana but gain increased range and deal increased damage to her target and nearby enemies.
Pow-Pow, the minigun: Jinx's basic attacks grant attack speed for a short duration, stacking up to three times. Stacks fall off one at a time once Jinx stops attacking.

W: Zap!

Jinx snaps off an electrical blast that deals damage to and slows the first enemy hit.

E: Flame Chompers!

Jinx throws out a line of snare grenades that detonate after a few seconds, lighting nearby enemies on fire. Enemy champions who walk over a grenade will cause it to detonate early, rooting them briefly.

R: Super Mega Death Rocket!

Jinx fires a global rocket that gains damage as it travels. The rocket explodes on the first enemy champion hit, dealing damage to the target and all nearby enemies based on a percentage of their missing health.
