Riot disables League of Legends hero who can turn into a one-shot death tower (but isn’t supposed to)

  • November 23, 2022

Riot Games has temporarily disabled League of Legends (opens in new tab) character Neeko after she unexpectedly developed the ability to transform into a massive tower that can kill enemy players in a single shot.

Neeko is actually a shapeshifter: Her character bio (opens in new tab) says she “can blend into any crowd by borrowing the appearances of others, even absorbing something of their emotional state to tell friend from foe in an instant.” Her passive ability enables her to take the form of an allied champion: While disguised she can employ basic attacks, but will revert to her natural form if she takes any damage.
