Lately, it seems as if we are in the season for LoL leaks. Last month, there were whispers that a new champ would be in town. First, the LoL community discovered an egg on the PBE, which mentions a mysterious new character called “Samira.”
These rumors and leaks, combined with the June update teasing that there would be a new AD carry in Season 10 seem to point out what we already guessed – there’s going to be a 151st LoL champion joining it sooner than we all expected …but that’s not a bad thing.
According to insider leaks, Samira could be released as earth as next month! Here’s everything we currently know about LoL Champion Samira!
If you haven’t heard about Samira, you may be wondering who the heck she is. Well, Samira will be the 151st champion. How do we know that? Long story short, we have our ways of knowing things. Samira is a Noxian markswoman that many of you are going to be pleased with.
Thanks to Streamie, a Brazilian streamer that leaked Yone’s possible arrival, we now have a good idea of what this new LoL champion will look like. Streamie is also the streamer that leaked the champion that would come after Samira – the one that has been pretty active on social media – “Seraphine.” Seraphine was uncovered on August 20, and to date, her Twitter and Instagram accounts are still going strong.
Are you familiar with the Cowgirl skin that Miss Fortune has? Well, we believe that’s what Samira is going to look like. On her legs, she will have holsters. She can be described as a female version of Rambo, except this Rambo is beautiful …and beautifully powerful.
This is an accurate description that lines up with Riot’s teaser for champion 151. During the June correctly, we recall the devs at Riot stating that the next ADC hero would be “dressed to kill.” During this time, they also suggested that their next marksman would be capable of “firing a whirlwind of blades and bullets.”
Now the abilities are something that every LoL player wants to know about, and when it comes to Samira’s abilities, we believe this is something you’re going to be quite happy with. Her abilities are similar to four other champions that are already in League of Legends – champions you may be familiar with. Her “jaw-dropping” kit takes inspiration from Urgot’s W, Irelia’s W, and Nunu and Willump’s ult. This was a statement that was made by Streamie.
These leaks have suggested that Samira will have an ultimate that allows her to “spin and shoot bullets from her machine gun.” That’s right; we just said machine gun! Along with this, she will also be able to throw multiple daggers …at least, that’s what we heard.
According to the leaks, Samira’s ultimate ability will be capped by a “style meter.” This style meter will be impacted by the number of champions she hits at any one time.
Additional leaks have suggested that the new 151st champion will work in a way that is similar to Aphelios. This new champion isn’t going to require multiple gun changes. However, Samira is going to alternate between her dagger and her pistol, and for her ultimate ability, her weapon of choice will be the machine gun.
Samira’s Release Date
Now, we understand that Samira’s release date is on the top of everyone’s mind but hang in there because before you realize it, this new 151st champion will make her debut, and it’ll feel like Christmas. According to the leaks, Samira could walk out in a match real soon.
Streamie has suggested that Samira was up for a “two-week” release date. What does this mean? This means that Samira could be on the League Patch 10.18. This would take place before the Worlds update, so she probably can’t be used during competitive play (she would be disabled).
Her release could be pushed to patch 10.19. Based on the past, it’s not rare for Riot to delay champion releases, and that is okay. When Riot delays champions, this means they are working through bugs that they discovered, so it always pays off to be patient, because no one wants to play on a champion that is packed full of bugs. Right?
Why Are These Leaks Credible?
Of course, many of our readers may be wondering why we believe these leaks are credible. Do you remember PsyOps Sona? It was Streamie that leaked the PsyOps skin. Then, this was proved correct when Riot releases the teasers. There were other leaks, such as the new champion that seems to be addicted to Twitter – Seraphine.
Just today, we heard that there are LoL players that are reporting that they have completed a secret mission in the game. This mission gives an Emote Teaser of Samira! However, so far, the requirements to complete this Secret Mission are a mystery. If you guys figure out the secret mission’s requirements before we do, please drop it in the comments below to help our readers out.

Everything we just discussed about the 151st champion, Samira, including leaks and other forms of information have not been proven to be true – those are tentative in nature. These may or may not be accurate until Riot Games has made it official.
Every time a new champion is set to be released, League of Legends players all around the world are filled with excitement. So far, this is everything we know about Samira.
