Bilgewater Trait, Units & Abilities in TFT

Riot Games introduced the Bilgewater Trait and units along with the new region portal called Rat Town. It wrote, “Set sail with Bilgewater, the new vertical trait starring Runeterra’s most charismatic pirates…and Gangplank. We just hope they can all get along. While you’re here, be sure to stop by Rat Town—it’s much nicer than it sounds!

According to Riot Games, this is what the new vertical Bilgewater trait does:

Locals mark their foes for periodic barrages from their waterborne artillery!

Additionally, the trait will have a total of nine breakpoints (3/5/7/9). But there are seven Bilgewater units.

The units are as follows:




Twisted Fate


Miss Fortune


As for the new Rat Town portal, this will be the effect it will generate when players opt for this region:

The abilities of the Bilgewater units are as follows:
