Neeko, the League of Legends champion, has been transformed into a tower by Riot Games MOBA. The game-breaking bug produced some strange-looking one-hit kills while LoL patch 12.22 introduced sweeping changes for Preseason 2023.
Neeko’s Inherent Glamour ability normally allows her to take the form of any allied champions, allowing her to use a range of basic attacks until she takes damage, at which point she transforms back to her base appearance. However, a new League of Legends bug allows Neeko to transform into an ally champion and inflict huge damage that can kill enemies in one hit.

HappyChimeNoises shared the game-breaking bug with League of Legends streamer. LoL players have received quick responses to their reports of encountering tower-Neeko during live, ranked games. “The buff I’ve been waiting for!” one player writes, with another encouraging fellow LoL fans to “try this before it gets patched”. “This is the buff Neeko needs,” a third respondent writes, with another saying they “hope Riot doesn’t fix this until next week. I want to get free LP so bad.”
The next League of Legends patch, 12.23, is scheduled for December 7, so it’s highly likely the Neeko tower bug will be removed then if not before. League of Legends preseason often sees bugs and exploits as Riot Games makes changes to the game’s mechanics. Riot Games has yet to respond to the Neeko Tower bug. PCGamesN will continue updating this story if the developer provides a quick fix.
If you’re getting into LoL preseason, check out our League of Legends tier list to get a leg up on the opposition. This may also be a good time – or perhaps not – to find out how much you’ve spent on League of Legends, because if Neeko is turning into a one-shot tower these days, you might want to have to cash put aside to pick up some new gear. Alternatively, try out some of the other best games like LoL, if you’d sooner avoid all the glitchy troubles.
