Apex Legends players have a new reason to fear the game’s Toxic Trapper after a new clip shows how a new glitch is producing an unlimited amount of Nox Gas Traps for players to abuse.

The battle royale genre was taken by storm when Apex Legends dropped on February 4, but the game has since been plagued with mounting problems with hitboxes, strange bugs, and problematic servers.

It’s been a slow path to recovery for Apex Legends after its meteoric rise upon release. As fans are eagerly awaiting Season 2 and all the enhances it’ll bring, there are some problematic bugs that are still popping up from time to time.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Toxic Trapper is really living up to his name with this insane Apex Legends bug.

In a Reddit post, user ‘antipostalobsta’ stumbled onto the bug which let them create toxic chaos, forcing a team to get stuck between a rock and a Nox place.

The clips shows the Apex player going mad with the newfound power they’d discovered, as they can be seen throwing trap after trap that slowly made the entire scene hazy with a deep green filter.

It seems like the bug opened up a new tactic for antipostalobsta to use, as it looks like they were starting to build a wall of Gas Traps to block the path of the incoming squad.

As one can see in the lower left side of the video, the Tactical Ability icon for the Now Gas Traps seems to reset with every use. Normally Caustic can give three tanks out, but it looks like the game is recognizing there are at least two already in play, but still awards an extra trap.

It looks like some players have cracked the code on how to replicate the Caustic bug, which could make it easier for the Respawn Entertainment team to implement a fix for in the future.

“Get 3 traps, throw them all, Get your ult and 3 more traps,” user ‘khgmutt’ said. “Spam heals (even if you’re not hurt). Spam traps. It will hesitate after the third trap sets up… Keep spamming.”

Respawn EntertainmentThe Caustic bug can be used to create huge plums of inescapable Nox Gas.

The user went on to say that there can only be six “untriggered” traps at a time, but as soon as they bloom the game will let the player place more.

This seems like one of those bugs that Respawn Entertainment will want to fix as soon as possible, seeing how players will easily find ways to abuse the glitch.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
