Apex Legends: Caustic “Bunker 2.0” discovered in Season 3 map

Apex Legends Season 3 took the fanbase away from Kings Canyon and onto World’s Edge, but that didn’t stop Caustic players from finding exploitable spots on the new map.

In the early months of the game, Apex Legends was seeing a ton of Caustic players wreaking havoc on opponents who would fall victim to their Bunker traps, giving them essentially no way of avoiding death once caught.

Legends with harrowing memories of slowly dying at the hands of a deranged Caustic-main might have let out a sigh of relief with news of a Bunkerless map. But the persistence of one player will make unsuspecting teams ripe for the picking once again.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers should be wary now that there’s a new Caustic “bunker” death trap.

In an October 3 Reddit post, user ‘Beanbag1992’ highlighted a cramped spot in one of the buildings at the Fuel Depot that would serve as the new “Bunker 2.0,” as some fans are already calling it.

The clip shows a whole team led by Wattson cornering Beanbag’s teammate, Lifeline, who was intentionally left defenseless. After immediately eliminating the Combat Medic, the enemy team flooded the bathroom after seeing the small space “loaded… with as much loot as possible.”

Amid the enemy team’s blind greed, Beanbag was sitting on the ceiling’s rafters waiting for the opportune moment to strike.

“Here comes a Wattson,” a player can be heard saying in wait. “Octane. Octane, Wattson and Lifeline. Come on, come on, come on.”

As soon as all players were snug in there, Caustic can be seen throwing down a Nox Gas Trap to seal the trio in the room and then following it up with a Nox Gas Grenade Ultimate ability.

The team trapped inside can be seen frantically shooting and jumping, trying to find any way of escaping. But the shots slowly die down as they switched over to their Syringes to steal a few more moments of life.

Sure enough, seconds later the kill feed almost simultaneously registered all three of eliminated players to Beanbag’s name.

Caustic mains are sure to try replicate the clip’s success, so Apex Legends players should be wary of a suspicious-looking bathroom on Talos.

Teasers for Caustic’s Town Takeover in Apex Legends Season 8 are appearing on Kings Canyon, giving players a mixed bag of hype and dread for what the Toxic Trapper’s event will play like.

Respawn likes to give their Legends a turn in the spotlight with Town Takeovers that transform a point of interest (POI) in the battle royale to emulate a given character. We’ve seen ones for Octane, Mirage, and Bloodhound, just to name a few.

As the studio makes its way through their catalog of Legends, there’s always an atmosphere of renewed excitement for who will get the next Town Takeover going into a season. For Season 8, it’s expected to be part of the Chaos Theory event.

If previous leaks are to be believed, Season 8’s Town Takeover is centered around Caustic and plenty of teasers should be in the game soon.

Apex Legends Caustic Town Takeover teasers

Apex Legends’ loading screen on February 22 showed Caustic walking then stopping to overlook an area just next to Crash Site on Kings Canyon.

Dropping at this location, players could then play a short voice message from Caustic: “The erupted gas pocket and fuel have combined, to create a gargantuan supply of toxin. If there’s a way to refine it, I could mold it into something spectacular.”

Second Caustic teaser

The next teaser then dropped on February 25. Again, the loading screen was changed to a new location, and dropping here, you can find another message from Caustic.

“The best way to test this would be human subjects. Luckily, there’s an ample supply of Lab Rats right here.”

 

With all of the discussion going around the Legend, there’s people excited to see what a Caustic Town Takeover would play like. However, players that aren’t loving how strong he is at the moment are dreading to see how toxic the event will be.

According to the schedule, we can expect the next in-game teaser to appear on Feb. 27, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that one too.
