Apex Legends loremaster ‘FrozenFroh’ put together a handy guide to clear up possible confusion on the Wraith situation that was shown in the September 2 Stories of the Outlands video.

Respawn Entertainment rolled out their second Town Takeover with their event on September 5, this time inspired by the twisted and traumatic backstory of the Interdimensional Skirmisher, Wraith.

So far the event has proven to be extremely popular among new and longtime players, but the introduction of the alternate timeline heroine has been throwing some fans through a loop as to which Wraith is from what dimension.

But the Reddit user FrozenFroh created an easy-to-follow guide that shows the timeline of the two stars from the lore entry, which a dev was all but happy to confirm by saying: “you nailed it – skins and all :)”

As the graph shows, there were two main versions of Wraith that the video follows: the Apex Games Timeline (Ghostwraith), as well as the timeline where the IMC is still up and running performing bizarre experiments (our Wraith).

But it’s the Ghostwraith who is seen attempting to take down the IMC facility that originates from the timeline where players have been dropping into the Apex Games.

In her timeline, she found herself in the same predicament as IMC-timeline Wraith, but the Apex Games-version of her (the Ghostwraith) decided to fight back against her oppressors and bring them down.

For those that didn’t understand what happened with Wraith, here is a nice timeline of events from r/apexlegends

While escaping the alternate reality’s facility, Ghostwraith saves the IMC-Wraith. While Ghostwraith’s new plan was to save her alternate version and then escape, she saw head scientist Amer Singh and tunneled in on her revenge.

As the battle was getting out of hand, Ghostwraith gave her interdimensional device to IMC-facility Wraith so that she could escape.

It should be noted that as much of a bad-ass that IMC-Wraith is in the game, she actually seems like the more non-violent of the two, which might be why the IMC wasn’t taken down in her reality.

The Wraith that players have been using in Apex Legends is not the one from that timeline, but instead from an alternate reality; which is why she joined the Apex Games to learn more of who she really is.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
