Apex Legends players are discovering “dirty” plays for quick kills

Apex Legends players are starting to refine sneaky strats to pick up quick eliminations in the battle royale – and some people might want to take note of them, just in case.

Respawn Entertainment whisked away players to World’s Edge at the start of Season 3 on October 1, and since then people have been finding the best ways of staying alive in the unforgiving tundra of the new map.

But all’s fair in love and war, especially since people are getting accustomed to the various mechanics in Apex. Meaning people getting smart on how to use them to their advantage in certain situations.

Inventive bamboozles in Apex Legends

For example, Reddit user ‘Euphoriaaa-’ showed a perfect bait to lure in unsuspecting players who make the mistake of tunneling onto their prize when discovering an Epic Body Shield.

After discovering a purple armor just laying around, they decided to equip it and then immediately blow it up using an Arc Star. Well since they swapped back to their original armor, the damaged Epic still lay on the floor – seemingly unscathed.

Not even going to deny this is a dog play, but a fun one at that from r/apexlegends

Then it was purely a waiting game. When an enemy Pathfinder came in to take the purple shield on the ground, Euphoriaaa sprung into action to claim their kill.

The player admittedly said it was a “dog play” but a battle royale is supposed to weed out players in any way it can as long as players stick to the game’s rules.

Respawn EntertainmentBamboozles extend to floor loot too. Always check the firing mode when picking up guns like the Flatline.

Watching the unfortunate play unfold inspired others to come forward with “dirty” plays they came up with or had happened to them, revealing a trove of helpful hints.

“This is why I have trust issues,” user ‘WantonSonor’ said. “I picked up a Flatline from a Supply Bin yesterday and immediately got into an encounter… someone had changed it into Single Fire mode, there were only 4 rounds in the mag.”

Then, of course, there’s the “Bunker 2.0” that one Caustic player was overly thrilled to discover on World’s Edge which can really get players paranoid.

It seems like Apex Legends players are finding their own ways of having fun with cheeky plays throughout World’s Edge, and there’s bound to be more discovered in Season 3.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
