For the third time in a row, NRG Esports pro players Dizzy and KingRichard, along with Overwatch pro Mendokusaii, have won the March 29 running of the Code Red tournament for Apex Legends.

As usual, the March 29 Code Red Apex Legends tournament featured some of the biggest names of the battle royale community, and was hosted by none other than popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect, along with online gaming platform BoomTV.

If you are not familiar with how format used in this tournament, make sure to read up on it in our Code Red Apex Legends tournament hub before continuing with this recap.

Recap of March 29 Code Red Apex Legends Grand Final

Dizzy, KingRichard, and Mendokusaii, whose team name was Twitch Prime Time, beat out vsnz, chocoTaco, and HusKerrs (Reid’s Money Clan) in the Grand Final to secure the $13,000 first place prize.

Having already beaten Reid’s Money Clan to win the Winner’s Bracket final, Twitch Prime Time needed to only claim one match in the Grand Final to win the tournament, while their opponents needed to take two back-to-back.

Knowing this, Reid’s Money Clan surprised everyone as they took the first match 36-19, resetting the bracket and forcing a winners-take-all second match for the first time in tournament history.

Overwatch pro player Mendokusaii played a crucial role in securing a three-peat for Twitch Prime Time in the Code Red Apex Legends tournament.

With everything on the line, the second game started off well for Twitch Prime Time, as they put together 25 eliminations and a match victory to take a 33-18 lead after the first of three maps.

The second map turned out to be a very tight affair, as both teams put up nearly identical scores to go into the third and final map with Dizzy and co. leading 64-50.

Seemingly dead in the water, Reid’s Money Clan put up a tremendous effort to close the game in the final map, but Twitch Prime Time clutched up with a victory in their match to secure the championship Grand Final 95-86.

Apex Legends player turns pretending to be an MRVN into a 1000 IQ play

One Apex Legends player’s role-playing adventure as one of MRVN NPC’s found on the map actually worked out quite well for them and could be a sneaky strategy to watch out for going forward.

Look, sometimes MVRN’s aren’t even worth your time to loot. They don’t really drop a lot unless you can attach one of their arms. However, that makes them prime bait material — because who knew Pathfinder could become Mirage?

Reddit user ‘warartic’ has showed off the ingenious decoy mechanic using the MVRNs scattered around the map to pull a fast one on an opponent, and all it took was a clever name and choosing Pathfinder as their legend.

Pathfinder is technically an MVRN, but with a lot more personality.

In the clip, the player, named “I’m MVRN” stands completely still with Pathfinder as enemies battle it out around them, and somehow none of the other players seem to suspect a thing.

Inside the final circle, most players amazingly don’t even give the imposter a second look. There is one Bloodhound who’s so close to getting it, and starts shooting them, but doesn’t do enough to finish them off. Apparently, they were satisfied that the lack of any reaction made what they were shooting an NPC.

The battle unfolds around the disguised player for over a minute until they finally decide to spring their trap at the perfect moment. With just one other squad left, they break character and go to eliminate the enemy Bangalore getting up her teammate, sealing the victory in one of the most hilarious and ridiculous ways we’ve seen lately.

Thankfully, it’s easy to tell whether or not it’s an actual MVRN or just a sneaky player trying to pull a fast one. First off, upon closer inspection Path is much more streamlined and rounded compared to the NPC versions, who will also have a green, glowing light on their face.

Non-player MVRN’s will also just be called “MVRN” on their nametag, nothing else, and react to you when you find them, some are also lootable as well. If you just see a suspicious-looking robot standing completely still in the corner of a room, go ahead and light it up, just to be safe.

You certainly don’t want to be the one caught by this strategy, which is apparently effective enough to score wins all on its own. So, take an extra second and make sure any MVRN actually isn’t a player in disguise, and you should be safe from an embarrassing elimination like this.
