Wraith is one of the most popular characters to play as in Apex Legends, and players have discovered an insane exploit that allows her to use her ‘Into The Void’ tactical ability to constantly phases in and out of the world, making it almost impossible to kill her.
Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale is different from other games in the genre, with players able to choose characters with their own special abilities as they try to get a leg-up on their opponents while attempting to win matches and become Apex Champions.
These abilities are designed specifically for each Legend in the game, leading players to prefer some characters over others as they suit their playstyle better. One of the most popular Legends is “Interdimensional Skirmisher” Wraith, who can travel between dimensions to avoid damage or flank opponents, and some players have found a way to make her tactical ability “Into The Void” last indefinitely, making it extremely difficult to hit her with bullets.
In a post uploaded to the Apex Legends subreddit on February 2, GI_JOE_GAMING revealed that they had been playing a match on Worlds End when they encountered a Wraith who was abusing an exploit to remain “in the void” permanently, jumping in and out to fire shots at her enemies before activating it once again to protect herself when fire was returned.
The Wraith could be seen sprinting across Worlds End towards the player, disappearing and reappearing at will as the team struggled to connect with the magical character. Eventually, the team managed to corner the glitching opponent and finally eliminate her for the victory, but the Reddit user admitted they had “such a hard time” taking her down, even though they had a two-man advantage in the final battle.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that players have found ways to exploit Wraith’s tactical ability, with a similar glitch appearing back in July 2019, leading Respawn to eventually threaten bans for those who continuously abused it in matches.
Unsurprisingly, Apex Legends players are not happy that this glitch exists once again, with players calling on the developers to reintroduce their policy of banning players who use the exploit.
Respawn have yet to address the return of the Wraith phasing issue, but with the game’s Season 4 set to kick off on Tuesday, February 4, players will be hoping that the developers will issue a response to it, as a fix before the release of the update seems unlikely.
