Apex Legends player hilariously baits Twitch streamers Kraftyy and Viss

Twitch streamer Jesse ‘Kraftyy’ Kraft and Colton ‘Viss’ Visser were in the middle of an intense firefight in Apex Legends when they fell for one of Wraith’s simplest tricks to date.

Apex Legends released on February 4 with a concise array of unique characters to choose from. Every Legend brings their own set of abilities to get the upper-hand in combat, and Wraith’s kit can sometimes be used to hilariously deceive the enemy.

After a battle at the Airbase broke out, Kraftyy and Viss were in pursuit of a lonesome Wraith. The Wraith clearly felt the pressure and used their Dimensional Rift to escape the 2v1 they were in.

Going into an enemy Wraith’s portal is probably one of the most unsafest parts of Apex Legends.

While players generally know not to take an enemy’s Dimensional Rift, Kraftyy and Viss inadvertently got pinched between a wall and a barrage of gunfire.

With no other option, Kraftyy took the portal, only to find out the Wraith had already crafted a special surprise for the streamers.

“Dude, I just got baited so hard,” Kraftyy said to Viss. “Don’t take [the portal]!”

But it was too late as both Viss and Kraftyy had fallen prey to the trap. The Wraith had set up the Dimensional Rift outlet right over the edge of the map, and there was no saving anyone who entered it.

Kraftyy was in disbelief with how the game ended. He had already tallied 10 kills, and it was down to the last three squads before a miscalculated play instantly ended their match.

The streamers were left speechless by the hysterical bait, which might make them think twice about taking the next suspicious Rift they come across.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

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.
