An Apex Legends player made an incredible Wraith play to outsmart their opponents and literally lead them to their deaths.

Outplaying foes in Apex Legends takes a combination of cunning, clever movement and an awareness of what a character is capable of with their ability kit. While finding the perfect blend is tricky, it pays dividends when properly pulled off.

Even though Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale has had its problems in the past, players have been grinding games and in the process discovering that Mirage isn’t the only trickster on the roster.

Respawn EntertainmentWraith can be a tricky legend to kill thanks to her Tactical Ability.

In an incredible Reddit clip, Twitch streamer ‘Joker47jk’ posted a clip of them getting “jumped” at the start of a match in the Apex Games. Playing as Wraith, the user relied on their fists to get them out of a tricky situation.

After recognizing that the situation probably wasn’t going to go in their favor, they hightailed it out of there to find another way to come out on top.

With only a grenade and a set of armor to their name, Joker47jk’s clip demonstrated the best way to make something out of a bleak situation with Wraith.

Instead of using Into the Void to make a great escape, the player preferred a more indirect form of combat.

As the enemy Bloodhound and Pathfinder looked too eager to chase down the isolated Wraith, Joker47jk hatched a plan so crazy that it had a great chance at working.

As the player was running away, they threw their only grenade on the ground ahead of them and proceeded to simply stand over it. Biding their time, the enemies approached their would-be-victim with vigor.

But as they were about to close in for the kill, Joker47jk activated their Tactical Ability to avoid the grenade’s blast. Something that Bloodhound and Pathfinder couldn’t.

Inside the protection of the Void, Joker47jk saw the kill feed light up with two kills credited to them.

It’s a simple trick but as shown it can be an incredibly effective play against people thirsty for a quick elimination at the start of a game.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
