Apex Legends: How to outplay opponents with Wattson trap

The latest character to be added to Apex Legends, Wattson, can allow players to set up some insane traps using her tactical ability.

Popular Legends such as Wraith and Pathfinder can often be difficult to counter in-game as their abilities allow for players to have improved mobility, making them hard to pin down for someone playing as Wattson.

However, one player has found the perfect way to make use of the Static Defender’s tactical ability, Perimeter security, in order to set up an unbeatable trap on unsuspecting opponents.

Respawn EntertainmentWattson was the latest character released in Season 2 of Apex Legends.

Wattson’s tactical ability traps are often placed at doorways and narrow locations such as Bunker, although Reddit user, Kossuranta, may have found a better way to set down the Legend’s electrified fences.

In this game, Kossuranta found themselves with a perfect opportunity to lay a trap for their opponents after reaching the safe zone of the Ring and noticing one of Wraith’s Dimensional Rift portals left unattended.

After setting down Wattson’s electric fence next to the Wraith’s portal, which was likely used to help the players into the safe zone quicker, Kossuranta simply sat back and waited for the enemy squad to fall victim to the trap, adding a few extra shots in where necessary and completing the squad wipe.

Wraith is often considered one of the best legends, but this trap counter to the highly-picked Legend’s Ultimate might be just what is needed to even out the playing field.

Wattson was actually hit with a fairly significant nerf in the Voidwalker event, now taking 5% more damage (just like Wraith, Pathfinder, and Lifeline), so becoming a master of her abilities is more important than ever.

More Apex Legends characters are expected to be on their way soon, with leaks of many new Legends abilities such as Rampart and Blisk already coming to light, as well as Crypto who many expected to be released in Season 2.

Although no Legends have been confirmed as of yet, many are expecting the next characters to be released as part of Apex Legends’ Season 3.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
