Apex Legends player finds a new spot to trap people with Caustic’s gas

An Apex Legends player found a new spot in the Bunker to spam Caustic’s Gas Traps, bringing a renewed terror back to King’s Canyon.

Respawn Entertainment had cleaned up the dreaded Bunker room in the March 19 patch by taking away the camping spots along the high walls of the room. But it looks like there’s one more spot for players to watch out for.

In a Reddit post, user ‘tpqzefir’ put together a hilarious compilation using a new place to perch themselves, bringing the Toxic Trapper true to form once again.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Toxic Trapper can finally live up to his name once more.

Ruining matches to the tune of the original Wii Shop Channel music, the Caustic player can be seen hanging out in the Northeast corner in one of the Bunker’s Server Rooms sitting and waiting for a victim.

The room is painted black halfway above the wall, where the player is comfortably fixed above, making it hard for passerby players to notice them while looting.

Like the last high spots, if Caustic aims his Gas Traps correctly they could actually trap a player within the room as it fills with toxic Nox fumes.

The result: a stress-induced panic by the trapped player while they slowly realize that their match will soon come an end. But it seems like tpqzefir was having a blast doing it.

Respawn EntertainmentCaustic mains can once again reign terror from above.

His video showed instance after instance of him throwing down the Gas Traps at the opportune moment, whether a single person came to loot the room or a fight broke out with him just waiting in the sidelines to clean up damaged players.

Commenters were split on what to hate about tpqzefir’s discovery. Some people hated that he posted the video which will undoubtedly result in more players trying out the spot, while Caustic mains hated it because now more of the community is aware about the exploit to counter it.

The new spot can be used for great effect and tons of fun, so it will be interesting to see if Respawn cleans this spot to or leaves it for Caustic players to enjoy themselves.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 update time

The update is expected to go live at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM GMT. There’s no patch to come with it, so there won’t be any big downloads to worry about.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020 trailer

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

New Hover Tanks will be added in the seasonal event.

These will follow along with the train, and your team will respawn and jump from these back down into the action at the start of each round – unless you won the previous round, in which case, you’ll start on the train.
