An Apex Legends player has pulled off an absolutely incredible Arc Star throw that directly hit an opponent 250 meters away using Fuse’s passive ability.

The arrival of Season 8 has meant a lot of exciting additions and changes for Apex Legends players. From extensive map changes to King’s Canyon to the new 30-30 repeater rifle, there’s plenty of content to get stuck into in the new season.

However, perhaps the most significant update of Season 8 was the arrival of Fuse to the roster of Legends. Although he hasn’t been out long, he’s already become a fan-favorite legend among the community. One aspect of his kit that everyone loves is his ability to throw grenades further and more accurately than any other character.

Well, one Apex player has shown exactly what Fuse’s passive ability is capable of, landing a 250 meter Arc Star throw on an opponent.

Apex Legends player lands insane Arc Star throw

A thread posted to the Apex Legends subreddit of a player landing a 250m Arc Star throw has gone viral with thousands of responses.

Using the new Legend Fuse, CompControlled can be seen firing a grenade at a set of opponents far away in the distance. His first attempt falls slightly short so he loads up an Arc Star and goes for a second try.

After lining up the shot, his teammates ping exactly where the enemies are located and he adjusts the indicator to ensure it lands directly on them . Then, he goes for the throw and the star flies through the air and directly hits an opponent over 250 meters away. Completely lost for words, he and his teammates burst into laughter, in shock that he actually landed a direct hit with the star.

It’s fair to say CompControlled’s throw was extremely lucky and would be difficult for any Apex Legends player to replicate. However, it does show how effective Fuse’s passive can be when used properly at range.

We’ll have to keep an eye out for anymore extraordinary Fuse grenade clips as there’s guaranteed to a lot more over the course of Season 8.

Apex Legends Season 8 event, Chaos Theory, is expected to release in March, and will launch alongside the release of Apex on Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about the event so far, including release date, leaks, rumors and even an heirloom to be expected.

When is Chaos Theory event in Apex Legends?

The event is expected to start on March 11, just a couple days after the Switch release for Apex Legends, on March 9. This will follow the conclusion of the Anniversary Collection event on March 3, after it was extended by a week.

Events typically last between two and three weeks, so expect a similar time frame for Chaos Theory.

Despite no official announcement yet, we know it will be called Chaos Theory after Target revealed it early on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

Caustic Town Takeover

Respawn have been teasing the next Town Takeover, expected to be for Caustic, in-game. The first teaser dropped on February 23.

The Town Takeover will be at Water Treatment on Kings Canyon, but we will have to wait until Respawn do a full reveal to see what it looks like.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only original launch Legend who hasn’t received an heirloom yet, and all signs point to her being next up.

Numerous leaks from data miners have found what Bangalore’s heirloom will be, so you can check it out here if you don’t mind the spoiler.

The Anniversary Collection event provides the opportunity to get 150 heirloom shards, so if you’re a Bangalore main, you might want to hold on to those shards for a bit.

Chaos Theory event skins

We don’t yet have any images of the skins coming in the event, but data miners have narrowed down which Legends we can expect some new cosmetics for specifically.

Thanks to reliable leaker Biast12, the expected event skins are for the following characters:

Legendary:

  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson

There are also files for numerous recolors for past event skins, but we’re not sure yet if these will be available during the Chaos Theory event, or separately.


That’s everything we know so far about the Chaos Theory event, though there are still a lot of details unknown. We’ll keep you updated on everything right here, and on Twitter @TitanfallBlog.
