In one of the most creative Apex Legends finishes to date, this Mirage player completely bamboozled their opponent to get the victory.

Mirage is a Legend known for his amusing and distracting antics. From sending out holograms to going invisible, the creative character is all about utilizing visual trickery to gain the upper hand in combat. 

While many experienced players recently highlighted how Mirage is the Legend most desperately in need of a buff, there’s no denying that his abilities can often mislead even the most seasoned veterans in amusing ways.

Demonstrated throughout a December 1 matchup, Reddit user ‘iluvmonkeys581’ hilariously showcased how it’s not just Mirage’s abilities than can lead opponents astray, but also his finishing animations.

After racking up eight eliminations, two squads remained and the daring player figured that the timing was perfect for a melee finisher. Having downed a nearby Gibraltar, they went in to seal the deal.

Activating the Mirage animation wherein, a hologram spawned to confuse the downed opponent, a nearby enemy also happened to be caught in the confusion.

Focusing their fire on the wrong target, the final remaining player ultimately threw an easy elimination out the window and cost themselves the entire match in embarrassing fashion.

Referred to as the ‘Pound It, Bro’ finisher, this amusing animation hones in on one version of Mirage before a second figure blindsides the downed opponent. The hologram then bumps fists with real-world Mirage before fizzling out. 

Firing at the illusionary version of the character, the final remaining player was caught completely by surprise and subsequently left themselves exposed to a hail of bullets from the authentic Mirage.

“I’ve seen so many people get bamboozled by that finisher,” Reddit user BoauNerr responded. “I know what my next legendary purchase with crafting materials is gonna be.”

 

Undeniably one of the most amusing conclusions to an Apex Legends match, there’s arguably no more embarrassing way to lose than to unload an entire clip into the wrong target.

Despite the evident power of his hilarious animations, Mirage remains one of the least-picked characters in the popular battle royale title. Could he be the next Legend in line for a major overhaul?

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
