Apex Legends Caustic players can get a whole lot more annoying once they all realize they can drop their traps through cracks, allowing them to hide their traps much better than before.

Caustic is generally considered one of the worst characters in the game, but with his ability to create gas rooms where he traps players in until they die, he has seen new life as becoming an annoyance.

Everyone knows how Caustic is able to get enemy players trapped in rooms with his traps but this new tip will make his traps much more effective, and much more annoying for other players.

Respawn EntertainmentCaustic is the master of annoyances.

The one problem with Caustic’s traps is they are huge so if there’s already one set up, you can avoid them quite easily.

However, if you are able to drop one through a crack into an area you didn’t know existed, then problems can arise. One Reddit user showed exactly how effective that could be.

You can put a trap where?

Reddit user 107azure pointed out you can drop a trap between cracks, showing how the trap could be hidden away behind a fence.

It would be very hard to notice this trap placement before it’s too late, making it an extremely effective spot. Unfortunately, you can’t trap anybody in a room like this so it’ll only be able to tick away a small chunk of health unless a fight takes place in the gas.

Reddit - 107azureTraps can get dropped in cracks.

This tip will likely act more as an annoyance than something you rely on for kills.

His gas trap rooms will definitely be the more effective strategy in terms of kills but slipping a trap in a crack will allow you to get an early edge during a fight.

Realistically, this doesn’t make Caustic any better but it does give you more options.

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
