Apex Legends streamer finds another zero cooldown exploit for Wraith

Apex Legends streamer bor0 has revealed a new glitch with Wraith that allows the legend to have no cooldown on her tactical ability so long as the player uses a zipline balloon.

With plenty of Apex Legends fans gearing up for the start of season four, Assimilation, they are still dropping into matches on the current World’s Edge map.

While many games run pretty smoothly, there have been a few bugs and issues rearing their heads. We’ve seen problems with just being able to get into games if you’re level 500, the map not loading, and even being unable to loot the death boxes of fallen foes. Yet, there’s a new, pretty big glitch, that has been discovered with Wraith and her Into the Void tactical ability.

EA/RespawnWraith is one of the most popular legends in Apex Legends.

The exploit was shown off by Apex Legends streamer bor0 during his February 1 stream, with the small broadcaster playing as the Interdimensional Skirmisher.

While playing by himself, the streamer told viewers that he was going to “try something” as he began traveling up one of the balloons with Wraith’s tactical fully charged. Just before he reached the top, bor0 quickly triggered the ability and started floating back to the safety of the ground.

As he reached the floor, and the ability finished off, he was greeted with another full charge. The streamer quickly proved that it wasn’t a one-hit-wonder either, heading up another balloon to repeat the process and getting the same outcome.

“It’s not as good as the other exploit but this one should be really toxic,” bor0 said after it worked again. “No cooldown.”

The previous exploit, which was later patched, allowed Wraith mains to constantly use the ability without the help of the ballon. Instead, interrupting it with a melee attack was all that was required.

Of course, having another major bug with Wraith isn’t ideal and is something that Respawn will have to address before Season 4 gets underway. As of now, it is unknown whether or not they are aware of it, but if they are, a quick fix could be in order.

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.
