For players looking to get “super sweaty” with Wraith in Apex Legends, we’ve got several strategies that’ll help you master the ‘Interdimensional Skirmisher’ and all her abilities, courtesy of Reddit user ‘CheekyTbag.’

Since even before the first season of Apex Legends, Wraith has always been among the more popular characters to use in the battle royale, which proved even more true after the game’s competitive side grew in prominence.

Her abilities, which manipulate space and time to outplay enemies, or escape them when necessary, are key fixtures in most squads, especially when it comes to the higher tiers of players.

Now that we’re in Season 6, there’s almost no excuse to not being at least decent when it comes to playing as Wraith; to help you reach a higher level, Redditor ‘CheekyTbag’ has some tips that we’ve broken down for you below.

“Super sweaty” Wraith strats

  • Use phase canceling to your advantage: Wraith’s ‘Into the Void’ Tactical ability, more commonly referred to as phasing, can be cancelled prematurely by activating and cancelling the Dimensional Rift Ultimate ability.
  • Estimate portal exit location: The Dimensional Rift portal extends to about 75 meters, which means you can use your ping system to estimate where the exit of the portal will be located.
  • Cancel portal when necessary: As long as you’re within three meters of where you activate the Dimensional Rift portal, you can cancel it and still be able to use it later.
  • Portal into final ring: During the closing moments of an Apex Legends match, by yourself some extra time by setting up your Dimensional Rift so that one exit is inside the final circle, which will allow you to keep going back and forth without incurring the regular amount of damage of being outside the safe zone.

  • Bait & trap players: If you find yourself outside the safe zone with enemies nearby, try and use your Dimensional Rift to get to safety but in a way so that they’ll also be tempted to follow you, at which point you’ll be set up to mow them down as they file through the portal’s exit.
  • Phase around corners during gunfights: The Into the Void phase ability comes in really handy when you’re in a jam, and using it around corners can really help you gain an advantageous position while also causing chaos.
  • Portal to help respawned teammates: Respawn players who have just been brought back to the map often find themselves out in the open without weapons or gear. If this applies to your team, use your portal to set them up at a more secure position where your squad can hold the line while the recently-returned teammate loots up.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
