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.

Respawn Entertainment has finally announced the release date for when Apex Legends is coming to Steam, meaning that PC players no longer have to rely solely on EA’s own Origin launcher to boot up the title.

EA has teamed up with Steam, bringing their EA Play service to the platform. You can also now buy Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and FIFA 21 on Steam too. It was only a matter of time until Apex joined the lineup.

However, the Apex release is now on its way, after it was initially expected to drop on Steam at the same time as Apex’s launch on Nintendo Switch, as well as the introduction of cross-play.

When is Apex Legends coming to Steam?

After plenty of leaks and rumors about the big release, Respawn finally confirmed on October 23  that Apex Legends is coming to Steam on November 4, along with the release of Season 7.

“Apex Legends is officially coming to Steam when Season 7 launches on November 4, 2020,” they revealed in a blog post.

EA first teased a partnership with Steam on October 25, when they tweeted out a video of an EA-emblazoned mug with steam coming out of the top of it.

This doesn’t mean that EA games will no longer be available on Origin, instead they will also be available on Steam with players able to play with friends on either launcher.

EA/Apex LegendsPlayers on all platforms will be able to with and against each other in Apex Legends.

Exclusive Steam cosmetics for Apex Legends

As a reward for players coming to Apex Legends on Steam, three exclusive weapon charms will be available. The charms themselves are related to Valve games Portal and Half-Life.

Apex Legends on mobile?

EA previously confirmed that they were working on a mobile version of Apex legends, but have gone quiet since. The Nintendo Switch release has now also been delayed until a later date.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” Respawn revealed, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends Cross-play

Cross-platform play was confirmed during EA Play in June, and was expected to release at the same time as the Steam and Nintendo Switch versions, “when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play.”

It was also confirmed, in the October 23 announcement, that PC players on Origin can switch to Steam and keep their account progress on the other launcher.

“If you’ve previously been playing on Origin, feel free to give it a spin on Steam,” Respawn Game Director Chad Grenier added, “all your account progression and unlocks will carry over between the two platforms. ”

EA stopped selling new games through Steam several years ago, instead choosing to run games through their own platform, Origin. This return allows them to reach a wider player-base.

Apex Legends has been a resounding success for EA. It reached 50 million players worldwide in just 28 days, challenging Epic Games’ global phenomenon Fortnite.
