An Apex Legends player has shared a genius trick with Wraith, which enables the Interdimensional Skirmisher to be completely invisible, even after being detected by an enemy scanner. 

When it comes to Apex Legends, a huge part of the game is learning how each legend’s unique abilities interact and overlap. Full knowledge of these factors should mean you’re equipped to counter any incoming legend.

This is exactly what one player has done, sharing a genius Wraith trick that enables her to remain hidden, even after having her location scanned by an approaching enemy.

Wraith has been one of Apex’s most popular legends since launch.

The Redditor – user RancidLoaf27 – shared the clever trick on July 23, explaining that players can simply enter the void in order to hide from enemies, even after they have been scanned by an approaching opponent.

The attached clip shows the player hiding in a building, before they are scanned by an enemy team. However, after having their location revealed, the Redditor remains calm and uses the Into The Void ability, all while remaining completely still.

This prevents detection as, when in the void, it is actually the blue trail that releases when moving that gives away a Wraith’s position. The trick works a treat, as an enemy Gibraltar peeks around the door, but quickly moves off after failing to spot the invisible Wraith.

The trick gained a lot of attention on Reddit, with users praising the high IQ play. Many also praised the player for their controlled trigger finger, refraining from taking on an entire enemy team, even after being presented with the opportunity of ambushing the unsuspecting Gibraltar.

It goes to show how Apex can reward intelligent plays, as well as reaffirming Wraith’s standing as one of the game’s most powerful legends.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
