Clever Wraith trick in Apex Legends makes your portal a deathtrap

Wraith mains have got a clever trick that allows them to dominate any Apex Legends players that decide to try and chase them through a portal.

As the Apex Legends seasons have been unfolding, players – rookies and veterans – have been finding new ways to use their favorite legends. It could be something as simple as holding a button rather than tapping to use an ability in a different way or getting a bit more in-depth by learning timings. 

For Wraith, in particular, players have been continuing to come up with new ways to use the Interdimensional Skirmisher in the battle royale depending on their play style.

Though, this newest tip doesn’t rely on your play style, but more so on enemies who decide they want to get greedy and chase you through your own portal in the hopes of taking you down.

Wraith is, by far and away, Apex’s most popular character.

It comes courtesy of Redditor Vikovi, who pointed out that if you jump before setting a portal exit, enemies who run through it after you will have a small fall to the floor.

That’s right if you leave a gap between the portal exit and the ground, enemies who pop through will become a stationary target for a few moments. Provided you’ve got a fast-firing weapon, say the R-99, you’ll have enough time to unload a magazine or two into them.

Though, you can get a bit more devious with things too. As Vikovi showed, if you happen to have a Thermite Grenade handy, pop that down as enemies are coming through and you’ll make life even more difficult for them. 

If you know someone is chasing you and they take your portal, try to always jump and place it in the either. As they’re falling, they’re a stationary target so you can easily beam them or throw a grenade to deal damage extra and confuse them from apexlegends

Of course, while a handy trick, it does all boil down to hoping that the enemies decide to get a little crazy and chase you through.

If they don’t decide to make the leap of faith, then you’ve just got a portal floating in the air and that could make you easier to spot to someone else.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
