Apex Legends star Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows showed off a neat trick to finish off enemy players by using his teammate as a sacrificial lamb after he’d done some of the heavy lifting already. 

While he may have retired from being a professional Apex Legends player back in December, Dizzy hasn’t strayed away from the game – continuing to play it on his Twitch stream, wowing fans with his ridiculously high-level gameplay.

The former NRG member attracts thousands of viewers who watch him dive into World’s Edge, picking up numerous victories on a daily basis. Watching such a talented player is a pretty surefire way to pick up some clever tips and tricks that can be translated into games of your own, and that was no different with Dizzy’s newest trick.

Twitter: ApexLegendsDizzy is no longer Apex Legends pro but he continues to stream the game on a daily basis.

During his February 1 stream, the popular battle royale player had been on his way to picking up another victory when he and his squad mates decided to have a little fun with the final player they had to take down.

Instead of using some sort of meme tactic involving all of his teammates, Dizzy stuck the one of them playing as Pathfinder with an Arcstar and sent them to zipline right on top of the final enemy.

While doing so, the popular streamer used his pinpoint accuracy to rip the enemy of their health points, leaving them with just enough that they would fall to their death as soon as his grenade finally exploded.

Of course, it worked to perfection and Dizzy racked up yet another victory in Apex, but it was his quick-thinking to send a teammate with an explosive attached to them into battle that really stole the show.

Now, while pretty clever, the tactic probably isn’t going to work 100% of the time – especially if you can’t nail an enemy with pinpoint accuracy like Dizzy can. Yet, it will be pretty interesting to see if other high-level players follow in his footsteps.

After players seem to be confused about the Apex Legends character Wattson “eating” grenades, a fan has taken to Reddit to explain just exactly what is going on – and the answer is a bit more complicated than it might seem at first glance.

Confusing special abilities are always bound to happen, especially in games like Apex Legends, where every characters ability is different. Wattson, who has been a part of the game since Season 2, is a perfect example of a character who has some crazy abilities, but can be a bit confusing for some players.

For those that don’t know, she can place down an “Interception Pylon” which blocks incoming grenades, equipment, etc. in order to protect you, similar to a Trophy System from the Call of Duty franchise. Some people have been confused by this ability, claiming it’s destroying or “eating” their own grenades, which is definitely a bit peculiar. Now, thanks to a player, there’s finally a decent explanation for what’s going on.

Wattson, who was added to the game over a year ago, has the ability to stop grenades.

Interception Pylon eating grenades?

According to Reddit user u/Jameso4e, who is a self-proclaimed Wattson main with 3,500 kills, there two different circles which appear when a player places the Pylon, one that destroys only “incoming” grenades/equipment and one that destroys all of them.

The outer rings is the one that destroys all equipment, meaning players should be looking to avoid standing near that one when throwing their grenades inside of the two circles. In layman’s terms, you’ll have to watch where you’re positioned if you don’t want the Pylon to “eat” your grenades.

In a video made by Jameso4e demonstrating the problem, players can very clearly see two circles. When he stands closer to the inner circle, he has no problem throwing grenades out but when he stands near the outer circle, the equipment gets “eaten”. While that may sound a bit confusing at first, once you practice, it seems to be pretty easy to master.

As to why the ability causing this, nobody really knows, but the user theorizes that it’s due to bugs. It’s been over a year since Wattson was added to the game, so here’s hoping that now that the ability has been explained, more people understand it.
