Game-breaking Apex Legends bug allows Wraith to survive in the storm

Already one of the most widely utilized characters in all of Apex Legends, Wraith has become even more powerful on behalf of a ridiculous exploit that allows her to indefinitely survive out in the storm.

Despite being a playable character from launch, dedicated Apex Legends fans have still been discovering a number of fascinating ways to use Wraith’s abilities in combat of late. 

From scouting opposing players while inside the ‘void’ to extraordinarily impressive maneuvers from some of the very best professional players around the world, there’s never any shortage of impressive developments with the character. A new exploit might take the cake for being the most powerful tactic of them however, as a repeatable trick allows Wraith to survive in the storm seemingly forever.

Respawn Entertainment - Apex LegendsWraith leads the pack as the most widely utilized character in all of Apex Legends.

Showcased from the losing side of the equation by Reddit user ‘imaminus,’ a new glitch involving Wraith’s ‘Into the Void’ ability allows her to repeat the effects of the mechanic over and over again without taking a single hit-point worth of damage.

Into the Void turns Wraith invincible for a total of three seconds, not a great deal of time in the grand scheme of things. However, this is the tradeoff for what is essentially a get out of jail free card that can help you flee from potential danger in the blink of an eye.

With a 25 second cooldown in effect, the ability is typically used as a means of rapid travel, however a new exploit seems to make it one of the most absurd mechanics in the game to date.

Repeating the three-second function without any form of cooldown in between, not only enables Wraith to survive any incoming damage from opposing players, but also every second of health-drain that comes when caught out in the storm.

With only one enemy left standing, a full squad of three teammates stood tall as the safe zone continued to shrink around them. Unable to dispose of the final opponent, the team tried all sorts of tactics to overrule the exploit and deal some damage to the Wraith player endlessly stuck in the void.

From Cautic’s Noxious Gas Traps to regular old bullets from an assortment of weapons, nothing appeared capable of breaking through and impacting the competitor. 

“I hate this champ so much,” a teammate chimed in as the final zone disappeared and all three players were eliminated in a matter of seconds, leaving Wraith as the final Legend alive and the ultimate victor.

Undeniably a ridiculous aspect of Wraith’s kit at this point in time, the three players who fought their way to the end without nefarious tactics felt robbed of a victory.

There’s no telling just how this exploit can be replicated but hopefully Wraith players steer clear of the evidently broken feature until Respawn Entertainment releases a patch to address the issue.

Fuse has finally been confirmed as the new Legend that will be added in Season 8 of Apex Legends, and while his abilities have not been revealed yet, there are quite a few leaks and teasers that give a good idea as to what they are.

Apex Legends Season 8 – called Mayhem – is expected to drop around the two-year anniversary of the game’s launch, on February 2, 2021, and along with the flurry of new content and changes comes a brand new Legend, Fuse.

Fuse will have a lot of expectations to live up to, as the most recent new character, Horizon, released in the strongest state of any post-launch character.

Whether this new recruit will instantly become part of the meta remains to be seen, but their leaked abilities might give us some indication. Here’s everything we know about the next character in line to be added.

Meet Fuse, the new Legend for Apex Legends Season 8!

After weeks of speculation, Respawn finally announced on January 18 that Fuse would indeed be the new Legend added for Season 8: Mayhem. They describe the character as one that “doesn’t lack confidence, but often lacks a plan. He’s a blow-up first ask-questions-later kinda guy.”

Fuse’s origin story is quite an explosive one; he’s from a planet called Salvo and made a name for himself winning pit fights and other similar fighting competitions. Eventually, it gets revealed that he’s been chosen to compete in the Apex Games, a decision that his longtime (and jealous) friend doesn’t appreciate.

In the S8 ‘Stories from the Outlands’ video, Fuse and his friend get into a skirmish until she tosses a grenade between them, with the subsequent explosion costing the explosives expert his arm, which is why he sports a robotic one in the Apex Games.

What are Fuse’s abilities? Leaks & teasers

As mentioned above, Respawn did not reveal Fuse’s ability kit when announcing him as the S8 Legend, so we’ll have to wait until the devs decide to roll out those details. Until then, there’s enough info out there, in leaks and teasers, for us to piece the puzzle together a bit.

From the character’s name and marketing, it’s clear that his abilities feature explosives and explosions, which makes sense considering that in-game teasers already suggest as much. Here’s a look at the teaser for his Ultimate.

This ability was part of a leak that surfaced in early 2021 containing the Legend’s other powers. The Ult is apparently going to be named Firebomb (fitting, considering the teaser above) while his Tactical is called Projectile Grenade, likely involving that golden grenade he’s shown with throughout the trailer.

  • Ultimate: Firebomb

Sound files for the abilities were also found and leaked by Biast12.

What’s perhaps most interesting is that these abilities seem to line up with a Legend concept that was first posted back in May 2019 on Reddit – with the name of the concept also called ‘Fuse’.

This concept by a fan was also called an ‘explosives expert’, so it seems possible that Respawn could have taken inspiration from this character idea. This is what the concept looked like (note this is a fan-made concept – not the official Fuse Legend).

This fan-made concept for a Legend called Fuse was very popular back in 2019.

It won’t be long until Respawn reveal the official names and details for all three of Fuse’s abilities, but these leaks and teasers give us a pretty clear idea of the type of character he will be in the Apex Games.
