Genius Apex Legends trick lets you see through Bangalore’s smoke

A brilliant new strategy for Caustic, which allows him to see through Bangalore’s smoke, is blowing people away with how simple and effective it is.

Caustic’s gas traps are one of the most infamous abilities in Apex Legends, and they’ve been trapping the game’s more unfortunate players since the early days on King’s Canyon.

However, Reddit user xxGURIxx has posted a clip that shows the ability is extremely effective at revealing enemies, even when they should be hidden by Bangalore’s smoke.

Dropping smoke is usually a great way to provide instant cover for your team.

Typically, you’re unable to see other players through Bangalore’s smoke. Similar to CSGO, enemies shouldn’t be visible while they’re behind the smokescreen – but Caustic is able to change that.

His gas traps, which still give some players flashbacks to the bunker on King’s Canyon, seem to highlight enemies while they should be invisible rendered invisible by the fog.

The clip starts out the way most fights with Bangalore do – with her dropping smoke to cover her tracks, but GURI wasn’t going to be beaten so easily.

Tapping into their 500 Apex IQ, they threw down Caustic’s traps inside of the smoke field, and with the gas working like a poor man’s thermal site, the enemy players light right up.

Of course, you have to make Caustic’s traps available to use when you encounter a Bangalore for this to work, so be sure not to rush into a firefight with the ability on cooldown.

It’s unknown whether this is an intended effect or not, though; the legend’s gas does usually recolor players a sickly green-yellow, which seems to ignore the smoke effects.

Whether or not it’s intended or not, the effect is definitely in the game. So, if you happen to have Caustic unlocked, it’s worth giving a shot if you find yourself up against an enemy Bangalore.

That crafty enemy Bangalore player won’t know what hit them.

Caustic is both loved and hated by players for what his gas traps are capable of, and this brilliantly simple strategy will only add to that.

The newest teaser for Apex Legends Season 7 has gone live, with the previously leaked ‘UFO’ finally showing up on Kings Canyon. 

With Apex Legends gearing up for its seventh season, players have been eager for the devs – Respawn Entertainment – to start revealing some key details about what’s being lined up. However, Respawn has remained pretty silent on it, only hinting at what legends are being buffed.

In the meantime, leakers and players have been digging into files and picking out details from previous dev streams to try and find answers – with one of the biggest questions surrounding the mysterious UFO that has been spotted previously. 

The huge, metallic UFO was seen floating off the Broken Coast in a dev stream, before leakers were able to find it hanging high above Skyhook only a few weeks later. Now, though, it’s finally in-game.

The new teaser went live at 11 am EST/4 pm BST on October 23, with the previously leaked UFO showing up and lingering off the coast of Kings Canyon behind Airbase. 

Sadly, while some players assumed that it might be interactable and have some clues on board, you can’t actually reach the UFO at the time of writing.

Instead, as already noted, it’s just sat off the coast of Kings Canyon and floating in the sky – looming large and looking like it could be gearing up to get closer and closer over the next few days. 

However, it’s not all bad news. As reliable leaker Shrugtal pointed out, the new look UFO actually has actually been seen before.

The balloons actually appeared in the Loba teasers showing off, you guessed it, what appears to be Olympus.

Of course, in the past, many of these teasers have held key clues regarding new seasons and new legends, but we’ll just have to wait and see if we can get up close and personal with it.

If there are further teasers ahead of Season 7, you’ll be able to find the latest news and updates here on Dexerto as we’ll keep this article updated.
