Apex Legend season two may only be a few days old, yet players are already uncovering genius ways to use Wattson’s electric trap. 

The highly-anticipated season two of Apex Legends was finally released by Respawn Entertainment on July 2 – adding a ton of new content to the game, as well as a brand new legend. 

After months of speculation, Wattson finally joined the Kings Canyon cast as the newest legend. The electrical genius has already left many a player frustrated with her electric traps but one player may have just found the best use for them moving forward.

EAWattson can harness electric power to wreak havoc on Apex Legends players.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user GamingBasicTV, pointed out that these electric fences can be erected behind closed doors to spring a trap on unsuspecting players. While that may not be new information for every player, it’s clearly a helpful tip for anyone who has yet to dive into the world of season two. 

The Redditor also noted they had already been experimenting with maximizing the traps potential, showing that players can create a criss-cross like field that will trap enemy players who try to burst through. 

As the traps don’t give off any sort of signal that they’re there, it’s an almost perfect way to catch unaware players in your grasp.

It immediately took the fancy of many Apex players on the subreddit – with the post receiving a few compliments. “Wow cool. I’m used to seeing people never use them or put them in an open field,” commented one user.

Of course, not everybody was sold on the tactic and pointed out that it may need a few tweaks. One such comment from JesterOfGames stated: “I mean that is smart but impractical.”

It remains to be seen just how many players pick up on GamingBasicTV’s tactic, and just how many will adapt it to make it their own. 

With season two barely in its infancy, there are sure to be more tips and tricks related to the new legend before Respawn makes any sort of sweeping changes.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
