Apex Legends: How to combine Wraith and Wattson for overpowered combo

The release of Wattson with Apex Legends Season 2 has already inspired players to come up with incredibly creative ways of eliminating their opponents, and when combined with Wraith, Wattson could be the deadliest Legend yet.

Wattson has a very unique set of skills, all relating to her control of electronics, with her traps and interception pylons proving useful ‘situational’ abilities, somewhat similar to Caustic’s gas traps.

Due to the stationary nature of her abilities though, players using Wattson are somtimes forced into a slower, more static, playstyle, which can be a disadvantage against some of the other, more mobile, legends.

Respawn EntertainmentWattson’s electric fences can be deadly when set up correctly in Apex Legends.

Despite her slower play style, Wattson can actually excel when paired with Wraith, as long as you and a teammate work together in a duo.

Wattson’s tactical ability, Perimeter Security, allows her to create electric fences and nodes, which can completely set up a room as one big trap, but, with how obvious the traps are, luring enemies in is a bit tricker.

Reddit user Kevthekings99_YT and his squad found a method though, using Wraith. By using her portal to bait enemy players into chasing after a kill, Wraith can force opponents to land directly in the trap’s zone, allowing Wattson to mow them down and claim a potentially easy squad wipe. 

Even though the trap works brilliantly like this, some also suggested adding a Caustic player into the mix, to make for an even deadlier trap for unsuspecting players.

This is not the first idea that players have come up with which makes use of Wattson’s abilities to set up electric traps to eliminate opponents, as player’s have also been taking advantage of doors to incorporate the new legend’s play style.

The Wraith and Wattson combo makes for a great opportunity to pick up kills if you can find a room to set-up early, although the strategy will be much less viable in some of the more open areas of King’s Canyon.

Unsurprisingly, this tactic was shown to be most effective in bunker, where Caustic usually reigns supreme with his deadly gas traps in tight spaces.

Respawn EntertainmentCaustic was previously king of the bunker – does he have a new challenger?

But, with Wattson’s arrival, Caustic may be facing some competition for dominance in tight spots like bunker, with her traps able to surprise players trying to take the shortcut through bunkers.

Even if you’re not playing with Wraith, placing Wattson’s traps directly next to a large closed door will often also take players by surprise, giving you and your squad a big advantage.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
