Apex Legends players have got a genius tip that lets you see exactly how long an existing Wraith portal has left before it ultimately disappears.

As one of the most popular and powerful characters in Apex Legends, it’s impossible to drop into a game and not see Wraith. The Interdimensional Skirmisher is the perfect choice for teams, and players, who want to keep a low profile and run rings around enemies.

However, unlike a lot of other characters, she doesn’t quite have timers or voice lines for when her abilities are set to run out. 

That can be a little annoying for Wraith’s who want to chain portals and void runs together in order to stay alive in the late game. Though, if you keep your eyes trained to the screen, you can get the timings down to a tee.

Wraith and her portal are an all too familiar sight in Apex.

All you have to do to figure out when Wraith’s existing portal is going to disappear is to watch the charge on her ultimate. As Reddit user Leth34 showed, once that hits 39%, her existing portal will disappear. 

Yet can still run through to the other side if you’re already inside a portal and the countdown has passed 39%. As you might have guessed, the portal will simply disappear once you come out on the other side.

The timings can change, however, if you have a gold helmet equipped. In that scenario, as many other players pointed out, the portal will stick around for a further 10% of the countdown and disappear at 49%.

Getting the timing right can obviously be very beneficial for Wraith players. As, ultimately, they’ll be able to make an even quicker and better escape from sticky situations. 

It can be difficult, of course, as you might struggle to keep an eye on the timer when you’re in a dangerous firefight. Though, if it is something you can keep in mind, it’ll pay off in the long run.

Cocky Apex Legends cheater banned after streaming hacks on Twitch

An Apex Legends hacker, ‘Loide90,’ has been exposed and swiftly banned after brashly streaming on Twitch, face cam and all, with obvious wall hacks enabled.

It’s one thing to feel emboldened enough to infuriate opponents and risk bans by hacking in a video game. It’s entirely another beast of brazen confidence to stream those hacks live on Twitch to over 700 viewers while casually hanging out with your face cam turned on.

As it turns out, an Apex Legends streamer, Loide90, boasts such levels of unabashed self-assuredness. During an October 25 stream, he was exposed for nonchalantly using wallhacks during a fairly busy broadcast.

And no, these were not Bloodhound’s brand of temporary superior visibility, restricted by cooldowns and location, as Loide90 could simply see vibrant, red enemy silhouettes through walls permanently. Since the exposure, he has apparently been banned on both Twitch and in the popular battle royale from Respawn Entertainment.

With numerous people taking to Twitter to call out Loide90’s untoward behavior, other streamers even got in on the action. One peer, by the name of ‘noobkingsmith,’ was watching the hacker live, granting viewers a chance to clip the cheats from someone else’s channel and thereby ensuring the clip wouldn’t be so easily deleted.

Clipped by ‘VixTrilogy’ and shared on Twitter with Respawn tagged directly, it was actually another tweet that appears to have gotten the developers’ attention and led to the eventual ban. 

After ‘Jonny,’ a professional player for SoaR, posted a clip showing how he died to the hacker, Respawn Producer Josh Medina responded confirming the cheater had been banned and that it wasn’t his first transgression.

Numerous others had tagged Medina and the dev followed up by letting the community know what a Twitch search for Loide90’s account also confirms: the account is banned. 

“I told him this would happen before banning one of his alts.” As Medina explains, he apparently had tried to broach the subject with Loide before and, with his warnings unheralded, was once again forced to ban the brash cheater.

It appears that the hacker’s Twitch account has been banned and, although it has yet to be confirmed, one has to imagine that his EA account for Apex Legends has also been purged.
