Apex Legends players have seemingly been using Mirage’s Vanishing Act ultimate incorrectly, with one Redditor showing how it should be used to gain wins, not backtracking to heal up.

Ever since the game released back in February, Apex Legends players have been finding new and genius ways to use items and abilities in-game. Be it Pathfinder’s grapple, or hiding with Caustic, there is a different use for nearly everything that is currently in use around Kings Canyon.

The newest, however, comes in the form – or several forms – of Mirage’s bamboozling ultimate which which many players use a defensive Ultimate, using it to escape from a gunfight unseen in order to heal up behind cover.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user red_dollar pointed out that while some players don’t seem to be fans of the legend’s Vanishing Act ultimate, suggesting it could be underpowered, there are ways to make it incredibly effective.

Instead of explaining why, though, the Redditor opted to show why they are such a big fan with a very satisfying compilation.

With a number of game-winning highlights, red_dollar uses the ultimate to force players back and flank them instead of how many players currently use it to retreat. Instead of Mirage going on the back foot, opposing players are left with no sight of the player, who is able to sneak up undetected for a free kill.

Other Mirage users chimed in, agreeing with the Redditor’s stance of using Vanishing Act to go on the offensive.

“I main Mirage and I find that the people who don’t like the ult are using it wrong,” added one user. “You have to use it how you are, offensively, rather than an escape.”

Another user noted that many players end up being frustrated by the ultimate because they run away and are eliminated by stray bullets.

They compared it to Wraith’s tactical ability, where players who use it as a “repositioning tactic and not an escape do well.”

Other Mirage mains may want to consider changing up their play style to suit the ultimate’s proper use, or even consider learning to use a different hero altogether that might just prove beneficial.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
