How to use Wraith’s ‘Void’ ability to scout out enemies in Apex Legends

Wraith’s ‘Into the Void’ Tactical ability is often used to scurry out of a dangerous situation in Apex Legends, but there is more to her inter-dimensional shifting than meets the eye.

Wraith is the most popular choice of Legend among the battle royale’s diverse roster of characters. Given her low profile, small hitbox (relative to other Legends) and movement speed, it should come as no surprise why she’s the number one pick for the majority. 

The Interdimensional Skirmisher also rocks a solid set of abilities, which each support her ability to evade danger by utilizing the safety of void space. 

EAWraith’s ‘Into the Void’ ability momentarily places you into another dimension, where you can avoid taking damage from enemies.

However, while Wraith’s abilities are typically used to escape treacherous situations, entering the void also gives you an ability that rivals Pathfinder’s scouting proficiency, as one Reddit user pointed out.

Posted to the Apex Legends’ subreddit, the player shows how when another Wraith shifts into void space at the same time, their location can be spotted.

I don’t know how many people know this, but I just discovered it, if two Wraiths phased. They will see each others in the void. from apexlegends

While this only shows fellow teammates performing simultaneous inter-dimensional shifts, another user commented on how this ability can be used to spot any enemy in void space (i.e., traveling using Dimensional Rift Ultimate ability).

A dude won the game by throwing an Arc Star, going into the void and then seeing the other Wraith (last person on the other team alive) behind a Death Box and shooting her for the win. It was pretty crazy.”

Of course, deploying either Wraith’s Tactical or Ultimate ability purely to scout out enemies would require practice. Since its use is situational and there is an element of timing involved, this is something only the more experienced Wraith players would be able to utilize efficiently.

EAWraith can see a lot more than initially meets the eye, when shifting through void space.

While on the surface this appears to just have in-game applications, it also confirms that players are shifting into only one alternate dimension/reality when using void space (as opposed to flirting between several dimensions). 

Although the Voidwalker harnesses her void manipulation to run riot in the Apex Games, this newfound quirk within her abilities proves that Wraith really is a jack of all trades.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning her brother Droz, and another individual, Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

While it appears Evelyn is related to both of the soldiers, some fans are speculating that she is only related to Droz by blood, and Davis is more of a “brother in arms.” Regardless of the exact connection, it seems both Titanfall 2 characters had a close relationship with Evelyn and her son.

Mirage’s mother also says that the two would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to Mirage.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
