ImperialHal claims Wraith buffs won’t make her meta in Apex Legends Season 16
Apex Legends pro player Philip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen doesn’t think the Season 16 Wraith buffs will be enough to make her meta.
Despite this, it’s the countless Legend buffs & nerfs that have the community most excited, as Respawn is making changes to nearly everyone on the roster.
Wraith is included in this, with the Interdimensional Skirmisher’s Ultimate distance being doubled from 76m to 152m. Not only that, Wraith now increases her movement speed over time when creating longer portals.
Although there’s no doubt this will boost her overall power, ImperialHal isn’t convinced it’ll be enough to make her meta.
ImperialHal doesn’t think Wraith will be meta in Season 16
During a recent stream, one of ImperialHal’s viewers asked him whether he believes Wraith will be meta after her buffs coming in Season 16.
In response, the TSM pro revealed that he doesn’t “believe Wraith will be good unless she moves really fast when she’s in ult, way faster”.
From his perspective, “good teams can easily just capitalize when someone is in Wraith’s portal… I just don’t think it’s as good as people think”.
Although Respawn has buffed the distance of Wraith’s portal, Hal doesn’t think that’s going to be impactful, arguing “when are you going to ever have time to run 150m?”
With the changes scheduled to arrive in-game on February 14, the Apex community doesn’t have long to wait before they can test out the Wraith buffs for themselves.
However, for Hal, they’re probably not going to be enough to propel Wraith into the meta or make her the Legend he’ll be piloting in the ALGS.
