TSM pro Philip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen was left shocked after an enemy hit him with a new Horizon counter that disrupts her Gravity Lift in Apex Legends.

Despite being hit with a set of secret nerfs in Season 15 which have now been reverted, Horizon has remained an extremely popular character in the Apex Legends community.

With an overall pick rate of 7.3% and a staggering 21.5% in Predator, the Gravitational Manipulator is the favored legend for the majority of players in the upper echelons of Ranked.

Equipped with incredible mobility from her Passive and Tactical, as well as deadly crowd control from her Ultimate, Horizon’s kit is unbelievably strong in the hands of a skilled competitor.

This completely shocked Hal with him asking “how the f**k did that hit us” after they’d won the skirmish.

Laughing and saying that the ball had “aimbot”, the TSM members all agreed that this is a strong “Horizon counter”.
