Apex Legends players are always looking for ways to have an advantage over their enemies in Kings Canyon and this new trick with Mirage’s decoy could be just the ticket they need.
The free-to-play battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment launched on February 4 and has already received plenty of praise. In the weeks since it’s release, the title has amassed over 25 million players - all looking to be crowned an Apex Champion, at least once.
Despite the huge player base, fans are still finding little tips and tricks that can help in their quest for victory. Players have been searching for plenty of different ways to negate the Caustic legend - and they just may have found another using Mirage.
In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user nauee explained just how Mirage’s decoy tactical ability can be used as a scouting tool. When playing as Mirage, players can send the decoy towards a Caustic’s Nox Gas Trap and once the decoy takes damage, the location of the opponent will be revealed.
However, the reveal of the Caustic’s location is not limited to a certain distance - meaning that the enemy could be hundreds of meters away and their position would still be known. Nauee added that the tip can also be used in a similar fashion with Bangalore’s ‘Rolling Thunder’ airstrike and Thermite grenades.
The trick is just another way to work around the powerful Caustic. Players have done their best to find ways of nerfing the character's ability to defeat them in-game - including discovering how to counter the powerful gas trap before it is set off.
On the flip side, it adds a new dimension to Mirage and Mirage mains won't have any issues with that.
