Most effective way to use Wattson’s fences to win in Apex Legends

Wattson’s Perimeter Security fences can often have devastating consequences in the Apex Games, but combined with World’s Edge’s narrow caves players can be left with a tricky situation.

Apex Legends’ diverse roster of characters grant players with a wide array of abilities to choose from. From an Interdimensional Skirmisher to an Adrenaline Junkie, players are spoilt for choice. 

Despite being one of the least used characters in the game, Wattson’s abilities are often overlooked and can come in handy in most endgame situations.

EAWattson helped her father create the ‘Modified Containment Ring’ for the Apex Games.

The Static Defender’s Perimeter Security fences are often used to prompt a tactical standoff (of sorts) at the very highest level of competition. 

By arranging the node locations, players can create a seemingly impenetrable layer of security — giving your opponent very little wiggle room. 

One savvy player used this notion to their advantage, as they combined the calamitous effects of The Ring with Wattson’s fences to create a galvanic enclosure.

Placed in a do-or-die situation, this player found themselves in a one-versus-three. Knowing that taking on a whole squad in combat would likely result in a loss, they used their knowledge of World’s Edge to gain the upper hand. 

With the enemy squad on the edge of The Ring, the player set up a series of electric fences that zig-zagged their way through the cave. 

After gunning down the squad’s shields with their Charge Rifle, they retreated while their fences slowed down their enemies’ movement and The Ring finished them off. 

After the catastrophic effects of The Ring did the hard yards, the player was rewarded for their efforts by being granted Apex Champion. 

While Wattson’s fences are often seen to give teams an edge over other teams, they rarely have such a devastating effect as this, which does require an element of luck with The Ring’s timing and direction of movement.

Apex Legends devs respond to game-breaking Rampart Minigun bug

Apex Legends devs Respawn Entertainment have taken away Rampart’s ability to place her minigun on the Trident vehicle due to a new issue, but there’s no telling when it’ll be back. 

With the start of Apex Legends Season 7, Respawn Entertainment added a new legend in the form of Horizon and also whisked players away to a new map – the highly anticipated setting of Olympus. 

The new map, which has become quite popular with players already, has enough unique features to stand out from Kings Canyon and World’s Edge – with the most noticeable change being the introduction of the Trident vehicles.

These hovercrafts, which can fit three players at once, are scattered around the map and allow you to get from point A to B quickly, while players are also able to use certain abilities on-the-go. The most useful of which is Rampart’s minigun, which makes the vehicle incredibly deadly. However, there is a bit of a problem with it.

Players appear to have uncovered several bugs surrounding the vehicles introduced in Season 7.

Instead of being able to use the Ultimate ability on the back of a Trident as normal, players have found, since November 19, that trying to place the minigun on the vehicle will completely crash their game.

Numerous complaints were made on Twitter, the EA forums, and the Apex Legends subreddit, with the devs springing into action a few hours later. 

“Hey folks, as an FYI, we are currently disabling the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident in order to fix an error, the devs tweeted. “We’ll let you know when you can go ham again once things are fixed.”

As of writing, on November 20, Rampart’s ability is still unusable on the Trident, and there’s no telling when the devs will get the change pushed out. 

Seeing as it’s probably just a bit of rogue code, they’ll likely send a server-side update live, so you probably won’t need to download anything once the time comes. Though, we’ll keep you posted with any breaking news and updates.
