An Apex Legends trick with Caustic has been giving players a way to safely hide the large-frame Legend using his Tactical Ability.

Since Respawn Entertainment launched their battle royale on February 4, players have been finding some of the strangest uses for every character in the game. From Wattson’s Perimeter Security to Wraith’s Into the Void, there are various ways to fool the competition.

But players were a bit surprised to find that Caustic, a Legend in the game with one of the biggest character models, actually has a pretty effective technique to go stealth in certain situations.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Toxic Trapper has some new tricks up his sleeve.

In a Reddit post, user ‘Negoneon’ uploaded a clip that showed him navigating through a precarious situation in the latter moments of a match.

With a Bangalore on the hunt for the low-health player, Caustic was struggling to find a safe spot to pop the 10-second timer of the Phoenix Kit.

Well with nowhere else to hide, the player figured to throw down a couple of Nox Gas Traps, but positioned one nestled between a few rocks.

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends players just found a whole new reason to be paranoid about Caustic.

They stood over it, waiting for the trap to expand while they used the Kit, and it worked like a charm. The trick might not have covered Caustic completely, but it definitely covered him enough.

Mere moments later the player rotated his view to look behind them, and Negoneon noticed the Bangalore emerge from the gases, just to slip on by.

you can hide inside nox traps. that’s very useful from r/apexlegends

It seems like the trick managed to deceive at least one player since Negoneon was able to finish healing up. They then quickly broke into a sprint heading toward the opposite direction of the hunting player for shelter.

While the technique provides a hilarious use for the Nox Gas Traps, some players cautioned that this might not be a trick to constantly rely on.

“It’s KIND OF useful, but don’t kid yourself,” one user wrote. “If you look at the trap, what you’ll see is a Nox trap that clearly has a Caustic attempting to hide inside it. But like your clip, a lot of people will run right by and not give it a second glance.”

Regardless, this trick could help out a player or two if they find themselves in a pinch on their way to an Apex Legends match win.

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
