Strange Apex Legends bug makes Caustic’s Nox Gas Trap invisible

An Apex Legends player has uncovered a strange bug that makes Caustic’s Nox Gas Trap invisible but sees the ability still suffer damage from shots.

Ever since the start of season three, Apex Legends players have been uncovering more and more bizarre bugs as the days tick over.

We’ve seen issues with being able to get into matches, being handed free wins, and even being able to change Legend mid-game. Yet a new issue with Caustic’s Nox Gas Trap ability may make the character unusable until a fix is in-place.

Caustic is one legend you’ll regularly find on the World’s Edge battlefield.

In a post to the apex Legends subreddit, user themanianino showed off a highlight from one of their recent games where they were able to pick up an impressive squad wipe.

At the tail end of that wipe, however, the Wattson player had been chasing down a Caustic who was in the middle of a revive. As any smart Caustic player might do, they seemingly dropped a Nox Gas Trap for cover but it didn’t appear on themanianino’s screen.

From their point of view, it appeared as if they had a clean run to finishing off an exposed Caustic but they, in fact, managed to ring some shots off of the invisible trap. After a few moments, the trap appeared on-screen – still with a little bit of health left to be depleted before it would disappear for good.

Of course, it’s not the only problem that has arisen with Caustic’s Gas Traps in recent weeks – with another fan uncovering a problem that showed the ability having a mind of its own and going for a run.

Thankfully, though, members of the Respawn development do follow the subreddit for issues with the game, so this should be something they pick up on.

If it’s a bug they can fix quickly, or at all, however, remains to be seen but players will be hoping that they don’t run into any similar when chasing the crown of Apex Champion.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
