Apex Legends players have uncovered an unusual bug that is making Wraith, quite literally, become the Void after a failed finisher attempt. 

Ever since Apex Legends has been around, players have been finding strange and unique bugs that might be annoying at first, but can actually be pretty hilarious to look back upon.

We’ve seen players be unable to drop into games because the map has become a colorful circle in the sky, Gibraltar’s face might end up disappearing in the pre-game menu, and there are plenty of others. Yet, players have uncovered a new issue that can make Wraith become one with her Void following a failed finisher attempt.

The strange issue was showcased by Reddit user MasturNater7, who showed off one of their finisher attempts from a recent game. As the Wraith player summoned her Void for the Into the Light finisher, another Wraith decided to throw a punch at them – canceling out the finishing maneuver. 

Instead of the game returning to normal, MasturNater7 was left with half of their screen being replaced by the inside of the Void as it obscured their vision while the enemy players tried to take them out of the game. Though, they did manage to hang on and stay alive in the game.

While the bug might be pretty hilarious to see as an outsider who it hasn’t happened to, it is sure to cause a bit of a panic when it happens to someone. If you’re unable to see even a tiny part of your screen, you might end up running into an enemy that you didn’t know was there.

If it becomes a bit more widespread than just one or two instances, Respawn will likely have to investigate in order to figure out what is going on. For now, though, just be wary of someone trying to stop your finisher. Your legend might end up looking pretty different.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
