Apex Legends players have found a bizarre glitch that causes Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps to detonate at random on the World’s edge map.

Caustic is known for his unique ability kit in Apex Legends, featuring lethal gas-based equipment that players can use to outplay their opponents.

While players often debate over just how strong the character’s skill set is, a new glitch has been found which prevents the Toxic Trapper from maximizing his damage in-game.

A bug has been found which can trigger Caustic Nox Gas Traps to detonate randomly after being placed without any enemies around.


It was revealed that this bizarre bug would occur inside the Harvester, in the center of the World’s Edge map, leaving many Caustic mains confused as to why they were detonating by themselves.

“I found that whenever I’m in harvester on World’s Edge, my gas traps will randomly detonate as soon as I place them,” explained Reddit user u/Bananabob86, who first shared the glitch.

While it is known that Caustic’s gas traps can often lead to some strange interactions when placed near doors, the Apex Legends fan later revealed that this was not the case.


“Even when I place them far enough away so that they’re not touching the door they still detonate,” they added.

Although it is unclear just what the cause of the glitch is, with some suspecting that the nearby lava could be a possibility, others have claimed that they have had similar experiences with the character’s Nox Gas Traps.

Caustic’s Nox Gas abilities have been a hot topic of discussion in recent months after Respawn devs revealed why they had yet to change the effects of the toxic fumes, despite receiving some criticism from the players.
