Apex Legends players have discovered a unique animation for Wattson’s Heirloom when the Static Defender breaks down doors.

The recently released Raiders Collection event finally introduced Wattson’s Energy Reader Heirloom to the game.

Although there was a lot of anticipation for the rare collectible after leaks revealed its base design, a lot of the community was disappointed with the final product, even labeling it as “ugly”.

Now the Energy Reader has been in the game for a few days, it seems as if players are finally warming to the Heirloom after seeing its wide range of incredible animations.

Wattson Heirloom animation is impressing Apex players

As showcased by AnuixYT on the Apex Legends subreddit, Wattson’s Heirloom has a special animation when breaking down doors and it certainly pushes the Energy Reader to its limits.

When attempting to melee a door, Wattson grasps the Heirloom with both hands causing the end of the device to spin. This animation makes sparks fly everywhere and results in the door being smashed or pushed open.

Although this may seem like a tiny detail, a lot of Wattson mains are incredibly impressed with this interaction as not all the Heirlooms in the game have a special animation when breaking doors.

Alongside the giant Nessie and door animations, Wattson also has a chance of fumbling and nearly dropping the Energy Reader as well.

This has been praised by the community as one of the most unique and cool interactions Respawn has ever put into the game.
