A talented Apex Legends cosplayer has plucked Wattson straight out of World’s Edge and sparked her to life with this electrifying cosplay — and it’s so deadly, it hertz!

Wattson has been a staple character of the Apex Legends roster ever since her explosive entrance in Season 2.

And after changing the landscape of Kings Canyon forever, the Static Defender soon became a go-to character for many fans.

Wattson made her dramatic entrance into the Apex Games in Season 2, and has been a fan-favorite ever since.

With plenty of fans relating to Wattson’s quirky personality, various cosplayers have jolted her to life with their renditions.

Both Cosplamy and Nikki Brutal paid homage to the Static Defender with their flawless takes on the Legend’s original attire — which had the everything from the color scheme to the hairdo on lock.

However, fellow cosplayer, sperrens has added her own unique twist to Wattson by combining her original ensemble with the hood from an Epic skin.

Captured by Kameraninja at the recent PAX East expo, sperrens’ outfit is complete with a realistic version of Wattson’s backpack, orange parka and the trademark scar on her face.

Sperrens was even joined by malinkacosplay, who posed as the Apex Games’ very own Interdimensional Skirmisher — with the pair recreating a skit from fan-made artwork.

It’s no surprise that sperrens’ cosplay was lapped up in the comments of her Instagram post, given the attention to detail throughout the whole outfit. Heck, fans must have thought they’d spawned in World’s Edge when looking at both Wraith and Wattson posing together!

Wattson was joined by fellow newcomers, Crypto and Revenant at PAX East, where the trio would have most definitely turned heads all weekend long.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning her brother Droz, and another individual, Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

While it appears Evelyn is related to both of the soldiers, some fans are speculating that she is only related to Droz by blood, and Davis is more of a “brother in arms.” Regardless of the exact connection, it seems both Titanfall 2 characters had a close relationship with Evelyn and her son.

Mirage’s mother also says that the two would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to Mirage.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
