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 update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.


Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.


Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.


Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.

  • Pathfinder’s shoulder staying in view after using grapple
  • Crypto unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode
  • Moved Performance Display so it doesn’t overlap with Kill/Assists HUD element in Ranked
