Caustic in Apex Legends

While attempting to nerf Caustic in the Apex Legends Season 13 update, the devs have accidentally given Toxic Trapper mains a way to become completely bulletproof.

Apex Legends Season 13 is here, bringing huge nerfs to Valkyrie and introducing the brand-new Defensive Legend Newcastle. Even though Caustic has remained one of the least-picked Legends in Season 13, a powerful new exploit means he’s not to be underestimated.

Caustic can no longer hide inside his traps, which should be a considerable nerf to the Legend, but it’s actually given him the game-breaking ability to become completely bulletproof.

Caustic used to have the ability to hide inside his own traps, which was perfect for ambushing enemies for free kills. Respawn Entertainment have now nerfed this ability, making it so that his traps will be uninflated if he’s too close.

However, in fixing this exploit, they’ve unleashed another that’s much worse. As pointed out by YouTuber Skeptation, even though the trap isn’t inflated, it still has a full-size hitbox. This means that Caustic can sit inside a circle of uninflated traps and be completely bulletproof.

To make it worse, traps can’t be destroyed until they start inflating, so as long as Caustic is nearby, they’re indestructible.

But you probably shouldn’t try to replicate this glitch yourself, as Skeptation explained that because it’s an exploit, players who abuse it will probably get banned. But luckily, there are ways to defeat these bulletproof Toxic Trappers.

How to counter bulletproof Caustics in Apex Legends

Even though these Caustics can be bulletproof in Apex Legends Season 13, that doesn’t mean they’re completely invincible.

If a Caustic is hiding behind their deflated traps, players can get them out with Grenades, and even use a frag to “yeet him out of the spot.” Plus, a melee will also knock him away from the traps.

It remains to be seen just how game-breaking this new Caustic exploit will be, but at least there are a few ways to counter a player abusing this exploit.

Apex Legends pro claims Season 13 ranked changes will make you a better player

An Apex Legends pro has come out in support of the Season 13 ranked changes, claiming it will make players better.

After receiving backlash, Apex Legends pro Mac ‘Albralelie’ Beckwith has shared his thoughts on the new Season 13 ranked system, claiming it will improve players.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some drastic changes to the ranked system, changing the way players gain points and grind through the ranks.

Previously, the system had been more focused on kills, but the new system places emphasis on placement. This has made it harder for players to earn points and level up, as the lobbies have become much more competitive in the final zones.

In Apex Legends Season 13’s Ranked Leagues, players are encouraged to stay alive and play for the win, rather than getting a load of kills. This had led to more squads and players being alive in final circles, making it harder to gain points.

While the community hasn’t been particularly fond of these changes, seasoned Apex Legends pro Albralelie gave his opinions on this new system, supporting the dev’s changes while making some controversial comments.

In a recent stream, the Apex Legends pro shared his feelings towards the changes, believing the new ranked changes are healthy for the game, which is contrary to the community’s reaction.

Ultimately, the pro feels as if the new changes are going to make players better at the game. Albralelie says that the new system “caters to you being able to actually improve as you climb…don’t get defeated.”

The streamer and Apex pro also made some interesting comments on solo players while answering a question about whether solo players should be able to reach the higher ranks.

The pro makes a controversial statement: “should a solo player be able to reach Masters in a team-based competitive BR? Just because it happened before doesn’t mean it was supposed to happen, right?”

It’s interesting to hear a professional Apex Legends player’s take on the new ranked system, especially as casual players have been pretty upset with the changes. All in all, the pro feels it will make players better, and even if players are now in lower ranks than they’re used to, they should use it as motivation to improve.

Clever Apex Legends trick reverts Kraber nerfs

With this clever trick, Apex Legends’ Kraber Sniper Rifle becomes a one-shot machine yet again, even after nerfs.

Apex Legends players have found a way to make the Kraber Sniper Rifle one-shot kill yet again after the Season 13 nerfs.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some pretty huge changes to the game, especially when it comes to the Legends and weapon meta.

As well as some major Valkyrie nerfs and the introduction of Newcastle, Season 13 also nerfed the only one-shot kill weapon in the game, the Kraber.

This combined with the Helmet buffs caused a change in the weapon’s one-shot headshot potential, but this new trick reverts the changes.

Prior to the nerfs, the Kraber would one-shot any Legend as long as it was a headshot. This made the weapon extremely powerful and useful in end-game situations, as just one shot could change the tide of a fight.

Now, in Season 13, as long as players have the correct armor requirements, the Kraber is no longer a guaranteed one-shot kill.

Having said that, thanks to Apex Legends content creator RossTheeSquirrel, there is indeed a way for players to one-shot any Legend with the Kraber even after the Season 13 patch.

By shooting through Rampart’s Tactical ability, Amped Cover, players actually gain an increase in damage as the shielded wall “amps outgoing shots.”

This increases the Kraber’s headshot damage to revert the Season 13 nerfs, making it a one-shot headshot against any Legend no matter what armor they are wearing.

While Rampart hasn’t been considered the most popular Legend in Apex according to the pick rates, she received a buff in Season 13 and players seem to be more interested in giving her a try.

Now, she also has this added benefit of being the only Legend that has the capabilities to make the Kraber a one-shot kill again, perhaps those who love the Kraber will give her a chance.

Apex Legends players want Pathfinder Passive from mobile

Apex Legends players are calling for the devs to give Pathfinder a new Passive seen in the mobile version of the battle royale.

Apex Legends players on PC and console have wanted a new Passive for Pathfinder for some time now, and the mobile version of the battle royale may have the answer.

Apex Legends Mobile has hit the ground running, with loads of content at launch including an exclusive Legend, Fade, who has some great abilities.

PC and console players have been slightly jealous about some of the features seen in Apex Mobile, wanting them included in the main version of the game despite getting an exciting new Legend in Newcastle.

Now, some are even suggesting that one of Pathfinder’s mobile-exclusive abilities should become his new Passive on PC and console.

Apex Legends Recon class

For those who are unaware, Pathfinder’s Passive has been extremely underwhelming for some time now, as the ability to scan Survey Beacons and reveal the next zone.

This is something that all Recon Legends can do, so the community has been calling for Pathfinder to have something more personalized for the Legend.

The devs did expand on this slightly, as now Pathfinder gets his Ultimate back after scanning, which isn’t the case for all the other Recon Legends.

Popular Apex Legends content creator TheGamingMerchant put out a video suggesting an idea for Pathfinder’s Passive, which is inspired by Apex Legends Mobile.

In Apex Legends Mobile, every Legend has a perk system that gives them new abilities and added benefits. One of Pathfinder’s is the ability to pull downed teammates with his grapple, which is called “Friend Reunion.”

TheGamingMerchant thinks this would be a great Passive for Pathfinder in the main game. This would give Pathfinder an added role of support, pulling downed teammates in to cover for a safe revive.

We’ll have to wait and see what the devs do to Pathfinder’s Passive in the future, as it’s unlikely that changes will be coming for the Legend anytime soon.
