Secret Apex Legends mechanic makes Fuse’s Ultimate more accurate

Apex Legends fans have discovered a hidden mechanic that makes Fuse’s Ultimate, The Motherload, far more accurate.

Published

Fuse Apex Legends Season 8

Most Apex Legends players know how devastating Fuse’s Ultimate Ability can be, but this hidden mechanic makes it all the more accurate – and lethal.

Fuse, the latest addition to the Apex Legends Season 8 roster, is a demolitions expert and his abilities are designed to highlight this. He can fire a cluster of mini-explosives to damage and disorientate enemies, as well as throw grenades faster and further with his prosthetic grenade launcher.

His Ultimate Ability, The Motherload, is the most devastating of all. It drops a ring of fire into an area designated by Fuse, and the ring will damage and slow down enemies inside while ignoring your teammates.

Fuse The Motherload Apex Legends

Like Bangalore and Gibraltar, the area on the map the Ultimate will hit is highlighted by a mark on the ground. The Motherload can be fired up to 200 meters away, so as you can imagine, hitting players from that distance without an optic will be tricky.

However, what Apex Legends doesn’t tell you is that The Motherload can be zoomed in for better accuracy.

According to the Apex Legends Wiki, holding the aim down sight button will give you a whopping 3x magnification.

You’ll be able to see enemies first, and dropping The Motherload on top of them will stop them in their tracks and allow your team to close the gap for a quick clean-up.

Not only does this trick make Fuse’s Ultimate more powerful, but it’s also a great tool for scouting the area ahead.

With Apex Legends’ attachment-based looting system, you’re not always going to find a high-zoom optic in the early game. So if you’re running Fuse as your Legend, simply take out The Motherload and ADS for a clear picture of what lies ahead.

As Apex Legends hasn’t highlighted this mechanic itself, it may have passed you by. Utilize it in long-range situations with Fuse, and you’ll give your squad a significant advantage.

Apex Legends Maggie teaser confirms leaked weapon attachment

The new Apex Legends ‘Stories from the Outlands’ trailer has confirmed the arrival of a previously-leaked Season 12 weapon attachment.

Mad Maggie in Apex Legends

The trailer for Mad Maggie’s ‘Stories from the Outlands’ episode has confirmed the arrival of a certain weapon attachment that was leaked for Apex Legends Season 12.

Apex Legends fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Season 12 and all the new content that it will bring. The most notable addition is the new Legend Mad Maggie that will be joining the game’s ever-growing roster.

A trailer was released for the new character’s ‘Stories from the Outlands’ episode. This teaser also confirmed the arrival of a Season 12 weapon attachment that was leaked back in early January.

The Stories from the Outlands trailer shows Maggie being held at gunpoint by Apex Legends Syndicate soldiers. There are bright green laser sights attached to the weapons being held by those troops.

This confirms the leaks which pointed to the arrival of this weapon attachment in Season 12. According to those, this laser sight will be coming in different colors and exclusively for Pistols and SMGs.

At the time of writing, we don’t have more details beyond this. Some players have been speculating that the color of these laser sights will be customizable much like the Apex Legends reticles.

This has led to players wondering if we’ll also see the arrival of other leaked attachments, including the Explosive Lobber for the L-Star and the Kinetic Loader for the Volt, Peacekeeper, and Alternator.

Even if all of these attachments are currently in the game files, there’s no way to know if they’ll become available during Season 12. We may have to wait a while before they’re added to the loot pool.

It would make sense to see them in Season 12, as that is the next big update. Hopefully, the developers will officially announce if and when these new pieces of content will be added to the game.

Who is Apex Legends Season 12’s Mad Maggie? Abilities & lore

Apex Legends Season 12 will bring Mad Maggie as a playable Legend, but who is she and what are her abilities?

Published

A lot of Apex Legends players are asking questions about Mad Maggie, especially as she has now been revealed as the Season 12 Legend.

Apex Legends has a lot of lore and character development that even spans from the Titanfall series. Despite not becoming a playable Legend until Season 12, Mad Maggie has been involved in the game’s lore ever since Fuse was introduced.

With the latest Stories from the Outlands video providing players with information regarding why she will be involved in the Apex Games, what will her abilities be and what’s her backstory?

Who is Apex Legends’ Mad Maggie?

Mad Maggie was introduced to players as Fuse’s close friend on Salvo, the home planet of both characters. They grew up together and developed a close bond that Fuse broke when he left Salvo and joined the Apex Games.

Whether Maggie was jealous or just felt betrayed, she didn’t like Fuse’s departure at all, causing a fight that ultimately ended in Fuse losing his arm.

We also saw Maggie ambush and ruin Fuse’s debut appearance at the Apex Games by destroying the Kings Canyon map for Season 8’s launch. Maggie was also responsible for the War Games event in the same season, where she took over the games, changing the rules with LTMs and becoming the announcer.

Since then, she has been causing havoc to the Syndicate, the group behind the Apex Games and the ones responsible for taking her home planet and best friend Fuse away from her.

Apex Legends Mad Maggie abilities

As the new season has only just been announced, we are yet to receive official information regarding Mad Maggie’s kit and abilities.

Having said that, dataminers were able to find a promotional image for the Legend that shows her with a shield and some sort of whip, which could definitely be part of her kit.

As well as this, it’s believed that Mad Maggie’s code name in the game’s files was Husaria, which previously had some leaked abilities along with it:

  • Passive: Shotgun Kick
    • Husaria has a shotgun on her leg that fires when she melees doors or enemies. Requires shotgun ammo. Using your abilities grants you a brief speed boost.
  • Tactical: Flashbang 
    • Throw a grenade that briefly blinds and deafens opponents.
  • Ultimate: Concussive Breaching Charge 
    • Plant a breaching charge that fires a sonic wave through walls to destroy traps, force open doors and disorient enemies.

These are all previously leaked abilities and should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt. Mad Maggie’s abilities have likely changed a lot since she was code-named Husaria and these abilities above may not resemble her official kit when Season1 2 drops.

Players will likely know more about Mad Maggie’s kit when the reveal trailer drops on January 27. We will make sure to update this piece as the information goes live so stay tuned.

Respawn love to celebrate the Apex Legends anniversary with an event. The game is approaching its third birthday and for those interested in the date, here’s when Apex Legends’ anniversary is.

Apex Legends is known for having great content updates and communication with the community. Not only has Season 11 brought more server stability, but it also introduced a great new map and Legend.

With that being said, players are always hungry for new content, with Season 12 on the way. With how special the Season 8 Anniversary event was for 2021, it’s only right that fans are intrigued about the next one.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event.

When is Apex Legends’ Anniversary?

Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale was released on February 4, 2019, making this date its anniversary every year since its launch. In celebration, players typically get an in-game event to mark the date.

This year, Apex Legends Anniversary will coincide with the launch of Season 12 on February 8, and so far it seems they won’t be marking the third anniversary of the game with an event, but rather “Login Rewards.”

What to expect for Apex Legends’ Anniversary event

In the previous Anniversary event, players were blessed with a whole Collection Event and Reward Tracker. This year, players will be getting login rewards for the month of February.

Starting from Season 12’s launch, players will be receiving three consecutive weeks of rewards:

  • February 8 – 15: Octane & three Thematic Packs
  • February 15 – 22: Wattson & three Thematic Packs
  • February 22 – March 1: Valkyrie, three Thematic Packs, & one Legendary Pack

If you already own these Legends, players will still get the Thematic Packs for them, which are essentially Apex Packs that guarantee items for that specific Legend.


As more news is released, we’ll be updating this article so make sure you stay tuned.
