Apex Legends Pathfinder and Revenant Buffs against Caustic's gas were discovered by a Reddit user.

Each Legend has a special ability that is designed to severely wound opponents. One of the strongest special abilities in Apex Legends is Caustic's Nox Gas. The gas blinds opponents while simultaneously lowering their health slowly.

Now, a Reddit user called BloonH8TR has discovered that certain Legends have a better resistance against Caustic's Nox Gas than others. This buff will be very helpful, as surviving Caustic's gas is nearly impossible for most Legends.

BloonH8TR and a few of his friends decided to test how Caustic's Nox Gas affects different Legends. They had Pathfinder and Bloodhound stand in the gas, waiting to see which character would die first.

Once the gas is deployed, Pathfinder took an inital three points of damage, while Bloodhound took four. By the end of the gas, Pathfinder was taking seven points of damage every second, with Bloodhound taking 10.

In the post, BloonH8TR also stated that Revenant has an enhanced resistance to the Nox Gas, but did not provide video evidence.

Under the video, many commenters were pointing out that the two characters with the buff are robots. It is possible that because of their metallic skin, the gas doesn't hurt them as much as it hurts other characters.

Whether this is an intentional advantage of playing with robots or a simple bug is currently unknown. Devs at Respawn Entertainment have not made any comment though, leading players to believe that the buff is purposeful.

Knowing about the buff will actually have a huge impact on the popularity of both Pathfinder and Revenant. Many matches come down to a well-timed special ability attack, so any extra defense is extremely important.
