Apex Legends players have encountered a new bug related to Wattson's Pylon. The game has suffered from exploits, bugs, and glitches in the past, such as the frustrating invisibility glitch introduced during Season 8. On March 12, Respawn Entertainment listed a total of 30 bugs that they had come across in the game.
Respawn added Wattson to the Apex Legends roster in Season 2. She is a Legend who excels with her defensive abilities, Perimeter Security, Spark of Genius, Low Profile, and Interception Pylon. The latest bug discovered by players affects her Pylon ability and will make dealing with Horizon a nearly insurmountable task.
Apex Legends Players Discover Bug With Wattson's Pylon
Reddit user, "mrsirgo", uploaded a clip to the website which showcases the bug related to Wattson's Pylon and Horizon's abilities. What players have found is that Horizon's Gravity Lift ability and Black Hole ultimate are currently not being countered by Interception Pylon, which serves to negate a variety of items and abilities in Apex Legends.
While most players assume that the recent discovery surrounding Wattson and Horizon is a bug, there is a possibility that it could have been a "secret" nerf. Respawn Entertainment has yet to address the issue, but in due time, they should release more details. In the meantime, Apex Legends players will most likely stay away from locking in Wattson.
