New Caustic Tip Makes Traps Even Deadlier
By Joe Melillo
Apex Legends' Caustic is a fan favorite and one of the faces--or masks--of the game. His gas traps can create some excellent zone control and can be used in new and creative ways to maximize their effectiveness. In a Reddit clip by u/EverecOlgierd, a new technique using Caustic's traps is demonstrated. Check out the video below to see how players are using doors to mask Caustic's traps!
The placement of this trap is a true genius. Enemies will be completely unaware of the presence of this trap. As seen in the clip, the trap will stick to the top of doors and activate when any unsuspecting enemy walks through. They will instantly be weakened by the gas and fairly easy to finish off with a gun.
The other intelligent part of this trap placement is that it can be used as recon info. If you enter a building, you can place your trap on top of a doorway and know that if the trap has triggered, an enemy is nearby. You can effectively reduce the amount of angles you need to keep your eyes on since you will be alerted if an enemy enters from that direction. This new strategy is a great way to maximize Caustic's kit and is something that any player can add to their game to improve.
