Twitch streamer jay_kinny showcased this trick in a clip that was shared in the Apex Legends subreddit. Players can interrupt Wattson’s electric fence by blocking its link to a node, and this can be used to your advantage.

The clip shows the streamer placing a Perimeter Security pylon outside of the building they retreated to and then connected it to another inside. They then blocked the nodes so that the fence was hidden.

One unlucky opponent turned around the corner and Wattson sidestepped to activate the Perimeter Security. This led to the enemy being stunned and killed before the same thing happened to another foe.

This tactic can help you entrap multiple opponents before taking them out and serves as a great way for you to buy yourself the opportunity to heal without enemies killing you before you’re done.

Apex Legends players often experiment with the different characters and this lets them discover clever new tricks like this, as well as the Ash and Valkyrie combo that lets you fly around the map.
