How to do Valkyrie’s portal trap in Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy
Apex Legends’ Valkyrie has more to her play than expected, as players find an alternative use for her ultimate in the form of a trap.
Apex Legends players have found an extremely amusing trap with new Legend Valkyrie in Season 9: Legacy.
Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy has seen a lot of new content come to the game. Most notably, Arenas and Valkyrie, who players are still learning the extent to which you can utilize her abilities.
It seems some players have taken it upon themselves to find out if you can combine Valkyrie’s ultimate ability, Skyward Drive, with some of the other Legends.
Players have found that they can combine Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive, which is essentially a portable redeploy balloon, along with other Legend’s abilities to maximize potential.
One great example of this is Valkyrie and Revenant. We’re sure you’ve heard of Revenant and Octane combining their ultimate abilities to essentially push a team and third-party fights without worrying about positioning or elimination.
This was considered very powerful in Season 8, as teams would use Revenants Death Totem and Octane’s Launch Pad to traverse huge distances and save time while in shadow form.
However, soon after Valkyrie’s launch, players found they could perform a similar routine with the Skyward Dive instead of the Launch Pad, which effectively took the team in shadow form across huge distances.
Apex Legends Valkyrie portal trap
One combination some players found success with is Wraith, combining her Dimensional Rift/Portal ultimate with Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive to trap unsuspecting enemies.
The trap is simple:
- Activate Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive
- Wait for Wraith to activate Dimensional Rift and join the Dive
- Valkyrie will then launch and fly over a hazardous part of the map
- While over this part of the map, Wraith will end her portal leaving anyone who takes it doomed
Although this trap is best for Olympus due to the many gaps and holes in the floating city, this can also be done off the side of any map or even into the lava in World’s Edge.
There is so much potential with this trap, as you can also pull it off without dropping enemies off the map.
Say you have a Wattson, Caustic, or Rampart set up, and you place a portal directly above where these characters have placed traps. Unsuspecting enemies will take the portal and land in a very stick situation.
That’s all for this cool Valkyrie and Wraith portal trap. For more on Apex Legends, keep it locked on Charlie INTEL, and check out our article on the average K/D ratio for Apex Legends.
