Wraith Lore

WRAITH APEX LEGENDS

“Wraith” is a codename given to her, Subject 61137 is a whirlwind fighter, she can execute deadly attacks by manipulating spacetime and open rifts in the fabric of reality. Years back, she woke up in an IMC Detention Facility for the Mentally Ill without any memory of who she was before. She also was listening to voices inside her head that would keep her awake for days on end, driving her almost insane.

She was in the facility one day when a portal opened before she was to be sedated. A person wearing a purple helmet came out, scaring the facility staff away. The person berated her for not fighting back and revealed herself to Wraith.

It was her from another dimension, She was on a quest for revenge on the people who experimented on her. With the Voidwaker’s help, she learned to trust the voices and was given a device to harness the power of the void properly.

Using a portal to the Voidwalker’s dimension enabled her to escape her facility, arriving in Kings Canyon which was still under construction for the Apex Games. Determined to uncover her true identity, Wraith began a quest to find out more about the experiments and herself.

Many of the old research facilities, however, are buried beneath the heavily guarded arenas used for the Apex Games. She now returns to where she arrived in this world and joined the competition, and with every match, she gets closer to the truth.

  • You will enter the void at the current speed you are running at and speed up very slowly. Try to get a running start or at the very least avoid crouching to gain the most possible mobility.

How to Use Into The Void

This ability allows you to become invincible for a brief moment, enemies can’t hit you but you leave a trail behind you so they can easily track you and pre-fire before you get out of it.

The best way to use it is to escape from near death situations and most importantly use it inside buildings, because it has corners and tight spaces which give you a better advantage at staying alive after phasing.

In open spaces a good way to use it is if there are a lot of obstacles that block enemy vision from shooting at you directly or abilities from legends like Gibraltar’s Bombardment, Caustic Gas or Bangalore’s Smoke and Ultimate to name a few.

How to use Voices From The Void

Voices From The Void is a simple yet extremely useful passive, you can be in open spaces and still be aware when an enemies are having you in their sights, wraith can create perfect opportunities for her team to counter ambush enemy squads by simply utilizing this passive and her tactical to bring the enemies where her squad wants.

Her passive can also warn her of nearby traps which is another important feature and as with every warning a prompt comes up on the screen so she can also warn her team.

Ultimate Ability – Dimensional Rift

Dimensional Rift Ultimate
Dimensional_Rift Charge Time 150 seconds
Description Link two locations
with portals for 60 seconds
allowing anyone to use them.
Information
  • Wraith places one end of a portal where she activates the ability, then runs to another location and places the other end. Players can then pass through the portal to take that same path through the void at 5x the speed they would otherwise. It can be used in either direction.
  • Wraith can run roughly 100 meters before placing the other end of the portal. The ‘timer’ does not count down while standing still.
  • While running to place the other end, Wraith cannot use any weapons, items, or map features, but she does receive a 25% speed bonus and can use Into the Void.
  • Players taking the portal are invulnerable and leave a faint blue trail, much like Wraith while using Into the Void.
  • Portals will disappear after four seconds if both ends are outside the ring.
  • As of 23/July/2020 The distance to place the other end of the portal has been decreased by 25%.
Interaction
  • The speed bonus while placing the portals does not stack with Into the Void’s speed bonus.
  • Players are the only things able to pass through portals. No projectiles, objects, Crypto drones, or Mirage decoys can use them.
  • Wattson’s Perimeter Security fences can be built intersecting the portal, since it is intangible.
Advanced
  • This ability is best used to help your squad escape when backed into a corner.
  • Portal can be used to help downed teammates to quickly travel or to bait enemies if done correctly.
  • You can use your abilities while placing a portal.
  • The portal rift follows you, and when it is placed, it throws you out where you are facing. Make sure to face the direction you want when you place the portal.
  • Multiple players can take the portal at the same time instead of waiting for one to exit.

How to Use Dimensional Rift

This is a pretty solid Ultimate and can mostly be used to provide her and her team a means to travel between point A and point B faster, although it’s easy to use it’s hard to master because if the other side of the portal can not be seen you will never know what to expect when you reach it, and sometimes you might find enemies that will kill you immediately.

In order to use this ability as efficiently as possible Wraith must create the other end to a safe place which is going to be hard for enemies to use it afterwards because they will chase you down and possibly kill you.

Players who know how to play Wraith can also use the portal as a trap making unsuspecting enemies use it and get easy kills, so it’s always nice to have a Wattson or a Caustic that can place traps and slow enemies in Wraith’s team.

Best Weapon Loadouts for Wraith

Wingman, Apex Legends

Wraith is a very aggressive legend so she needs high damage weapons in order to dispose of her enemies quickly.

She has the smallest hitbox in the game so a what she needs is mostly close range weapons and some mid range but high DPS in general.

EVA-8 Auto /Peacekeeper & Prowler SMG /R-99

This is the most famous combo for Wraith and basically R-99 and Peacekeeper is the most picked of all the loadouts we have here in our guide.

The Peacekeeper is perfect for close combat situations and the“Precision Choke” Hop up makes it perfect for a little bit longer range, the EVA-8 Auto on the other hand is better for approaching enemies rather than the Peacekeeper’s in your face style.

The EVA-8 Auto can equip a “Double Tap” Hop up to double the output damage so be sure when you have this shotgun to carry a little bit more shotgun ammo since it drains it really fast especially in the higherShotgun BoltShotgun Bolt levels.

The Prowler and the R-99 are Wraith’s bread and butter and while the R-99 has a faster rate of fire the Prowler deals more DPS in both it’s burst fire and auto mode, in order to unlock the Prowler’s auto firing mode you have to find a“Select fire” Hop up and it’s best for both weapons to get either anExtended Light Magazine or an Extended Heavy Magazine.

Since the Peacekeeper has entered the Care Package rotation and is now a Golden weapon you can switch it up with Mastiff Shotgun  It’s a fast semi-auto weapon that although it’s underpowered now it can still rival the Peacekeeper and it has no leg damage reduction.

R-99,the Prowler and both shotguns can take a1x Digital Threat 1x HCOG Classic or a 1x Holo, but it’s best to prioritize the Digital Threat on the SMGs

To perfectly utilize this combo first you have to initiate with your SMGs and then go near for the kill with the shotguns.

Wingman& R-301 Carbine / Hemlok Burst AR

The Wingman is another great weapon for Wraith which can be used for mid and close range, while the R-301 and the Hemlok can be used for longer ranges they can also be used for closer combat.

The R-301 can equip an“Anvil Receiver” Hop up that can deal devastating damage from long ranges but while the Hemlok lacks in that aspect it also deals good damage in its Single fire mode although it is better in closer range because its three burst fire shots can knock an enemy in seconds.

It is recommended to use either a2x HCOG Bruiser, a1x-2x Variable Holo for the R-301 and Hemlok and while the Wingman can take a1x Digital Threat most players prefer a1x_HCOG_Classic.

When you go with Wingman and Hemlok you should prioritize theExtended Heavy Magazine for the Wingman.

The “Anvil Receiver” has been removed from the loot pool for Season 5.

For Season 5 theSkullpiercer Rifling“Skullpiercer Rifling” Hop up has returned in to the loot pool and deals 2x to 2.25x Headshot Damage.

P2020 /Mozambique Shotgun & Sentinel

Now this is a combo for some serious plays, the P2020 and the Mozambique can equip the“Hammerpoint” Hop up which deals more damage to unshielded opponents, the Sentinel on the other hand might be a sniper rifle but it’s best to use it mid to close range because if you use twoShield Cells to charge it up it can destroy the enemy shield with only one shot so it’s best to use a2x HCOG Bruiser or a 3x HCOG Ranger.

For the P2020 and the Mozambique we recommend you equip them with a1x Digital Threat the moment you find it but in other cases the P2020 can equip a1x HCOG Classic or a2x HCOG Bruiser better and the Mozambique can better equip a1x Holo, combine it with a high level Shotgun Bolt Shotgun Bolt and it will be so deadly that your opponents won’t even know what hit them.

This is a loadout that is unforgiving for players who don’t have good aim so be sure you know how to place your shots when playing with this combo.

How to Play Wraith

wraith apex legends
Wraith, Apex Legends

Since Wraith’s main purpose is to go in an out of fights quickly you must to have a loadout that allows her to deal high damage and knock her enemies really fast.

While Wraith might be an assault legend her teammates can also benefit from having her in their squad because she can open portals and alert them when enemies or traps are nearby.

When in fights Wraith must be on the move constantly and go in close and personal with her opponents, in order to be as effective as you can you must at least knock one person from the enemy team and phase out so your squad can push and help you finish of the rest of the team.

The other good thing with Wraith is her portals because once the fight is over there’s a high chance to get third partied so if your squad is smart enough one will keep a lookout so you can loot efficiently and be prepared for the worst, because if that happens you have to get out of there fast and that would be a good time to use her Ultimate.

Another way to use her Ultimate is when you realize that the fight isn’t going in your favor and you have to get out of there, you have to use the portal and get you and your team out safely but beware, you must make sure that the area you will deploy your second portal will be safe so your team can heal and maybe get back in the fight again.
