In Apex Legends, the players control heroes known as Legends. Every Legend has a certain role to play in the team and have access to unique abilities. Studying the skills of all heroes will allow you to utilize them better later on. The chapter below contains a description of all Legends, characters, and heroes available in Apex Legends and a set of tips that will facilitate controlling them.
Caustic is a defensive hero and isn't a part of basic characters, which means that he has to be unlocked in the shop. During combat, Caustic utilizes Nox - a poisonous gas that disorients opponents and causes damage to them. Caustic skills can be used both on offensive and defensive.
Passive ability - Nox Vision
Caustic's passive ability allows him to see opponents in Nox fumes. This is an incredibly useful ability that will allow you to eliminate your opponents quickly while they are completely defenseless inside the fumes.
Tactical ability - Nox gas trap
Caustic can deploy or throw a Nox container which can be activated using your weapon. Nox trap also activates when the enemy is found nearby. If you place all containers, you need to wait for them to replenish.
Activating the trap
The fastest and most viable way of activating a Nox trap is firing at it when the enemy is in range. All it takes is one bullet for the gas to disperse.
You can place gas traps at major locations inside the buildings, e.g. next to doors to prepare traps for the enemy. If your enemy isn't careful, he will activate the deadly trap.
Picking up traps
If you want to leave your current location and don't want to wait for the traps to replenish, simply take them with you. Simply approach a trap, and press the right button.
A Nox trap can also be useful in a moment when you need to heal an ally that has been knocked down. Disperse the gas next to an ally to create a smoke screen.
If you need to evacuate from a dangerous area, place a few containers around and activate them to create a poisonous cloud through which the enemy won't be able to see you.
Special ability - Nox grenade
Caustic throws a gas grenade and disperses a large cloud of poisonous gas. To throw the grenade to a longer distance, aim the crosshairs up.
If you are sure that the enemy is hiding in a narrow room and doesn't have anywhere to run, you can throw a poisonous grenade inside the building and limit his visibility, then run inside and eliminate the threat using Caustic's passive ability. The enemy won't be able to locate from where the shots are coming from and where is the exit.
