Part 10 of Apex Legends brought a lot of changes to the game, most notably another playable character. This free battle royale game doesn’t come out at launch in 2019 without a leader, but the team behind Titanfall 2, Respawn, definitely know what they’re doing. They’ve always been clear on the feel of an FPS game, but have included their own unique and incredibly satisfying motion mechanics to really enhance the action. It will never kill big guys like Fortnite or Battlefield, but it stands firmly against these powers.
The 18th playable character to join the roster is Obi “Seer” Edolasim, who joined the game in the Season 10 Appear event. Seer is somewhat of a good fit for a follower or re-patterned character. , but has a very different use than the other legends that can fill that role. He is just as unique and dynamic as the rest of the list, which means it will take some time to fully learn about his abilities and abilities. Seer’s strengths are just beginning to be recognized, so let’s take a look at his lore, abilities, and how best to use this style legend in combat. Apex Legends.
There was a prophecy about Seer before he was born that he would cause great suffering and pain. On the night of his birth, a large meteorite hit the moon of his home planet, Boreas, which was considered a bad omen. When everyone saw his blue eyes, he was considered cursed by everyone, save his parents who love and take care of their children. They even supported him when he entered the Arena to show off his creativity, where he became stronger.
As he proved himself in the Colosseum, Seer became known among other poor and unlucky people who especially came to watch him. At the time of joining the Apex Games, Seer was a name almost everyone knew because the kid who fought against his cursed label to become a character everyone had a difficult time in. life can be admired.
Seer is a devoted follower, and nearly all of his abilities provide him with ways to hunt down his prey and capture them before they know what has hit them. Following the well-established formula for all Legends, Seer comes with passive, tactical, and ultimate abilities.
Passive: Heart Seeker
Seer’s passive is Heart Seeker, which adds directional arrows next to your aiming grid while aiming aiming points in the direction of any enemy, as long as they’re 75 meters away from you. If you’ve set your sights on an enemy, your cross seats will turn orange to indicate you’ve got a dead target ahead. It’s the seeker part, while the heart part is in the form of hearing the enemy’s heartbeat. The closer the enemies are related to you, the louder their heartbeats will be heard.
Using both of these tools in tandem, you can very well know the location of any enemy within that 75 meter range. The arrows will point you in the right direction, and when you feel the volume of your heartbeat, you can judge how close or far they are. As a passive person, this skill is constantly available, making it one of the most valuable tools for gathering insights to share with your team.
But, given how powerful this passive is, it also makes sense. Any enemy you’re tracking like this will hear a faint humming from the drone. You’ll still have an edge over them, knowing where they are, but at least they’ll know you’re watching them and will be on high alert. You can minimize the chances of them noticing this buzz by not keeping your ADS on for too long and they may not even notice it. Also keep in mind that you can use this passive with any weapon, or even without the weapon equipped.
Tactics: Pay Attention
The Focus of Attention tactic has Seer produce a series of micro drones that generate a shockwave blast that not only detects enemies, even while hiding, but also disrupts and silences them. in 1.25 seconds. They remain visible, including the health bar, for a total of 8 seconds. However, it’s not a full 360-degree scan and only shows what’s in front of you when you activate it. The range is 75 meters and expands like a cone as it goes further out, making it possible to scan the entire structure if used at the right distance.
Focus of Attention also has a pretty short cooldown of just 30 seconds, so if a skirmish turns into a battle of attrition, you can hit it multiple times to always know where the enemy is and how much they have left. much blood. It pairs great with Heart Seeker, as you can first identify enemies that are around, figure out the direction they are in, and then use Focus of Attention to locate them on the map. Plus, if used in a fight, it’s a great way to teleport enemies and prevent them from diving and healing thanks to the disruption it causes.
Finally, we come to Seer’s ultimate ability, the Artifact. This skill allows Seer to launch a device that creates a giant dome that will track any moving enemy at least faster than crouching on foot or firing a weapon inside it. It will last for a pretty long 30 seconds before starting its 90 second cooldown, which means it will probably be used once per shootout. However, unlike the Focus of Attention which just explodes, the Ex Show is actually created from a device that enemies can destroy if found. Try and aim it somewhere far away so it doesn’t get shot and go to waste, leaving you on cooldown.
Location is key with this ability. It covers a large area, so you want to balance your options of deploying it at higher altitudes, knowing it will extend downwards, as well as in places where you think enemies will try. try to move over. Or, when used defensively, it can be used to cover flanks and escape routes. Just remember that it is not easy. Enemies inside can still crouch and hide out of range depending on their location. Like Seer’s other abilities, it works best when combined with his others to eliminate them.
Seer is not a front-line, gun-toting character Apex Legends. He’s all about ambushes – locate enemies or teammates, and hit them before they know where he is. However, because all of his abilities are better suited to medium to close range, choosing the weapon that works best in that type of gunfight will best complement his skill set. . Firearms like the Repeater 30-30, Bocek Compound Bow, and G7 Scout are great options.
While playing Seer, try to support your team with firepower and insights. Just because you know where your enemies are, doesn’t mean you should try to take them down. Of course, there are exceptions, but for the most part you want to be the leader of your team from the back. Track all your skill cooldown timers and use them wisely so your team can coordinate and attack easily. If you go too deep, none of Seer’s abilities can rescue you, so you need to be more cautious with this character.
One legend that Seer players need to keep in mind is Mirage. Their decoys can really hinder your reading of the situation as they will trigger your Exhibits. The only way to tell from afar that they’re fake is the fact that they don’t generate a heartbeat when you use Heart Seeker. Revenant is another potential problem for Seer players because of their Death Totem, as well as its ability to silence you and essentially render you useless for a while.
A few other Heart Seeker-related tricks that are hard to learn in the heat of battle involve heart rate. If there are multiple enemies in range, this will be the case more often than not in a squad based game the heartbeat you hear will be for the nearest target only. In addition to volume, which tells you their distance, the speed of their heart rate indicates how much health they have left, with faster beats meaning lower health. Use this to help your team know when it’s time to rush.
Finally, Seer greatly benefits from scanning survey signals. The more map knowledge you have, the more you can focus your attention and ability to actually take down enemies. The more you know, the easier it is for your team to execute smart ambushes, as well as tactical retreats.
