Shroud Gets A Surprising Knockdown from Wattson

With the arrival of Season 2, everyone’s attention is currently focused on Apex Legends. The latest season has not only left fans excited, but even some top streamers just can’t get enough of it. One of those streamers is Shroud, who has been busy streaming Apex Legends on his channel since Season 2 arrived. And surprisingly, this top streamer managed to get a really surprising knockdown with the newest character, Wattson.

Shroud has been streaming Apex Legends on his channel to celebrate the arrival of Season 2, showing viewers the new content and what to expect from the latest release. As part of this, he has played a number of matches with the new character, Wattson, and has outlined for his viewers some of the problems the character has.

Wattson And Her Tactical Ability 

For those who don’t know, Wattson has electrical abilities, and she makes use of them to take down her opponents. She has a tactical ability named Perimeter Security that allows her to build electrical fences. Although her ability can take down some opponents if they walk through the fence after it’s placed, it can really only be effectively utilized in a few areas. The fence needs to be carefully placed in the right location to ensure opponents to walk through it.

The reason for why it works in so few areas is because the fence glows blue, and opponents can easily spot it from a distance. Not only this, but it can be destroyed easily. Either you can place it at the right strategic location, or you can simply use the fencing to hold back enemies and make them waste their bullets destroying it. However, you shouldn’t just expect to get epic eliminations with it every time. 

Shroud Gets A Knockdown from The Fence While Complaining About It

During one of his recent streams, Shroud was trying to explain all of this to his fans. He shot a fence he had placed at a random location to show how easily they are destroyed, but then learned that only enemies can destroy it. However, he still claimed that they break very quickly, as you only need to shoot them a couple of times. While Shroud was busy showing players the weaknesses of Wattson and her tactical abilities, something strange happened. He got a notification that revealed a player had just been knocked down walking through his fence.

He just couldn’t believe what had happened. Only a few seconds earlier, he’d been complaining about how the fence is easy to spot and how easily it can be destroyed. After seeing that a player was knocked down by his fence, which was placed in an open and easy-to-spot location, he was shocked and changed his tune a little. It seems Apex Legends works in mysterious ways after all. 

In any case, this was a serious coincidence, so players shouldn’t expect it to happen all the time. While playing with Wattson, they will still need to carefully pick the right location to place their fencing. Otherwise, it will be useless.
