Apex Legends Season 6: Wattson Glitch Makes Electric Fences Invisible

Good luck getting around these.

Apex Legends Season 6 is here, but there have been a few bugs that Respawn has needed to squash so far.

Fresh off Rampart being able to glitch into the game's sizeable loot vaults, as well as players being able to use Sheila to fire directly outwards from Gibraltar's dome shield, a new bug focused around Wattson has been found.

Apex Legends Wattson Fence Glitch

Wattson is a defensive Legend, able to lay down a series of electrically charged fences as part of her "Perimeter Security" ability.

When players walk through it, they take damage, as well as being slowed, stunned, and pinged for Wattson's team.

Unfortunately, a new bug is making the fences entirely invisible, meaning players are walking through them without realising. 

That makes them tough to avoid, but also tough to destroy since there's nothing to aim at.

What makes it worse is that Wattson is able to link multiple fences together to block off entire areas in the late-game, meaning you could walk straight into one, then another, then another.

Reddit user u/bwlebard has a great demonstration below:

This is sure to make Wattson much more popular - at least until it's patched!

New seasons often bring a slew of bugs and exploits, but Season 6 seems to introduce a new one weekly.

We've already reported on how all knockdown shields (except for the gold variant) are essentially useless in this season. Find out why here.
