Developers could use this Redditor’s advice to balance Apex Legends

Wattson remains to be the most overlooked legend, as her defensive play style and no room for offensive capabilities have rendered her weak. In this game, movement and accurate aim tracking enable the players to dominate the duels.

Respawn has tried to bring her back into the game but no amount of tweaks ever work in her favor. Highly mobile characters, who can effortlessly jump in and out of fights have always retained a dominant position. Now, Reddit user u/ryoiscreator shared a splendid idea to buff Wattson, which could bring her back in the meta.

He suggested that the studio should double down on her capabilities to safeguard her team. She puts down defensive walls and offers additional support to her teammate by offering free shield regen with her ultimate, and this ability can also block incoming projectiles. Reddit user wants to add another passive to Wattson, which will now allow her to carry more energy shell, and batteries in the same back-pack slot.
