Apex Legends’ player finds an unseen animation while cruising through Olympus!

Respawn Entertainment has added an exclusive animation to each of its character legends to enhance its feel. However, it is hard to spot these things as players tend to miss out on them. After all, players have their primary focus on much more important things as compared to smaller ones, like character animations.

But today, we have Reddit user ‘ExtensionHall5562’, who, with his eagle-eyed vision, has found a new character animation for Wraith. ExtensionHall5562 posted a video under the Apex Legends thread, showing a ‘finger gun’ melee animation for the void queen, Wraith.

The featured video animation clocked up a few fractions of seconds where his character gave his opponent a 30 damage from a finger gun move.

Dataminers and fans have different opinions about the exclusive Wraith melee animation!

Despite the animation falling under the rare category, a bunch of data miners are not pleased with this. In fact, popular miner, KralRhindo claimed that users could perform the finger gun animation on every character in the game. He also reported its limitation to Apex’s Olympus map, where users could access it in the boxing ring.
