A crafty Apex Legends player has sussed out a neat trick to give Seer's ultimate an even bigger boost.

The newest legend has the mighty useful Exhibit ultimate, which throws out a sphere of micro-drones that can reveal the enemy's movement or gunfire. It's usually pretty static though, with the drone sphere remaining wherever you've thrown it.

Redditor CartoonsAndCoffee realised that with a decent enough pitching arm, you can lob the ultimate onto one of the cargo bots in World's Edge (thanks, Dexerto (opens in new tab)). The bots follow a path around a decent chunk of the map, and with an enemy-tracking sphere on its head, the radius of Seer's ultimate ends up widening pretty dramatically.

It's a fun little trick, one that isn't exactly easy to consistently replicate to the point of being a frustrating exploit. But it's potentially another dangerous tool in Seer's kit, who's already considered to be pretty overpowered right now. Respawn has acknowledged that he's "a bit too strong at the moment," promising in a Reddit AMA to knock him down a peg in the next update (thanks, PCGamesN (opens in new tab)).

Apex Legends just kicked off its 10th season (opens in new tab), bringing ranked arenas, map changes and rare sets for Pathfinder, Lifeline, Bloodhound and Gibraltar. Our Nat's been pretty happy with some of the big changes to World's Edge this season, though she wishes they'd get rid of Fragment. (opens in new tab)

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
