Apex Legends players discovered another issue with Wattson’s fences, with the powerful ability being nerfed due to the Season 12 crash.
The arrival of Apex Legends Season 12: Defiance has been heralded by many Respawn battle royale fans, especially with the introduction of the new Mad Maggie and Control LTM.
On top of major headline additions, Crypto is finally here long awaited buff as Security Professionals can now use their drone’s capabilities without having to fly it. There have been nerfs to all strong Caustic as well, though, with his gas traps now destructible once they’re activated.
The new update has also brought in some unintended nerfs though, with both Loba and Wattson having issues with their abilities quite unexpectedly, like Loba’s Black Market Boutique can no longer block the door.
In Wattson’s case, her Perimeter Security barriers are problematic, as they still stun enemies but aren’t working at full capacity.
Be an Apex Legends live stream Texas demonstrated, players can still run through an active Wattson barrier and be slowed by damage, however, their camera movement speed is no longer affected during the stun phase.
That means while they may move a bit slower due to the fence, you still aim as if nothing really happened. So you’re not really at a disadvantage in a gunfight.
Another Wattson error. When you are stunned by her, your camera speed is no longer slowed. Before you couldn’t move your camera, now you can. pic.twitter.com/9erwysnguG

As more players have joined, it’s been a pretty big hit for Wattson, who has had a lot of fence-related issues in recent seasons – although Respawn has managed to get them out.
It remains to be seen whether they are aware of the matter, but hopefully once they do, it won’t be long before Wattson returns to his full power.
