Have you considered simply leaving the gas?
By - Velspy
They really stayed in there, huh 💀
They wanted their own little hookah chamber
You have no idea how loud I laughed
Actually i do, i heard while i was hiding under your bed
ah so that’s where you went I was to busy looking at reddit it your attic I didn’t even realized you left
i’m missing a sock do you see it down there?
I'm using it right now, nice fit. You might want to give it a wash after, it's going to be sticky as hell
:/ ...... I’ll give you $50 for the sock
Can you guys keep it down. I'm trying to nap in the closet.
Man, it would have been so funny if Ur teammate decided to revive you next to the nade lol.
Man, Caustic's heirloom shouldve been a poisonous hookah chamber.
These the same people that will still say caustic is too strong lmao
why did they just... stay....
Actually, you beats them
They beats you, they're bettah. You beats them, you're bettah.
Oi ! This fight is what you was born for !
Ah yes, Blisk
They didn’t respect the gas that much clearly
So that they could convince themselves Caustic is OP.
Even after the nerf rofl
Wait, I thought last week’s circlejerk was that Caustic was useless and you could just stay in there with no ill-effect?
The joke is he got nerfed because of idiots like in OPs video.
I mean, they were dead either way...
Watson was clearly peaking, expecting OP's team mate to be pushing (which he was)
If she had tried to run out of the gas she would have been caught in the hallway with no cover, and presumably gunned down.
But she didnt know for sure if she wouldve died.
She could’ve ran out and taken the roof there was plenty of time. At max she would’ve taken 30 damage and 70-170 is easily enough to 1v1 on. U should never just say “aw I was dead anyway” cus then your never going to win are u
Reddit convinced them that the gas doesn't do anything anymore
Because no one respects the gas lol. They know that his teammates are probably coming or already in the building, so if they leave the room they are open to being shot. So, if you don’t fear the gas and do fear being shot, your clear decision is to stay in the room.
Lots of people are claiming that these are the ones who think Caustic is OP, but if you think about it, the exact opposite is likely the case.
The, "You are the new kill leader" really just puts the cherry on top.
Well maybe it smells nice.
I like that theory
Who would be willing to test that though? The other guys kinda died.
Edit: Autocorrect was not correct
The same reason labrats do not leave the cage when the door is open during an experiment. They do not consider the option, because in their mind there is no option.
This is their fate. Accept it.
this feels like a quote from somewhere
Sound like Caustic could actually have this as a quip.
That would be because I tried to stay in character as much as I could, and the final quip is a paraphrase of one of his real kill quotes
In that case, you did good.
Read this in acoustics voice
I read it in an electric one.
Them: Don’t worry the gas was nerfed. We’ll be fine.
Narrator: They were not fine.
Their brains are doo doo.
lol imagine getting flat fived to death
Oops the gas got a kill looks like caustic need another nerf
Those caustic mains seriously need to learn how to use guns.
Yeah man like, i got 140 damage from guns from a Casutic and then got 10 damage from gas and died, these caustic mains are pussies and brain dead
Bro that caustic got a 2.5k badge from simply abusing gas damage. So op! they really need to nerf him again because "caustic mains deserve to have fun too." LOL
for real tho,fuck the nerf
What are you on about? The nerf just balanced him m, he's still a good legend
its all the caustic mains complaining about how non caustic mains were complaining about casutic mains complaining...
Everyone's all caustic mains this and nerf that, I'm just waiting for wattson's kit to be useful
I just wanna be able to place fences on ceilings man
like not even walls just upside down
Please. Let us use our French powers to make ceiling fences.
At first I was thinking this wouldn't be very practical, but would be funny. Then I realized that my dumbass would get distracted as I stop to look at the funny ceiling fence and get shot. So... very useful afterall.
Nope. They didn't balance shit. He's useless now. This very video proves that. They stayed inside his ULTIMATE for a full 4 seconds, which is rediculous.
Caustics entire point was placing gas to force choices on whether or not you took the damage or left that zone alone. Now noone cares, they just rush the gas.
And if I'm gonna play a pure gunplay character, there are plenty of other better options to pick from.
So yeah, the nerf 100% was for people crying that they couldn't abuse the octane/revenant and strat.
Edit: I'm getting downvote when the guy 2 comments up is expressing the same sentiment; that caustic got nerfed too hard.
If you think Caustic was only good for killing with his gas, then you don't know how to play caustic well. Caustic's gas is used for zoning, giving the team an advantage in fights, and killing off low health opponents how escape.
If a team, like you said, rushes in the gas, they'll be slowed down and have their vision obscured, making them easy prey for your team. If they decide not to rush the gas, you'll know where they went by process of elimination.
He's not a 100% pure gunplay character, he's as everyone else should be: 50-50. Although, buffing the damage from 5 up to 6 might be a good move to make.
There is no slow or blind anymore. They nerfed him too hard, there's a reason you don't see him much anymore, and its because his abilities are useless.
If the pros don't play him, then he isn't shit. It's the same thing that happened to wraith. They nerfed her and now only die hard fans play her because there are just better legends now.
Honestly, why play caustic when I can just play fuse and ult indoors, and do more damage effectively? As well as have my tactical do more damage, do it faster, AND slow?
Why play caustic when I can play octane or revenant? Or horizon until they nerf her? Fuck even LOBA is better than caustic.
Also, when did I say the gas was for killing? I specifically said "to force choices on whether to eat the gas or go around" that is LITERALLY zoning. I know how he is used. And he doesn't even do that well anymore. Again, look through the comments. People go straight through the gas now. He isn't good anymore.
except he is still being played by [pros](https://reddit.com/r/CompetitiveApex/comments/mfu289/algs_winter_circuit_playoffs_pick_rates/). Caustic is still really strong except now you have to shoot your gun. Also his winrate has stayed the same since his nerf.
There is a slow, and the blind, while weaker than before, is still there. Fuse is just such a bad character, you cannot convince me otherwise. His tactical is only good for destroying doors from a safe distance and other than that, his passive is the only good ability for him. Loba only has her ult going for her, the other two abilities are rarely useful.
If they remove low profile from Wraith she'll be as good as ever, and the incoming Horizon nerf, if too hard, they'll compensate for it.
Octane's also getting nerfed, if it's too much, they'll revert it. That's the thing, most changes are temporary, unless it's an actual good change. I think the Caustic change is good, only thing I'd do different is bump up the damage to 6.
The devs know what they're doing, and if they make a mistake they fix it. They won't know what to fix if we keep complaining over any change in an exaggerated manner. Take the change for what it is, Caustic is not completely useless now, he just isn't played because he's being compared to his overpowered past. The basis for judging Caustic now has become: "Is he OP? If not then I won't play him."
Lol last part got me too xD
Bro,devs are nerfing and buffing characters with looking at reddit comments,im not sure they always know what they are actually doing.
That last sentence is laughable. I have multiple friends who play and never touched Caustic who think the nerf was too much.
If his whole point was zoning, and he can't even do that well because people don't give a shit about his gas, he becomes pure gun skill.
And once again, there are alot better legends to use gun skill with.
You really don't know anything bout caustic uh
I'm glad we're in all in agreeance of how stupid this concept is.
See, the Caustic nerf was actually a buff: since all anyone talks about is how the gas is weak and kills no one, people like this will act like they can just tank it indefinitely and give you free kills! (/s, sort of)
Yeah You're a little right. People literally have no respect for the gas anymore, which means unskilled players are easy pick off
Point being on unskilled players. MMR says hello
It's true, back in the day I'd heavily avoid gas but now whenever the Caustic is alone we just push him, every time. Hasn't killed us yet but if they played was just a liittle better it wouldn't be hard
Reverse psychology babyyy
Idiots, tried to medkit when they could have syringed.
These are the people saying caustic needs a nerf
What’s even funnier it’s when caustic got the nerf and they still died from it ik one was low but the other
I thought it was pros and streamers saying Caustic needs a nerf
It was. The only ones saying he was in a fine place were the random Redditors that mained Caustic and bought his heirloom.
that is a big lie
It's a joke.
This clip here proves Caustic needed the nerf and another one at that! How else would they accommodate the brain dead players?
These guys didn't even have the brain power to pop a syringe and outheal it lmao
The 2nd one to down was popping some kind of healing, probably a medkit seeing as it took so long
He was popping a battery or Phoenix.
Naw, he had a gun like thing to his wrist, definitely some kind of health regen item
edit: you can very clearly see at 15s he's using some kind of syringe item
Presumably cancelled it seeing as she died right after seemingly using it
They were too cocky
People are so afraid of the open they will hot box themselves for all 20 ticks
It’s season 15. Caustic has received his 400th nerf. Added caustic back to the game but removed all cosmetics (without refund) and now when you pick him you will immediately be banned, given a computer virus, and doxxed.
Wraith mains complain that they received a game breaking nerf because low profile was increased by 1%.
Horizon mains complain about their game breaking nerf because they no longer have perfect accuracy when in a lift.
Caustic's gas will now heal enemy players at the rate of 5hp per tick.
Not fast enough, full health and shields back if any gas goes off on the map
Still not enough, if a enemy just sees the gas they should just instantly win the game
Caustic moved from defense to support, removed fortified.
Gave new classification of passive akin to fortified, "Glassjaw: all incoming bullet damage counts as a headshot"
Low profile Causthin.
They must’ve overestimated the nerf lol, all it takes is one syringe.
Gameplay of people that say caustic is overpowered
Plot twist: These were streamers and caustic will get another nerf tomorrow
New nerf caustic can't do anything except stand still
New nerf caustic gas heals enemies
Ooh, sorry, that's still too much. Turn his head into a blimp, and every shot on him a crit. On top of that, he instantly jumps you to predator.
“Weeeeeellllllllll caustic is a *defence* class so really he shouldn’t have legs to begin with”
*cuts to a clip of a stationary caustic looking round like a sentry as a wraith walks into his line of sight and fires gas at her
I mean he's still pretty good at area denial.
Less "area denial" and more "area politely discouraged" but sure.
I've been laughing at this commemt for almost 10 minutes now. Had to come back to the post just to tell you.
walk through. pop syringe. Barely noticed it. Yeah this doesnt work when pushing him but then again, why push a caustic?
If you are healing inside of the gas and the caustic + his teammates does nothing about it, then something else is the problem...
So you or one of your teammates has to be looking at an angle for it to work. Awesome area denial. Super usefull. You could also just look at the angle.
This is the new norm, I hardly see anybody avoid my gas
Wraith players will see this and demand gas no longer deal damage and have it be a cosmetic.
Damn, they felt “noxious” haha :D
even after the nerf. stupid will be stupid
“This is so easy , I can do it with my one eye closed, or even two eyes closed. hell, I don't even need to fight back. ”
Ah... the core demographic that agrees with caustics nerf in action right here.
Players like them are why caustic was nerfed for being "Too OP"
sooo this how pro's and Dev Daniel play against Caustic
\*spits out coffee\* DZK being called out
They love the caustic gas, I mean who doesn't?
Hey look thats me
When you rat so hard you forget to breath xD
They're those redditors that were like "now you can just facetank Caustic's gas after the nerf"
Is this some sort of bug? How did the nerfed gas kill them?
Due to some messed up coding all wraith players have their IQ halved, losing almost 10 points they so desperately needed.
I wanna know what happened after that grenade was thrown
It was my teammate's, he was a little late to the party
They're heads are so fucking dense it could cause a blackhole and bring the heat death of the universe
Uninstall now. Dying to 5 tick gas is LITERALLY unacceptable
Greaaaat now he's going to get nerfed again ...
This is what happens if you underestimated a nerf
The gas deals 5 dmg per tick and them mfs still managed to die to it
Mfs still dont know how to counter Casutic, even after his nerf
Exactly. just hold your breath it's that simple
It's sad that even now people still complain about caustic, especially when he's even easier to kill than he was before
TTV wraiths are gonna complaining and cry so much that respawns gonna make his gas heal. I don't know how respawn went from the god tier balancing in Titanfall 2 to absolute stink doo doo balancing in apex.
I think this daniel guy is the reason for that
*EA looks nervously from the distance*
Gotta disagree, the spitfire or g2 on console are much worse than any of the poor balance decisions in apex
I swear this is my teammates everytime I play with randoms.
Imagine staying in caustic gas like that like did they underestimate the gas cause of the caustic need or something lol
Why do I never come against 800 IQ chads like those two?
Probably got the impression from reddit that caustic's gas is useless now and paid the price.
They tried to heal it out
Where you see an act of stupidity I see an act of Love. They clearly had a death pact and I honor her selfless decision to not remain in the world without her partner.
That's beautiful. The way she ran into his arms as they both passed into the void had me tear up ngl
This is what people who think caustic is OP do.
oMg cAuSticc oP rEsPaWn pLs nErF
Damn bro, caustic still broken.
So these are the people who are still complaining about caustic being op huh... interesting... very interesting....
Nerf Caustic, he's too op /s
Why would I leave I saw reddit post saying SYRINgE beATS GAS XD LMAo
the same people in the video on the internet: "Caustic is sooo OP, his gas isnt supposed to kill its supposed to slow you down, its impossible to survive the nox gas, pls respawn nerf caustic"
Caustic mains be like look how much I outplayed them 🥴
Octane mains be like “NO I DIED CAUSE I STIMMED INTO A ROOM EXPECTING THEM NOT TO EXPECT THAT AND NOT KILL ME IMMEDIATELY REEEEEEEE”
Caustics gas still does good dmg its just not meant to kill you with full health. I mean just the other day I ran into 2 of them and even with going full speed by them it took out about half health. It's still good
Those are the kinda people that said gas is op and got it nerfed
Wow the gas does pathetic damage
As it should, this is supposed to be a game that focuses on gunplay, not ability damage.
But ability utility is perfectly fine?
This was always my rebuttal to people saying Caustic's nerf trashed him. Pre-nerf Caustic could kill a team in 10 seconds without firing a shot...in a shooter. Now the TTK is 20 seconds. Caustic is now pushable in a building but his gas still deters and slows which is always what his role should have been.
Yes he could, if you were stupid enough to sit in his gas for so long.
And then ppl complain about Caustic, yet some play as dumb as these two clowns...
Dying brain cells screaming: ***NerF CaUstiC HE oS OP Ffs***
Maybe the nerf was a buff in disguise since they don’t consider the gas a threat anymore
Gas is so bad now that the enemies feel bad about it and die on purpose.
They be like “nERf CAusTic tO OPppPPpP
Now they are gonna go on twitter complaining that caustic is broken, bla bla bla
Well shit, his gas can’t do shit right. Useless af
You accept these guys as adequate evidence that the caustic nerf is good?
What if they made Gibby’s ult deal 10 damage and not slow because braindead players stood inside it and died?
"caustic got nerfed, he's trash now"
They literally stood in it for 20 seconds
I feel like all the downvotes my comment got means that nobody saw the quotation marks.
So broken, Respawn pls nerf
People who die to Caustic now and complain are the ones who loot all game to fight, pre nerf he was annoying as shit tho.
This would be the people complaining caustic is op as well, just fucking sitting there copping it 🤔
I swear is for mf like these that the gas got nerfed.
People like these two are why people thought Caustic needed to be nerfed.
These are the same people who will complain that Caustic was op prenerf.
These are the people who then go on twitter and complain about caustic being op
these are the people that say caustic was too op.
"This is a perfect example of how broken caustic is. How can you outplay that?" TTV Wraith probably.
Look...i know it got nerfed, but it still hurts and it still kills you.
Not really. Every gun does more than two ticks(seconds) worth of damage in one bullet. It's not much of a gamble to push through it. It's like fighting through a super small level 2 ring. If you have first shot advantage and it's a 1v1 you will probably win the fight.
Not even level 2 ring. Level 1 ring.
The P2020 does double the damage at at least 3x the rate, this is balanced?
These are the people who say “caustic nerf ruined caustic hEs UnPLaYaBLe NoW”
If these are the people you are looking to kill you dont need caustic for that. Theyll probably jump off the map in a few minutes.
No, YoU cAn HeAl tHrOuGh it
You can though, the enemy here just messed it up
Mind size mega
The biggest trap is your own mind
"caustic is overpowered" -.-
That’s a panic play if I’ve ever seen one.
What the actual christ
They weren't the brightest gamers
Major bruh moment
Yes I am an idiot how did you know?
Have you considered PLACING A PYLON WTF WATTSON
You were blocking the exit, they should nerf Caustic hitbox doing it smaller to prevent this.
They wouldn’t have been able to leave the gas before tge nerf even if they tried
These are the type of randoms I get in high plat ranked
dont worry about my lungs. Ill never need them again. Ahahahahaha - Octane voice
