Caustic Town Takeover
Over the past few days, Respawn Entertainment has implemented teasers hinting towards the new event and Caustic town takeover in-game. A few days back, When players were loading into Kings Canyon, Caustic was seen alongside a large yellow canister, looking particularly suspicious. As players aren’t used to seeing any Legends during the load time before a game, players went looking around the location he is seen, Crash Site, finding an audio log detailing Caustic’s plans to refine and mould the huge amount of toxins caused by the space ship explosion seen in the Season 8 cinematic trailer.
Since finding this, players have found 2 other audio logs, one just outside of Containment, in the yellow buildings next to the vault, and one above Water Treatment in the same yellow style building next to the water. In the second audio log, Caustic implies testing his plans on ‘human subjects’, in other words, the players. In the third log, Caustic talks about manipulating those behind the Apex Games to allow him to deal with the toxic water in order to execute his seemingly evil plan. It seems in the next event; Caustic will be fulfilling the role of Apex Legends’ villain, with these audio logs hinting towards a possible town takeover in Water Treatment in the south of the map.
Along with these in-game teasers, a Target listing also suggests that the new Apex Legends event will be named ‘Chaos Theory’, further linking the event to the science-themed Legend, Caustic.
