Tips and tricks for improving at playing this stealth-focused Legend.
Our Apex Legends Wraith guide contains tips and strategy advice for using each ability to maximum potential.
If you prefer to take a more stealth-orientated approach to combat, then you might want to check out Apex Legends’ Wraith. This slippery figure specialises in vanishing into the shadows, and even warping space in order to conjure up portals that players can travel through.
Although a lot of fun to play, it’s safe to say that Wraith is probably not the best character for new players to jump into. Advanced knowledge of the map and a deep understanding of good team play is absolutely essential if you want to make a big difference with this character.
We can help you get a little further with this Legend though. In our Wraith guide we’ve put together an overview of all the abilities involved in playing the hero, along with some strategy tips to make sure you’re using them properly.
We plan to keep this guide updated over time so it becomes the ultimate resource for Wraith players. If you’ve any tips of your own, sign up and let us know in the comments so we can include them in the next update.

Passive – Voices from the Void
Wraith’s passive ability is called Voices from the Void. When she is close by to enemies, voices will begin talking in order to indicate the presence of nearby danger.
Unlike Bloodhound’s alert ability though, only Wraith receives this information and so you’ll need to communicate with your team if you want to alert them to the danger that’s nearby.
There aren’t really any tips to provide for this ability, although it goes without saying you need to listen out carefully for these warning messages, and playing with headphones might provide a bit of an advantage as well.
Tactical – Into the Void
When Into the Void is activated, Wraith turns completely invisible and moves at increased speed through the environment.
Keep in mind that as long as this ability is active you won’t be able to see other players, and so you need to be aware of your environment before you start racing around the map completely blind.
It is, however, excellent for dropping into combat unexpectedly, and gaining the upper hand when it comes to engagement. Just hope you don’t run into a recently assembled ambush, and remember that your targets may have moved since initiating the ability.
You can also use it as an emergency escape. If you’re struggling in a firefight and sense you’re about to take lethal damage, you can pop this ability and get out of Dodge. Again, just be aware that you can’t see other players, and you may be jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire…
We’d also recommend using this ability if you’re caught in the circle. It’ll provide brief respite from damage and it could offer just enough protection to get you across the line and into safety without going down.
Ultimate – Dimensional Rift
Dimensional Rift is Wraith’s Ultimate ability, and it allows you to manipulate space by placing two portals on the ground. Walk through one and you pass out of the other, allowing you to retreat to safety.
– You can also use it to bait enemy players into chasing you through, where your teammates may be waiting if you’ve set up the trap accordingly.
– It’s also advisable to make use of the Dimensional Rift before reviving teammates. Having been revived, they can jump straight through the portal and travel to a position of safety further away from the initial fight.
– We’ve found Dimensional Rift as a useful tool to help teammates close the distance. Say an ally is healing or recharging their shields, but you and another teammate are running towards an engagement in the distance. Drop a rift between these two positions and once your ally has healed up they can get back into the fight much faster.
That’s the end of our very brief introductory guide to playing Wraith in Apex Legends. If you’ve any tips of your own, let us know in the comments and we’ll include them – with credit – in the next update.
We’ll also be fleshing this guide out more as we gain greater experience with the character ourselves.
