Wattson Character Information
“Power is everything. You only think you have it.”
Natalie “Wattson” Paquette is a familiar face in the Apex Games, though for a different reason than most. Daughter of the Games’ lead electrical engineer, she studied his manuals to stay close to him, and discovered her calling at a young age. Though she could be completely distracted one moment and hyper-focused the next, electricity grounded her – its ordered, predictable flow made sense in a way the rest of the world didn’t.
She devoured every book she could on the subject, and eventually became such a skilled engineer that she was commissioned to build the Apex Games’ Modified Containment Ring. Unfortunately, her father died the day it was revealed, leaving her alone. At her lowest moment, a group of competitors invited her to return to the arena with them, assuring her she would always have a home. She now fights alongside her friends in the arena she helped build, destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud. Nobody knows the arena better than Wattson – anyone who underestimates her is in for a shock.

- Home World: Solace
- Tactical Ability: Perimeter Security
- Passive Ability: Spark of Genius
- Ultimate Ability: Interception Pylon
Tactical: Perimeter Security
This ability allows the player to connect nodes to create an electric fence that deals damage and slows down enemies. You’re allowed to place up to 12 nodes spread out allowing teammates to pass through, and also pinging enemies when they pass through.
Ultimate: Interception Pylon
This ability places an electrified pylon that will destroy incoming ordnance and will repair players shields. The ordnance it can defend against include attacks from grenades, bombardments, and arc stars.
In addition to the previous perks, if Wattson is near the pylon, it super charges her tactical ability and allows her to place fence nodes in faster progression.
NOTE: 3 pylons can only be placed at a time and are permanent until destroyed.
Passive: Spark of Genius
Ultimate accelerants fully charge your Ultimate ability, in addition to the previously mentioned increase in node placement when near a pylon.
