Pylons Need To Be Manually Connected
Wattson's Pylons must be manually connected in order for them to generate the electric fence. Make sure to plan out the route of your fence for maximum defense!

Wattson - Tips
Stick Close To Your Team
Wattson shines the brightest when she is sticking close to her team. Her abilities are most effective when slowed enemies are within the range of teammates, or when the pylon shields all teammates from incoming ordnance.
Aim To Fully Charge Abilities
Actively seek out Ultimate Accelerants so that you can immediately charge your ultimate. You should also aim to stick close to your Interception Pylon to charge up your electric fence. This will keep you ready for multiple fights.

The Static Defender
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.
