Focus of Attention is one of Seer’s most useful abilities and can easily snatch the lead from retreating enemies. Unlike Bloodhound’s scan, Focus of Attention has a narrow directional window and a slow buildup, meaning that enemies have a small opportunity to avoid it. However, if caught, enemies will have their locations tracked perfectly — even through surfaces.
Focus of Attention is at its best, however, when used to apply pressure to enemies on the backfoot. The constant use of syringes and shield cells in Apex Legends makes this tactical power a fight winner. Focus of Attention will interrupt the healing abilities of those caught, and even deals 10 points of damage.
This tactical allows Seer to serve up squads on a platter for those teammates that love an aggressive push. And if you’re sick of hearing calls that enemies are one-shot, now you’ll know. Focus of Attention reveals the status of both shields and health when enemies are within sight, meaning you can weigh up the risks of pushing, and decide who to focus on.
While range might be at the forefront of players minds, it is also important to remember that it doesn’t just stick to ground level. You can turn your focus in any direction, which is particularly helpful if enemy players are either below or above you in one of the game's many structures.
Focus of Attention doesn’t have the quickest of cooldowns, though. To ensure you don’t waste it, hold off until shots are fired or your Heart Seeker can narrow down an enemy’s potential direction. The one caveat is that it can be difficult to tell whether an enemy is behind cover or not when highlighted, so try not to waste too much ammunition on cars, walls, and rocks — they’re unlikely to shoot back any time soon.
