Apex Legends Updates: Moy Parra, the animator of Apex Legends, explained on Twitter the awkwardness in the way Wattson holds her gun and moves in the Apex Legends behind-the-scenes clip.
This is because the developers wanted the innocence of her motion-capture model to remain in the game in order to enhance her personality and background. Wattson entered the game with Season 2 and is ideal for players who prefer a defensive and support style of play.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game released in 2019. This game lets players choose a legend to play as all have different powers and have different personalities. The recent update of season 9: The Legacy Season, brought new character Valkyrie to the game alongside a new game mode.

Well, Apex Legends is something that we see can still grow big with some updates.
