Apex Legends recently added a lot of new content to the game to accompany the launch of Season 7, including the gravity-defying new Legend Horizon and a fresh map in the airborne city of Olympus. While Olympus is certainly focused on verticality, players have figured out a new way to take advantage of the map’s exclusive vehicles in the form of a glitch that launches them across the map.
To be clear, this glitch seems to have dubious tactical value, since you have relatively little control of the Trident’s direction and arc, and it’s likely to shunt you off the map or out of the circle. Still, that hasn’t stopped some players from making interesting plays using the glitch, particularly this crew who managed to launch themselves down one of the map’s towers.
To perform the glitch, a player must place one of Octane’s jump pads inside or right next to a respawn beacon or open supply bin. If you trampoline your Trident on that jump pad, there’s a chance you’ll eventually launch into the air with the greatest of ease. Developers at Respawn have already replied to some of the more outlandish examples of the glitch, though it’s not clear if they plan to “fix” it anytime soon.
Apex Legends recently received a major overhaul to its Season 7 battle pass challenges after fans complained that the flow of content was too stingy. Next month will see the return of the Holo-Day Bash Event, which will allow players a second chance at the winter-themed character skins from last year, though there are new skins for Legends like Revenant and Loba.
