Annoying Apex Legends bug is trapping players on supply ships

The supply ships found on Apex Legends’ King’s Canyon map have always been dangerous and a stairwell bug that cages players within is the latest nightmarish discovery.

Since Apex Legends’ inception in February 2019, the Supply Ships found on King’s Canyon have presented logistical difficulties. Not only are these mobile hotspots popular combat locations given the quality of the loot they hold, but they are similarly known for having a series of bugs and glitches.

These issues disappeared on the World’s Edge map but returned for Season 5: Fortune’s Favor, and while the map may have received some major changes, it appears that some issues have remained the same.

 

Like the wine cellar in Edgar Allen Poe’s “Cask of Amontillado,” a small staircase on these Supply Ships appears capable of becoming a ghastly trap, one that’s been very frustrating for players who come across it.

Turns out, that if you get lodged underneath the stairs, there’s a chance that you may never leave them, as one Reddit user was unfortunate to discover.

Was wondering why our mate didn’t help in the fight… Turns out he got stuck under the stairs. from apexlegends

 

After “wondering why our mate didn’t help in the fight,” felixx2108 realized that their teammate was simply unable to. Spectating from death, they could see that their teammate was stuck beneath a staircase, desperately clawing (or, more appropriately, punching) in all directions with seeming intent to help out their outmanned remaining comrade.

The rest of the Reddit comments detail a long-running list of Supply Ship bugs, including issues with trying to revive people there, getting trapped in walls, and even dying to its engines.

As eloquently summed up by another user, “If you haven’t played since Season 0, a lesson for you: don’t f**k with the Supply Ship.”

 

Apex Legends is a game known for its insane mobility and concurrent gameplay fluidity, where players are able to navigate the terrain seamlessly and find innumerable innovative ways to maneuver around the environment. 

It appears that, while the bug when reviving teammates seems to have been fixed, players must now be careful when brushing against the Supply Ship’s walls and stairwells in unorthodox fashions—especially when it’s moving. Hopefully this is addressed soon, but there’s been no word from Respawn Entertainment just yet.

Apex Legends leak reveals ranked solos and more game modes in the works

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
