Another insane Apex Legends bug makes Gibraltar very overpowered

It turns out that Gibraltar’s shield in Apex Legends has more uses than just protecting him from incoming fire, as players have discovered it is actually pretty sticky too – and will allow him to bounce around with some help from Octane.

Octane, the first new legend added to the game alongside Season 1: Wild Frontier, comes equipped with a bounce pad as his ultimate ability, which teammates and enemies can use to get a boost off the ground.

However, with some ingenuity, the bounce pad can actually be attached to Gibraltar’s shield, and then by looking down towards the ground, will send him flying through the air.

New exploits with Gibraltar’s gun shield are actually pretty effective.

It’s the second exploit that has been discovered in as many days, involving Gibraltar’s shield, which admittedly, is otherwise pretty useless.

First, players discovered that Caustic’s gas traps could attached, and then stacked upon, the shield, creating a massive jousting rod out of nothing but lethal gas traps.

Perhaps even more ridiculous is this Octane version of the exploit however, which essentially turns Gibraltar into a massive bouncy ball.

And this exploit is just cheap gimmick either – as it turns out that from Gibraltar’s perspective, the bounce pad is entirely see-through, so you can even aim and take out enemies with the pad attached.

You can see what the move looks like from Gibraltar’s perspective in the clip below, which demonstrates just how crazy his movement suddenly becomes.

As with the gas trap exploit, we expect developers Respawn Entertainment will be pretty quick to patch these bugs, but some players might be hoping they take their time with that update for once.

The developers certainly saw the funny side of the Gibraltar’s new-found usefulness though, and complimented the community on their ability to find the most absurd exploits.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
