In what is without question one of the most absurd glitches you’ll ever see in Apex Legends, a Twitch streamer had the entire map disappear before dropping into combat. 

From bizarre bugs that make the game unplayable, to odd glitches that force everyone to spawn in the same location, it’s safe to say Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale title has its fair share of hilarious faults.

Unfortunately for a particular Apex Legends duo enjoying the limited-time mode, the odds definitely weren’t in their favor as an over-the-top texture bug completely ruined their chances.

Respawn Entertainment - Apex LegendsDuos came to Apex Legends through a limited-time mode that began on November 5.

In a November 17 post, Reddit user ‘Nacho4Sure’ showcased the absurd, game-breaking bug in all of its glory.

From the initial flyover that featured nothing but an odd outline of where the terrain should have been, to insane textures glitching all over the screen in the midst of combat, it’s safe to say this is one of the most bizarre bugs in Apex history. 

“I don’t see the map at all” one of the players explained before jumping out of the dropship and bursting into a fit of laughter.

The entirety of World’s Edge was gone from the match. Even when opening the top-down map, nothing was displayed in-game. Upon landing however, the situation was only made worse. 

With a full lobby of players fighting for early loot, textures started to repeat and layer across the bottom half of the screen.

From character models to the subtle movement of the player’s very own fists, everything that came into view was patterned across the entire screen with this hilarious texture bug.

World’s Edge was introduced in Season 3 of Apex Legends on October 1.

Despite the game itself working against them, the duo managed to secure a handful of eliminations in the midst of the texture frenzy. 

It became nearly impossible to distinguish an actual enemy from the sea of repeated character models across the screen, yet they put up a fair fight until the hilarity came to an end.

“[The] same bug happened to me few days ago. Felt like [the] server loaded [an] old map or something,” Reddit user ‘indhora’ explained, indicating that the game glitched out to an issue with the servers. Hence why multiple players were experiencing the exact same amusing issue.

While this extreme bug appears to be an exceptionally rare problem, Apex Legends has been plagued by a number of game-breaking issues of late.

From an “invisible wall” appearing at the worst possible moment to various characters gaining the wrong abilities, there’s never a short supply of hilarious bugs from the battle royale title.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Wraith still leads the way as Apex’s most-used legend.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
