There have been major bugs in Apex Legends that have been causing players tons of headaches, but an emerging problem with Wraith’s portals are really throwing players in a loop.

Respawn Entertainment released their battle royale on February 4, and has since garnered a massive following for its different approach to the genre. But with long time in between updates, players have been experiencing a swarm of bugs throughout King’s Canyon.

One of the latest entries of glitches found in the game comes in the form of an infinite loop that Reddit user ‘cubsfan219’ found themself in after using a Wraith’s Dimensional Rift while outside of the zone.

Respawn EntertainmentInterdimensional Rifts definitely help getting out of a tricky situation, but sometimes they can cause players tons of frustration.

In the nauseating clip, cubsfan219 can be seen being thrown back and forth from one end of the Wraith ultimate to the other, seemingly without a way to end the cycle.

The user said that “a wraith sent me to purgatory. I was stuck like this for 5 min with no possible way to get out,” baffling other players who saw the strange bug.

Apparently it was no exaggeration about the portal glitch’s duration seeing as the Interdimensional Rift “didn’t time out like normal.” It was so bad that cubsfan219 eventually just left the game since there was nothing for them to do.

It doesn’t seem like the cause for the glitch is known, but some had their suspicions as to why the portals didn’t just disappear like normal.

“I’m going to assume the portals have a leeway timer on them if someone is actively using them,” Reddit user ‘Narc26’ said. “You probably would have been suck for the rest of the game.”

Wraith’s Portals have seen a lot of bugs

There have been numerous instances of strange errors concurring with the Interdimensional Skirmisher’s ultimate ability that have both helped and hindered players in the past.

Of course there is the famous infinite portal glitch that let Wraith players set up a startling amount of portals in quick succession.

Respawn EntertainmentWraith’s portals add a dynamic layer to the game, but it doesn’t always end up well.

Similarly, some players have been able to use the Wraith portal for insane tactics that could really throw off opponents in the battle royale.

Portals in Apex Legends have been used in a number of great ways, so hopefully Respawn can find a way to rid the game of the endless loop bug.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
