Apex Legends players have encountered a strange bug that turns Revenant invisible shortly after equipping some gold armor.

After much speculation about who was going to be released as the new legend, the fourth season of Apex Legends kicked off with the release of the super creepy Revenant. 

Despite some stern criticism from streamers like Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, who believe that players will soon realize just “how bad” the character is, the Synthetic Nightmare has become a mainstay in trios that run around the newly updated World’s Edge map in the hopes of grabbing a win. Yet, there is a growing issue that the Respawn Entertainment team might want to check out.

Revenant’s arrival in Apex Legends has given players the chance to fight off death with a second life.

Redditor BigBuluga showcased a video from a recent game of theirs on the Apex Legends subreddit where, bizarrely, Revenant disappeared from the screen and was replaced by floating guns. 

It came after the trio had wiped out another team and looted their goodies in the hopes of grabbing some game-changing equipment. After upgrading from white armor to gold the Revenant disappeared, leaving the teammate to ponder as to what had just happened.

After questions about what had just unfolded came in, the Redditor didn’t reveal any further details about whether or not their teammate re-appeared in their normal form.

Instead, he noted that they just started laughing about how funny the whole situation was. “I’ve been laughing for like 5 minutes,” BigBuluga added in the comments.

With the issue happening during the return to the original Kings Canyon map in its limited-time release, it’s unknown if the bug is linked specifically to that or if it’s something that can affect normal matches too.

It remains to be seen if it is something that Respawn needs to address in a coming update or if it’s something that will just disappear once everything goes back to normal and players are solely playing the World’s Edge map.

Apex Legends content creator and Apex Predator ‘chiknnuggey’ has offered players of Respawn’s battle royale 28 tips and tricks to instantly improve in-game. 

Regardless of your rank in Apex Legends, chances are you have certain areas you can improve. Whether it’s recoil control, movement around the map or deciding how to balance your loadout, no player is completely flawless, as much as they might like to tell themselves.

Chiknnuggey, an Apex YouTuber and Predator-rank player, sits at 13,000 YouTube subscribers, and regularly posts Apex content to try and help his subscribers.

That’s exactly the aim of his January 15 video, which offers a whopping 28 tips and tricks to Apex Legends players, ensuring they’ve got the game’s basics completely nailed.

To be great at Apex Legends, you need to make sure you’ve got the basics done.

As you can imagine with 28 tips and tricks, they cover a lot of bases. The Predator’s movement tricks involve ‘zipline bouncing’ meaning you can use ziplines positioned near buildings to instantly reach an elevated position.

Another awesome trick is being able to throw grenades through closed doors. To do this, aim for the very bottom corner of the door, and use the projectile indicator. When it disappears, it means your grenade will slip through the corner of the closed doors. It’s a great way to damage an enemy you know is one the other side.

We also really like the tip to enable fast armor swaps. If you’re in a heavy loot area and planning on hanging around there, drop all the available armor on the floor. In an engagement, you can easily swap your armor for a new one, without having to open a loot box. This will give you a major health boost instantly, and could be the difference between winning and losing a fight.

There are also some more well-known tips, such as how to avoid the fall stun by meleeing a nearby surface (meleeing the ground was patched out long ago, but there’s a new way).

Your play-style may differ from some of the tips, but anything recommended by an Apex Predator should be worth trying out. If you don’t like a tactic or can’t pull it off, then drop it and stick to ones you know you’re capable of. Other than that, drop in and gives these tricks a go!
