Apex Legends players have uncovered a new bug that allows Wraith to reload weapons while using her void ability, by simply using some accurate timing. 

As she is one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends, you can expect to see plenty of Wraith's running around while you’re playing the battle royale. The interdimensional skirmisher has some pretty powerful abilities, but she has presented a few challenges in the past.

Players have discovered issues where she could have no cooldown on the Into The Void ability, and even survive outside the ring without taking any damage. Respawn Entertainment has addressed a few of these problems, but a new one could soon rear its head.

The new bug was showcased on the Apex Legends subreddit by user Rem-ember_to_flame who demonstrated that, when timed right, Wraith could start running into her void while reloading a weapon, stop the void run, and then be ready to fight.

As the timing needs to be spot on, the Redditor showed that it isn’t an exploit that players can pull off once and keep repeating, as they failed on their first attempt before then being able to reload a Peacekeeper.

There didn’t appear to be any sort of delay in being able to use the shotgun either, as once it was reloaded, the player was able to get some shots off on one of the game’s training dummies.

With Wraith meant to be having her hands full with conjuring up the void, she shouldn’t be able to hold a weapon – nevermind being able to reload one. 

Thankfully, though, it appears as if she is unable to actually shoot a weapon while inside her ability – even though that wouldn’t matter all that much anyway.

With the post gaining traction on the subreddit, and the developers being pretty active in posting, it remains to be seen if they are aware of the new problem.

If they are, or once they are anyway, it probably won’t take them all that long to rectify the issue and have Wraith back to her normal self.
