A hidden spot on King’s Canyon could be the perfect Apex Legends sniper’s nest to help win your next few games.

Apex Legends players have uncovered a number of clever hiding spots throughout the battle royale’s lifecycle. From a sneaky spot just for Pathfinder, to a unique area in the Harvester on World’s Edge, there are plenty of places to run and hide.

A new spot discovered on Kings Canyon could be the most practical to date, however, as players are able to snipe down foes from afar, all while hidden away.

Snipers could benefit from checking out this hiding spot.

Venturing through the map with only a handful of squads left standing, a unique hiding spot was found close to The Cage.

“Do you want to know the most broken spot in the whole game?” Reddit user ‘TheIrritatedCritic’ asked in the midst of a March 31 ranked game.

Ziplining up to the high-ground in the remnants of the Bridges area from the map’s first iteration, they soon slid underneath a nearby structure.

Seemingly an area that players are supposed to be locked out of by an invisible wall of sorts, they were able to awkwardly float across to a crazily powerful hiding spot.

So… I got bored in ranked and ended up finding this hidden spot… from apexlegends

 

Completely hidden away from opposing teams, with only one entry-point, it would be a cheeky location to camp out a lobby if the storm closes in around that particular area.

However, gaps in the wooden surface actually allow you to peer through and potentially snipe down enemies from afar as well.

“No one will see you down there either, and going up the zipline, no one will see you,” they explained. “It’s probably the most broken spot in the f***ing game.”

Without a sniper at the ready, players could pepper away at enemies with automatic weapons or simply use the spot to scout without any fear of being picked off.

While the spot may soon be patched out of the game, developers at Respawn are yet to comment on the matter so be sure to keep an eye out for players abusing it.

Apex Legends player finds bug that makes Lifeline’s drones unbreakable

An Apex Legends player discovered a new bug the hard way when Lifeline’s Drone acted indestructible when they tried to shoot through it to get to an enemy, failing miserably.

Lifeline has been in Apex since day 1, and has been a go-to legend ever since primarily for her powerful healing abilities. Even though we’ve had well over a year to learn her kit, some bugs are still popping up.

We all know the futility of trying to attack a Lifeline’s shield while she rezzes a teammate, but it’s also worth noting that a new bug is turning her healing drone invulnerable, making it impossible to destory.

Name a better Apex Legends duo, we’ll wait.

That’s right, while it may be small, with the bug it sure is mighty, though to be fair you don’t often see the Drone being used as cover, because so far it’s been destructible.

So, the clip below can really teach us two lessons here: think twice before shooting through the drone, and that Lifelines should think about crouching behind it whenever possible, because you never know, right?

In the shot, Reddit user TheChapelOfWhite comes upon the unsuspecting healer and seems to be well on their way to an easy kill. That is until they empty a full clip into the drone, which does nothing but alert the other player and their squad.

After that, ChapelOfWhite is unceremoniously cut down by Lifeline’s teammates who appear almost instantly to protect their support.

It turns out Lifeline drones are indestructible, I had no idea. from apexuniversity

It’s an embarrassing way to go out, that’s for sure, but instead of tossing their controller out the window and swearing off Apex for a few days as some would have done, they instead took to Reddit to post the clip of the apparent glitch.

With so many new legends added in between release and where we are now, it’s kind of crazy that this hasn’t happened, or at least been shared before. Lifeline is one of the most popular legends to play as well, so it is a bit wild we’re just now seeing this bug.
