Apex Legends map glitch lets you land outside of World’s Edge

A newly discovered Apex Legends glitch allows players to land (and even hang out) on the rocks that are outside of the base World’s Edge map.

World’s Edge is a big map – about 150 percent the size of Apex Legends’ first map, King’s Canyon. But some aren’t satisfied with the map’s size and, as demonstrated by Redditor ‘AloeSnazzy,’ are willing to test its outmost extents of travel.

While King’s Canyon already had a significant 15 points of interest, World’s Edge ups the ante with a full 19. Bordered by rocky terrain, the combat perimeter is generally constrained to various buildings and some spicy lava settings.

Apex Legends’ World’s Edge map is full of lava, cities and bordered by tempting mountaintops.

 

Typically, when you land on a mountaintop that is too elevated, or too far away to be intended for gameplay, the game notifies you that you are “not in the battle zone” and deploys a countdown timer. At the end of that countdown timer, you are kicked from the match.

This makes sense, as developers don’t want players using unfair vantage points in a battle royale predicated on equal footing.

However, ‘AloeSnazzy’ has discovered that some mountaintops, far outside the traditional battle zone, are accessible without being kicked—an obvious glitch in the void.

By deploying past the top of the map, westward of Survey Camp and directly north of Skyhook, a player can casually descend atop the bordering topography.

Although it’s an interesting glitch, there fortunately seems to be no perk to landing out there, as you are immediately trapped upon doing so. Given its distance, you can’t jump to reach legal land or even, as Pathfinder, zipline to safety. 

There are only two real uses for this glitch: 1) You can land there and, circle permitting, survive for long enough to earn some easy placement points. 2) You can troll your friends as squad leader and show off some nifty, fairly useless map awareness.

It’s not clear that any circle patterns really make this bug particularly helpful, but it’s still bound to get patched out by Respawn Entertainment. Since it should be a relatively simple fix, be sure to troll your trusting squadmates sooner rather than later if you are so inclined.

Apex Legends players have got a clever new way to quickly access Crypto’s drone, but it might not be around all that much longer. 

Since Respawn released Apex Legends back in February of 2019, the roster of legends has grown and grown – giving players a tonne of different ways to play the battle royale as they go in search of wins.

With the addition of a new legend each season, players have the chance to rethink things, figure out new strategies, and ultimately learn a whole new set of abilities. 

This can lead to some pretty neat tricks being uncovered. In the case of Crypto, players have always tried to find quick ways to get into his drone. That’s included jumping on top of bins and charge towers, but now, there is a new way to instantly access the tactical ability. However, it might not be along for all the long.

Crypto has become one of Apex Legends’ most popular characters as the seasons have unfolded.

The new way to instantly use the drone was pointed out by Reddit user bricious, who showed that you need to have a holo-spray ready to go for whenever you want to use the drone. 

By tossing out the holo-spray while also quickly tapping the button you use to access the tactical ability, the animation that loads up the drone will be canceled right away and you’ll instantly be able to fly around with the drone. 

Similar to the Octane speed boost glitch seen earlier in Season 6, it’s all about the timing, but it doesn’t look ultra-difficult to perfect either.

Yet, as some other players pointed out, it might not be around for too long given the leg up it gives to Crypto mains by cutting out the initial loading animation.

Some other players, like Redditor SnaxelZ, pointed out that because it needs a holo spray, the tactic is also pretty “pay to win.” However, we’ll just have wait and see as to whether or not Respawn decides to patch it.
