Apex Legends: Creative Pathfinder grapples make for easy escapes

Pathfinder has some satisfying grapple locations in Apex Legends to traverse the terrain with ease, but they can also be used for incredibly effective escapes.

Apex Legends fans immediately noticed that the mobility in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale felt slow and clunky, but that’s because the game has a ton of move sets for players to master.

While there’s everything from sliding, wall jumping, directional slides and the like, Pathfinder’s grapple is still the most dynamic way for a player to get across Kings Canyon. Though there are some locations on the map that make for easier transitions into slides and hops than others.

Pathfinder can get huge air for quick escapes, you just need to know where to hook.

Apex Legends YouTuber ‘Mokeysniper’ took a couple of days to figure out the best locations to use the Grappling Hook, and their effort paid off since the spots they found are some of the smoothest maneuvers in the game.

But what’s even more striking is the distance they cover that can be used for ridiculous escapes in a tricky situation.

Starting near the Cage by hooking the rock going east, Pathfinder can leap over the entire mound while having an entire downhill slope to transition into a huge slide.

From there, using the terrain, players can grapple to go from the middle of nowhere all the way into The Farm going north.

Similarly, Mokeysniper showed how clipping a tree before going into the Canyons could actually get players on the other side with a few strategic bunny hops to keep the momentum going. If done correctly, they can avoid a whole side of the mountain and leave an enemy team in the dust.

Just north of Bunker’s river-side entrance, Pathfinder can hope over the entire compound proceeding the Military Bay 02 doors. It's crazy to see how with one leap, the Forward Scout can go from desert terrain to the lush river in a flash.

Probably the most fun escape in the video is just before heading into the Destroyed Cascades from the canyons. By hooking the mountainside, players can slide all the way down the giant hill to the bottom, easily escaping enemies’ line of sight.

Mokeysniper is definitely perfecting the craft of satisfying Pathfinder hooks, but players can also see how useful they can be to avoid foes.
