Apex Legends player discovers invisible platform above Kings Canyon

Apex Legends players have flagged a strange new bug that is allowing them to land atop an invisible platform above Kings Canyon, giving them the chance to snipe from the sky or be separated from teammates.

The launch of Apex Legends season five gave battle royale players to use the highly anticipated character Loba, but, Respawn Entertainment have had plenty of work on their hands when it comes to bugs and other issues.

The biggest frustration so far has been the recently patched hit registration issues, although plenty of other nagging problems have surfaced, like being unable to loot death boxes or having Mirage decoys disrupt Octane’s ultimate. Now, a new problem that allows players to land on top of an invisible platform in the sky can also be added to the list.

The new season of Apex Legends has given way to a new character, map changes, and more.

The strange new issue was pointed out by Reddit user SpabRog, noting that as they came out of the portal above labs, their drop was impeded by the invisible platform while he was playing as Mirage. 

As the Redditor showed, he was as bamboozled as someone seeing a Mirage decoy for the first time as he walked around the platform trying to figure out what was going on. However, he didn’t stay there for long. Instead, SpabRog managed to find his way back to solid ground and was able to carry on with the game.

Other players pointed out that they’ve also run into the invisible platform, with some using it to their advantage. One player, I_Eated_A_Soup, said you are even able to ping it, while another pointed out that you can end up with fall damage if you drop off it.

Obviously, if the platform isn’t meant to be there then it is something for Respawn to address with a quick fix of some kind.

Whether they do so anytime soon, however, very much remains to be seen.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning two of Mirage’s uncles, Droz and Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

Evelyn also says that her brothers would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to their nephew Elliot.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
