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.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.

The long-awaited skin is finally returning, Respawn has confirmed.

For those who don’t know, Wraith’s Airship Assassin skin is a recolor of the pink Void Specialist skin, so you’ll need to unlock both of them in order to rock it.
