Apex Legends player discovers unique way to kill cheaters under the map

A savvy Apex Legends player has discovered the perfect way to counter cheaters glitching under the map, and it might just make Lifeline an even more important Legend in the game.

The ability to glitch under maps has been evident in FPS games for as long as we can remember, and it’s an issue that seems like it might never go away.

Once one spot is patched, another one opens up, and Apex Legends is no exception to the rule, as players keep finding new ways to exploit the boundaries of both Kings Canyon and Worlds Edge.

Sometimes, it might happen by accident too, but either way, once an enemy is under the map, it’s extremely hard to kill them — so you have to be imaginative.

You’re going to need a Lifeline on the team for this to work.

While chasing a victory in World’s Edge, cheffymcchef and his teammates were trying desperately to take out the last remaining player, who they found stuffed between a couple of rocks, clipping in and out of the map.

It’s not clear whether the opponent had purposely glitched under World’s Edge, as they did appear to be trying to escape, but nonetheless it made for a very difficult final circle for cheffy and friends.

Finally, playing as Lifeline, they made the high IQ call to bring in a care package right on the spot the enemy was sat under: and, as you can see, it worked an absolute treat.

The car package immediately killed the last remaining enemy, who also happened to be kill leader, granting them the win.

Hopefully, the player wasn’t cheating and it was just a mishap. In September, developers Respawn started handing out week-long bans to players using exploits to get under the map, so it’s an issue they’re clearly taking seriously.

That said, at least now you know another unique way you can counter these players — and like cheffy, it might just win you a match.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
