Pathfinder’s Grappling Hook is a handy tool to get you from Point A to Point B in Apex Legends, however it can also secure you a victory in hilarious fashion if your timing is just right.

While Pathfinder doesn’t drop into battle with the most aggressive abilities in the game, there’s no denying that the Support Legend can come in clutch throughout the final moments of a match.

With an emphasis on mobility, it’s exceptionally rare for Pathfinder to secure a kill on behalf of his tools yet this amusing final showdown demonstrated just how powerful the Grappling Hook can be.

The enemy Pathfinder would have been left with a sad face after such a ridiculous defeat.

In a November 24 post, a closely contested Diamond matchup came down to the wire. With only two squads remaining the odds became drastically lopsided as a well-timed snipe forced a three on one scenario.

Spotting the final opponent atop a nearby roof, the Pathfinder sent forth his Grappling Hook in order to scale up the building and close the gap. 

Directly connecting to the enemy instead, this particular grapple hilariously locked on and pulled the opposition down into the midst of an entire team where they would swiftly meet their demise.

I feel so bad for this last dude.. i really did not mean to do this from r/apexlegends

The grapple was fired just above the building itself, launching over the rooftop and connecting with an unaware enemy behind. An extremely rare use of the ability, it can be tremendously difficult to latch onto enemies and pull them into you, let alone in the closing moments of a ranked match.

Having left himself entirely exposed during the grapple however, Pathfinder was eventually knocked down but ultimately, the unbelievable maneuver guaranteed the victory for his squad.

This offensive use of the ability is such a niche tactic that even dedicated players are often caught by surprise. “Wait, you can do this?” Reddit user ‘CoffeeDealer99’ asked, amazed at what they had just witnessed in the game-winning play.

Undeniably one of the best uses of Pathfinder’s kit in some time, the entire squad would have erupted in laughter at the sight of an enemy being pulled down right in front of them. 

One of many amusing ways to end an Apex Legends match it seems, a Bronze player recently demonstrated how Octane’s Launch Pad can lead to a hilarious finish as well.
