Being the jumpmaster is never easy, as one Apex Legends player shows why they should never hold the title again.

Upon picking up Apex Legends, you’ll find there’s a lot to learn in the battle royale made by Respawn Entertainment.

From mastering all the playable characters to understanding optimal looting strategies, there’s plenty to learn to dominate the competition.

The community response was also aware of the mishap, with one user saying “Bro thinks hes horizon.” 

It all ends with the ironic “You’re safe with Gibraltar.”
