Apex Legends fans are fed up with one “infuriating” glitch on the Three Strikes LTM that respawns them in the middle of the map no matter what.

Unfortunately, the new LTM is not without its quirks and hiccups, like an annoying exploit players discovered that lets squads kill knocked players.

According to other commenters, this isn’t an isolated incident, as they too claimed to have games ruined by this respawn glitch.

“Happened about 10 times to me in the past 24 hours, said one player. “When it happens on Stormpoint it glitches me into a rock so I die every strike. Very infuriating.”

Some players claimed that Valkyrie was the reason these respawn issues were happening in Three Strikes, with some arguing that Respawn should “force disable her” until the glitch is fixed.

One fan argued that, while “annoying” Three Strikes specifically makes it fairly easy to recover from this glitch. “All you have to do is continually revive yourself in a staggered manner. Since you get sooo much health on revive in this mode….you could technically just stagger revive all the way through ring to your teammate.”

While it may be recoverable, it’s undoubtedly still frustrating to have a match ruined by something outside the player’s control. With the Three Strikes LTM set to end in the coming days, it’s unclear if this glitch will be fixed before the game mode is gone for good.
