There are a ton of movement tricks in Apex Legends that can give players an upper-hand on World’s Edge, and none are better at discovering these tactics than Team Liquid’s Lucas ‘Mendokusaii’ Håkansson.

While Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale has a ton of Legends with unique ability kits to take into the Apex Games, when the guns start blazing survival is all about how a player maneuvers around a fight to come out on top.

People have already discovered a ton of slick ways to contort around a difficult situation, but very few of those tricks have teammates in mind for getting around World’s Edge.

That is until Mendo and his group got into the Firing Range and discovered an unorthodox but highly effective way of giving less-mobile Legends a boost up to high peaks.

Perching themselves near a wall that isn’t quite scalable with the climbing function, Mendo used a punch-jump to help Wraith get up over the ledge.

“What if I can punch you while you jump and then you can start climbing to get that little extra boost,” Mendo hypothesized.

On the first try, the theory turned out to work. Though reproducing the “Liquid Jump” took a bit of practice to sync up the timing of the jump and the punch up.

In order to do it, a teammate will have to jump up while another punches them upward to get a huge leap off the ground.

As for the person punching, they’d have to punch their teammate near the moment they leaped in order to send them flying.

It seems like it’s easier to reproduce the trick with some Legends over others, as the squad strung a ton of leaps with Pathfinder as the launcher – but it’s more about the timing than the characters a team uses.

As situational as it seems, it didn’t take long to find a use for the trick in-game, as the team pulled off the maneuver to launch a Wraith to a tower high above.
