Apex Legends Revenant Ultimate bug is sending players to their death

A strange Apex Legends bug revolving around Revenant’s Ultimate is sending players to the spot where they died – prompting them to die all over again for a second time.

After a few teases for different characters – primarily Forge – Revenant was introduced as the newest character back at the start of Apex Legends’ fourth season. The Synthetic Nightmare has quickly become a familiar face to players who are looking to claim a victory in the battle royale – though the character hasn’t been without issues.

Many players have complained about Revenant being too weak compared to how he actually should be, while others have found bugs with the Death Totem that have sent them straight to ‘hell’. Now, a new problem has been rearing its head that is ruining the character’s ultimate ability.

The issue was showcased by Reddit user iCarnages who used the Death Totem before taking on a group of enemy players that had locked themselves in a corner of a building. iCarnages activated the ultimate ability on the roof of the building, quickly jumped down, and started taking on the enemy squad in a dangerous firefight. 

Despite dealing plenty of damage, the Redditor was slain by their foes – but instead of being sent back to the totem on the roof, they were dropped right back on the spot where they had died.

As a result of only having 1HP to their name, iCarnages was quickly eliminated again by the enemy squad and sent back to the pre-game lobby – obviously frustrated by what had just unfolded in-game.

Of course, it is a pretty different problem to the ones that have come about from Revenant’s ultimate previously – who can forget the glitch that would send players to a different part of the map.

However, as it is clearly not working as intended, it will be something that Respawn will have to investigate at some point, just so it doesn’t cause more headaches down the line.

Apex Legends Season 8 early patch notes: Legends buffs, bug fixes, more

Apex Legends Season 8: Mayhem update is due to drop on February 2, and although patch notes aren’t expected until right before the update goes live, we already know of a bunch of confirmed changes and fixes coming. Here’s an early look at what the patch notes are expected to include.

Obviously, the main changes will be the addition of the new Legend, Fuse, who hails from Salvo, as well as the new weapon – the 30-30 repeater.

Kings Canyon will also be massively changed, as Fuse’s entrance to the Apex games did not go smoothly and his old friend Maggie crashed the party – literally.

But, the most exciting part of the patch notes themselves will be seeing how Respawn has adjusted the various Legends with nerfs and buffs, plus some of the quality of life changes planned.

Apex Legends Season 8: Early patch notes

New Legend: Fuse

Straight from Salvo, Fuse is an explosive Legend, and his abilities reflect this. He can shoot projectiles from his prosthetic arm, and his ultimate will shoot a mortar-like missile, which explodes into a ring of fire.

New Weapon: 30-30 Repeater

We didn’t get a new weapon in Season 7, but we are in Season 8. Fuse brings the 30-30 repeater straight from Salvo. It’s a lever-action rifle that packs a punch.

Kings Canyon map changes

The arrival of Fuse has obliterated Kings Canyon. Original POIs including Slum Lakes and Artillery have been destroyed, and there is a new hue to the map.

New Season 8 Battle Pass: Mayhem

As always, there will be a fresh battle pass for the new season, which will include over 100 items.

We don’t know if there will be any changes to the battle pass system yet, like there was in Season 7.

Legend changes

These are the Legend buffs and nerfs that Respawn have said will be coming in Season 8. Check out a full explanation and details on each change here.

Note: This is not a final list of all Legends that are getting changes in the Season 8 update.

Rampart

  • Adding 45 health to her Amped Cover

Wraith

  • Respawn say they are looking at changes to Wraith’s hitbox, to bring her in line with other Legends.

Horizon

  • Respawn are looking at nerfs to her tactical ability, but haven’t confirmed the exact changes they’re making yet.

Revenant

  • Respawn have been struggling to find a good buff for Revenant, but are looking at hitbox adjustments

Wattson

  • Respawn are looking for ways to make Wattson more fun, without making her more powerful

Mirage

  • Fix for decoys making footstep noise – this was originally in the Fight Night patch notes, but has been removed and will be coming in a future update, possibly with Season 8.

Caustic

  • Caustic hammer breaking doors – this was also originally in the Fight Night patch notes, but has been removed and will be coming in a future patch, possibly with Season 8.

Quality of Life

  • In-game damage tracker added

Bug Fixes

  • Heirloom store not showing all Heirlooms
  • Players told they are buying Gibraltar’s Heirloom when buying Caustic’s Heirloom
  • Legend skins for Mirage and Bangalore affecting aim down sights
  • Errors relating to private matches
  • Players can’t hear each other in cross-play lobbies

Ranked Play

A new Ranked Series will begin at the start of Season 8: Ranked Series 7. We expect that there will be two splits in the season again, with the first probably on World’s Edge. It’s unlikely that the new Kings Canyon features in Ranked, until players are used to the changes.

Season 8 Collection Event

Data miners have uncovered files related to an Anniversary Collection Event in Season 8. Although collection events typically start midway through the Season, this time it could potentially start earlier, given that the 2-year anniversary of Apex Legends is February 4 – two days after Season 8 starts.


That’s everything we know at the moment about what’s coming in the Season 8 update patch notes.

We’ll keep you updated with more changes as they come, and of course when Respawn releases the full patch notes.
