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.

Respawn have revealed what’s to come for Ranked play in Apex Legends Season 7 Ascension, which is going to have two splits across different maps, including the new Olympus arena, and crossplay progression between PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

The studio’s long term plans of merging their communities into one playlist has finally been realized. But progression towards your rank could play out differently depending on who you squad up with in the Apex Arena.

The Season 7 reveal held its fair share of twists and surprises, like a closer look at Olympus and the new Legend named Horizon, the devs also told us how the Ranked season will be split up.

Players grinding up to Predator will want to know when the mid-season reset will land as well as how rank progression will apply to teams with platters on multiple platforms.

Apex Ranked split dates and maps

The Ranked season in Apex is going to be broken into two different splits. One that takes place on Olympus, and the other moving to World’s Edge before the Ascension ends.

The Apex Legends community will be playing on the new map from the start of Season 7 on November 4 to December 15. After that, not only will ranks reset for everyone but teams will be switching over to World’s Edge for the rest of the way until Season 8.

For those keeping track, this means that Kings Canyon won’t be featured in Ascension’s Ranked playlists, though the devs said it would “return in a later season.”

Crossplay in Apex Legends will have ranked implications for people on multiple platforms.

Ranked Leagues and Crossplay

Console players who opt into crossplay will be able to play with anyone else on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch. But we warned, if you have one PC player on your team, that means you’ll also be pooled with anyone else on Origin or Steam.

Even though this should dramatically expand the pool of players to matchmake, just know that having someone on PC will invite other players using mouse and keyboard.

Other than that, matchmaking will be the same as normal and lobbies will still be sorted by RP count. For people in Master or Apex Predator ranks, Ranked matches will only earn RP on the platform you’re on.

So if you’re in those particular rank leagues and want to climb higher on PS4, then it won’t carry over to your progress on Xbox or PC.

Season 6 Rank Rewards

Before the end of Season 6, Respawn will of course close out the era with rank-specific rewards for people to add to their inventory.
