Apex Legends players have uncovered an unusual bug that allows them to cancel out an active silence from Revenant so long as they’re revived by a teammate.

After being introduced in Apex Legends Season 4, Revenant joined the list of characters who played best fit the disruption playstyle best.

Revenant can easily keep enemies pinned down and without their abilities thanks to his Silence tactical, and he’s also a pretty solid flanker thanks to his increased climbing ability from his Stalker passive.

However, some players have noticed that if they are silenced and downed, and they’re picked back up by a teammate, they are able to shake off the silence pretty quickly no matter how long is left on the countdown.

Flaws in Revenant’s ability kit is letting some Apex Legends players get the better of him.

Twitch streamer bunnzeetv showed off the bug during a recent broadcast as they had been silenced and knocked down by a Revenant.

After being picked up by the Pathfinder on their team, the streamer still had a few seconds left on the countdown to use his Lifeline abilities after being silenced. However, he was shocked to see that, with the countdown at around two seconds, he was actually able to toss out the D.O.C Drone.

It wasn’t just a visual glitch either. The drone immediately started giving the streamer a boost just like it normally would, even though the silence counter ticked down through the last few seconds.

Though the bug might only work on a pretty situational basis, it does make Revenant ability somewhat worthless if players can just hop back up like nothing happened – especially if there’s a decent amount of time left on the Silence.

As of writing, the problem has not cropped up on Respawn’s public Trello board of bugs, so it’s unknown as to whether or not they’re aware of it. Though, Revenant mains will be hoping that it’s ironed out sooner rather than later.

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
