Apex Legends revive bug breaks Revenant’s Silence ability

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.

Apex Legends Halloween Fight or Fright event: Shadow Royale, Skins, more

It’s that time of year again, when Halloween comes to gaming, and Respawn are bringing their spooky theme back to Apex Legends. The Fight or Fright event comes with a collection of scary skins, and a new twist on the last year’s Shadowfall LTM, now called Shadow Royale.

Just like Warzone’s “Haunting of Verdansk” event, the map will be getting another makeover, and players will get a chance to play as new and improved ‘Shadows’ in the Shadow Royale mode.

Last year’s Shadowfall LTM went down a treat: not only did we get to see (and hear) Revenant for the first time, it was a brilliant twist of the standard battle royale gameplay.

Also, to make sure you look the part, lots of Halloween-themed skins are coming to the store. Many of them are similar to last year’s though with fresh colors, but there’s also brand new ones for the new Legends that have been added since last October.

Shadow Royale LTM

In the Shadow Royale mode, players will play as both normal Legends, as well as drop-in as Shadows once eliminated. Shadows are now more deadly than before in some ways, as they can now wallrun and double jump (Titanfall players rejoice).

Plus, rather than just playing in Solos, there’s Shadow Squads, where teammates remain as Shadows as long as one Legend remains alive.

Then there’s Final Death, when the final Legend dies, all shadows die too. We also see Shadow Prowlers, what role they will play remains to be seen, but they’re attacking the remaining Legends in the trailer.

Wallrunning, just like Titanfall, is finally in Apex Legends – but only if you’re a Shadow.

Apex Legends Halloween skins

These skins are being dubbed ‘resurrected’, pretty much meaning they are recolors of previous skins from last year’s Fight or Fright event.

Eight bundles will be included in total, on a two week rotation. The first set for October 22 – 27:
