Apex Legends players looking for ways to get around Kings Canyon and World’s Edge easier might not have to look around anymore, because this trick will have you bouncing from place to place in no time – and it’s even better with a Peacekeeper. 

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale title was released some time ago now, in February 2019, and it’s startling to think that some maneuverability tactics that are included in the game are still not known by some of the player base.

Seasoned veterans of the Apex Games will know by now that you can sprint, slide, jump and glide around the respective maps with the right circumstances, but the trick we’re going to run through here is a little different – and can be super useful, particularly when using weapons that need to power up.

Travelling around Apex Legends’ maps can be made so much faster – and more fun – with this trick.

Bunny hopping has had its moments in Apex and is a tactic seen in many other games, where players continuously use a jumping motion to get around.

After a previous patch by Respawn prevented bunny hop healing, another technique has been showcased by Reddit user SadCloud420, which shows that using slopes can give you just enough momentum to sustain a really long chain in Apex Legends Season 4.

Without a doubt, this isn’t something every Apex player will be shocked to see, although it can be really useful in the situation this poster showed.

Quick Tip: You can bunny hop while aiming down sight, to keep you pk charged while moving at full velocity from apexlegends


Using the bunny hop technique, the user shows that the charge of the Peacekeeper can be saved while your character is jumping around, meaning that if you run into enemies while travelling around the map fast using this tactic, you can fire a super charged round at them right off the bat.

To do this, simply slide down a ramp – as seen in the video – and while aiming down sight, hop around and the shotgun will charge up along the way. To be able to charge it, for those who don’t know, it will need a Precision Choke attached to the weapon.

Knowing what you now know, you can move around the map much faster than usual using this method and also get the best out of your Peacekeeper in the process. Not bad.

Ahead of the game’s Season 7 update, set to start on November 7, one of the Apex Legends developers has provided a small but meaningful update on the audio issues that have been plaguing the game for a while now. 

Of course, the new season will bring a slew of new content, including a new Legend, but just as important are buffs, nerfs, and bug fixes.

One of the most pressing problems in the game right now is the audio. While a number of different issues are plaguing the sound, the most notable is that sometimes there’s a lack of audio for enemy footsteps.

Understandably, this is causing some major frustrations for players, as that can lead to easy deaths. Luckily, it seems like the solution is just around the corner.

One of the biggest problems with Apex Legend’s audio right now, is the lack of enemy footsteps in certain situations.

According to Apex Legends Game Director Chad Grenier in a Reddit post, the audio team has made “lots of progress” when it comes to the audio issues. Unfortunately, however, he didn’t go into any specific detail about the actual “progress” that has been made.

In addition, he also hinted that at least some of the audio issues should be fixed during the game’s Season 7 update, although some of the others will have to wait until “just after Season 7”. Grenier didn’t provide an update as to when that second update will come, meaning it could be anywhere from a week after the first patch to a month after.

Chad Grenier, Apex Legend’s game director, posted this reply on Reddit in regards to the audio issues in the game.

That last part is sure to disappoint some players who were hoping that all of them would be fixed at the same time but at least some progress is better than no progress.

Either way, fans won’t have to wait too long for the first round of fixes, as Apex Legends Season 7 is set to drop on November 10, 2020.
