Game-breaking Apex Legends glitch makes Wraith almost unkillable

A game-breaking Apex Legends glitch allows Wraith players to use her Into the Void tactical ability multiple times back-to-back.

Wraith’s Into the Void is one of the more powerful tactical abilities in the game, making her invulnerable to damage and granting a slight movement speed increase to allow her to escape and reposition.

Thanks to a new exploit, however, it appears that players are able to use the ability without incurring the 25-second cooldown, meaning they can continuously become invulnerable and therefore be almost impossible to kill.

It’s not entirely clear how this glitch is executed, although it seems to be related to interrupting the ability’s initiation with a melee attack. The player exploiting the glitch can be seen using Into the Void multiple times back-to-back, so it appears that the glitch can be replicated quite reliably.

Apex Legends player Darkstar XT caught the glitch in action. The player in question appears to be playing on PS4, and it’s not clear yet whether this glitch can be exploited on all platforms or just on that console.

This glitch could give Wraith players massive advantages, both allowing them to maintain a faster pace over long distances and, if chained together properly, making them practically unkillable while escaping from enemy fire. The ability also prevents damage from the ring, so repeated uses could allow Wraith to take routes that otherwise wouldn’t be possible or survive for much longer than she should.

This isn’t the first time that Wraith has been able to use her abilities without incurring the proper cooldown, and in the previous instance the glitch was also performed by interrupting the ability as it was initially used.

For some time, Wraith players were able to use her Dimensional Rift ultimate ability multiple times without resetting their ultimate charge, although that glitch has now been fixed by developers Respawn Entertainment.

Apex Legends players will undoubtedly be hoping that this too gets addressed before it becomes too prevalent and Wraiths become especially infuriating to play against.

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.

Apex on Steam

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
