Apex Legends players have uncovered a strange new glitch that allows them to get back on their feet from the revive animation, so long as they travel through Wraith’s portal. 

As one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends, Wraith can be found in pretty much every squad across World’s Edge and Kings Canyon.

While she has come with her own problems in the past – including easy ways to recharge her ultimate ability – the newest issue has come in the form of her portal being used to help teammates get back to their feet while needing a revive. 

Respawn EntertainmentWraith is one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The eye-raising bug was showcased by Reddit user FlashZordon, who while playing as Gibraltar, just backed their way into a Wraith portal was sent across the map. Now, what is strange, is that they weren’t immediately back on their feet.

Instead, the Gibraltar traveled through the portal as if they were still crawling around on the floor. Once they popped out the other side, they were then back on their feet and moving as the character’s usual speed. Though, they were still in need of a revive. 

Once their teammate did, however, start the revive process, the Gibraltar was dropped back down to the ground as if nothing had ever happened – causing the team to be left a little bemused by what had just happened.

While some might think that it’s a one-off problem that you may never see again in Apex Legends, one other fan noted that they’d won a game because of it. Though, instead of needing the helping hand of a teammate, they were able to get off a self-revive. 

Obviously, if Respawn deems the problem to be something that gives players a leg up, they’ll have to figure out a fix for it. Though, whether or not that is the case, remains to be seen.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
