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.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
