Bizarre Apex glitch lets players go inside the Leviathans' legs

Fresh off the launch of Apex Legends Season 2, the Leviathans are playing a big role, with them moving around the map and everything, but it turns out there’s a way to get into the their legs with your squad.

Players were excited about what the Leviathans would do with Season 2 after Respawn teased their movement near the end of Season 1, and the results have been a bit of a mixed bag.

On one hand, you have the ability to get high-tier loot if you’re quick enough, but on the other hand, you have this potentially game-breaking glitch that allows players to hide inside of the leg and survive endless stomps.

Octane’s jump pad is needed to get into the Leviathan.

That isn’t supposed to happen

Reddit user wingedkeyboard showed that if you have a Wraith portal combined with Octane’s jump pad, you are actually able to get into the Leviathan’s leg – definitely something that wasn’t intended by the developers.

In fact, a Respawn developer commented on the thread sharing his sadness over the issue.

This won’t be a glitch you see happening all that often but it’s definitely something that would be annoying to go against, especially if the circle closes in around a Leviathan’s leg and you have no way to eliminate the enemy team.

Respawn will just have to add this onto the list of bugs that have to be fixed for Season 2.

EAWraith’s portals are important for getting inside of a Leviathan.

If this were Season 1, it still wouldn’t be ideal to have this bug but at least that was before a ranked mode was in the game.

With the new ranking system, players are able to rank up and get better rewards using this “strategy” so it’s worth getting one fixed as quickly as possible.

Apex Legends Season 2 is off to a good start among players, despite the setbacks with the bugs, and fans are hoping the goodwill keeps rolling.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
