This unusual glitch with Wraith’s Dimensional Rift has led to Apex Legends players being completely trapped in a ceiling.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games available, however, it does also come with its fair share of glitches and exploits.

Although they tend to get patched by developers Respawn Entertainment relatively quickly, any player who is lucky (or unlucky) enough to encounter them can often have their game ruined.

Respawn EntertainmentWraith’s Dimension Rift ability has been the cause of many glitches in Apex Legends.

Wraith’s ultimate ability, Dimensional Rift, has been host to many bugs in the past due to the unique nature of the two portals that it opens.

One Apex Legends player, u/TechnoPup, revealed that they had encountered yet another glitch with the fan-favorite character after they chased an opposing Wraith through a portal.

To their surprise when they came out the other end of the Dimensional Rift, TechnoPup appeared to have been trapped in the ceiling while remnants of the portal remained around their character.

TechnoPup seemed to try everything to escape from the glitch, even using Pathfinder’s grapple ability to pull the character out of it.

However, unfortunately for the player, even that did not seem to do the trick, as the grapple just continued to cycle endlessly against the floor.

“After the recording, a lifeline walked in and killed me. I was knocked in the air.” the player later commented, explaining that even after being knocked they could not escape the bug.

There have been similar bugs including Wraith’s portal in the past, including one where the player was stuck in a continuous loop while traveling between the character’s two rifts.

Others even allowed players to create infinite portals, though this was later patched in an update, but had been possible for months.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning her brother Droz, and another individual, Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

While it appears Evelyn is related to both of the soldiers, some fans are speculating that she is only related to Droz by blood, and Davis is more of a “brother in arms.” Regardless of the exact connection, it seems both Titanfall 2 characters had a close relationship with Evelyn and her son.

Mirage’s mother also says that the two would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to Mirage.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
