Bizarre Apex Legends glitch completely breaks Wraith’s void walk

A new Apex Legends glitch has been discovered in which Wraith’s tactical ability, “Into the Void,” is completely broken for the duration of the match due to seemingly poor server synchronization. 

Wraith is the sneakiest character in Apex Legends—all thanks to her unique relationship with the mysterious Void.

She has a passive ability, “Voices from the Void,” which tells her whenever an opposing player has taken notice of her. She has an ultimate ability, “Dimensional Rift,” that allows her to create portals for teleportation.

Wraith is best known for her “interdimensional” talents.

And, most importantly, her tactical ability allows her to “Void walk” or “phase,” where she traverses the earthly plains while in the Void—meaning that she is essentially invisible (albeit for an easily recognized trail) and invulnerable to damage.

This move is a crucial tool for repositioning during engagements, and often allows Wraith players to escape when on the verge of death.

But there seems to be a glitch where, sometimes, players appear to activate the Void walk on their game client while being simultaneously downed by an opponent. This prompts the Legend to get downed while in the void, which itself is entirely unintended.

As shown by Wraith main ‘Proki-’ on Reddit, this bug can happen in actual games but can also be replicated in the Firing Range. It begins with the troubling downing while in the void, but what happens next is even more concerning.

Even after being revived—the character will no longer be able to phase properly as the animation will simply cancel before she is able to enter her trusted portal.

Wraith’s Perfect Soldier skin is scary, but this glitch may be scarier.

This means that the Legend’s most useful skill is no longer available, leaving her completely vulnerable during engagements and practically disabling the style of play mains have become used to.

This appears to be caused by a disconnect between the player’s client, the game’s server, and the opposing foe’s client as the downing shots are only registered once the Wraith has already entered their Void.

Thus far, there has been no comment from Apex Legends’ developers over at Respawn Entertainment and no confirmation as to how exactly this glitch functions.

Simple Apex Legends trick lets Pathfinder “quick launch” for easy kills

A simple trick with Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook lets him ‘quick launch’ into the air, which gives Apex Legends players a way to bamboozle enemies for stylish kills.

Players dropping into the Apex Games know that mobility plays a huge part in the outcome of fights. Since most characters in the game aren’t super agile, people have been getting inventive with how they mix up their movement.

This has led to a number of different moves being discovered that can be easily repeated or inserted for different scenarios during a match.

A concept like this isn’t lost to Pathfinder mains who tend to make great use of the Legend’s Grapple Hook tactical ability to zip around the battle royale in an instant.

Pathfinder is the premier Legend for getting around the Arena.

Apex pro Otto ‘ottr’ Boström showed how to pull off the quick launch, something that he sees as a tool that can be helpful in a firefight. The clip in question shows him taking on a close-ranged 2v1, when the enemy Wraith got a bit too close for comfort.

Casually, ottr showed how using Pathy’s grapple on the ground can give someone huge air in an attempt to throw off the other person for a vicious counterattack.

“Lots of people tell me they never see this move so figured I’d spread the word!” he said before describing the sequence. For those unaware of the trick, it can definitely be a game-changer in tight situations, letting people get that spare moment they need to line up a shot.

To pull it off: “Grapple, jump as the grapple hits, airstrafe the direction you want, cancel by pressing crouch, shoot,” ottr said.

plant your grapple in the ground and jump (then cancel) in order to do a quick launch and get the jump on your opponents from apexuniversity

That results in Pathfinder getting shot upward, giving players both an offensive and defensive tactic rolled into one. Even before using the trick, ottr was managing the 2v1 pretty well, but when things got hairy he launched up to quickly end the fight.

Just keep in mind that changes to Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook are getting looked over by Respawn, and it could alter how the ability is used.

But until then, this looks like a worthwhile tool to keep in the bag if you’re playing Pathfinders, since it’s bound to throw off a few Apex Legends opponents in a match.
