Bizarre bug wipes out half of Apex Legends lobby instantly

Apex Legends players have been running into a new issue that is ruining matches before they can get underway – as they’re tossed outside the limits of the map.

Though there have been plenty of positives in Apex Legends latest season, bringing back old players with new content, and fans getting what they want with modes and maps, it hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing.

Players have run into bugs on a regular basis – ranging from pretty big issues that prevent fans from playing matches to small hiccups that you’ll ultimately laugh about after the fact.

Apex Legends players aren’t even getting the chance to play matches thanks to the new bug.

However, one player has showcased an all-new problem that is wiping out entire servers as players try to jump into a match.

As shown in the video, players are encountering a bug that sees them locked into the dropship as it is supposed to pass over the map but, instead, remains stuck in one place. After a few moments, every player remaining in the ship is tossed out at the limit of the map – forcing them to try and rescue themselves.

However, as dropping into the map has become a little out of reach, said players are unable to save themselves and end up falling to their death before they even have a chance to play a match.

As this example came from World’s Edge, some onlookers might assume that is a problem with that particular map. Yet, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

In fact, another Reddit user claimed that they had also run into the same issue while attempting to play a game on Kings Canyon. 

These examples of the problem happening on different maps and in different games would point to it not being a small issue that has reared its head, but instead, something that could easily ruin more and more matches if it is not addressed.

The Respawn team has not commented on the subreddit or made a note of it on their Trello board, so, it remains to be seen as to whether or not they are aware of the brand new issue.

T-minus 10 to Olympus — the World’s Edge rocket has finally fired up its engine after lying dormant for most of last season, in the next Apex Legends Season 7 teaser to appear in-game ahead of the battle royale’s next huge update.

Apex Legends players have spotted the latest in-game teaser ahead of the release of Season 7 ⁠— the World’s Edge rocket has finally fired up its engines, after nearly three months of lying dormant in the middle of the battle royale map.

The rocket has yet to leave, but it’s now-firing thrusters are clearly visible.

Fire is pouring out of the bottom of the spaceship’s thrusters, while smoke billows out of venting chambers around the rocket’s main shaft. It’s certainly come alive.

The Hammond rocket, located in new Season 6 point of interest Launch Site, has been part of the scenery for months. It certainly seemed important ⁠— especially when it featured in an early Rampart teaser ⁠— but players weren’t sure why.

Now everything seems clear; the Hammond rocket may well be taking Apex Legends to its long-awaited third battle royale map, which Respawn officially unveiled on Oct. 26.

The new map, which Dexerto tipped all the way back in Season 5, has been mentioned and name-dropped in multiple Apex Legends teasers over the past few months. It’s arrival ended up being delayed slightly, but now it’s finally on its way.

Or rather, it looks like we’re on our way to it. The end of Season 6 ⁠— Wednesday, Nov. 4, for the record ⁠— should see us finally board the now-prepared Hammond rocket, and fling us all the way to the third Apex Legends map, Olympus.

Olympus is going to be the first proper city Apex Legends players get to play in since launch.

The rocket rumbling to life isn’t the only Olympus teaser we’ve seen land on World’s Edge in the buildup to the season switch either. Last week, a mysterious UFO began floating on the outskirts on the map. Sadly, you can’t board the huge structure just yet.

For now, it’s a waiting game. We’ll see the new Olympus map arrive next week, along with vehicles, the next Apex Legends character “Horizon,” a long-awaited clubs feature, and much more, but we’ve got just a little more waiting to do first!
