An Apex Legends fan has stumbled upon a strange new bug that disrupts their landing routine on World’s Edge by keeping them up in the sky.

Apex Legends season three has helped breath new life into Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale with the release of a brand-new map – World’s Edge – as well as the long-awaited legend, Crypto.

Players have been getting used to their new surroundings and shifts in the game’s meta since the season’s release on October 1st, but it hasn’t been completely smooth sailing. We’ve seen issues with using health kits, reviving teammates, and even just getting into a playable lobby.

Yet, as the excitement and hype builds towards season four – which is set to drop over the holiday period – strange, nagging problems still remain. 

Respawn EntertainmentThe long-awaited Crypto joined Apex Legends with the start of season three.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user AzThaBoss showcased a video from a recent match where, as they were dropping in, their jump was disrupted by the game itself.

As the Redditor and a teammate tried to soar over a tall structure by Thermal Plant, they were held up and unable to land. Instead, while their teammate carried on, the duo were suspended above the tower in the landing animation before being placed back into their drop.

While the glitch was quite bizarre, it wasn’t completely game-breaking as AzThaBoss and their friend were able to get back on track in an attempt to get reunited with their third teammate.

However, they had no explanation for what had happened and were left seeing if anyone else had, unfortunately, run into the issue.

As of writing, no other responses suggested that they had so it’s unknown if this is a widespread issue or just something that AzThaBoss ran into. 

The Respawn development do, however, monitor the subreddit for bugs and similar issues so they could very well be aware of the problem and have a fix for it in no time.

Apex Legends player turns pretending to be an MRVN into a 1000 IQ play

One Apex Legends player’s role-playing adventure as one of MRVN NPC’s found on the map actually worked out quite well for them and could be a sneaky strategy to watch out for going forward.

Look, sometimes MVRN’s aren’t even worth your time to loot. They don’t really drop a lot unless you can attach one of their arms. However, that makes them prime bait material — because who knew Pathfinder could become Mirage?

Reddit user ‘warartic’ has showed off the ingenious decoy mechanic using the MVRNs scattered around the map to pull a fast one on an opponent, and all it took was a clever name and choosing Pathfinder as their legend.

Pathfinder is technically an MVRN, but with a lot more personality.

In the clip, the player, named “I’m MVRN” stands completely still with Pathfinder as enemies battle it out around them, and somehow none of the other players seem to suspect a thing.

Inside the final circle, most players amazingly don’t even give the imposter a second look. There is one Bloodhound who’s so close to getting it, and starts shooting them, but doesn’t do enough to finish them off. Apparently, they were satisfied that the lack of any reaction made what they were shooting an NPC.

The battle unfolds around the disguised player for over a minute until they finally decide to spring their trap at the perfect moment. With just one other squad left, they break character and go to eliminate the enemy Bangalore getting up her teammate, sealing the victory in one of the most hilarious and ridiculous ways we’ve seen lately.

Thankfully, it’s easy to tell whether or not it’s an actual MVRN or just a sneaky player trying to pull a fast one. First off, upon closer inspection Path is much more streamlined and rounded compared to the NPC versions, who will also have a green, glowing light on their face.

Non-player MVRN’s will also just be called “MVRN” on their nametag, nothing else, and react to you when you find them, some are also lootable as well. If you just see a suspicious-looking robot standing completely still in the corner of a room, go ahead and light it up, just to be safe.

You certainly don’t want to be the one caught by this strategy, which is apparently effective enough to score wins all on its own. So, take an extra second and make sure any MVRN actually isn’t a player in disguise, and you should be safe from an embarrassing elimination like this.
