An Apex Legends player has uncovered a trick that will make looting while playing as Pathfinder an absolute breeze – especially if you manage to find a loot tick.
Like other battle royales, Apex Legends has a number of different ways for players to grab themselves some loot. There are floor spawns, supply bins, and even loot vaults – with the latter having some of the best items that can be found in-game inside their doors.
There are also loot ticks, the small robot creatures that players see when they open up an Apex Pack. These are scattered around the map at random for each game but are incredibly rare to find. Though, if you do manage to find one, you won’t have to be on top of it to grab the loot inside.
The new trick was pointed out by Reddit user Fatmanspoop, who posted a game from one of their recent games to the Apex Legends subreddit.
While playing as Pathfinder, the Redditor was able to pull a loot tick towards them using the legend’s grapple hook ability, with the pair colliding in midair and the tick falling at their feet. Unlike how it worked previously, the loot tick didn’t immediately pop open with loot like a Pinata.
Instead, the Redditor was able to play around with the item for a few moments – pulling it around the room and getting the loot tick stuck on a number of different environmental objects.
Some other Redditors pointed out that they’d uncovered the trick awhile back, but, obviously, not everyone had made the discovery for themselves.
The Apex fan even pointed out that, in the future, players might be able to pull an enemy death box towards them with the grapple ability – though that might make Pathfinder even more overpowered than usual.
Of course, a tweak like that would have to come from Respawn themselves, and they haven’t hinted at any major changes recently.
For now, though, at least you can use Pathfinder’s grapple hook to bring a loot tick closer to you, even if they are exceedingly rare to uncover.
