Clever Pathfinder trick makes Apex Legends looting a breeze

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.

Supply bins are one of the more common ways to find loot in Apex Legends.

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. 

Have we always been able to grapple loot ticks to ourselves!?! from apexlegends

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.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.

The long-awaited skin is finally returning, Respawn has confirmed.

For those who don’t know, Wraith’s Airship Assassin skin is a recolor of the pink Void Specialist skin, so you’ll need to unlock both of them in order to rock it.
