Crazy Valkyrie ‘super launch’ exploit throws players across the map in Apex Legends
A new Valkyrie Ultimate exploit has been discovered in Apex Legends that launches players across the entire map in a matter of seconds.
Over the past few seasons, Valkyrie has risen up to become one of the strongest characters in Apex Legends, sitting at an impressive 10% pick rate.
With unmatched mobility from her jetpack, AoE disruption from her Tactical, and of course her ability to scan beacons as a Recon Legend, the Winged Avenger can offer a tremendous amount of power to any squad.
However, despite all of these strengths, it’s her Ultimate that receives the most praise as it makes it possible to reposition an entire squad in an instant and escape dangerous situations.
Well, if that wasn’t powerful enough, a new exploit has been discovered that allows Valkyrie to propel her teammates across the map at insane speeds, using her Skyward Dive.
Valkyrie Ultimate exploit propels players across the map
Apex Legends YouTuber RossBobSquirrel has discovered an exploit involving Valkyrie’s Ultimate that makes it possible to launch a teammate across the entire map in seconds.
Following a number of specific steps, any teammates that are attached to Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive will be propelled forward at an unbelievable speed, allowing them to travel huge distances.

While accurate enemies can track the movement of a typical Valk Ultimate and land some shots, this exploit makes it impossible for opponents to output any damage on those using Skyward Dive.
It’s worth noting that Valkyrie does not receive a boost from this glitch, only the attached teammate attached the Ultimate. So, anyone using this exploit will be isolated from their squad, making them a vulnerable target.
While this exploit isn’t extremely powerful, it does have its uses for escaping enemy squads or transitioning to the other side of the map.
However, as it’s unlikely to provide players with a significant advantage, the devs probably won’t make it a priority to fix this anytime soon.
Keep in mind, though, that Respawn has been cracking down on players using exploits and glitches, so using this bug in-game may result in your account being banned or temporarily suspended.
