Game-breaking Apex Legends exploit lets you see through walls

Apex Legends players have discovered an exploit that essentially gives you a wallhack – provided you can ping the location of an enemy and have a digital threat scope to hand.

Players have flocked to Respawn Entertainment’s take on the battle royale genre as they look for something that isn’t Fortnite or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

While the game has proven to be immensely popular since releasing in February, it isn’t without its faults – as players regularly uncover bugs and glitch that range from game-breaking to small annoyances. However, another issue has been found that will give players a wallhack-like ability. 

Respawn EntertainmentApex has proven to be a hugely popular battle royale title.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user Lord_Spinkingham pointed out that pinging a structure with enemies on and then using a digital threat scope to locate them will let you see players through walls. 

The Redditor showcased this by showing off a gunfight between themselves and players upon a supply ship. As the video showed, Lord_Spinkingham was able to see players that had been using boxes for cover – and was even able to look through their own cover to see a perfect outline of where the enemies stood. 

While plenty of bugs can be a one-off instance, another poster chimed in on the video to explain that they’ve been able to pull off the same tactic with other weapons at other locations.

“Yeah, I noticed this with a rock in a match earlier, with a PK [Peacekeeper] though,” added Reddit user TorranceS33.

Members of the Apex Legends developer team are active in the subreddit, as they regularly provide updates on bugs and other issues, but it’s unknown if they have been made aware of this latest problem. 

Once it does come to their attention, though, it likely won’t take long for a fix to be in place considering that a wallhack-lite will give anyone that opts to use a massive advantage over their opponents.
