Apex Legends dev threatens bans for infinite Rampage & Sentinel charge exploit
Apex Legends devs have confirmed they’re working on a fix for the infinite Rampage & Sentinel charge exploit and have even threatened abusers with a ban.
However, in early December, players discovered an exploit that allowed both guns to be infinitely charged. The method quickly spread around the community and soon it was becoming the norm in Ranked to see opponents abusing the glitch.
Although a fix was implemented on December 10, it wasn’t long before players had found a workaround and the bug had taken over the BR once again.
Now, Respawn devs have confirmed once again that they’re working on a fix but this time, they’ve even threatened abusers of the glitch with a ban.
Apex dev threatens bans for infinite charge bug abusers
Taking to Twitter on January 4, Producer at Respawn Josh Medina confirmed that the devs were working on a fix for the glitch and that it shouldn’t be long before the infinite charge exploits are gone for good.
This was great news for a lot of Apex fans, as the bug has become a serious issue in Ranked, with countless players abusing the exploit to gain an advantage over their opponents.
With today being the last day of our time off for the holidays… I can safely say I’m ready to get back to it and make some dope stuff come to life

The devs didn’t stop there, with Live Balance Designer John Larson suggesting that there may be consequences for those who abused the bug.
Taking to Twitter on January 5, he mentioned that although he doesn’t carry the “banhammer”, he’d look into taking action against the worst of the abusers.
Took a much needed break from working on and playing Apex and instead went outside for a couple weeks. IRL graphics go hard.
Infinite charge Rampage and Sentinel also go hard, but like, in a way less fun way. While I don’t personally carry a banhammer I’ll see what we can do… pic.twitter.com/ZU4TMzlQEm

As the glitch has been in the game for so long, it seems like it would be difficult to pinpoint which players deserve a ban, but we’ll just have to wait and see what Respawn decides to do.
Finally, at least it seems like the Rampage and Sentinel will return to their original state, and other weapons will be able to compete once again.
