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.

The Rampage LMG and Sentinel are fairly standard weapons at a glance, but their ability to be powered up in the middle of a skirmish makes them a real force to be reckoned with.

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.

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.

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.
