Game-breaking Apex Legends bug makes reviving impossible

Apex Legends fans have uncovered a game-breaking glitch that makes it impossible to revive a downed teammate even though it appears as if they’re walking instead of crawling. 

Since its surprising release back in February, Apex Legends has been able to make its mark in the battle royale scene by taking Fortnite, PUBG, and Call of Duty: Blackout head-on. 

However, even though it racked up over 50 million players and knocked Fortnite off its perch at one point, the game hasn’t been without issue. Players have noted abnormalities with the audio, weapon recoil, and it’s overall FPS output. Yet, a new problem has reared its head – and it’s about being unable to keep your team in the fight. 

Respawn EntertainmentOver 50 million players have dropped in for a taste of Apex Legends action.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user tracking_down showed off a clip from a recent game where they were attempting to revive a teammate during the late stages. As the Redditor attempted the gutsy revive, they were gunned down by a flanking enemy and knocked out of the game – waiting for a helping hand from their third team member.

However, instead of crawling around on the floor and using a knockback shield to defend themselves, the user was able to move around the map and head towards the other part of their trio – just without the use of a weapon or any grenades.

well that’s a new one from r/apexlegends

The Redditor’s final teammate, who was still in the midst of a gunfight with enemies, was seemingly confused at being unable to pull off a revive before being taken down themselves.

As the final kill came in, though, the glitched player could be seen falling to ground in the normal fashion of an elimination – almost as if no bug had just occurred on-screen and everything was just fine.

With Respawn gearing up for the long-awaited season three, which is called Meltdown, it’s unknown if they’re going to be tackling any major bugs prior to its release on October 1.

Members of the development team are active on the subreddit but haven’t quite come across the issue as of writing. Should they issue a response, however, you can be sure to find an update here.

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
