Apex Legends players have got a handy trick that anyone can use if you happen to come up against a downed enemy who is blocking your path through a door.

Anyone who has ventured into the world of Apex Legends knows just how it annoying it when you down an enemy but can’t finish the job. They can easily slide away to their teammates, get revived, and turn the tables on you.

It’s also incredibly annoying when you’ve got them downed but instead of them high-tailing it to a waiting teammate, they lay down in front of you and restrict your path. This can be even more infuriating when you’re inside a building.

However, some players have got a neat trick that every Apex Legends fan should know that will you get rid of a downed enemy who is blocking a door.

You don’t always have to eliminate an enemy with a finisher.

It comes courtesy of Reddit user LEtheD13, who points out that by starting and then canceling certain finishers, you can pretty much toss an enemy out the way.

That’s right, if you trigger certain finisher animations on a downed enemy, and then cancel it before you eliminate them, they will be moved out of your way in a flash. 

That means that you’re not a sitting duck while finishing the kill and your path has been opened so that you can chase down their teammates. Though, as noted, the animation only comes through certain canceled finishers, so you might have to experiment with a few different ones first.

As mentioned, with it only working for a few certain finishers, it’s not known if this is a strange animation bug or something that Respawn intended to happen. 

Either way, however, if it is intended, you won’t have to worry about them fixing it. Though, if they do roll out a fix, it won’t be the end of the world either.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  2. Melee attack right before stepping onto the pad
  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
