Holo-spray exploit makes Octane’s stim even faster in Apex Legends

Apex Legends players have uncovered an exploit with Octane’s Stim ability and his Holo Spray that seemingly allows the daredevil to get an even bigger speed boost than normal. 

Even though Apex Legends Season 6 has brought Rampart, countless map changes, cosmetics, and changes to the loot pool, it has also brought a few problems along with it as well. 

While players have been quick to find exploits with using Rampart’s turret, there are also bugged skins, and audio issues that are running rampant during matches. 

However, fans have also uncovered a new exploit that allows Octane to get an even greater speed boost than normal while using his Stim ability.

While the high-speed daredevil already gets a decent boost while his Stim is activated, players have found that if they time a Holo Spray at the right time, Octane’s speed boost appears to be even greater than normal. 

As Reddit user Benavas explains, by timing the ability and holo spray together just as Octane’s previous Stim is just about to run out, they can carry on running for a little bit longer – chaining Stims together to run across the map.

Obviously, it can be pretty difficult to time right but getting the timing spot on means that Octane would become a pretty elusive target if the player is able to chain one after another. Though, if he is down pretty low on health, you could take him down with a pinpoint shot.

Given that it could present a pretty big problem for players who fighting against Octane, Respawn might just have to patch this in the coming weeks. 

As of writing, the devs have confirmed that they’re working on fixing the “useless” knockdown shields, but this problem hasn’t been added to the list, so we’ll just have to wait and see what they do in regards to it.

Cocky Apex Legends cheater banned after streaming hacks on Twitch

An Apex Legends hacker, ‘Loide90,’ has been exposed and swiftly banned after brashly streaming on Twitch, face cam and all, with obvious wall hacks enabled.

It’s one thing to feel emboldened enough to infuriate opponents and risk bans by hacking in a video game. It’s entirely another beast of brazen confidence to stream those hacks live on Twitch to over 700 viewers while casually hanging out with your face cam turned on.

As it turns out, an Apex Legends streamer, Loide90, boasts such levels of unabashed self-assuredness. During an October 25 stream, he was exposed for nonchalantly using wallhacks during a fairly busy broadcast.

And no, these were not Bloodhound’s brand of temporary superior visibility, restricted by cooldowns and location, as Loide90 could simply see vibrant, red enemy silhouettes through walls permanently. Since the exposure, he has apparently been banned on both Twitch and in the popular battle royale from Respawn Entertainment.

With numerous people taking to Twitter to call out Loide90’s untoward behavior, other streamers even got in on the action. One peer, by the name of ‘noobkingsmith,’ was watching the hacker live, granting viewers a chance to clip the cheats from someone else’s channel and thereby ensuring the clip wouldn’t be so easily deleted.

Clipped by ‘VixTrilogy’ and shared on Twitter with Respawn tagged directly, it was actually another tweet that appears to have gotten the developers’ attention and led to the eventual ban. 

After ‘Jonny,’ a professional player for SoaR, posted a clip showing how he died to the hacker, Respawn Producer Josh Medina responded confirming the cheater had been banned and that it wasn’t his first transgression.

Numerous others had tagged Medina and the dev followed up by letting the community know what a Twitch search for Loide90’s account also confirms: the account is banned. 

“I told him this would happen before banning one of his alts.” As Medina explains, he apparently had tried to broach the subject with Loide before and, with his warnings unheralded, was once again forced to ban the brash cheater.

It appears that the hacker’s Twitch account has been banned and, although it has yet to be confirmed, one has to imagine that his EA account for Apex Legends has also been purged.
