After being dormant for most of Season 1, the start of Apex Legends Season 2 has seen the Leviathans moving around and even stomping on unsuspecting players, but they deliver powerful loot if you’re quick enough.
However, if you’re in the right place at the right time, you can swoop in under a Leviathan’s foot and grab the loot it reveals, but only if you make the decision right away.
Reddit user azgadian said you only have six seconds from when the Leviathan lifts its foot until when it slams it back down.
If you’re able to time everything correctly, you could find yourself grabbing an important piece of loot, perhaps a Phoenix Kit like azgadian found. The key is just making sure you arrive just as the foot rises or else you might end up being crushed.
Don’t miss your window
If you aren’t paying attention, you might end up being squished like we saw happen to Reddit user SupaSnipaX’s opponent.
In the middle of a firefight, the Leviathan leg’s came crashing down and not only did it eliminate his enemy but also rewarded him with the kill.
That angle showed us what it looks like from the surviving player’s point of view but popular streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar showed us what it’s like to be crushed by one of the behemoths.
When he realized the Leviathan was preparing itself for the kill, Tim decided to sacrifice himself for the greater good.
Leviathans aren’t a joke this season so you’ll need to be wary of their roars and feet.
However, they represent a high-risk high-reward type situation so sometimes it’s worth taking a chance with them.
