If you want to be harder to hit and heal while moving faster in Apex Legends, then bunny hopping is the ideal solution – but it can take a bit of practice.
Since the hugely popular game’s release on February 4, players have been jumping in and out of Kings Canyon searching for hints and tricks that may give them a slight advantage over their fellow legends.
Some have discovered how to reload that slightly bit faster during a gunfight, while others have found tricks that pertain to one particular Legend. However, bunny hopping isn’t locked to one character and can be done by all players – providing they know how to.
So, to bunny hop across King’s Canyon, players need to initiate into a slide, before jumping and then each time you hit the ground after that, immediately jumping again.
How to bunny hop in Apex Legends
- Slide when you have gained enough momentum
- While remaining crouched, jump
- While holding the D key, move your mouse to the right
- As soon as you land, jump again
- While holding the A key, move your mouse to the left.
Note: You must use hold to crouch option, not toggle to crouch, for bunny hopping to work.
A good tip is to keybind the jump button to something other than space – for example mouse scroll wheel down/up. This way, you won’t have to time your spacebar presses so much, which can be tricky.
While doing all of that, continue to hold whatever key or button you use to crouch – while also moving in the direction you want to go. While that may seem terribly complicated, it’s not, and there are a few indicators for how to get the perfect timing down.
Take the mechanic for a whirl in training mode while holding a gun – as this will make things much easier. While in the air, the on-screen crosshair will spread out but when you hit the ground, the crosshair will close in on itself.
To get the timing down properly, you should barely be able to see the crosshair close in before you want to jump again and continue hopping. To make it even more difficult, you can heal at the same time – provided you have enough free fingers to hit the buttons you need.
While bunny hopping isn’t going to affect your Legends current hitbox all that much, it will absolutely make you harder to hit during games as enemies will struggle to line-up accurate shots at you.
Failing that, you can always still run across the map before getting wiped out by a round of R-301 shots.
