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.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers have been putting the hours in to give themselves an edge over their opponents.

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

  1. Sprint
  2. Slide when you have gained enough momentum
  3. While remaining crouched, jump
  4. While holding the D key, move your mouse to the right
  5. As soon as you land, jump again
  6. 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.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
