How to use grenades in Apex Legends to recreate Bangalore’s ultimate

An impressive Apex Legends clip shows one player using only hand-thrown projectiles to recreate Bangalore’s ultimate ability, earning them the win.

Since Apex Legends released back in February of 2019, a number of the game’s legends have established themselves as fan favorites. Alongside Wraith, Lifeline and Pathfinder, Bangalore is a popular legend, mixing discretion with firepower to make a truly formidable opponent. 

However, one Apex Legends player – ‘slader111’ – is seemingly dissatisfied with Bangalore’s ultimate, and sought to recreate it against the weapons specialist herself. 

Respawn EntBangalore is Apex Legends’ veteran soldier character.

In a viral clip posted to the Apex Legends subreddit, the player explained that they “decided to show Bangalore what real artillery looks like.”

Slader, who is playing Wraith, comes up against the final enemy team, one of whom is a Bangalore. The opponent quickly calls in her ultimate on Wraith’s location, but this only spurs Slader onto the offensive. 

The player reels off 4 Arc Stars and 4 Hand Grenades in quick succession, with impressive results. Not only do they rack up two kills, but they weaken the final enemy enough that Slader is able to quickly finish them off as they push up.

Other players appreciated the counter against Bangalore, but some compared the barrage of grenades to Gibraltar’s ultimate, which features more deadly explosives raining from the sky.

Bangalore’s rolling thunder typically isn’t as lethal, as the rockets deal less damage, but will stun and disorient anyone caught in their radius.

Projectiles have always been powerful in Apex Legends, but rely on the player being able to use them accurately and effectively. It’s fair to say that Slader did both, and showed up Bangalore with undeniable conviction.

Classic Apex Legends care package bug is plaguing games on Olympus

A classic Apex Legends care package bug has resurfaced in the ongoing Season 7, meaning it has now plagued every single one of the game’s maps – first Kings Canyon, then World’s Edge and now Olympus. 

A game as big and variable as Apex Legends was bound to be plagued by bugs from time to time, but players have grown increasingly frustrated with Respawn as more and more bugs not only affect gameplay, but return in multiple different seasons.

That is the case with this particular care package issue, which has previously surfaced on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. Unfortunately, it has now made a return in Season 7 and Olympus, despite efforts from Respawn to patch it in the past.

Lifeline might be a support legend, but her care packages can get teams out of tricky spots.

The glitch revolves around a care package spawning in a location slightly off the map’s customary boundaries. For example, it might be slightly below, on a couple of the large pipes that help to prop up the Olympus environment.

Pursuing the care package, which often contains top-tier loot, results in an instant death, as one Redditor unluckily found out.

Joking that they got ‘bamboozled’ by a care package, they hopped down below to take advantage of the loot on offer, only to be killed rapidly when hitting the area of the map the care package had nestled itself in.

It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident either, unfortunately. Another Reddit user shared a YouTube clip entitled ‘It’s a Trap!’

The video shows off an almost identical death, as the allure of top-tier weaponry is enough to provide the player with an instant and immensely frustrating death.

Respawn have not yet responded to the issue, but we expect to see small adjustments made to stop the issues from occurring. For the time being, though, avoid going for care packages that look like they’re in dangerous locations.
