How to use Pathfinder’s grapple as Gibraltar in Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has uncovered a pretty hilarious bug that allows Gibraltar to use Pathfinder’s zipline abilities. 

Ever since Apex Legends launched back in February of 2019, players have been finding bugs and other hilarious mistakes inside Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale title.

Some have been bigger than others – with fans chasing shadows around the firing range training mode to uncover a big mystery with the dummies. Others, though, have been slightly more unintentional – with players struggling to get into games while a map doesn’t load or being able to switch characters to play in third-person mode

Respawn EntertainmentGibraltar is already considered one of the strongest legends in Apex Legends.

Now, Reddit user lolipop69696969 has shown how, by swapping characters a few times, players can use Pathfinder’s zipline and hook abilities with Gibraltar, making the legend even more powerful than usual.

As per the Redditor, players have to use three different characters  – Revenant, Gibraltar, and Pathfinder – to make it work. Using Revenant, you have to call upon his Death Totem ultimate but quickly swap and enter Death Protection mode as Gibraltar.

Once that’s done, players have to start running and then swap to Pathfinder mid-run before running outside of the Totem’s limit. After a few seconds, Death Protection will wear off and the abilities will have swapped over.

How to give Gibraltar a grapple in Apex Legends

  1. Use Revenant’s Death Totem ultimate
  2. Enter Death Protection mode as Gibraltar
  3. Runaway from the Death Totem and switch to Pathfinder mid-run
  4. Exit the Death Totem’s area limit and wait
  5. You will now have Pathfinder’s abilities.

This is how you can activate the bug/Easter egg thing. This bug made a laugh ngl! from apexlegends

Now, as the player showed, the bug clearly works while in the Firing Range training mode but it is not going to work in a normal match seeing as you can’t change character mid-game.

Of course, it could always be Respawn laying the groundwork for a pretty interesting LTM – training mode secrets have done that before. Though, seeing Gibraltar flying around World’s Edge would probably cause a bit of fury from some players.

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
