Players dropping into a match of Apex Legends understand that crisp and diverse movement can be the difference between life or death, but not many have been making full use of the game’s wall jumping mechanic.

Respawn Entertainment launched their battle royale with an incredible cast of characters who each bring their own twist to King’s Canyon. Since the game’s February 4 release, players have been finding the best tricks and strats to improve their games.

Although wall jumping has been in the game since the beginning, a lot of players haven’t been fully utilizing the technique. By not doing so, they’re not using a whole tool in their arsenal to get the better of their opponents.

How to wall jump in Apex Legends

In a video, YouTuber ‘Mokeysniper’ made a compilation of how to perfect long and purposeful strides off most vertical surfaces while competing in the Apex Games.

  1. Sprint toward a “blank wall”
  2. Slide
  3. Jump
  4. Let go of “Forward
  5. Jump the moment you make contact with the wall

No two wall jumps are the same, and the YouTuber showed how to get a greater leap off the wall using some movement. As soon as the player gets out of their slide and jumps to toward the wall, “as soon as you leave the ground move into the direction you want to travel.”

While the YouTuber admitted that the wall jumping is certainly “niche,” the movement Mokeysniper displays in his video is impressive and would make anyone a harder target to gun down.

Movement is crucial in Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a fantastic battle royale that uses solid shooting mechanics, but upon launch some fans noted how clunky the movement could sometimes feel.

Since then players have been finding all sorts of techniques to move around King’s Canyon more effectively and creatively by bunny hopping, getting the faster drop speed at the start of a match, and so much more.

Outgunning an opponent is the best case scenario to win out in the Apex Games, but when caught in a dire situation mixing up your movement will make it more challenging to take you down.

Mastering every technique in Apex Legends like wall jumping could definitely help out to keep players in the game for a lot longer.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
