An Apex Legends fan has uncovered yet another insane easter egg in the Firing Range – allowing players to roam around the training map in third-person.

For the past few days, a lot of Apex Legends players have been caught up in the craze of finding easter eggs on the Firing Range map in training mode. Members of the Respawn development team revealed that there was a huge easter egg that nobody had uncovered, but since then, players have been finding lots of different ones. 

After spending countless hours looking for anything, we’ve seen players uncover the huge easter egg, locate secret areas, and even references to Star Wars, but the secrets haven’t stopped there.

RespawnApex Legends players have been searching Firing Range for every secret possible.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user JoshOyen showcased a video of how they managed to go into a third-person view with each of the game’s characters. 

By using Pathfinder, the Redditor grappled on to the champion banner on the right side of the map, before swinging round to a ledge that stands behind it. Once there, JoshOyen looked down and crouched in a small bush before then changing legend.

With that process complete, the Apex Legends fan was then free to roam the training map with a third-person view while switching between each legend and getting a clean look at the skins they’ve forked out for.

Of course, many fans were wowed that one of their own had uncovered yet another easter egg, but the discovery also prompted a response from the Respawn development team.

Lead Designer Jason McCord, who goes by the name MonsterClip, simply posted the side-eyes emoji in response – perhaps hinting that it could be a part of a bigger thing.

Apex dev Monsterclip weighed in on the discovery of the third person easter egg.

Now, with players dedicating hours into their search for secrets, it appears as if they’re going to scour every single inch of Firing Range to find something new.

Just how many other easter eggs are out there remains unknown but considering some of the creative secrets that Respawn have hidden so far, the possibilities could be endless.

Smart Apex Legends trick gives Horizon OP movement speed

Apex Legends players have got an interesting use for Horizon’s Gravity Lift tactical ability that could help her become a pain to deal with in tight spaces.

After all the rumors and speculation about Valk, Horizon joined the Apex Legends party with the start of Season 7, giving players the chance to tweak their playstyle thanks to her abilities. 

Her ultimate, the Black Hole is the star of the show as it gives Horizon and her teammates the chance to suck enemies towards them with a mini black hole, resulting in free damage and kills as the enemies struggle to crawl away from it. 

As for Horizon’s tactical, the Gravity Lift, it might bear a resemblance to Octane’s launch pad – given that you can use it to jump to higher spots. However, it might be more powerful if you need to outplay an enemy while in a tight space.

Season 7 also introduced Horizon to the roster of Legends in the game.

As Reddit user loseryeet shows, instead of using the Gravity Lift to propel yourself to another spot, it’s actually better to use the air strafe speed boost that you get from it to outplay an opponent. 

If you toss the Gravity Lift down under, say one of the floating homes at Estates or Gardens, you can simply use the floor above you to control your movement instead of blasting off into the sky. 

It might be a quite situational tip, given that you’d need to be in a part of the map where your head can pretty much hit a roof of a floor, but the speed boost you get – as seen in loseryeet’s video – is pretty great and can leave your opponents bamboozled.

As situational as it is, you will still need to have some solid movement skills in your back pocket, otherwise, you’ll go flying off to one side and give your enemy a chance to win the gunfight. 

If you manage to master the situational tip, you’ll definitely get a leg up on some foes, plus, you’ll be able to look out for it if someone tries to use it against you.
