Apex Legends players have uncovered a spot inside Labs that is sending their game into a spin and crashing repeatedly – leading them to be a free kill for enemy players.

At the start of Apex Legends Season 5, Kings Canyon’s Singh Labs – more commonly referred to as just Labs – saw a number of changes to both its interior and exterior in order to make it a “viable landing spot.”

As a result of the changes, the area is now a haven for players who are looking to get into early fights – even if they can’t find much loot and have to melee each other. However, a new problem has arisen with a spot inside that is apparently causing players’ games to repeatedly crash.

Lots of Kings Canyon has changed in Apex Legends Season 5, but some areas have stayed the same.

The new issue was pointed out by Reddit user WackyHat, who showcased a video from a recent trios game on Kings Canyon. As their trio was sat inside Labs, you’d be forgiven for thinking their video was frozen as there was barely any movement.

Though, as the trio shuffled towards a certain corner, WackyHat was sent back to the main menu and greeted with an error message. Even though they were able to rejoin their teammates the Redditor watched on as they were also disconnected.

As WackyHat jumped back into the corner once more, their game was frozen – seemingly on their way to another disconnection.

So uhh me and my squad were just vibin in the labs and we went to this corner and got kicked multiple times from apexlegends

As the Redditor noted that it had happened a few more times to their team later, others pointed out that they’d experienced similar problems inside Labs – leading to multiple crashes for themselves and their teammates.

Others noted that it could be a problem with weapons and death boxes being too close to the wall that is sending the game into a spin.

However, regardless of what is causing the issue, it is certainly one that Respawn will want to investigate.

If players have to avoid a certain part of the map for the fear of crashing, that could have some pretty big ramifications on matches – especially when it comes to having a potentially bugged spot inside the safe zone.

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.
