New Apex Legends glitch lets players fly across the entire map

It would appear that Apex Legends is not experiencing a shortage of game-breaking glitches as a new bug found in the game is allowing players to fly across the map.

Despite its explosive success, Apex Legends continues to be littered with glitches and bugs, as well as players who exploit them to their advantage.

While many of these bugs are mild, a few are certainly game-breaking, to the point that they threaten the integrity of the game, such as this recently discovered flying glitch.

Twitch streamer demonstrates flying glitch

On April 12, Twitch streamer ‘higrad3snipez’ posted a clip in which he and his teammates were able to exploit a mechanic in the game to the point where they were able to fly across the map.

In the clip, the streamer can be seen punching a supply crate several times, before he and his teammates simply take off like rockets from a standstill position and get high enough into the air where nearly the entire map became visible.

How does this glitch work?

While the exact mechanics behind the glitch remain unknown, one user on Reddit noted that it resembled other “momentum storing glitches,” such as the one players use to run at a very high speed.

The user explained that the action of punching the supply cart in a way that didn’t allow the player’s body to recoil as it normally would resulted in momentum being stored, so that the next time the player jumps, the game releases all of that built up momentum and shoots the player straight into the sky.

Game-breaking glitches in Apex Legends

This flying glitch isn’t the first game-breaking glitch to be discovered in Apex Legends, and it likely won’t be the last.

In the past, bugs and exploits in the game have allowed players to continue shooting their weapon even after being knocked down, see through the Bangalore’s smoke grenades, run at very high speeds, and melee so fast that players were eliminated in seconds.

The game is still very young, of course, so stuff like this is expected to happen. But the developers at Respawn would do well do clean things up before these kinds of things get too out of hand.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix coming for frustrating Season 7 Clubs bug

The Apex Legends community has been encountering a bizarre bug that’s randomly kicking people out of their Club, even if they were the one to create the group in the first place – and Respawn is on the case.

The hyped Season 7 feature finally let Apex players initiate randos into recurring squadmates by inviting them into the social hub for friends. This was integrated for the purposes of growing communities and making teams easier to fill.

But now, some Club creators are getting kicked out of their own group and even finding that the guilds they made are getting deactivated with little explanation to account for.

While Clubs can get instantly deleted if they’re found with inappropriate names or the like, players have been reporting no such infractions while still getting ousted from their org.

Got removed from my own club that i created? my friend who is admin was not even online in the past few hours. and cant find any club if i click find club. Other clubs got deleted aswell? from apexlegends

“My club was up since Season 7 dropped,” user ‘IIIOxygenRSC’ wrote. “No offensive name or tag, no offensive text chat, usernames or anything. Logged onto apex today with a notification that said my club had been deleted by club admins. Anyone else or any idea why?”

It’s been happening more to different people, prompting Respawn Entertainment to take a closer look at what could be causing the problematic trend.

Clubs Designer at Respawn, Chad Armstrong gave a little comfort to people who’ve been dealing with the glitch: “Thanks for letting me know. We’re looking into this now.”

Now that the developers are on the case, it could soon lead to a meaningful fix to why people are getting met with a random ‘Exited Club’ notification as soon as they log into the game.

“Several players are reporting that they were removed from their club by the admins, even if THEY were the admins,” The Dot’s Pedro Peres said. “This is probably a major bug with Apex and I know Respawn will push out a fix for it ASAP.”

Though his incident was quickly resolved, more players have been wondering if that would be the case with them as well.

The Apex devs could be working on a speedy fix for Clubs to make sure their new Season 7 feature is working without a hitch.
