A confusing Apex Legends glitch is teleporting Revenant players across the entire map due to an awkward interaction with the Death Totem ability and moving trains.
The latest addition to Respawn’s battle royale roster, Revenant is a sneaky Legend that can momentarily escape death thanks to his Death Totem Ultimate.
Rather than teleporting back to the location of the ability, however, players have been sent to completely random areas due to a confusing bug.
Closing in on the final moments of a tense match, Twitch streamer ‘Fraelyne’ was among the final 22 players in the lobby. Hiding inside the train before it took off once again, the streamer set their Death Totem, entered Death Protection, and looked around outside for a few eliminations.
Heading onto the roof of the locomotive, they lost a gunfight, before fading away and being sent back. While they had obviously expected to appear back inside the now-moving train, the streamer was sent to a completely different place entirely.
“What the…umm,” the streamer said in complete shock as they almost walked off the map and into the lava below. “Where did you go?” a teammate asked.
Without explanation, they were teleported away from their squad and left to fend for themselves. Trying to comprehend the situation, a teammate suggested that the moving train is what led to the shocking displacement.
“I think what happened is they killed you, and you went back to your teleport thing, but because the train was moving forward it slingshotted you,” they said.
Able to utilize a nearby balloon and float back towards their team in no time, the streamer fortunately wasn’t separated for all too long.
This isn't the first time Revenant’s ultimate has led to teleportation glitches either -- others have been reporting similar issues since the character was released.
Players should look to avoid using the Death Totem on any moving surface until the issue is patched out, unless they really want to be sent to an entirely new part of World’s Edge, and potentially have to fight their way back to their team.
