Puzzling Apex Legends glitch teleports Revenant across World’s Edge

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.

Revenant’s Death Totem should teleport players back to its point of origin.

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.

Revenant might want to avoid trains moving forward.

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.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
