Rampart Amped Cover bug is making Apex Legends crash

A Season6 bug with Rampart’s tactical ability ‘Amped Cover’ is reportedly causing some Apex Legends players’ game to crash when doubling up on the walls in the same spot.

With the new Season 6 update, the Apex community are getting creative in order to stress test the latest Legend, Rampart, and all of the lethal gadgets she’s bringing to World’s Edge. This includes strategies or set-ups that might not seem viable, but are attempted in the Arena all the same.

As people discover the best ways to work with her ability kit, there have been some combinations that apparently don’t play too well with Respawn’s program.

This has caused issues for players like user ‘aya-moon’ who encountered a strange interaction that makes Apex literally unplayable since it creates a “problem processing game logic.”

Rampart’s Amped Cover tactical has been found to cause some crashes.

“When two Rampart [Amped Covers] are placed and shot through, the player disconnects,” they said. “[It] happened in a real game and tested it out in Firing Range.”

Sure enough, in their uploaded clip, aya-moon reconstructs the situation with one Amped Cover directly behind another. To have a control in this experiment, they placed a single tactical right next to them and shot right through it.

As expected, Rampart’s wall worked as it was meant to with a single wall up, but that wasn’t the case for the next shot fired just a couple of feet apart from the first one.

Almost instantaneously, the P2020 round that was supposed to pierce both walls made the game stall, eventually crashing the player out of the practice tool. The game returned a message saying: “There was a problem processing game logic. Please try again.”

In recreating the experiment on PC, many people saw that only the first wall remains intact while the other ones get destroyed. Players kept seeing experience the same issue over again, although some maintained that the walls in general use could also cause a crash.

It’s unclear what could be causing these problems, but if Rampart keeps crashing Apex Legends for some people, Respawn could start investigating it in the coming days.

Apex Legends player turns pretending to be an MRVN into a 1000 IQ play

One Apex Legends player’s role-playing adventure as one of MRVN NPC’s found on the map actually worked out quite well for them and could be a sneaky strategy to watch out for going forward.

Look, sometimes MVRN’s aren’t even worth your time to loot. They don’t really drop a lot unless you can attach one of their arms. However, that makes them prime bait material — because who knew Pathfinder could become Mirage?

Reddit user ‘warartic’ has showed off the ingenious decoy mechanic using the MVRNs scattered around the map to pull a fast one on an opponent, and all it took was a clever name and choosing Pathfinder as their legend.

Pathfinder is technically an MVRN, but with a lot more personality.

In the clip, the player, named “I’m MVRN” stands completely still with Pathfinder as enemies battle it out around them, and somehow none of the other players seem to suspect a thing.

Inside the final circle, most players amazingly don’t even give the imposter a second look. There is one Bloodhound who’s so close to getting it, and starts shooting them, but doesn’t do enough to finish them off. Apparently, they were satisfied that the lack of any reaction made what they were shooting an NPC.

The battle unfolds around the disguised player for over a minute until they finally decide to spring their trap at the perfect moment. With just one other squad left, they break character and go to eliminate the enemy Bangalore getting up her teammate, sealing the victory in one of the most hilarious and ridiculous ways we’ve seen lately.

Thankfully, it’s easy to tell whether or not it’s an actual MVRN or just a sneaky player trying to pull a fast one. First off, upon closer inspection Path is much more streamlined and rounded compared to the NPC versions, who will also have a green, glowing light on their face.

Non-player MVRN’s will also just be called “MVRN” on their nametag, nothing else, and react to you when you find them, some are also lootable as well. If you just see a suspicious-looking robot standing completely still in the corner of a room, go ahead and light it up, just to be safe.

You certainly don’t want to be the one caught by this strategy, which is apparently effective enough to score wins all on its own. So, take an extra second and make sure any MVRN actually isn’t a player in disguise, and you should be safe from an embarrassing elimination like this.
