Fresh off all the details of Apex Legends Season 2, the developers are pushing a patch through today that addresses some of the nagging issues players have been complaining about.

Apex Legends unveiled what to expect with its second season during EA Play 2019, including a new weapon, a new Legend named Wattson, and even some lore about the game itself.

The developers at Respawn didn’t go into great detail about much else but we can now confirm the game isn’t being left out in the rain until Season 2 launches. If you’re looking for a bunch of brand new content before Season 2, this is not the patch you’re looking for.

This isn’t the most exciting patch to ever come to Apex by any means, but it’s certainly something fans will appreciate as it brings some much-needed fixes such as a bug that allowed for Caustic’s Gas Traps to damage players through walls.

There are a few other issues that were rolled out with this patch, including a PS4-specific one, that you can view more in-depth below in the patch notes.

On top of this patch, Respawn says they will be providing an update on the list of known issues before the week is over so players are able to keep an eye on other fixes that are still being looked at.

If there are some other major issues that need to be looked at, you can probably expect another minor patch like this to hit before the official start of Season 2. As revealed at EA Play, Season 2 of Apex Legends kicks off on July 2, where we can surely expect a major patch to coincide with the launch.

How to get super jump with Octane’s jump pad in Apex Legends

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  1. Place an Octane jump pad
  2. Melee attack right before stepping onto the pad
  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
