Revenant Death Totem bug sends players to Apex Legends “hell”

A damning bug in Apex Legends has sent a player under the guise of the Death Totem sinking to a nightmarish hellscape, and it looks pretty awesome.

Several previous bugs in the popular battle royale game have sent players underneath the map, both on Kings Canyon and in World’s Edge. But, a combination of the effects from Revenant’s resurrection ultimate and the molten landscape near Thermal Station created a jarring scene ripped from Dante Alighieri’s Inferno.

Community members point to a known bug that has to do with the moving train that the player was on and being displaced backward by the ultimate’s respawn.

In the clip posted by ‘cltyreemu1,’ Revenant can be seen taking on the ultimate’s effect before heading into action against another team on the train.

“Glad to see they still haven’t patched this.. Smh,” Reddit user ‘JayG941’ said of the bug. “Happens when you put a totem on a moving train.”

Running straight into a 2v1 situation with the Death Totem’s half-health and no armor, they were in for a quick revival shortly after making their presence known.

Just as the last tick of health ran dry, their minimap showed they had flung to a place outside the perimeter of the ring. A place void of any landmarks, sans the cliffs of brimstone amid an ocean of fire.

However, Cltyreemu1 seemed fine with it: “The totem yeeted me straight to hell.”

After bugging out of the surface of the map, they even went under “hell”. They just kept falling, and looking back at their fallen teammate’s locator revealed they were over 1300m away.

The Death Totem on a moving train could be a bad mix.

More players reported a similar situation where the totem “yeeted me 1k away from the train I placed it on. Such a trip!”

There’s almost no ultimate ability in Apex that goes well with the moving train on World’s Edge. While Revenant’s Death Totem sounds ideal on the moving platform, it can obviously backfire at a moment’s notice.

If the bug keeps cropping up through more games, it could be something the Apex Legends developers put on their list of issues to address for a future update.

Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.

Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.

Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
