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 teams stop to play Cargo Bot volleyball and it’s hilarious

A couple of Apex Legends players have gone viral after they decided to stop their match to play a quick game of Volleyball on World’s Edge using Octane’s Jump Pad and the Cargo Bots. 

Given that the Apex Legends maps are pretty vast, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have got quite the playground to mess around in.

Yes, the name of the game is to be the last team standing, but you can also have some fun. That stretches all the way back to when the game launched, as players would reach the final circle and decide to finish things with a melee fight instead of using weapons and shields.

As time has gone on, we’ve seen other creative players come up with funny ideas too – some playing basketball with their abilities, and others deciding to try and play golf with the Tridents on Olympus. But now there’s a new one – Volleyball.

Apex players have got creative with what Respawn has given them.

The hilarious clip comes from Redditor BeanBag373_, who managed to get a few random opponents involved in their quite unusual plan. 

They managed to grab themselves a downed cargo bot without destroying it, and rolled it all the way up near the Epicentre where they had a Volleyball court set up using Octane’s jump pads and Pathfinder’s zipline. 

While you might think that they’d be sitting ducks and that someone might want to ruin the fun, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, more players saw what was going on and decided to join in – quickly figuring out what to do. It’s pretty funny, all in all, as the whole lobby got involved at the end.

Even though someone tried to take them down as the circle was closing in, the players didn’t stop their game. They carried on until just before the circle starts to become impossible to stand in. 

At that point, it devolved into chaos – slinging grenades, arc stars, and ultimates around. But ultimately, everyone involved had managed to magic up a viral moment and who knows what ideas it will inspire.
