Ridiculous Apex Legends bug gives the Devotion back-breaking recoil

A bizarre bug with the Devotion LMG in Apex Legends gives the weapon a recoil kick that just keeps on going, giving players a unique perspective in the game.

The glitch seems to be purely visual from the game’s end, meaning it shouldn’t have any hindering effects on anyone during a match. In fact, Reddit user ‘TheBETAboi,’ who noticed the bug, went into the Firing Range to demonstrate how funny it looks in practice.

Even among some of the heavier guns in the game, the Devotion already has some of the most potent recoils for a gun. But the bug just lets the gun’s kick go to an obnoxious level of consequence, seeing as the gun just keeps going up.

The Devotion LMG has a bug that gives the recoil an insane kick.

While standing still, the player can be seen shooting a bullet at a time with a fully loaded Devotion without any attachments equipped.

“I noticed a few interesting things about the Devotion’s recoil today,” they quipped.

The clip shows him demonstrating three different perspectives of the bug, one while aiming down the sight, one while hip firing, and another hip fire angle while looking as far up as possible.

The first angle showed a comical result of looking up while aiming down the Devotion’s sights. Due to the bug, the recoil kept going back with every shot.

Usually, the recoil briefly displaces the player’s perspective while stopping at a certain point or resetting for the next shot. But this time, the camera kept going further making the player get a unique perspective of the Firing Range.

The clip’s thread was filled with Apex community members baffled at what they say, and user ‘Random_Name_0K’ joked: “You broke your spine mate.”

Though you can’t see it, there’s a Devotion being shot in this still.

Other angles of the bug showed the gun perpetually tilting skyward and even going so far up that it wasn’t on the player’s screen anymore.

Though the only thing that managed to stop the bug’s progression was the limit of the Devotion’s magazine, this looks like a harmless bug on the visual end of the game.

With The Old Ways Lore event just kicking off, look for Respawn to do small bug fixes periodically, which could include a fix for this issue.

Rampart has been a little underwhelming since joining the Apex Legends roster, but she’s in for a nice buff in the Season 7 update and fans have been trying to guess what it might include.

Apex Legends introduced Rampart back in Season 6, and although she seemed enticing at first, she quickly fell out of favor.

Players voiced their concerns on social media, describing her as ‘weak’ and ‘broken.’ “Am I tripping or is she seriously weak?” said a player in a Reddit thread. “She is one of the worst in the game,” said another.

Of course, it’s not all whining and complaining. One player took it a step further and tried to pinpoint exactly what he thought the problem was. “Her accuracy on the turret is broken,” he said. The list goes on, and on, and on. Most of the criticism seems to revolve around her ultimate. The consensus is that while her minigun makes her powerful, it leaves her vulnerable.

As a discussion took place over what players can expect in the October 22 update, a user on Reddit said they would “love to hear about Rampart’s buff.” They also wanted to know about potential Mirage changes.

Respawn game designer Daniel Klien, who focuses on Legend changes, responded, saying, “Both of those are in! Keep an eye out for the patch notes; I don’t wanna spoil stuff before.”

Apex Legends comment on reddit about Rampart buffs

Nobody knows exactly what the buff will entail, but it’s fair to say that players would be open to just about anything at this point. Some of the suggestions have been great, so it’s possible that one or more of them will come to fruition.

Potential Rampart buffs?

It’s erupted into quite a discussion, and players have bounced around ideas on how she can be improved.

Some suggested she should be able to hold her minigun like a heavy weapon but with a small movement penalty. That way, she’d be less vulnerable and it would fix the issue.

Others thought that would be a bit much and potentially make her overpowered. Instead, they think she should be able to pick up and drop the minigun at will. 

Either way, Apex Legends players have made it pretty clear that Rampart needs a buff. Thankfully, their prayers have been answered.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to begin on November 10!
