Despite being out for several months now, many players are still discovering Apex Legends tricks, such as this one that allows you to throw grenades further as Octane just by using his Stim ability.

Octane is the newest Legend to come to Apex, meaning players have spent the least amount of time with him - which means there are still numerous ins and outs to be learned with the character.

Even some of the most seasoned Apex Legends players might not realize that coupling Octane's Stim ability with grenade throwing actually allows you to chuck a grenade much farther than usual.

Steroids and grenades are a great combo

As it turns out, using a combo of his Stim ability and grenades provides devastating results, and could allow you to pull off a play you would usually think is impossible.

This tactic was pointed out by Reddit user Michael_D6 and confirmed by others in the replies, claiming that Octane does, indeed throw his grenades further while under the effects of the juice.

The description of Octane's Stim ability only mentions that he moves 30% faster for six seconds and nothing else. Players also discovered that he is able to scale walls faster than usual. 

When you couple this with his Launch Pad Ultimate, Octane very easily rivals Pathfinder as one of the more mobile Legends in the game and makes a great addition to any squad.

Who's coming after Octane?

Season 2 of Apex Legends will be bringing a variety of new content including map changes, new weapons and a new Legend.

The new Legend is something that will get fans most excited, and Twitch streamer shroud says he has played the new character, but warns that fans shouldn't get their hopes up too high.

While Respawn never actually confirmed who the new Legend is, many signs are pointing towards it being Wattson.

All of our questions about Season 2 could be answered as soon as EA Play 2019, where Respawn will be unveiling what to expect in Season 2.
