Stealthy Apex Legends player gets stuck in hiding spot with priceless results

One sneaky Apex Legends player found one of the best hiding spots in the game, but outplayed themselves by getting stuck – the end results are hilarious.

If you’re not an aggressive Apex Legends player, and you don’t like to push or get into heated confrontational battles, hiding spots are your saving grace for ambushing unsuspecting enemies.

You just have to make sure you don’t get stuck like this unfortunate soul did, especially if it’s in what’s arguably one of the best hiding spots in the entire game.

Stuck between a rock and a hard place

Reddit user ‘jeivY_’ shared his misfortune to the official Apex Legends subreddit, posting a clip titled ‘This is what I show my friends when they ask me how good I am in Apex.‘ In the video, the Bloodhound player jumps down a canyon cliff, before managing to land safely on a protruding rock.

The rock made for a perfect sniping or hiding spot, as it rendered the player pretty much hidden in plain sight from any opponents, as well as giving a wide view of the other side of the canyon – only problem is, how do they get back up?

A fellow Pathfinder squadmate shot his Zipline Gun down to the rock, creating a rope for jeivY_ to climb back up. You’d think it was an easy solution to a puzzling problem, but sadly, luck wasn’t on the their side. The player manages to climb the zipline back to the top, but not before completely missing his mark and flying over the other side of the cliff, accidentally killing themselves.

People absolutely loved it

The Apex subreddit went absolutely mad for the clip, finding it ridiculously funny. “I literally burst out laughing at work, in a very quiet room. I was rooting for you dude!!” one user said. “Also laughed out loud at work. In the bathroom. Awkward.” another replied.

“That pathfinder was a real bro though,” someone pointed out, loving the way his fellow squadmate tried to help. “He is the kind of robot that would revive you even in round 5,” jeivY_ replied wholesomely.

RedditPathfinder was a good teammate.

The hilarious clip truly is one of those ‘they had us in the first half, not gonna lie’ moments. Though people could probably make the hiding spot work if they could perfect their zipline landing.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

Apex legends will be moving to Olympus on Psamanthe for Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
