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.
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.
