Apex Legends players have encountered an unusual bug that allows them to free cam while spectating teammates – peeking around corners and handing out helpful hints.
As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, players have been bumping into pretty strange bugs from update to update. Plenty of them have stopped fans from starting matches in the battle royale, while many others have completely ruined gunfights and sent players back to the pre-game lobby.
Yet, a few have also cropped up and given players a look at what Apex would be like Respawn Entertainment introduced third-person mode or let NPCs run wild during games. However, there is a new problem that might just take the cake.
The new issue revolves around players not being able to respawn and then having pretty much had a free cam view of the area surrounding their teammate.
It was noted by Reddit user Ethnic_Pencils who claimed that the respawn shop didn’t drop them off as intended and as a result, they were left to watch their partner for the game run around by themself.
As they were able to free cam around, it allowed the Redditor to peek around corners for their teammates – giving them a pretty handy leg up on the opposition would be stuck to the normal first-person view, whether they were alive or dead.
Other Apex fans noted they’ve run into the bug themselves but it isn’t always to do with the respawn ship not dropping them off again.
Some suggested that it should be the normal view for players once they are dead and spectating teammates, especially if the code is already in the game. Though, that would then likely cause complaints about having the ability to peek around corners for them.
Either way, if it isn’t intended to be in the game, it’ll have to be something that the Respawn investigates – if only to see if they can replicate it and get a fix sorted out.
On the other hand, however, it could very well be like the third-person glitch from seasons previous and we could be looking at a new LTM being in the works. We’ll just have to wait and see.
