Strange Apex Legends bug makes looting impossible

Apex Legends players have run into a new bug that is preventing them from looting death boxes and via Loba’s ultimate ability even when they already have loot in their inventory. 

Just like every other battle royale on the market, Apex Legends follows the simple principle of find a landing spot, loot up, get kills, and be the last team or player standing. Respawn have added in different wrinkles with things like the abilities of legends but it is pretty much your typical battle royale.

However, if your ability to loot and get your hands on some better items than what you’ve already got, it isn’t going to be a smooth ride – and that cruel fate has been falling upon some players in the battle royale.

Being able to loot is pretty key in Apex.

Apex player Komil85 showed off a video from one of their recent games where their ability to loot was pretty much completely taken away.

Looking to get some upgraded loot, the Gibraltar user approached Loba’s Black Market Boutique ultimate but when they got into the abilities menu, they were greeted with nothingness. They couldn’t even loot a box of heavy ammo for their Prowler.

However, Komil85’s problem wasn’t limited to using Loba’s Ultimate. The Redditor even tried to loot a purple death box but was greeted with the menu of nothingness. They were, however, able to pick up loot that their teammates dropped. 

Somehow my game was bugged where I was unable to see anything to loot from apexlegends

A number of similar different issues with looting have been uncovered in the past, with the most notable being the use of the ‘Ninja’ controls layout. Though, it is unknown if that issue could have affected Komil85.

If the issue becomes more widespread, Respawn would have to take action – just imagine Apex games where you couldn’t loot past your original landing spot? It wouldn’t be pretty. 

For now, we’ll just have to keep an eye on it in case the problem affects others.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  1. Place an Octane jump pad
  2. Melee attack right before stepping onto the pad
  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
