Strange Apex Legends bug sends players sky-high while healing

A strange new bug in Apex Legends is sending players flying into the sky after they try to heal themselves with shield and health kits.

Apex Legends season three has been a strong return to form for Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale title, with players flocking to the new World’s Edge map to try out the brand-new location.

It hasn’t been completely smooth sailing for the game, though, as players have encountered numerous bugs and glitches that have affected their experience. A handful have been pretty game-breaking, but a new problem, revolving around healing, is quite literally sending players through the roof.

Respawn EntertainmentLifeline is Apex’s medic legend, but everyone needs to carry a health kit or two.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user RoadKillSkull showcased a video of a problem where they, and their teammates, were sent high into the sky after healing. 

In the video, the Redditor’s game seems to crash for a moment before they are sent skywards. Once there, the game shows that they are healing, but they actually aren’t. Instead, RoadKillSkull was left as a sky-high turret, trying to gun down enemy players – at least on their screen.

While that may seem like an advantage to some players, it didn’t quite work out that way as the Redditor was gunned down and sent flying back to their original spot inside of a cabin, but instead of healing, they were waiting for a revive.

While it’s a pretty big problem by itself, it’s not the only glitch that frustrates players who are trying to heal that has appeared recently.

Back on November 8, a twitch streamer by the name of Leovanthy uncovered an error where after being revived, players found themselves to unopen death boxes from enemies.

The Respawn development have, in the past, frequented the game’s subreddit and responded to issues that have caused frustrations for players.

However, they have yet to respond to this problem, so it remains to be seen if they are aware of it and if a fix is in the offing.

Season 8 is on the horizon and players are gearing up for all the new content Respawn has in store for them. With an overhaul to Kings Canyon and a brand new Legend being added to the roster, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Of course, new content is all well and good but what’s the point if you can’t look good while taking out your enemies. Well, as always, Respawn has revealed a range of new cosmetics set to arrive in the new season.

Apex’s Season 8 gameplay trailer, released on January 26, gives us a look at the brand new cosmetics we can expect to pick up at the start of February.

Here’s how Loba’s new skin shapes up in Season 8.

30-30 Repeater skin

Season 8’s new weapon is arriving with a bang with a stylish blue and golden weapon skin. If you’re a fan of the Repeater’s gunplay when it releases, this is a must-buy skin.

We expect this will be a Legendary skin.

Flatline skin

The Flatline will be receiving a new weapon skin for Season 8 and it’s fair to say it makes the weapon look incredibly deadly. The black spikes paired with the red coloration makes for an amazing skin design.

Longbow DMR skin (Legendary)

With reactive red effects radiating from this skin when the gun is shot, it’s obvious this is going to be a fan-favorite for players who are experienced with the DMR. You’ll have to rank up the battle pass to the very top for this one though.

Knowing Respawn, there’s bound to be a bunch more cosmetics revealed to players at the release of Season 8 on February 2. Hopefully, you’ve saved up some crafting metals as these new skins are not to be missed out on.

If any new cosmetics are revealed before the release of Season 8, we’ll update this article with all the latest.
