Strange Apex Legends bug traps players inside invisible Gibraltar dome

A pretty unusual Apex Legends bug is turning Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection invisible and trapping players inside of it until the ring swallows them whole. 

Though plenty of new characters have been introduced in Apex Legends, many of the starter legends are still fan-favorites. That includes Gibraltar – the Shielded Fortress. 

The defensive legend is all about protecting his team – be through his own Gun Shield, the Dome of Protection, or his Defensive Bombardment Ultimate. However, it appears as if there is a pretty major problem with his dome, as players have found that they’re seemingly unable to leave the dome when the ring is closing in on them.

The problem was showcased by Redditor LightPrism, who showed that they appeared to be stuck inside an invisible version of the Gibraltar dome that just timed out moments earlier. 

The Gibraltar player was able to pick up loot that was on the floor and run around in a tight space, but once they reached where the edge of the dome would be, the defensive character would start climbing as if a wall was in their way. 

Having one of the final circles closing in on them while being stuck inside proved to be a recipe for disaster for LightPrism as they were eliminated from the game, only being able to watch on as enemy players sprinted past them.

Some players suggested that the Redditor had, actually, become stuck in an invisible wall due to a clipping issue with the set of rocks behind them. Though, others weren’t so sure that was the case, adding that there had to be a new problem with Girbaltar’s dome instead.

While members of the Respawn have previously commented on similar issues on the subreddit, they haven’t chimed in on this one, so we’ll just have to wait and see if they’ve got a bug to fix with Gibraltar or with the Kings Canyon map.

Apex Legends leaks reveal Pathfinder Town Takeover coming in Season 7

Pathfinder will be the next Apex Legends character to get a Town Takeover, and the first to have their own personalized POI on new map Olympus, according to playtester images that have leaked ahead of the Season 7 update.

Town Takeovers are one of the most exciting events in Apex Legends. Not only do they bring new lore and backstories for their focal legend, but they also add special points of interest to the battle royale map as well, branded in unique ways.

Octane, Wraith, and Crypto have already enjoyed Town Takeovers on Kings Canyon, while Apex Legends’ second map, World’s Edge, hosted Mirage and Bloodhound events over the past few seasons. Now it looks like it’s finally Pathfinders turn.

Pathfinder looks set to become the first Apex Legends character with a Town Takeover on Olympus.

According to leaked playtester images shared by dataminer Biast12, the loveable robot will be getting a huge POI when Apex Legends shifts to new map Olympus in Season 7. 

The new Pathfinder point of interest will be a massive boxing arena.

In the leaked POI image, which is slightly blurry and back-and-white, Pathfinder can be seen wearing his heirloom gloves, and posing on a poster emblazoned with his name. The circle building behind it certainly looks like a sports stadium too.

Biast12 also said the leaked image only shows “part of [the whole] Pathfinder’s Town Takeover.” There is also allegedly a stadium “on the other side of the wall.”

Considering it’s just a single image that’s leaked so far, it’s tough to get a good picture of what the Town Takeover may actually look like. Biast12 did tease it could have “a bunch of zip lines everywhere” after replying to one fan’s comment.

When will Pathfinder’s Town Takeover start?

The Pathfinder Town Takeover will be in Season 7, and appears to be hosted on Olympus. Beyond that, however, a possible start date for the event is a little hazy.

The Mirage Voyage point of interest is the closest Town Takeover date-wise that we have to go off. It was released on Dec. 12, 2019, two months into Season 3. If Respawn sticks to the same formula, we could see Pathfinder’s arena at a similar time of year.

In fact, it could basically be bang on the same week. Season 7 arrives on Nov. 4 ⁠— yes, it’s still set for then, despite a little update scare this week ⁠— and eight weeks after that lands on Tuesday, December 8. That’s about as close as you can get!

Town Takeover teasers usually start earlier too. We may start to see Pathfinder teasers for the arena in mid-November, once we’ve settled into life on Olympus.

Pathfinder fans will be loving Apex Legends Season 7, from the sounds of it.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for official confirmation from Respawn about the exciting new takeover. The developers have never commented on Town Takeover leaks before, so the first time we see anything new could be in-game on Dec. 8.

Whether they comment or not, however, it looks like there’s a lot of exciting new content on the way at the start of next month. Season 7 will finally arrive, along with a new Legend, a brand-new map, vehicles, clubs, and more.
