Apex Legends players have discovered a bizarre bug that teleports them to random locations on the map using Revenant’s Death Totem ultimate ability.
Revenant was added to Apex Legends in February 2020 as part of the launch of Season 4, featuring new weapons, map updates and, of course, a new Legend, with an ultimate ability that could become a crutch once people figure out how to use it effectively.
Revenant’s Death Totem ultimate gives players protection from death for 30 seconds – if your health is depleted, rather than dying you’ll simply respawn at the Death Totem, albeit with very little health left. That wasn’t quite the case though for Reddit user P-Soup.
P-Soup hopped on the train as it traveled west out of the Epicenter/Fragment East areas of the map, and quickly used his Death Totem in case anybody got the better of them while taking the fast route across the map.
Within a few seconds, Soup and his teammates were in a gunfight, and he ended up getting beaten by the opposing player.
But, rather than respawn at the Death Totem just a few yards behind him, the Revenant player ended up dropping into the map on the north-west side of the map at Hill Valley, around the Skyhook area. Immediately you can see him looking around, trying to figure out how or why he ended up so far away.
Based on where Soup and his squad were on the map, we can presume they hadn’t been anywhere near Skyhook for the duration of that game, so it’s hard to see why the game would put him there unless it was a completely random drop.
A lot of people in the comments suggested it could be something to do with the train, as it was moving at the time and perhaps this triggered a bug of some sort, while another suggested that the player “died so hard the game had no choice but to just plop [him] somewhere else.”
This could have turned out pretty good for Soup, who was transported away from the fight and to what appears to be a pretty safe area. If there is some logic behind this bug that players can utilize to its full potential, it may be even better than this player’s genius Death Totem play to save his teammates.
