An incredibly rare melee animation has been discovered in Apex Legends that involves a legend using a “finger gun” attack.

Respawn loves adding a touch of personality to characters in a variety of ways in Apex, and one of them is through unique melee animations.

These attacks are extremely rare and can be difficult to notice if you’re not paying attention, especially in the heat of battle.

According to reliable dataminer KralRindo, the impressive melee attack isn’t unqiue to Wraith, it’s actually possible to perform the “finger gun” on any character.

Showcased by ExtensionHall5562 on the Apex subreddit, it almost seems as if you’re shooting an invisisble bullet at an opponent.

There’s no denying it’s one of the most unique melee attacks in the game and countless users on the thread are surprised it’s their first time seeing it: “Literally the first time I’ve ever seen this”.

The reaction to the “finger gun” attack has led a lot of players to speculate that this is a new addition from the devs, potentially added with the Collection Event: “It doesn’t matter what the odds are it will always be found within the first 5mins and posted online… This has to be new.”

While this could be true, Respawn didn’t include this feature in their patch notes or announce any changes, but it certainly wouldn’t be the first time the devs have secretly added a few surprises for players to discover on their own.
