Lifelines now experience ‘eye-popping’ deaths in Apex Legends, thanks to a wonky new bug found in the game.

It’s no secret that Apex Legends continues to be full of bugs, glitches, and exploits, despite the fact that it’s coming on nearly half a year of existence.

While some of those bugs can be serious, and have the potential to ruin players’ gaming experiences, there are a few that can inspire a chuckle or two, at worst.

Case in point – players have found a new abnormality in the game that’s causing the Lifeline Legend’s eyes to pop out in an unusual manner when eliminated.

The only catch is that this apparently only happens when the character is cut down with a melee attack, according to Reddit user ‘Steel369,’ who originally posted the video bringing this to the public’s attention. 

The resulting effect is quite comical; the way her eyes pop out of their sockets makes it seem as though her head is being squeezed, even though it’s clearly not.

It’s not clear exactly what causes this to happen; it’s likely just a visual glitch that came to be as a result of some other aspect of the Legend’s design coding.

However, what is clear is that it won’t take long before this image of the Lifeline’s eyes is turned into an everlasting Apex Legends meme.

Apex Legends Season 2 coming soon

While laughing at weird Lifeline bugs is all good and fun, things are about to get very serious in Apex Legends with the highly anticipated release of Season 2.

Respawn Entertainment released some new information on the upcoming season on June 27, including the first look at the brand new Legend Wattson’s Finisher and Abilities

In addition, several trailers were leaked prior to their scheduled release, including one that hints at major changes coming to the map.

All in all, things could finally start to pick up again for the popular battle royale title, after what many felt was an underwhelming and disappointing first season.

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
