Apex Legends players have uncovered a strange movement bug that is preventing them from climbing over railings in certain areas of Kings Canyon. 

After much anticipation, Apex Legends season five: Fortune’s Favor finally launched on Tuesday, May 12, bringing with it a huge set of map changes to Kings Canyon, Loba as the new legend, and tweaks to the other characters.

As players have been sprinting around the battle royale’s original map in the hopes of being crowned Apex champion, they have uncovered a few bugs that need fixing already – including being unable to loot deathboxes. However, there’s another issue that is affecting the movement of every legend, especially when it comes to climbing.

Apex players have found themselves unable to climb with the new bug.

The new problem was pointed out by Reddit user Joshi_Boi, who pleaded with the Respawn development team to send out a fix in the future. 

In the Redditor’s clip, they had been attempting to scale a set of railings when they found themselves reaching the top and slipping back do again. Obviously, when a legend hits the top of the railing, they should be able to vault over it.

Instead, Joshi_Boi tried multiple times to make sure it wasn’t just one part of the fence that was bugging out. As none of them worked, the Redditor had to use a leg up from a box that was sat nearby – canceling out their interaction with the fence.

Other players were quick to point out that the issue had also affected them with one, wordswiththeletterB , noting that the new problem had left them pretty confused when it resulted in death during trying to escape a gunfight. 

The Apex devs are usually pretty quick to respond to issues as big as this, however, it doesn’t currently have a spot on their Trello board, so there is no way of knowing if they are aware of it or not. Though, players will be hoping a fix is implemented soon enough.

Classic Apex Legends care package bug is plaguing games on Olympus

A classic Apex Legends care package bug has resurfaced in the ongoing Season 7, meaning it has now plagued every single one of the game’s maps – first Kings Canyon, then World’s Edge and now Olympus. 

A game as big and variable as Apex Legends was bound to be plagued by bugs from time to time, but players have grown increasingly frustrated with Respawn as more and more bugs not only affect gameplay, but return in multiple different seasons.

That is the case with this particular care package issue, which has previously surfaced on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. Unfortunately, it has now made a return in Season 7 and Olympus, despite efforts from Respawn to patch it in the past.

Lifeline might be a support legend, but her care packages can get teams out of tricky spots.

The glitch revolves around a care package spawning in a location slightly off the map’s customary boundaries. For example, it might be slightly below, on a couple of the large pipes that help to prop up the Olympus environment.

Pursuing the care package, which often contains top-tier loot, results in an instant death, as one Redditor unluckily found out.

Joking that they got ‘bamboozled’ by a care package, they hopped down below to take advantage of the loot on offer, only to be killed rapidly when hitting the area of the map the care package had nestled itself in.

It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident either, unfortunately. Another Reddit user shared a YouTube clip entitled ‘It’s a Trap!’

The video shows off an almost identical death, as the allure of top-tier weaponry is enough to provide the player with an instant and immensely frustrating death.

Respawn have not yet responded to the issue, but we expect to see small adjustments made to stop the issues from occurring. For the time being, though, avoid going for care packages that look like they’re in dangerous locations.
