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.

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.

Respawn Entertainment have given a first look at the new Legend Fuse and his abilities in action, plus the obliteration of Kings Canyon, in the Apex Legends Season 8 Launch trailer.

Fuse, real name Walter Fitzroy is the eighth post-launch Legend to join the Apex games, bringing the total to 16 – double what the game had at launch.

As his name implies, his abilities are all about explosives, and he’s a blow-it-up-first, ask questions later, type character. Hailing from Salvo – a new planet we’ve only just found out about – he’s also bringing a new weapon with him, the 30-30 repeater.

The launch trailer, released on January 21, gives us our first look at two key parts of the upcoming season: Fuse’s ability kit, and the new-look Kings Canyon.

Although not completely explained, this trailer gives us a look at Fuse using his abilities, which he’ll have in the Apex games.

His ultimate, which was already teased in-game, sees him drop a mortar-like bomb, which then explodes into flames, damaging anyone nearby.

We can also see him launch grenades from his arm, which will be his tactical ability.

Salvo’s unification with the Syndicate was meant to be a joyous occasion, but Fuse’s old friends are certainly not happy about – and decided to crash the party.

This has left Kings Canyon in ruins – ready for a new Season of massive map changes. Respawn have become experts at weaving the game’s lore into actual gameplay, and this is just another example of that.

In the trailer, it appears that Artillery and Slum Lakes have both been destroyed, but we may have to wait until the gameplay trailer to see the full extent of the damage.

Season 8 launches on consoles, PC, and possibly Nintendo Switch, on February 2.
