A game-breaking glitch to get under the map on the World’s Edge has been found and is now ruining Ranked games for other Apex Legends players.

As with every battle royale titles, outlasting the competition and reaching that elusive champion screen in Apex Legends is always rewarding, especially in the competitive modes.

However, Apex players are encountering opponents using a new under-the-map glitch, particularly in Ranked mode, which is handing the enemy team an easy, and unfair, win.

A new exploit lets players under the map on Worlds Edge.

The exploit, which can only be done on the World’s Edge map, allows players to stay alive until the end of the match, without having to engage in fights at all.

The glitch itself allows players to move around freely under the map, so that they can simply walk into the safe zone and then try to outlast the other team once the circle eventually collapses on them.

Plenty of Apex players such as u/eddygcpa have hit out at this tactic, highlighting an example of their team losing to an opponent who was abusing this glitch, on September 1.

“I guess we are hiding under the map to get wins now in Apex,” they posted, which led to others sharing their encounters with this new bug.

It was also highlighted by a handful of other players, including u/itsjustblob, that this glitch is achieved by players flying beneath the island at the start of the game, revealing that there was a spot where players could get under the map.

While the glitch still requires players to win a healing battle at the end of the game, it can still be quite frustrating for those that have earned their placing to lose in such fashion. These teams will typically use a combination of Wraith and Revenant, whose abilities allow them to survive the ring damage for longer.

As of now, Respawn has yet to respond to this exploit but, having fixed similar issues in the past, it is likely that they will be looking to patch it in a future update.

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.

Pathfinder mains have been begging for a change to his grapple cooldown.

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.
