Apex Legends players have discovered a way where they can be treated to free wins, courtesy of a very strange bug.
The new battle royale title – which was released on February 4 – has an ever-growing online community and has already attracted a number of high profile Twitch streamers to start playing the game, such as summit1g, Dr Disrespect, and others.
However, while some players are grinding away to achieve their first victory in King’s Canyon, one player has discovered a bug that simply hands you a victory.
Apex Legends has taken Twitch by storm since it was launched.
In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, Irish_R3bel explained how his brother was declared the champion of a game after being stuck in a glitch.
“My brother encountered the bug where he’s stuck on the ship, unable to jump off and it left him 100% immune to the damage and ended up winning the game,” the user posted. “This bug needs to be fixed as soon as possible.”
Being stuck in a game might be frustrating for some, but other Reddit users started to imagine what it would be like to come up against somebody affected by the bug.
“Just imagine this guy going through so much shit, so many near death experience and all that and it’s the person chance to win for the first time,” one user said. “And then there’s nobody there to kill. I feel bad for that person.”
“This actually happened to an enemy player in my game,” another user said. “My team and I were very confused, we were the only ones in the zone which was getting very small and then there was no zone anymore.”
Whether or not this bug will be addressed in the near future remains to be seen, but it’s clearly impacting the result of matches right now in Apex Legends – judging by fan comments.
