The game is a free-to-play battle royale genre which was developed by Respawn Entertainment. The game is only one month old, however, it has caught the eye of millions of players, and received millions of downloads. The game has been received a lot of compliments in the gaming community, still, Apex Legends has plenty of rooms for improvements.

There was a major bug that contributed to free win which was discovered last month. The bug stopped the players from jumping off the ship at the beginning of the game and preventing them from taking damage. Eventually, the issue was addressed, which shows that Respawn Entertainment is willing to put many efforts in competing with the battle-royale giants like Fortnite and PUBG. However, this time another bug was found and thus, put Respawn Entertainment’s effort on the test again.

Timothy John Betar – Twitch streamers who is also known as TimTheTatman in the community – came across the bug while streaming with his fellow streamers Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. The bug makes the one who utilizes it becomes harder to shoot while traveling on the zip line. The zip lines are scattered around Apex Legends’ map and are used to travel from one to another place on the map.

The bug was simple, as it was demonstrated by TimTheTatman on stream, all it takes is to spam the interact button while traveling on the zip line. This will make the in-game character bouncing up and down and become almost impossible to land a shot.

This can be used to avoid being shot down in the air, and it has recently become a trendy trick. Although the glitch won’t affect the outcome of the game much, Apex Legends is a competitive game and some measures have to be done to address the issue and ensure the game’s balance.
