Each season of Apex Legends is different in its own way, but seasons of the game always bring new content to the game in the form of battle passes, new legends, and map changes. However, new bugs often creep in with major seasonal updates, as well as new content. Most bugs are incredibly frustrating, but every now and then one pops up that gives players an advantage (and a lot of fun), as is the case with a new bug that allows Newcastle players to fly down the slopes at record speed while reviving a fallen squadmate.
The bug, which, as one Redditor rightly pointed out, effectively turns the mobile defender into a full-fledged ambulance, is a result of one of the recent buffs Newcastle received in the Season 14 update. The buff in question increased speed to which Newcastle drags a downed teammate while using their passive, Retrieve the Wounded.
While the game developers tried to improve its passive ability, the intended effect was probably not intended to send Newcastle and their teammates sliding down slopes on their knockdown shields mid-rev. Previous unintended “features”, including one that allowed Caustic to stack barrels of Nox Gas on Gibraltar’s Gun Shield, have historically been quickly resolved. The super speed revive bug is likely to be fixed in the future, so curious players should make the most of it before it is removed from the game.
Apex Legends is free to play on console and PC. A mobile version of the game, Apex Legends Mobile, is available for download on Android and iOS devices.
