Apex Legends has historically always had a few big bugs each season. A few seasons ago it was the Infinite Wraith Portal, which allowed to you continuously portal across the map. There was also the infinite flying bug, which allowed you to stay in the air for several minutes after hitting a jump tower.

In Season 6, the bugs are worse than ever. There are two that come to mind instantly, and they are a big problem during this season’s ranked mode.

First up, hiding under the map. This is nothing new – it has been in the game for a while now, but in the past, it was much harder to do and much harder to use to win games. In fact, this bug was in the game as far back as October last year.

Players can glitch their way under the map fairly easily. I won’t go into the exact details of how to pull off the glitch here because it is a completely game-breaking bug. In Season 6 it is much easier to move around under the map so you can get to the final ring easily.

On several occasions, ranked matches are unwinnable unless you can out-heal the opponents under the map. Even though they likely won’t have any Kill Points, the points earned for a top two or winning finish make this glitch very attractive to players looking to scam their way through the ranked system.

Next up, the bugs that crash the server. Again, this is nothing new. There have been exploits in the game that allows players to crash a server. How does this benefit them? Many people don’t bother to reconnect, and if you are the last to rejoin you get an automatic win.

Once again, this new glitch involves Wraith and it is easy to pull off. I won’t go into details (the same reason as above) but it isn’t complicated. At all. Wraith is often the subject of a lot of bugs and glitches in the game, and this is another to add to the list.

This glitch is used by players to 1) crash the server and 2) prevent RP loss in ranked games. You might not need even need a Wraith to pull off this glitch, which is happening more and more often.

Hopefully, these bugs are addressed when the next patch drops a week this Tuesday. There is also a new limited-time event and collection event, too.
