Crazy Apex Legends monitor bug gives players wall hacks

An Apex Legends bug allows players to see through solid objects by altering the aspect ratio on an ultrawide monitor.

New wallglitch found in Apex Legends

One Apex Legends player found a wall hack in the form of a bug with the aspect ratio on an ultrawide monitor. This lets you see through solid objects, and fans are labeling it as “pay-to-win.

Apex Legends players are no strangers to glitches. Even the Legacy update had a hilarious bug in the new in-game emotes. Now, a new one has been found with the aspect ratio on an ultrawide monitor.

These are often much more expensive than screens with normal proportions, but make your gaming experience feel much larger. One Apex Legends player has discovered a wall hack when playing with this screen.

Reddit user Ricashea3 made a post highlighting this bug in the Apex Legends subreddit. They showed that changing the aspect ratio to fit ultrawide settings can cause the corners of the screen to look through objects.

The clip showcases Wraith moving and taking damage from the other side of the boulder in the Firing Range. “Pay to win lmao but I just hope the devs can patch this pretty quickly,” Ricashea3 wrote.

This stems from a discrepancy with the aspect ratio, and is generally believed to happen on specific screens with 32:9 settings. Apex players have seen this bug happen multiple times through a couple of seasons.

Apex players can use these ultrawide aspect ratios to exploit the wall hack, and catch their opponents by surprise. Others have also reported the same kind of glitch, but without the ability to see their enemies’ player models.

Since this bug is triggered by the aspect ratio, you might be able to replicate it on the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. So far, it doesn’t seem that Respawn are aware of the issue, but they’ll likely work on a fix once it comes to their attention.

The developers tend to listen to the fans, and pay close attention to any in-game issues being experienced. They then implement bug fixes and quality-of-life changes to Apex Legends.

Dr Disrespect explains why Apex Legends isn’t close to dying out

Top streamer Dr Disrespect had high praise for Apex Legends and its devs, explaining why it won’t “die out” any time soon.

Apex Legends has been going strong since its launch in 2019 and even hit its highest Steam player count yet with Season 14. Top streamer Dr Disrespect weighed in on its longevity, believing that it won’t “die out” any time soon.

Apex Legends hit its 14th season in August 2022, bringing a brand-new Legend, increasing the level cap, and overhauling the original Kings Canyon map. With the game reaching its highest Steam player count yet and Season 15 arriving later this year, Apex is showing no signs of slowing down.

Alongside developing his own game, top streamer Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm keeps coming back to Apex Legends, and has explained why he doesn’t believe it’ll die out.

Doc returned to Apex to try out Vantage and all of the other Season 14 changes, and a member of the Champions Club donated and asked Doc if Apex Legends “will die out soon,” and he immediately responded: “absolutely not.”

“They’re tapped in and they have a great developer group working on the game,” he explained. “The game’s constantly evolving and it’s literally, probably the most competitive battle royale out there — I mean it has to be. Not even close.”

Timestamp 30:55

Both Warzone and Fortnite have competitive scenes, with the World Series of Warzone 2022 kicking off on August 15. But the grind for Apex Predator is always a big event for competitive players and Apex streamers alike whenever there’s a new split.

Dr Disrespect then considered whether Apex Legends is “fun to watch,” and he concluded that viewers who don’t play typically won’t watch it, but those who are invested in the game will always be tuning in.

Will Warzone 2 and a potential ranked mode be able to knock Apex Legends off its pedestal? We’ll need to wait and see when it releases later this year.

Apex Legends players frustrated that Mirage’s abilities are “useless” against Vantage

Mirage players are frustrated that Vantage’s abilities make the Legend “useless” in Apex Legends Season 14.

Mirage in Apex Legends

Apex Legends Season 14 introduced the new Legend Vantage, and players feel that she’s making Mirage’s abilities feel completely “useless” in combat.

Every character in Apex Legends has their own unique set of abilities that are useful in different situations, and Mirage can help you make a quick getaway from overwhelming enemy opposition.

He is able to deploy decoys that will distract your enemies, giving you time to reposition yourself. However, the new Season 14 Legend Vantage has the perfect counter for that, and Mirage mains are extremely frustrated about this new development.

Reddit user ‘PRIYANSHUC15’ shared a clip in the Apex Legends subreddit, and it showed them using Vantage’s Spotter’s Lens and Sniper’s Mark abilities to spot the real Mirage among the decoys.

This irritated the Redditor, who then claimed that Mirage’s abilities are “useless” after Vantage’s arrival. Other players in the thread agreed with this sentiment and expressed their frustration.

Many of the comments explain that it’s pointless to leave out decoys if enemy players have the ability to instantly find the real one. As a result, Vantage’s arrival may make things unbalanced.

One user stated: “As a Mirage main we’re very used to getting shafted to high hell every season so this is nothing new.”

A few players suggested that Vantage being able to spot the real Mirage might be the result of a bizarre glitch. One of the players claimed that they dropped into the game earlier and their passive only scanned the Mirage decoys.

However, another player replied: “It tells you it’s a decoy though so it scans the target and shows it’s a fake”. They then added that it was probably an intentional feature meant to nerf Mirage in the new season.

At the time of writing, it remains to be seen if Respawn Entertainment will respond to these complaints by either buffing Mirage’s ability set or nerfing Vantage. We’ll be sure to let you know if there are any new changes implemented.

Apex Legends players call for devs to make Firing Range change after Season 14 update

Apex Legends players are calling for the devs to fix the Firing Range after the Season 14 update changed the way players die.

Apex Legends players have noticed a difference in the Firing Range after the Season 14 update, and now they are calling for the devs to make a change.

Apex Legends players are still getting used to the changes in Season 14, as there have been both drastic updates to existing content and new introductions such as Vantage and the Laser Sight attachment.

With that said, players have already found great ways to utilize Vantage and also discovered how strong character buffs are, including Mad Maggie and Newcastle‘s.

However, like any new update, Season 14 has brought some pretty crazy glitches, and players have also found an unwanted change in the Firing Range that they’re now calling for the devs to revert.

Players often use the Firing Range to practice and 1v1 others, but the removal of the Self-Revive has caused these interactions to be much slower and less enjoyable.

Prior to the Self-Revive’s removal, players would 1v1 with a Gold Knockdown Shield so that if they went down, they could easily get back up or switch characters to gain health and retain their loadout.

This prevented the effort of having to respawn and collect your loadout again, allowing players to 1v1 efficiently. Unfortunately, as Skeptation has highlighted, the removal of Self-Revive means this is no longer possible.

Now, Skeptation and others who agree in the comments are calling for the devs to “change this so players get downed not full killed with friendly fire on.”

While it’s not a major issue, it is clearly something the fans want and may have actually been something that the devs didn’t consider when they took the Self-Revive out of the game.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but for now, check out how Apex Legends has reached new heights in Season 14.
