Octane has an impressive array of abilities that have made him popular among the Apex Legends community. Now a player has discovered a trick that lets him defy gravity during a match.
There is a great variety of interesting and colorful characters to choose from in Apex Legends. All the Legends in the game are distinctive and come with their own set of unique abilities that make them stand out.
Octane is a fan favorite that is capable of achieving verticality by launching himself across the map. Learning this character allows you to use cool maneuvers such as attacking with 100% accuracy in mid-air.
There are also other tricks that you can learn with Octane, and a new one has been discovered by an Apex player on Reddit. This lets you use the character to defy gravity for a brief amount of time.
Apex Legends trick allows Octane to defy gravity
Reddit user english-cashew posted a clip of them playing as Octane in the ApexUniversity subreddit. During the match, they perform a trick that allows Octane to walk in the air and this impressed the commenters.
All you need to do is perform Octane’s ultimate while he stands underneath a flat surface. He will use the launch pad to go up and then stick to the surface, which will allow you to walk along the air.
This trick is impressive and can be utilized when you’re in buildings and close quarters. A few players have successfully performed this trick at the vents near the turbine on Olympus. You can surf right through them for an easy flank or escape.
The player placed the Legend below a bridge on World’s Edge and then used his ultimate. His upwards momentum wasn’t interrupted and you can see this in the clip below.
The player used this tactic to flank some enemies on the other side of the bridge. This makes the trick ideal for catching your enemy by surprise. Plus it’s fairly easy to perform, so you can use it multiple times in a single match.
You should still be careful about using it during a ranked game. You might get picked off from the sky by a nearby enemy or something might get in your way which stops your momentum before you can perform it successfully.
That said, this trick is absolutely worth trying when playing as Octane. With Season 7 of the Battle Royale well underway, you will find plenty of opportunities to use it in the midst of a battle.

Secret Octane change added to Apex Legends Season 10 update
Apex Legends Season 10 is set to shake up things in Respawn’s battle royale, and the update is also bringing a secret update to Octane.
Ahead of the Apex Legends Season 10 launch, a secret change to Octane has been revealed that should make the Legend’s Launch Pad easier to hear in Season 10 Emergence.
Octane continues to be an insanely popular Legend to use in Apex Legends, and Season 9 was no different. Now, it’s the time of Season 10, and Emergence will be adding a new Legend in Seer, a wave of buffs and nerfs for various Legends, amongst other cool stuff.
Respawn Entertainment released a full list of updates for Season 10 but forgot one small detail in the patch notes. It concerns Octane’s Launch Pad and aims to address one commonly discussed problem with it.
Director of Communications at Respawn Entertainment Ryan K. Rigney was informed that an important update hadn’t been mentioned in the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes.
He said: “Just heard from a dev about an Emergence update change that didn’t get tracked in the patch notes: The audio triggered by players’ landing impacts should be louder when they’re coming in from a jump pad.”
Depending on the severity of the change, this could be huge news as Octane is statistically the most used player in Apex Legends, according to Apex Legends Status.
Players have wanted this to be looked at for some time as it’s possible for Octane players to glide into a location relatively silently to jump another player.
Not everyone is confident the fix will properly amend the issue, with one reply to the Tweet saying: “should.”
Ryan was quick to respond to this doubt by saying: “This is game development, something can always go wrong.” This will just be one change amidst a sea of alterations in Apex Legends Season 10, so even if it’s not the absolute fix that people want, there’s still a lot of new content and changes to embrace.

Dr Disrespect explains why he hates Apex Legends: “It’s boring! Shooting shields, I don’t like it!”
Popular streamer Dr Disrespect recently gave his thoughts on Apex Legends while playing and explained why he is a not a fan of the battle royale game.
Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but high-profile streamer Dr Disrespect recently explained why he is not a fan of the first-person shooter.
The past couple of years has seen Apex Legends rise to become one of the most popular video games globally. The battle royale game has become a staple in the gaming community thanks to its action-packed gameplay and mechanics.
However, as with every multiplayer game, some players do not enjoy what Apex Legends offers. One player who still has not been bitten by the Apex Legends bug is Dr Disrespect, who recently explained while streaming why he hates the game.
After being eliminated in a match, Dr Disrespect began to explain his frustrations with Apex Legends and what he does not enjoy about the game. A great deal of his criticism focuses on the large number of bullets it takes to down enemies and how the shield healing aspect of Apex legends.
“I hate this game! It’s boring! Shooting shields, I don’t like it. A full spray and the f**king clip is never enough to knock a guy. Right?”
Dr Disrespect then went on to explain why the high time to kill in Apex Legends is why he believes the battle royale has not risen to be a more popular esports game.
That’s why no one wants to watch this game competitively. Nobody wants to! You can’t create that one shot,” Dr Disrespect continued.
“That’s why it didn’t do good in esports. No one wants to watch it! At the end, everyone is camping out with bubble shields on, camping doors like this: opening and closing, opening and closing. Just to shoot someone’s purple or gold shield twice and then have the gas kill everyone…I Just don’t know, man.”
There is no doubt that Apex Legends has a much higher time to kill than other battle royale games like Warzone, which has been seen as a positive and a negative in the video game community.
However, while Dr Disrespect’s latest remarks focused on why he doesn’t enjoy Apex Legends. he has not been shy about his frustrations with Call of Duty: Warzone and other games in the past.
With Dr Disrespect having explained his optimism for Battlefield 2042 in the past, it looks as though that will be the next game the popular streamer will be trying out with Apex Legends and Warzone not quenching his gaming thirst at this time.
