Vantage in Apex Legends

Players hopping into Apex Legends Season 14 are encountering a bizarre glitch that is giving their favorite characters the abilities of other Legends.

Apex Legends Season 14 is finally here, and players are eagerly exploring all the new content that has arrived in the update, including the new Legend Vantage as well as numerous weapon buffs and nerfs.

However, the season’s launch hasn’t been problem-free as there are reports coming in from the Apex Legends community about a strange glitch that’s causing Legends to use the wrong abilities.

Reddit user ‘LiverPoisoningToast’ shared a short clip of their gameplay as Ash in the Apex Legends subreddit. Immediately players noticed something was wrong as the Legend was using Loba’s abilities.

Many of the commenters were amused by what happened in this clip, with one user sarcastically stating: “Well, at least the teleport works.”

Another post from Redditor ‘ZuVielPizza’ showed them using Vantage’s abilities while playing as Newcastle. Even though their teammate was actually playing as Vantage, they both had the same abilities.

Newcastle is a Defensive Legend who protects and revives his companions while Vantage is a Sniper that picks off her enemies from a distance. Their ability sets are extremely different, so players hoping to play as their favorite characters are finding this glitch jarring.

More examples of this glitch keep popping up in the Apex Legends subreddit, with another user sharing a clip of Bangalore and Bloodhound switching abilities. The comments of these posts are filled with players sharing their own experiences with the glitch.

One user commented: “I was in a game where the Wraith on our team had Vantage’s abilities and voice lines.” Another one mentioned having all of Seer’s abilities when playing as the Legend Watson.

At the time of writing, the exact cause of the bug is unknown, but players are hoping that Respawn will fix it quickly as it’s popping up frequently. Hopefully, this problem will be patched up in an update soon.
