In a game like Apex Legends, sometimes the difference between life and death can be as small as having your settings and sensitivity adjusted slightly wrong, and streamer NICKMERCS has shared his setup with the hope of giving players an extra edge.

When you’re trying to compete with the very best in Apex Legends, the importance of having the right settings can’t be overstated. As you climb further to the top, the margin for error only gets smaller, and players will do anything they can to give themselves an advantage.

NICKMERCS recently declared that was enjoying Apex Legends more than Warzone and that he would be taking a break from the Call of Duty battle royale. He’s taken his new game quickly, and he’s made a video showing off how he adjusts his settings for maximum effectiveness.

Overpowered Apex Legends double pump glitch returns in Season 14

Apex Legends players have discovered the return of the double pump glitch in Season 14, creating controversy in the community.



apex legends peacekeeper

The infamous double pump glitch has returned in Apex Legends Season 14, leaving players worried about people abusing the bug.

The Apex Legends Season 14 update brought a variety of changes to the game, giving dataminers a new game version to sift through and find details around the potential Season 15 Legend.

As the update brought so much new content and changes, it’s normal for new bugs and glitches to show up, which players have seen with the unlimited loot exploit.

However, players have now discovered that the infamous double pump glitch has returned, making the Peacekeeper and Sentinel even more deadly for those who abuse the bug.

Apex Legends content creator Mokeysniper brought the return of the double pump glitch to the community’s attention on August 18, posting a video of it in action.

The glitch allows players to shoot the Peacekeeper and Sentinel much faster than they should be able to, giving those who use the glitch an unfair advantage over others.

The glitch is done by shooting, reloading, swapping to your secondary, and swapping back very quickly. If players are able to get the timing right, they can repeat this process to shoot the Peacekeeper/Sentinel in a ridiculously fast manner.

This is clearly a glitch that needs to be addressed and resolved quickly by Respawn, as if it starts to be abused by players, it could create chaos.

In the comments of the Twitter post, there are a few videos of players showing them doing it in-game, which is a worrying sign. Some are very worried about it being absued, with one comment saying “I actually hate that you guys post this kinda s***. It’s always super sick to deal with some broken weird s*** in ranked.”

Hopefully, Respawn can get a fix out for this as soon as possible, much like they were able to do for the accidental removal of tap strafing.

Weird Apex Legends glitch spawns unlimited loot for players

A new Apex Legends glitch has been discovered that provides players with unlimited loot from one Loot Bin.



Apex Legends lootbin

An Apex Legends player has discovered a very weird bug that spawns unlimited loot when playing in Season 14.

The Apex Legends developers are constantly looking to improve the player experience by introducing new content and fixing issues the community is experiencing. Just recently, the devs even introduced a quality of life change which made many controller players happy.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends is not immune to bugs and issues, with the launch of Season 14 prompting some new glitches like characters having the wrong abilities and players not receiving rewards for leveling up.

Now, Apex Legends content creator Skeptation has found a new glitch in the Battle Royale which ultimately allows players to exploit Loot Bins to spawn unlimited items.

Skeptation explains how this glitch works in his August 18 YouTube video, stating that when players stand on top of and open a Loot Bin that has a wall behind it, the Loot Bin will close completely after the player has taken the loot inside of it.

If you open the Loot Bin again, it will be completely empty. This is obviously a good trick for covering your tracks and trolling teammates who are looking for loot, however, Skeptation noticed that on some occasions something “weirder” happens.

When messing around with the bug, Skeptation noticed that sometimes the Loot Bin would refresh and spawn more loot after performing the glitch.

Skeptation does say that although he is “not sure what triggers it,” if someone is able to figure out how to do it consistently it would be “broken.”

If this becomes a major issue and players are attempting and being successful with this unlimited loot glitch, perhaps it will provoke Respawn to come up with a fix.
