Apex Legends is an ever-growing battle royale game, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that there are bugs and glitches here and there. Some bugs bring about frustration for many players, such as the silent weapons bug that was discovered in Season 6.
On the other hand, other bugs are pretty much harmless, just like this new one that a player pointed out. User Life_exe101 posted a video to the r/apexlegends subreddit showing a very strange bug wherein Mirage’s decoys start flying.
As can be seen in the video, the decoy started floating due to an alternating pattern of jumps being performed all while controlling the decoy. This action doesn’t appear to provide any gameplay benefits, though.
Not only that, but it’s kind of difficult to perform while you’re being fired at. That said, we can’t deny that it’s pretty fun to witness an Apex Legends character floating in space before falling to the ground.
Another Reddit user, Kavvadius, commented on the original post saying that this glitch has been around since Respawn reworked Mirage. It’s understandable that the game’s devs did not put this on high priority as it doesn’t really hurt anyone nor does it affect anyone’s gameplay.
That said, Apex Legends is a massively popular game, so the developers need to ensure that everything goes smoothly and bug-free so that the players remain happy. Seeing Mirage’s decoy flying is pretty amusing, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they would release a fix for this at some point.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play FPS that is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
