Gibraltar has had a strange time in Apex Legends. Out of the gates, his large hitscan and slow movement left him behind the rest, and it wasn't until Season 4 when Respawn Entertainment realized how to build Gibraltar.

His powerful body shield and dome allows him to win 1v1 fights, and protect his team from aggressive pushes. He can even pick up allies faster while inside the dome. He has plenty going for him and can be a viable pick on any team.

And now it seems there's more. Redditor u/TheRealboi77 had found a rather profound ability of Gibraltar's gun shield. Some of you may be aware of this ability while the rest of us will be blown away by the power of this ability.

When you break Gibraltar's shield, it takes eight seconds to repair it. Or if a Gibraltar simply uses a single shield cell, the shield is immediately replenished. So if you're stuck in a 1v1 battle, and you go to heal, his shield cell heals for 75 while yours will only heal for 25.

It's pretty broken.
