Apex Legends players are reporting a bizarre glitch that causes those who try crafting items with Replicators to fall straight through the map and die.
Although the glitch requires more investigation, it may be tied to Vantage, the Legend most recently released by Respawn Entertainment. The Legend has already proven a locus for bugs and glitches, and an example of the glitch shows it happening to a player using Vantage.
In the clip, posted to the Apex Legends subreddit Friday by u/ulwrestler145, the Vantage player starts crafting with a Replicator. After crafting one Shield battery and moving to another empty slot to craft a Med Kit, the Vantage player exits the crafting menu and immediately falls straight through the ground. They continue falling out of bounds until they hit the death plane and die.
Other players in the comments said they had experienced other glitches with the Replicator, including one in which they were forced to crouch after crafting an item. It's possible the two glitches are related, but that's yet to be confirmed.
Respawn Entertainment has yet to acknowledge either bug.
