Every game has a self-designated group of exploiters. Apex Legends is no exception. A huge speed healing exploit has been found that has the potential to break the game, but luckily the glitch finder is only willing to talk to Respawn about it - for now.

Reddit user Dirty_Skirty found this glitch, and he's refusing to show anyone outside of Respawn how to do the glitch. He posted a video on him using the exploit, but not on how to do it. This glitch removes the speed penalty that players face when trying to heal and move, and depending on the Legend there may be untested added bonuses.

A couple hundred questions were asked about the glitch, or things related to the glitch, after the video was posted on Reddit. One user asked "Do you think Octane can keep his speed with [the exploit]?" To which Dirty_Skirty replied "Yup, I tested every character. Oh and you know how when you hit launch pads while healing, you can't use your second jump? You're able to while healing with this glitch."

He continued, "The only character with any type of issue for this is Bangalore; if you get shot at while healing/sprinting then your passive won't activate. (If your passive is activated you can begin sprint-healing)"

Dirty_Skirty has already attempted to contact Respawn, and in the event the developer can't be reached he's willing to make a "How To Do" of the exploit - in a better effort to get Respawn's attention. Infamy does breed attention, but this glitch could be the end of competitive Apex as we know if not corrected soon enough.
