A new exploit involving Seer and his scanning ability is making the rounds on Apex Legends.

There are few things better than discovering a way to take advantage of in-game mechanics and give yourself a clever edge over your opponents. After all, no matter how talented or well paid, no development team can catch every workaround like a collective consisting of millions of competitive players. Seer seems to be the culprit of several, recently, from a moving ultimate ability to scanning at normal speed.

Streamer Explains Seer Scanning Exploit

The maneuver was brought to light by Christian "Nokokopuffs" Feliciano, an Apex Legends Twitch streamer. In a stream broadcast on Wednesday, Aug. 25, Nokokopuffs demonstrated his exploit to his massive audience—using bunnyhops to move at full speed during Seer's ultimate.

As seen in the clip, while Seer's Q is active, Nokokopuffs put his weapons away and slide-jumped into a series of bunnyhops using the right mouse button. This allowed him to move around the test area at full speed rather than at the usual fraction.

"I knew they weren't going to fix this," he said in the stream, "I thought about saying something, but I forgot."

Obviously, this is an extremely useful exploit if players can pull it off. Scanning for enemies and being able to move toward them at the same time makes hunting down an opposing team almost comically simple. Watching their trail shows enough information about where they're going to deduce what strategy they could be planning—especially if the Seer player knows the map.

It also helps that Seer keep themselves out of harm's way. A slow-moving target is an easy one to pick off, after all, and it's no secret that Seer's kit paints a large target on his back.

Respawn has yet to respond to the exploit or explain whether they plan to remove it.
