An Apex Legends player has discovered a bug that allows Caustic to clip into the Replicators scattered around the map.

Replicators are crafting locations that players can use to turn raw materials into loot. Using one notifies players in the area and takes 10 seconds. Their locations on the map are randomized, and more drop over the course of a match.

The glitch allowing players inside the Replicators is easy to reproduce, as demonstrated by its proliferator, TikTok user goldec. Here's how to do it:

  • Find a Replicator on the map
  • Place a Nox Gas Trap right next to one of the monitors on the Replicator
  • Activate the Replicator using that monitor
  • Exit the Replicator and immediately hold crouch and forward to slide inside

The glitch isn't really useful, as once the player enters they can see out, but can't interact in any other way. They can't shoot out, use abilities or do anything else. They also can't escape. This puts the glitch firmly in the novelty camp.
