Players have discovered a new trick in Apex Legends that allows you to exponentially speed up your sliding going downhill. The trick will not only help with speeding up travel time by a few seconds, but with raining down on enemies before they even know what hit them.
Tricks such as super-gliding and tap-strafing have become popular movement-tactics in Apex, and the new "punch-boost" trick will help players maneuver around the map even faster. Discovered and shared by user "wrthcrw" on Youtube, her video features her using the trick to speed down a slope with a lot of momentum. To do this trick is pretty easy, just follow the steps below:
- Face in front of a terrain at higher elevation than your character.
- Melee while holding "S" on PC or your analong stick backwards on console.
- Slide backwards
The trick can be done on any surface as long as it is elevated higher than you are. You'll notice that compared to regularly siding down a slope, you'll be moving much faster. Combined with the other available movement tricks in Apex, you will be almost unchaseable when feeling out-gunned in battle, or just to to meet enemies head-on before they can see you coming.
