Another day, another Apex Legends trick. And though the game has had its fair share of game-breaking glitches, this one is as hilarious as it is chaotic.

Discovered by Reddit user, BeanBag373_, the team utilized Horizon's tactical ability, Gravity Lift, which launches players into the air. Due to its confusing nature, players are launched into the air even if they're a floor above the pad, which has led to some creativity by the community. Combine the Gravity Lift with Octane's Jump Pad, also having its fair share of exploits, and now there is a way for players to reach new heights - literally.

The trick works with the Jump Pads being placed on the ground, and then throwing the Gravity Lift in the air above the pads, which drag the pads upwards. The players are shown bouncing on this perpetually-rising elevator as they continue to rise to the sky, way above what Valkyrie can reach with her abilities.

This wasn't the only instance in which BeanBag, the same Reddit user, has also utilized the trick as he posted on his YouTube channel of all of the instances he tried doing this with a group of friends. Couple the trick with friends in a live match, and this serious tactical shooter begins to ensure hilarity.

The community has been the unofficial bug testers in this game with numerous amount of discoveries, ranging from hilarious exploits to simply unfair. One of the more recent bugs has allowed Wraith to use her Teleport ability even before the match starts. It has since been patched, but fixing all of the bugs has been like plugging up endless holes on a sinking ship.

Apex Legends will have Patch 9.1 at the end of June and is likely to have just as many tricks and glitches to be found as seasons prior. Respawn Entertainment has not yet made any announcements as to when or if this exploit will be patched in the future. That said, it's time to go to the moon.
