Apex Legends players have uncovered a new exploit that would allow them to place Wraith’s portals and instantly teleport throughout Storm Point.

Wraith has been one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends since its release — with good reason. Her mobility cannot be overstated, leading to some impressive plays by those who have taken the time to master exactly what her kit entails. This mastery, however, has seemingly given way to the discovery of exploits with her portal ability. Now, players can both place and activate her portals with what appears to be no distance restraint or delay.

Here’s what we know about the exploit.

As detailed by Apex Legends content creator, RossTheeSquirrel, this exploit requires several steps and help from a friendly Revenant — making it difficult to pull off in the first place. Using a combination of ultimate abilities, environmental mobility aids, and self-damage, Wraith players could be able to place their portals however far they want and travel through them without any sort of transport delay.

While Ross claims the exploit currently only works on Storm Point, comments from other players on his video have suggested this exploit has been in the game long before the advent of Season 12 — stretching back as far as both legends have been available in Kings Canyon.

Unsurprisingly, this could have devastating consequences for teams without knowledge or capability to perform it. While it isn’t the most game-breaking bug Apex Legends fans have seen, it certainly raises concerns about dropping into Storm Point.

Respawn Entertainment has yet to comment on the Storm Point iteration of this exploit publicly. DBLTAP cannot confirm if a fix is in the works or if the team is working to patch it out, at all.
