A recent Apex Legends video emerged from Reddit, revealing that Octane's jump pad may have another ability that we didn't know about. We've seen Octane get his buffs for Season 7: Ascension, and either he received another accidental upgrade, or there is another perk for the jump pad we didn't know about.

This information comes from Reddit user u/Blue_Tricky. The video displays Octane in an end game circle preparing a jump pad. As Octane throws down the jump pad, Bangalore throws her Ultimate Ability marker. However, the thermite like marker directly strikes the jump pad, and launches the marker way behind Octane, making the attack ineffective.

Whether this is an intentional design of the jump pad or not it's another piece of information you can try to use to your advantage. It would probably be a one-in-a-million shot if you do pull this off, but if you call your shot and do it, be sure to record the play.

We'll see if Respawn has anything to say about this in the coming days, were interested to see if this ability would work on other throwable weaponry.
