If you somehow haven’t heard of Apex Legends, you’re in for a rollercoaster ride if you’re a fan of shooters or battle royale games. Squads of players take on each other in a massive and action-packed fight to the death. And the gameplay is so buttery smooth, and with such great UI designs like text-to-speech, the ping system, and great information clarity to the player, it looks like Respawn really struck gold here.
This Titanfall-inspired battle royale title has been out only around a week and has already managed to cause a firestorm of hype and has seen huge buzz all across the internet. The game has already blown past 10 million players in-game, and had even managed to eclipse Fortnite in terms of Twitch viewership.
And with all that player interest comes a massive drive for players to find new and inventive ways to get one over on their competitors. Cut to today and a new Reddit post which revealed a new technique allowing players massive flexibility in healing. This move combines self-healing with the repeated bounce that you can do by sliding, called bunnyhops.
All you have to do is start healing while sliding and repeatedly jump from that slide, this will carry your momentum from each jump, allowing an essentially infinite loop of jumps while healing.
This healing trick is extremely useful for staying alive in battle. and players will surely make use of it for evasion as well. After all, the bunny hop is a fast movement ability which allows for quick escapes already, being able to heal while you retreat is situationally very powerful. And until it’s patched out, which it likely will be, players will use it to great effect in the ultra-popular battle royale title that is Apex Legends. It’s only a matter of time, and given that the devs have already released the first patch to fix other bugs, don’t expect this trick to stay around for long.
