Apex Legends’ Pathfinder no longer blinds himself when he grapples

Pathfinder mains rejoiced when he got buffed, but then they entered a game

October 13, 2020 Respawn has issued a fix to solve the issue.

Respawn Entertainment revealed a bevvy of changes for Apex Legends‘ cast of combatants last week. There was some cause for joy for Pathfinder mains as the rambunctious robot received a buff. As soon as players started swinging into games, though, they came across an annoying bug that left them partially unsighted.

The bug could occur if you used Pathfinder’s grappling hook as it left a chunk of his character model on screen. Players noted online that you could get rid of it by vaulting over any object, so you weren’t entirely stuffed if it happened. If you were lunging into a fight, though, you might have, eh, got stuffed by the other team.

Respawn has fixed it, though, so you have your newly-tweaked Pathfinder back. Respawn changed his grapple cooldown to be reflective of the distance you travelled. So, you won’t have to wait the full 35 seconds if you merely hopped onto a nearby ledge. It’s also handy as you won’t feel as punished for messing up your grapple.

Respawn also says it got the inspiration for the change from a commenter on Reddit, which is neat.

Not everyone is happy with fix, though. One player found that doing a wee bum slide after a grapple led to a 45 second cooldown. Now, picking up momentum and hurtling down terrain on your derriere is one of the greatest joys the battle royale game can offer. So I can see why some people might be bummed out by the high cooldown timer.

In other tragic news, Wraith’s weeby, Naruto run is gone. No longer can we run into battle, arms behind our bodies like our favourite anime character – sob. Respawn says the change comes at the expense of nerfing her abilities further.

You can read the full patch notes on the game’s website if you missed them. If you’re looking for other ways to improve your game, then our Apex Legends characters guide may be of some service.
