Apex Legends players have spotted launch pads in the game world as part of a clear tease for the addition of new character Octane.
Apex Legends dataminers recently uncovered reference to Octane and even details of their abilities. Octane's ultimate, for example, is supposedly the Launch Pad - a deployable jump pad that catapults users through the air.
Which also means that this leak from yesterday from a playtesting / QA session was correct. Which *also* means that my Stimpack and Jump Pad leaks from last month were also correct. pic.twitter.com/NJrnmgdO3A— Shrugtal (@shrugtal) March 1, 2019
Respawn is clearly having a bit of fun with the Apex Legends community by placing launch pads in the map. These launch pads do exactly what they say on the tin: they catapult players through the air.
After players spotted the launch pads and took to Apex Legends' subreddit to express their excitement, a Respawn developer replied with the winking face emoji.
The upshot of all this is Octane, Apex Legends' season one and battle pass feel imminent. Something for Monday next week, perhaps?
