Hilarious Apex Legends clip shows an unconventional way of using Octane’s jump pad, but it’s ineffective against Caustic

In a Reddit post captioned, “My dad gets the weirdest lobbies”, u/morttuss shared the final stages of a duos match from their dad’s perspective. Playing as Caustic alongside Bloodhound, he stumbles upon a well-positioned jump pad while going up the stairs of a building.

Naturally, he gets launched into the ceiling only to discover the countless jump pads strategically deployed across the upper floor by a camping Octane. As he and his teammate keep bouncing off one pad to another in a hilarious manner, the sneaky opponents try to ambush and eliminate them.

Luckily for the Redditor’s dad, he was playing as Caustic, the undisputed king in confined spaces. After quickly repositioning into a clear passage, he uses Caustic’s ultimate and tactical abilities. He manages to trap his adversaries in a cloud of Nox Gas inside a room, giving them a taste of their own medicine.

Despite being caught off guard initially, he pulled off a gamer move, turning the encounter’s tide in his team’s favor. With their opponents now trapped from all sides, the duo mowed them down in a hail of gunfire and emerged as the champions.

Most fans commenting under the thread found the gameplay clip funny. This is because they hadn’t seen so many jump pads stacked inside a house. Some even suggested that this was the work of multiple Octanes teaming up in the lobby.

Apex Legends players can draw inspiration from this video for recreating something similar in their matches and surprising their opponents. However, they have to keep in mind how an encounter with a Caustic player can spoil the party.
