All it requires is Octane’s jump pad, Caustic’s gas barrels, and Pathfinder’s grapple hook, followed with some easy steps. After placing down the jump pad on the ground, aim the barrel in a way that the circle indicating where it will land is slightly intersecting the pad’s edge.

Once the barrel inflates and hovers in mid-air above the jump pad, it’s Pathfinder’s turn to grapple onto it and rise into the sky. Holding a sidewards input and looking at the barrel while connected to it will help you reach the maximum height.

It’s not hard to do this stunt, and after practicing a bit in the Firing Range, you can easily do it in-game, as shown in the video below. This glitch is useful in getting a superb view of the map while floating high in the atmosphere. For those down on the ground, it’s hilarious to see their teammate spiral to space.

Unlike some annoying bugs, this one is something cool to show your friends and actually fun to do. For now, we have to wait and watch if Respawn ships out an update to implement a fix. Until then, you can propel to new heights in Apex Legends using Pathfinder, Octane, and Caustic’s abilities.
