Apex Legends is no stranger to bugs but this might be one of the weirdest ones yet as a player was trapped in a Wraith portal with no exit.

Wraith’s portals are an excellent way to cover ground to get out of danger or flank an enemy team, but we’ve also seen there is a potential risk that comes from using them.

A bug showed a player get trapped in one in an endless loop with no chance of getting out, rendering him as a useless teammate for over 30 seconds.

Reddit user IPL4YFORKEEPS uploaded a clip to Reddit that shows him cycling through the portal and trying everything he can get out of it, but to no avail. The whole thing started because he was playing as Caustic, a mistake all in its own.


“I dropped a Caustic trap as I entered a portal and got stuck in a loop,” he said in a comment. “Jumping, crouching, trying to heal, etc did not get me out. Obviously, I tried to run out of it and it just sucked me back in. Once the portal closed I was free.”

It’s a pretty bizarre bug and it might be difficult to replicate so it might not be too much of an issue for Respawn going forward.

However, with enough small bugs like this all at once, you have a real problem on your hands. Apex has been filled with bugs since its launch with some much more major than others.

Wraith is still an excellent choice of Legend to have on your squad, but now you’ll need to be wary about your teammates being trapped in the abyss of your portal.

At least the player was able to escape once the portals went away.

Also, one positive thing to take away here is that would be an excellent way to stay alive in the final circle.
