An Apex Legends player has discovered an infinite slide glitch that allows players to literally slide infinitely. Considering that sliding is one of our most favorite abilities in the game, get prepared to see players sliding all over the maps even more than they used to.
As anyone who has played Apex Legends knows, sliding is not only fun to do in-game, it’s practical as well. Players can slide down hills, slide toward opponents, and slide between covers. It’s not uncommon to play a match and see players sliding more than actually running. Now there’s a way to slide to your heart’s content, but sorry, console players — only PC players (so far) can take advantage of this little exploit.
The infinite slide glitch is technically not a glitch at all. All it takes is for players to rebind the crouch action to their mouse scroll wheels. By simply rolling the scroll wheel, the constant stream of crouch inputs into the game will propel players forward. In the video below, Reddit user KremitOG started with a slide and then used the scroll wheel to keep the movement going. The slide will continue as long as the player scrolls the wheel.
Is it as smooth as a real slide? No. Is it very quiet? No, not really. Is it even practical to use during a match? Maybe?
We’ll have to wait and see how this exploit is used in the pro scene, if anyone uses it outside of a few chuckles. If it changes the game too much, the next question will have to be whether Respawn patches it out to keep the game balanced. Time will tell.
Whether it’s practical or not, it’s still humorous. Can you imagine how crazy this would look in the middle of a gunfight? If I played on PC, I would definitely try this trick.
Let us know if you tried this infinite slide glitch in Apex Legends and if you found practical ways to use it during a match!
