Apex Legends Has a Hot New Hiding Spot: A Fridge

You're hot then you're cold.

There's a hot new trend in Apex Legends, and it involves a fridge. Players have figured out that if you enter a certain fridge on the World's End map from just the right angle, you can hide in it.

The discovery was arguably made by, or at least popularized by, Aceu in the video below. At right around the 3:10 mark, you can see one of his teammates jump right into the fridge that's in the northern end of the Capital City area on the map.

It looks like you can pretty easily enter the fridge if you jump into the object from above. Once you're inside the fridge, it's basically impossible to tell that someone's hiding in there, leading to players on the Apex Legends subreddit finally realizing where all those enemies that have mysteriously vanished actually went.

It's a pretty neat hack, but Respawn Entertainment is sure to patch it out sooner or later. On the other hand, now that the vast majority of the Apex Legends community knows about the glitch, there's a definite risk to hiding in the fridge if you're running away from enemies in that area.

We're exactly a week removed from the launch of Season 4: Assimilation in Apex Legends. The latest season introduced Revenant, who might be the hardest character to properly master that we've seen in Apex Legends yet. This hero isn't the most deadly force to be reckoned with in the World's End map: That honor belongs to the Planet Harvester.
