TAKE FLIGHT: Rampart's turrets on Crypto's drone caused a quick response from Respawn

The glitch involved putting Rampart's turret on Crypto's drone to create a flying weapon of destruction.

This was obviously seen as a broken and overpowered interaction by Respawn, and as such it has been removed from Apex Legends in the newest patch.

Battle Pass Levels

There's a brand new reward in Apex Legends for those that log in now - 10 Battle Pass levels!
