There’s a pretty big bug in Apex Legends that will let Rampart shoot Sheila through Gibraltar’s shield.
Apex Legends players are still finding weird interactions with Sheila, Rampart’s minigun and ultimate ability, and various abilities on other characters. First, there was this bug that made anyone using Sheila invisible to Crypto’s drone, and now we have this bug that makes it possible to shoot through Gibraltar’s shield.
Normally, Gibraltar’s dome is an impassable forcefield that completely stops both incoming and outgoing fire. It’s useful for a number of different purposes like securing areas and locking in kills against specific targets, but when combined with Rampart’s ultimate, Gibraltar’s shield becomes an invulnerable dome of death.
As you can see from the video below, the bug is easy to activate. All you gotta do is throw down Sheila, then have Gibraltar toss his shield generator on top of Sheila’s mount. Then put Sheila on her pedestal and suddenly all of your fire will pass through Gibraltar’s shield like it’s not even there.
However, the shield will still prevent all incoming fire, making this a completely busted combo that’s capable of taking out multiple enemy teams in the final circle.
Players are certainly complaining, but so far we haven’t seen a video pop up where the final win hinged on this Rampart/Gibraltar combo. We also haven’t seen Respawn Entertainment formally acknowledge the bug either, so we’re not sure how long it’s going to stick around. Apex players might be seeing a lot more Rampart/Gibraltar pairings in the meantime.
Sheila shooting through Gibraltar’s wall isn’t the only weird bug floating around. Apparently, Sheila can also cause players to teleport through walls. Check out the video below to see what happens when a non-Rampart player picks up Sheila and then puts it down in the middle of a firefight.
