It appears that Launch Pads will be making their way to Apex Legends. Just the other day when playing I discovered one by the Market, and it seems Respawn Entertainment is testing them out before officially unveiling them.
YouTuber “Mokeysniper” has made a video showing off how these launch pads work in all different types of ways. You can see that below.
These launch pads are rumored to be an ability of upcoming Legend “Octane” and will not be randomly on the map as they are now, or an item you can pickup (like they were in Fortnite).
The Battle Pass for Apex Legends is expected to launch any day now so expect a large update for the game with possibly Octane and these launch pads.
