Apex Legends developers have responded to the removal of an Easter Egg that enabled third-person mode in the game’s Shooting Gallery.
Third-person mode has been available in Apex Legends for a while and is activated via the game’s shooting range. Players could activate it by going to a far corner of the map, crouching next to a certain bush, and then switching characters.
The trick allowed players to gain a different perspective on their characters and made for some interesting angles when capturing footage. Now the trick has been removed for some reason.
apex player Iuwba took to Twitter to describe their experience trying to enable third-person mode. In the clip, the user unsuccessfully attempts to activate the trick. They switch characters, dipping briefly into a third-person perspective only to bump back into the first-person perspective as they step away from the bush.
Gameplay Programmer Ian Holstead Responded to the clip saying it was “not an intentional change”.
“I’ll see if I can find the cause and fix it. I know it matters to people!”
So it seems that the removal of the third person mode wasn’t planned and maybe something caused a bug. Given the response, it’s likely that fans can expect the feature to return to Apex Legends soon.
