Apex Legends heat shield trick saves players from late game ring death
A simple Heat Shield trick protects players from being trapped by the ring in tight spaces in Apex Legends. Here’s how to pull it off.
The Heat Shield is a crucial survival item in Apex Legends, perfect for giving players some breathing room in the late game. The primary purpose of the shield is to absorb damage from the ring. It also speeds up revives outside of the ring by 25%. Essentially, no good Apex player would be caught without one outside the ring.
But it seems that the Heat Shield has more tricks than meets the eye, and players are still discovering creative ways to protect their skin from ring damage. Players have now found a way to use it to vertically escape the ring after finding themselves trapped on low ground.
In a TikTok posted by Apex Legends content creator Alienxfps, a team finds themselves trapped under a bridge, with the ring rapidly closing. The team was about to use Valkyrie’s ult to get her back in the ring, but the creator knew a simple trick to stop the damage.
They had thrown their last heat shield into the area under the bridge, but instructed the team to climb onto the bridge to the roof. A small part of the heat shield protruded from the roof. This tiny area was enough to protect against ring damage, allowing them to use Valkyrie’s ult.
