Apex Legends Ash & Rampart bug lets players stack unlimited EVO shield damage

Ash in Apex Legends

Apex Legends players have discovered a new bug involving Ash and Rampart’s Amped Cover that allows them to stack unlimited EVO shield damage during combat in Season 11.

We’re now in Apex Legends Season 11, and there is a ton of fun new content to dig through, including buffs and nerfsthe tropical Storm Point map, and a brand-new Legend named Ash.

One new change to EVO shields on Storm Point lets players stack some armor damage by killing monsters. Now, some Apex Legends players are exploiting this feature through a new bug.

Reddit user sleeve_L1n highlighted this bug in the Apex Legends subreddit. The clip posted showcases Rampart’s Amped Cover and Ash’s Arc Snare being used to get red armor right at the beginning of the match.

By throwing Ash’s Arc Snare through a set of deployed Amped Covers, the players were able to stack up damage to their armors while staying in one place. Rampart’s Amped Cover seems to reduce the cooldown of Ash’s tactical ability.

Stacking up an EVO shield to red can normally take a long time, but this exploit is letting players get this done in under 30 seconds.

At the time of writing, it’s not exactly clear why this bug is occurring, but it’s probably because Ash’s Arc Snare is a brand-new ability in Apex Legends, so it hasn’t been tested with Rampart’s Amped Cover.

Since gaining red armor in the opening stages of a match gives you a competitive edge over your opponents, this is a game-breaking bug, and we expect Respawn to patch this up in a new update soon.

This isn’t the only the major bug that’s plaguing Apex Legends in Season 11, as deadly spots in the Storm Point map are instantly killing players. We’ll be sure to update you as soon as the developers confirm a fix for these glitches.
