Apex Legends trick makes grenades explode upon landing
You can dish out a ton of damage by throwing grenades in Apex Legends, but there’s a technique that you can use to catch your enemies completely by surprise, especially at long-range.
There is a wide variety of weapons and throwables available to you when playing Apex Legends. Each of them suits different combat situations, and grenades are perfect for dealing explosive damage to enemies from a distance.
If your throwing arm is strong, you can dish out a lot of pain to your foes. A well-thrown grenade is difficult to dodge due to its quick ignition time, and you can use a neat trick to achieve that from a distance.
This technique makes the grenade explode immediately upon landing which makes the blast unavoidable, and you can do this when throwing them at long-range.
Apex Legends grenade trick makes them unavoidable at long-range
Reddit user EddygCPA posted a thread to the Apex University subreddit, where they showed how you can throw grenades with such accuracy that they explode on landing. At the time of writing, this thread and has over 3500 upvotes.
This trick involves aiming directly upwards when throwing a grenade at long-range. You can then adjust the angle so that it lands on your opponents from above, and then immediately explodes.
You would not be able to achieve the same effect if you aimed directly at your enemies, since they would see it coming, and immediately try getting out of its way. Making use of the trick will grant you the element of surprise.
You can improve your chances of success when using this technique by putting in some time at the Firing Range to practice your grenade throwing. This trick is ideal for catching other players by surprise the next time you throw a grenade.
There are plenty of other tricks that you can discover, which is why you’re encouraged to play the battle royale as creatively as you can. Recently, some players found a technique to counter door-campers by experimenting with Horizon’s abilities.
With Apex Legends Season 8 set to launch on February 2, we will have even more opportunities to find new tricks in the game. Once we find some, we’ll be sure to update you.
