The new Legend Valkyrie is one of the many additions in the Apex Legends Season 9, Legacy update, and there’s a clever trick that you can use to make her soar through the sky for longer than usual.
This character brings a certain verticality to the battle royale with her ability to soar through the air for a short period of time. Now, a few players have found a way to use her jetpacks to stay in the air for a longer duration.
How to make Valkyrie fly for longer in Apex Legends
This trick was discovered by Reddit user Swogglenoz, who was experimenting with Valkyrie’s jetpacks. Through this, they were able to come up with a way to make her fly much further and longer than normal.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Use Valkyrie’s jetpacks to take off into the sky.
- Hold her tactical down while you’re in the air to fly for longer.
- Once you’re ready to land, use the melee attack to bring her down.
Using the melee attack will cancel out her deploying the rocket burst tactical, allowing you to land safely. However, you’ll be flying fairly slow, which could leave you vulnerable to enemy attacks.
While some players initially assumed that this might be an exploit, the Apex Legends devs made it clear that this is an intentional tactic. While Valkyrie’s slow speed might come off as useless, this trick is ideal for sneaking up on players.
Valkyrie’s VTOL Jets only allow her to hover across the map within a set amount of fuel, so you’ll need to use this tactic carefully. We recommend saving it for late-game scenarios where it’s easier to be stealthy.
