Apex Legends video shows that Octane’s hitbox is completely broken

One of the more controversial aspects of Apex Legends is the damage each individual legend takes. When the game was released, the characters were not balanced whatsoever when it came to this mechanic. Someone like Gibraltar would take the same amount of damage as Wraith even though the former is much larger in size. Respawn quickly corrected this though, tweaking each legend’s hitbox and damage intake. While the problem was thought to be solved, it appears that more issues have arisen from this feature in Season 4.

          Hitboxes aren’t working properly in Apex Legends

          A hitbox, if you’re unfamiliar, is the physical area where each character can be hit and receive damage. Each character has a different hitbox depending on their size, which makes sense.

          However, there are some inconsistencies with this system, as we’ve recently found out. A popular Apex Legends YouTuber by the name of TheGamingMerchant published a video a couple of days ago explaining the hitboxes. He decided to figure out exactly where each character’s hitbox. The results are quite surprising.
