Apex Legends may have only been about for a couple of months but already players are finding new and ingenious ways to get around the maps—using the lids of supply crates, of all things.

Apparently, repeatedly punching the lid of an open supply crate will cause it to launch you high into the air, in the same direction that it was punched. Reddit user Headbed, who discovered this bizarre bug admits that he doesn't know how or why it works. "I have no idea. All I know is punchy punch the lids and hop on them and it works for some reason." 

You can check out the lid-launching action in Headbed's gif, below:

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
