Introduced in the battle royale’s seventh season, Apex Legends’ new Trident hovercraft isn’t exactly known for its altitude. But with the careful placement of a trampoline, players have figured out how to give the nippy little buggies some impressive airtime—temporarily, at least.
Just today, Eurogamer was off catapulting cowboys in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, Rock Paper Shotgun has demonstrated how to launch the Trident skyward with a little help from Octane’s ultimate bounce-pad.
The trick is to set the pad down directly under a respawn beacon. Drive the Trident straight into it, and you should be catapulted off in the opposite direction.
The Trident itself is a delight to drive, even if I’ve rarely found good use for it in matches. The promise of being able to stick a turret on it or load it down with gas traps has unfortunately never beaten out the tried-and-tested tactic of just sliding around on foot.
