Tap-strafing is a mobile technology of Apex Legends, which basically allows you to quickly change directions in the air without losing power.Morgan has Explained it more thoroughly here (With gifs!) and pointed out that this is a technique that has become popular in the past few months, especially among advanced Apex Legends players.Rebirth Announce Two weeks ago, the trick will be deleted, causing widespread panic.
Since then, players have been afraid of launching the 10.1 patch-the tap-strafe nerf patch-but they can now rest assured: tap-strafing has been suspended.
“The @playapex team recently discovered some unexpected side effects of our planned changes to tap shots,” Respawn Tweet Nowadays. “We still intend to address some of the most serious click-and-shoot use cases, but now we are deferring planned changes to future patches.”
studio continue: “Mobile is sacred in Apex. We carefully weigh every change in these systems and value feedback. After further testing, we have concluded that we need to spend more time to solve this problem to ensure the relevant mobile mechanism Will not be involved in the crossfire.”
This makes a lot of sense: Tap and shoot is not an advanced technology that Respawn dreams of, but something the player has discovered. You can imagine the domino effect when adjusting the momentum of the motion system and the speed of turning in the air, not to mention, oops, almost anything you can say. For dabbing fans, this complexity has some comfort: it means that it may take a while to find a reasonable compromise. So, crazy during this period.
Respawn’s concerns are justified. It is almost impossible to click and shoot on the gamepad, so if you can pull it down, it does give PC players a slight advantage. It will be interesting to see how Respawn ultimately changes the exploit. No matter how it is solved, it may upset some players.
