Apex Legends’ tap-strafing will be patched out soon

Apex Legends developers will patch out “tap strafing,” a form of player movement used mainly by PC gamers that allows them to make sharp turns to evade or counterattack less mobile opponents. Respawn Entertainment on Tuesday tweeted that the method would be eliminated with the next patch.

Tap-strafing is basically a hard, mid-air turn that PC players have developed to be more mobile on the playing field. It’s a legal maneuver, not a glitch or an exploit. While gamepad players can technically tap-strafe, it’s far easier to execute with a keyboard-and-mouse setup. PC players can also bind Apex Legends jump command to their mouse’s scroll wheel to help them tap-strafe and change directions with even more precision.

Respawn said tap-strafing will be gone as of patch 10.1, though its deployment date isn’t clear. Respawn typically issues midseason patches and the 10th season, Emergence, premiered on Aug. 3 and runs to Nov. 2, so a mid-September fix could be on the menu. Already, Respawn has nerfed the new character Season 10 introduced, Seer, in an omnibus balancing patch run out last week.
