Healing while shooting at the same time

Player observed using shield cells and shooting at the same time

★★★★ Novice


Hey all,


I've just seen something off in a game of Apex I was just in, there was a Lifeline that was able to use healing items (shield cells/batteries) AND shoot at the same time (which obviously gave them an unfair advantage).


The player in question did this multiple times during our battle, I was wondering if this was a known glitch or if the player was cheating, they were also able to move at full speed whilst doing this too.


It made it a little bit frustrating as every time they were shot only purple numbers would come off them (as they were constantly repairing their shield).


Has anyone else ever come across this?

I've today come across my first heath/shield re-gen 'bunny hopper' (which I think is what the kidz call them! Standard smile ) but not any of the other things you've seen.

If you know the username of the player that's doing it i'd suggest reporting them as a suspected cheater using this form:

I may be wrong, but I believe this is simply an animation bug. Earlier I was playing with a friend and he said I was stuck using the shield battery/cell animation when I wasn't actually using one.
