Future patches will disallow tap-strafing due to its “lack of counterplay.”

A future Apex Legends patch will eliminate a popular movement exploit that has been widely used in recent months. Tap-strafing is a tactic that allows players to change their midair trajectory quickly while still maintaining momentum. Basically, you become a speedy midair bullet that’s very hard to shoot at.

Respawn announced on Twitter that the unintended movement technique will be removed in Apex Legends patch 10.1. “Our reasoning: It’s inaccessible, lacks readability/counterplay, and is exacerbated by movement abilities,” the tweet reads. Although the dev has promised more details when official patch notes are available, it is not clear when.
