Why are they the coolest thing in Apex Legends?
All ziplines (with the exception of Pathfinder’s unique ability) are pre-built into the map and they are positioned always at the same places every match. There are two types of ziplines; horizontal and vertical ”balloon” ziplines.
To interact with horizontal/vertical ziplines, you need walk up to one and hit your Interact key (“E”). You will automatically attach onto the zipline and start your ride. You can jump off at any moment, there’s no fear for injuring, in Apex Legends there is no fall damage. You can jump, turn 180 degrees, and quickly attach to the zipline again and that way change directions.
If you grab a vertical zipline (that ones with ballon) bear in mind that it will only give you the rocket effect if you reach the very top. If you jump off yourself, then you’ll simply fall down.
Being on a zipline makes you more difficult to hit and less vulnerable. You can also try spinning 180 degrees and turn around on the zipline, you can also shoot while you are on the zipline. You can holster your weapon as well and that will actually help you redeploy quicker. In brief, ziplines are a cool thing!
Ziplines are awesome and are one of the coolest features of Apex Legends, as it allows easy and fast movement between regions. There are balloons, which give players a fast travel into sky and that way you also get a second chance to use jetpack to fly.
