An inquisitive Apex Legends player shares a simple trick online which guarantees epic loot drops from Olympus’ MRVN robots every single time.
MRVNs are friendly robots that drop loot of varying quality on Apex Legends’ Olympus map, and according to one player, there’s a trick to guarantee epic loot each time. MRVNs were originally introduced to the game during the Fight Night Collection event, which added some cosmetics for Pathfinder.
Respawn Entertainment didn’t manage to keep the Fight Night Collection event a secret, as it leaked a few days prior to the official launch. The spoiled surprise included a cinematic trailer dedicated to Pathfinder’s past. That character wasn’t the only type of robot featured in the event, though, as Titanfall’s MRVNs made an unexpected return in the form of loot bots. They were added as a form of interactive decoration, able to drop items of varying quality, from common to epic. Additionally, players can punch the friendly robots to death after getting a pile of loot for a chance to grab their arm. It can then be attached to a different MRVN to instantly get gold-tier items.
According to hotstickynsweet on Reddit, there’s a simple trick to guarantee that a MRVN drops epic loot in Apex Legends every single time. Judging by the short video provided by the player, all that’s needed is to activate the friendly robot at the exact moment when the white icon appears. If the interaction is timed correctly, the happy MRVN drops a pile of purple items. However, as players mention in the comments, this trick works best on consoles. As for the PC version of the game, it’s highly recommended to hit the button right when the blue marker appears, or at least when the white one starts to disappear. It is worth noting that the speed of one’s Internet connection and latency might affect the trick considerably.
This is one of many tricks that have been discovered by Apex Legends players in an attempt to improve certain aspects of the game. For instance, one gamer managed to come up with a working solution to drastically reduce bullet spray without using any cheats. According to the simple guide, holding Bangalore’s smoke grenade launcher in an active state results in increased hip fire accuracy while crouching (the same effect was later confirmed for Revenant’s tactical). Unfortunately, the trick is most useful on consoles, and has almost no effect on PC.
Despite making a somewhat convincing first impression, this new MRVN trick in Apex Legends doesn’t actually sound like a failsafe solution. It all depends on a player’s reaction time and the quality of the Internet connection. For some unlucky players, however, this basic understanding of how the MRVN slot machine works might just come in handy.
