5. Apex Legends’ Gibraltar is Currently Bugged Apex Legends patch 1.1.1 introduced a new passive perk to both Gibraltar and Caustic that makes them take 10% less damage.

Unfortunately for Gibraltar fans, there is actually a bug currently where he seems to take a bit of damage to his health when shot even if he still has shields. You can see the bug in action in the article right here.
