The players of Apex Legends have discovered a lot of disturbing things in their time, from issues bad enough to prompt them to plan a strike to exploits that make Gibraltar an unstoppable bubble machine.
However, a new discovery has made these previous ones look tame in comparison, by unleashing the kind of terrifying body horror you’d usually find in a Resident Evil or Dead By Daylight game into the usually wholesome world of Apex.
Yup, thanks to the no-clipping of one player on Reddit, it’s now been revealed that Horizon’s eyes have miniature faces on them.
Apex Players Forced To Face the Truth
Posting to begin a thread about this alarming event in the Apex Legends subreddit, the user in question, YT_CokoFaag, shared the an image of the monstrous visage beneath the helmet of one Horizon skin, captioning it: “Horizon’s eyeballs have faces...”
The Apex community responded to this terrifying find in a number of different ways, with user Admirable-Donutt cutting through the sea of screams to declare: “this is cursed”, while ambiture could only find the words: “I don't like it.”
Others somehow managed to be more articulate, with one user affirming: “I could’ve gone my entire life not knowing this” and konohaknight asking: “how did you get a pic of my sleep paralysis demon?”
Thankfully, some were able to contain their fear through the use of humour, with user Aware_Negotiation160 wondering: “now, do the faces’ eyeballs have faces?”, prompting highonfire to reply: “it’s faces all the way down.”
A few gaming veterans in the comments weren’t as taken aback by the strange discovery, with user Bossuter musing: “ahhh, finding face textures in eyes the player can’t see, classic”, leading Bobbicorn to ask whether this is common practice, to which Anub-arak replied: “(this) probably makes it so they don't have to load in another texture for the eyes and just use a copy of the face texture. It makes sense, but at that point just don't render a face under the helmet.”
Meanwhile, a couple of tinfoil hat wearing users suggested that the strange occurrence could be a result of Horizon’s experimentation with black holes.
