League of Legends exploit lets players spam active items
Expect Riot Games to hotfix League of Legends in the very near future after the discovery of a new game-breaking bug.
Ultra Rapid Fire is a game mode that has stuck around long after its April Fool's release due to its popularity. But now URF is completely broken thanks to an accidentally added items-only version of the game mode. Players with a sheen can now reset the cooldown of active items at will, due to a bug discovered after the start of the preseason.
A Reddit user shared a video of the game-breaking exploit. They were able to reduce the active cooldown of their items to just 2.5 seconds.
How do you use the active item exploit in URF?
How does it work? First, a player must use an item's active ability. After that, they must use a champion ability. The player must then swap the places of the exhausted items and the sheen in their item slots. After auto-attacking to proc the sheen effect, the exhausted item is ready to be used again.
Certain champions are made even more broken with this exploit. Support players can take advantage of the exploit, picking up a Sheen for 700 gold and using it to access unlimited use of Redemption. There are many other use cases as well.
Since this is such a potentially game-breaking bug, Riot will most likely announce a hotfix very soon.
Players have even started joking that Riot will do some extreme workarounds to fix the bug. One fan said that Riot would solve the problem by removing players' ability to move items to different slots. Another said that they would keep allowing that ability, but set the price of Sheen to a whopping 4,000 gold.
What champions should you play in URF?
Once Riot fixes this game-breaking bug, there are still champions that will give players an advantage in this game mode by way of being the best and strongest champoins to pick in URF. The list of the best champions in URF includes all of the following names:
