Apex Legends Player Takes Over Airport TV to Play Ranked Match
An actual apex legend plugged his PlayStation 4 into a TV at Portland International Airport on Thursday to play Apex Legends.According to Oregon Live (via Kotaku), the man commandeered a TV that was displaying a map of the airport. Security officials walked over and asked the traveler to stop playing. Kama Simonds from Port of Portland said that the man “very politely” asked if he can finish his game. Security denied his request, and the man stopped his game.
“Apparently it was a very polite and cordial interaction,” Simonds said.The television takeover occurred early in the morning on Thursday. Simonds said this was, “a good reminder of what not to do at the airport.”
US Gamer pointed out that the man decided to play a ranked match judging by a badge on the corner of the screen.
