  5. Complete the weapon guide and wait for Bloodhound to leave 
  6. Once Pathfinder spawns, head to his location
  7. After Pathfinder ends his conversation, revive DUMMIE 
  8. Once DUMMIE is revived, use your tactical ability to heal it 
  9. Go through the respawn tutorial
  10. After you respawn DUMMIE by grabbing its banner and using the respawn beacon, head to Pathfinder 
  11. Finally, this is where you will need to use your ultimate ability 
  12. If you are unable to place your ultimate, keep your ultimate deploy animation activated and move around 
  13. Try to find some flat ground where you can spawn your ultimate ability 
  14. If you have difficulty in finding a spot that works, head down the area towards the weapons and you should be able to call down your ultimate 
  15. Proceed with the rest of the training conversation and head to the lobby

Standing on flat ground or crouching can also make it easier to get past the ultimate not working bug in Apex Legends’ tutorial. If you are still unable to spawn your ultimate, you can consider aborting the training menu and restarting it. The issue is more persistent on consoles than on PC.
