Apex Legends official artwork showing off Bloodhound

While most games get criticized due to some of their design issues, things are a bit different with Apex Legends. The core gameplay was and still is extremely solid, but it is the numerous bugs and technical problems that have held the whole experience back ever since launch.

Respawn promised they would fixed all of the issues nearly a month ago, and while no major updates have been added since then, it would appear that they are finally getting close to nailing most of egregious bugs. According to the latest developer update, the problems with hit registration, the health bug that affects Cuastic and Gibraltar, laggy servers and audio problems will be all be getting fixed next patch.

When exactly this patch will arrive, Respawn hasn't specified, but according to the now-edited version of the developer update, the patch is supposed to arrive next week. Whether that will actually be the case or not, I'm afraid I don't know, but the developers have stated that getting this patch out is currently their top priority, so with a bit of luck Apex Legends' biggest issues might just disappear next week.

I can only hope the patch will also arrive alongside some balance changes, because despite their efforts to tweaks the legends and weapons, things are still in a bit of a rough shape. Weapons like the P2020, Mozambique, Alternator or Flatline are leagues below their competition, while legends like Mirage or Bloodhound just don't seem to offer much when compared to the powerouses like Wraith, Lifeline or Pathfinder. A small issue in the grand scheme of things, but one that I would love to see resolved as soon as possible.

Once Respawn announces more details, most likely when the patch itself arrives, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I wish you the best of luck in Kings Canyon!
