Hey legends.

This thread serves to consolidate player feedback and issues with the newly released patch.

As always, please post any bugs or issues that have come up with this current patch so that Respawn can help out!

Information that's helpful when reporting bugs:

What platform are you playing on? Which skin you were using? What were you doing leading up to the issue? Can you reproduce it? What are the steps? PC players - provide hardware specs, OS version, and GPU driver version. Did your game crash? What error did you get? Please include "apex_crash.txt" from your "Documents" folder. If possible, it’s great if you can capture the bug and submit that with your report.

Audio glitches constantly. Sounds like somethings powering up repeatedly during the match.

New announcer audio is echoing or being double played and not in a good way.

Being solo-cued even when 'fill squad' is selected. There should be a 'don't drop me in solo' button as well.(on PC - via Steam - mainly as Wattson)

ID: gqdjeod

I have played 10 games and 7 of them I’m dropping solo. 4 games in a row now.

ID: gqd0s23

I think that's the sound of the heat beams

They appear everytime I hear it, but I thought it was supposed to be only when you're near the area its going to appear in

ID: gqe2ycg

Happens when anyone enters one I believe, you can use the noise to track teams across the map

ID: gqdx45z

New announcer is really annoying.

What the fuck is up with that audio random noise near flares it's deafening. Pc

Can't hear shit near it except that noise. Jesus can't even tolerate with audio on speakers.

Apparently this happens when literally any player anywhere on map enters heat shields.

Edit : It's fucking everywhere not just close to flare.

Edit 2: Looks like we are going to have to wait a week for the fix.

Edit 3: Will be fixed Monday morning patch. Along with other bugs

Respawn needs to hire some audio people.

ID: gqdqxtk

The company definitely deserves some kind of award. They've gotta be the biggest employer of deaf persons in the entire industry.

ID: gqdacnr

respawn needs to hire people with fucking ears jesus fucking christ what a mess

ID: gqd0p0v

Also Maggie as comentator, 5 games and I dont wanna play anymore

ID: gqd7h50

You'd think they could just add an announcer volume option, or toggle...

4 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:03 ID: gqczqby

Random whooshing sound every 3 seconds every game, how was this not noticed in play tests lmfao

ID: gqd0ftw

Pretty bold of you to assume they playtest before release

5 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:19 ID: gqcu9kr

Can't even load lobby. Doesn't allow reentry after error message. Closing and restarting the game doesn't work.

Xbox One X

Error: Game Logic sh_items.gnut #773
[UI] Index "49" is beyond array size of 0

ID: gqcxhn7

Same thing on my PS4 Pro

Anyone else having issues with fill? I have autofill selected on PC but keep getting put into games solo.

ID: gqcw0xz

I think it might be reversed. Others are saying the nofill puts them with a team

7 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:57 ID: gqcyzww

Damn, this update really is a mess.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:21 ID: gqd284d

The sound is absolutely FUCKED.

Maggie blasts your ears out every 30 seconds and I keep getting glitchy ring flare sounds dominating the soundscape even when there's no ring nearby.

This might be the patch to make me give up

ID: gqdg4kw

Don't worry, to balance this enemy teams and bullet hits are basically silenced now...

9 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:57 ID: gqcz01g

What the fuck is that sound that is constantly going off? Also, the icon for the 301 and flatline show single fire mode no matter what (you can still toggle, it just shows the single bullet regardless).

ID: gqd9eye

apparently that awful sound plays when you enter a ring flare, but it plays for the whole server when anyone does cause respawn tests with their audio messages off

ID: gqdm1aw

Reminiscent of when Rampart would do her finishers and the whole server had to hear it.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:37 ID: gqcwk08

Can't even access the lobby after update, when pressing circle after error message I'm stuck at Fus/Caustic screen and cannot press X to continue.

Cannot change data center either.

V3.03.93 in right corner

Platform: PS5

Error message: There was a problem processing game logic.

sh_items.gnuy #773 [UI] index "49" is beyond array size of 0

11 : Anonymous2021/03/09 22:10 ID: gqdovhw

Did Respawn actually playtest this? As this sound bug is just too idiotic. How the fuck could that have slipped through the QA phase.

I guess generating 1 billion last year wasnt enough to improve the stability of the game

ID: gqdp1u6

I thought people were joking but this is unbelievably bad

12 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:50 ID: gqcy10f

Getting frustrating audio issues.

Sounds like a constant mirage decoy sound in my left ear, right next to me. Teammates got it too.

Announcer also has garbage quality, can't tell what they're saying and there seems to be echo.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:40 ID: gqd4r1g

Can maggie please shut up? Can the flares get a QUICK audio fix.

These random shit flare/circle thingys can actually fuck off, why does this shit have to be in every normal mode now, infuriating.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:57 ID: gqd6zlo
Why do I have two commentator voices during the champion screen? Why is the ring flare thing so damn loud?

Istg, every update the audio becomes worse. Make the audio issue your priority for the coming patches please. This is ridiculous.

15 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:28 ID: gqd348r

IM BEING DEAFEND FROM THE SWOOOOOOSH SWOOOOOOOOOSH SWOOOOOOOOOOSH also whos idea was it to make heat shield orange and blue cause i keep thinking its a gibby dome like PLEASE

16 : Anonymous2021/03/09 20:02 ID: gqd7pcf

Does apex literally have no QA? How do they not notice loud ass fucking sounds that play randomly while you're playing

17 : Anonymous2021/03/09 20:31 ID: gqdbjus

How does the fcking flare bug gets pass through 1 single game of testing.

Also, performance is all over the place, I had steady 144 and now ranging from 120 to 144

ID: gqdbvjr

We are the testers... unfortunately.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:14 ID: gqctna6

at least in the firing range, it looks like the UI elements for swapping firing modes are busted. you can still swap between burst/auto and tap and also toggle chokes, but the icons are all messed up when i was testing with a PK and a prowler.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/09 20:28 ID: gqdb5tm

Getting real sick of dropping without a 3rd. Not just us either, constantly loading into lobbies with only 42 people.

20 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:24 ID: gqd2lf4

Lmaooo so heat shields have their own slot outside of the backpack so it’s doesn’t take up space but when you pick one up with a full backpack you still have to swap something out. And then it just put is in the heat shield slot and you’re still missing the items that you had to drop...

21 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:21 ID: gqcugrf

LMAO Fuse gets his trackers before horizon and caustic

ID: gqcyyw8

on a Caustic event btw

ID: gqd73t1

Event? You misspelt funeral my guy.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:47 ID: gqd5mh2

Sounds is terrible right now. Ring flares audio seems to supersede everything. Tons of missing footstep audio and gun shots.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/10 02:59 ID: gqemagg

Okay. Seriously. ANOTHER broken update. How is every single update for this triple A title broken?

We need 1 patch. 1 PATCH. Just for fixing the game. Fuck skins. Fuck heirlooms. Fuck balancing. Just for 1 patch. To fix the game. Fix the servers. Fix the audio. Fix the rubber banding. Please. PLEASE.

24 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:09 ID: gqd0m18

wtf is wrong with the audio i can’t hear shit

25 : Anonymous2021/03/09 21:30 ID: gqdjo06

The noise flares don’t seem to be the only issue... silent teams coming from nowhere! Audio is even worse than before somehow.

26 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:53 ID: gqd6eqc

lmao the audio is absolutely ruined by the ring flares. Why did we expect anything different?

27 : Anonymous2021/03/09 20:43 ID: gqdd5w5

Why do the devs keep thinking its a good idea to make the whole game revolve around the event? I just want to have the event as a separate game mode.

ID: gqejsla

THANK YOU! My Lord, it's so fucking dumb. Like, I do not want to be subjected to a limited time mode as my only means of playing this game for a week or 2 straight if I don't like the mode. It's asinine. I was enjoying the state the game was in this season and even liked the locked and loaded event (the loot pool should permanently switch to how it was during that).

28 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:45 ID: gqd5dd6

Another update, another severe sound bug. There are countless, random ring flare sounds that are louder than anything else and seemingly travel across the whole map. Like Rampart's "BOOM" finisher voiceline being hearable all across the map in season 6.

Can't play like this unfortunately, had to turn the game off for today after two matches. Respawn, please, hire new devs who are experienced with audio design. You need help, desperately.

29 : Anonymous2021/03/09 19:11 ID: gqd0u14

Mad Maggie is a terrible commentator.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/09 18:31 ID: gqcvrni

No fill literally doesn’t work noice

31 : Anonymous2021/03/09 20:11 ID: gqd8sdx

I was super hyped but this actually feels like the worst patch/event ever.
