Heads up, legends!

Respawn have pushed a client patch for Apex Legends today.

Patch Notes Improvements Console players can now toggle the survival slot off. If turned off, survival items will only be accessible through the inventory screen and the button will trigger the weapon inspect feature by default. (Source) Bug fixes Fixed Electric Blue Wattson skin (Source)

As usual, please post bugs/issues you encountered with this patch so Respawn and other players are aware.

More updates!

Heat shields in the regular loot pool, both in pubs and in ranked, though there's no more fast heal when inside one. Also some tweaks to Kings Canyon so you're less likely to get stuck.

Also, more minor patches are gonna be posted to the Respawn twitter account in the future:

Make sure to follow!

On PC, has anyone's performance significantly dropped since the ring flare update. I am experiencing constant frame drops.

ID: grufzfq

I don't really get frame drops but I get Hella lag spurts at times

ID: gruh2zz

Kinda similar, I have to hide until the frames stabilise because it's not possible to take fights with that much lag.

I think they have messed up somehow with the new ring shields or whatever they're called. I have noticed it always happens when I am near multiple ring shields. It must be loading in the background even when you aren't near them because pubs are a laggy mess for me but ranked is atleast playable where the ring shields were disabled.

Still though, my avg frame rate has gone down since that godforsaken Maggie update.

9/10 games in duos are involuntary no-fill rn. It's really bad.

ID: grusf9d

There are also trio games where you don't have any team mates and there are 18 squads with like 33 players altogether.

ID: grw48q0

the last 7/10 games were either a solo drop or duos in trios games. It's absolutely infuriating

ID: grumrss

Yeah I don't have the problem as much solo queueing, but my homie and I were duo queueing in trios and it gave us a 3rd for like 2 out of the 15 or so games we played.

ID: grukq63

I can’t play this game anymore bc of this issue. Tired of dropping in by myself. I wonder how many others have stopped playing.

ID: gruqfnh

Bro take my teammate I keep getting teammates whenever I q for no fill

ID: gruw2r5

Is this reason why game starts with 20 teams, but 45 total players on map?

Servers are even worse than usual

ID: grydj6t

Those poor hamsters must be exhausted

5 hours later.... still “copying update file”. Thanks PS4

ID: grukhbf

Innit wtf that all about for a tiny update -_-

ID: gruurqy

Same with PS5, takes like a minute to download and 10 minutes to copy wtf.

ID: gruw6dk

10 mins to copy sounds like a dream. Takes hours for me

ID: grvcmx8

I looked at my ps5 with disgust when it was still copying. Like come on

ID: grvaajh

Yep it's ridiculous 2 second download then a 30 minute install......

7 : Anonymous2021/03/22 21:27 ID: gruw7xq

Servers are at an all time low in terms of performance, stuttering every second, abyssmal.

An unlisted update: The Chaos Theory Gambler event badge was adjusted to a new requirement. "Ring damage blocked with heat shields" moved from 5000 to 1000.

ID: gruojl7

After I spent yesterday night dedicating games just to farm that badge...

ID: grup6hq

Same haha

ID: grur53a

This badge explains a very weird behaving teammate I got today..

ID: grut0m9

So my grind this weekend was absolutely pointless, nice!

9 : Anonymous2021/03/22 20:23 ID: grunz89

I'm stuck in a loop of matchmaking... is anyone else experiencing this? It says starting server and then back to matchmaking.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/22 20:26 ID: gruoazj

Just a heads up. Although not mentioned, the r-301 skin "an anger righteous" has it's lighting issues fixed on consoles.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/22 23:51 ID: grvdpwx

I never get a teammate in duos regardless of if I fill or no fill

12 : Anonymous2021/03/23 05:41 ID: grwdvxj

Still no fix to leave lobby delay ? ? ? ? ?

13 : Anonymous2021/03/22 19:22 ID: grufr09

The alc on controller is locked/out of setting

ID: grujf6z

It's still there at the very bottom of the menu. Try accessing it with the D-Pad instead of scrolling.

ID: grulg9x

Thanks for this, you are correct, I can access with dpad

Holy fucking shit the lag is awful now.

WTF did you do??

15 : Anonymous2021/03/22 20:30 ID: gruov98

On Origin and can't even load into a server. Stuck on Matchmaking.

16 : Anonymous2021/03/22 23:32 ID: grvbglr

Fix the game can’t get teammate. Money hungry bums.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/23 01:17 ID: grvnoju

Stopped playing Trios cause all I got was Duos. Now in Duos all I get is Solo Q'd. Can you fix this shit.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/22 22:53 ID: grv6t9e

I find it funny how this game went from enjoyable (during L&L) to absolutely miserable in the same season. Not bad. Not bad, for a Syndicate dog

ID: grwksjo

The delivery on that line isn’t even that bad, but you hear it every fucking game. It’s terrible as written.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/22 20:53 ID: grurtd9

can we get a patch for the switch voice chat not working

20 : Anonymous2021/03/22 19:58 ID: gruknfu

Soooo still no fix for every damn game of Duos being no fill when you have fill selected for the past two weeks? Great.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/22 19:50 ID: grujkju

Yes the game is in one of its worst states, performanance-wise. Yes this patch does not help the issue at all. Yes im still gonna try to play, but either i cant log in, or ill get matchmade with myself in duos

ID: grul93m

Yea man, this event has been completely broken. It’s ridiculous.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/23 04:19 ID: grw7c4k

That's cool and all but can I get a patch for being able to leave a dang game already. Way too long for this to still be happening. I shouldn't have to spam leave 18 times before I can get back to the lobby if my team is long dead.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/22 19:30 ID: grugu6n

Fix Loba, its worst each day. Now she literally teleports mid-way or teleports back.

ID: gruikk2

Yeah, I had this a few times now. I "teleport" with animation, effects and all, but still stand on the same place where I was when I pressed the button to teleport. It's tiresome now, Loba must become number 1 priority of the team(s) that work on the characters.

ID: gruh9dl

I don't play much with her, just not my playstyle at all, but I definitely know what Loba players frustrations are. I played with her twice for a daily challenge and holy cow is that ever trash from what it was originally, got knocked twice in one game because it decided a very legal landing zone was a no go, right in the middle of an escape.

20min of copying update files for.. this?

25 : Anonymous2021/03/24 12:55 ID: gs1jwoy


26 : Anonymous2021/03/24 15:04 ID: gs20fc4

Does anyone get stuck with an infinite loading screen and knows how to fix it? I’ve never had a problem until season 8

27 : Anonymous2021/03/22 19:36 ID: gruhpwt

Is the Anger Righteous R-301 skin fixed on console?
