Upcoming Apex Legends Patch Aims to Address Numerous Issues

Published

on

A brand new patch heading to Apex Legends sometime this week will address a myriad of issues, including incorrect hit registration and a bug that has been allowing players to stick objects to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield.

Here is the outline of what is forthcoming:

Apex Legends preliminary patch notes

Audio Fixes and Improvements 

  • Performance
    • Improved audio engine to be around 30% more CPU efficient, lessening the chance of distortion or dropouts.
    • Lowered impact on data loading through code and content changes to improve potential dropout issues.
  • Quality of Life
    • Lowered the master volume of all sounds during the character select screen through the end of the drop sequence.
    • Lowered the volume of Wraith’s ambient kunai knife sound for those who are sensitive to the sound. If it is still bothersome we will remove it in a later patch.
    • Increased the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps for all Legends.
    • Increased the priority of enemy footsteps to ensure the sounds play even in heavy combat situations.
    • Slightly lowered the volume of Pathfinder footstep sounds heard from the first person view.
    • Fixed missing or quiet dryfire (out of ammo trigger click sound) and low ammo (the progressive change in sound that the gun makes as the magazine approaches empty) sounds for the R301, Hemlok, Flatline and RE45.
    • Increased the volume of the music that plays when winning a match.
    • Added more detailed audio to the Training mission.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed occlusion bug for the “wind down” sound for the Havoc.
    • Fixed issue with automatic weapon fire sounds occasionally getting stuck on, usually after a Legend respawns.
    • Fixed bug with RE45 missing tail sounds (the echo in the environment after the shot) when in close proximity.

Hit Detection Fixes and Improvements  

Fix for Lifeline “Pick Me Up” Banner Bug on PS4  

  • The issue has been resolved and we will be re-enabling the banner after the patch is live.

Developer’s Note: We made changes to client and backend to address this and it’ll take a little time to take full effect. We’re expecting the error to resolve within a few hours after the patch is live.

Crashes Specific to Intel CPUS (PC Only) 

  • Intel has been notified, but in the meantime, Respawn has provided a workaround in the patch.  In order to keep from crashing, they have lowered the original clock speeds for user CPUs by changing the instructions used by that one function.

Additional Bug Fixes and Changes 

  • Fixed issue with the Fortified Passive ability for Gibraltar and Caustic where they would take damage through shields.
  • Fixed the bug that allowed players to stick objects to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield.
    • Admittedly it’s been fun to see the results of this but the behavior is not intended by design and could get out of control.
    • Items will no longer stick to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield, however, it will now deflect Arc Stars.
  • Identified some issues with -novid, and will be disabling the flag until the issue can be addressed.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Trials Returns

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Following the release of their brand new patch for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward has re-enabled Trials mode which was initially introduced before the end of October but was taken down after Infinity Ward discovered a bug that prevented players from getting the XP that they earned when playing.

That bug has been resolved.

Trials are available only to players at Officer ranks, which a player can reach after clearing the initial 55 levels of progression. By reaching higher Officer ranks, the player will earn more tickets, with each ticket having the ability to unlock access to Trials, but with live targets.
