Apex Legends Update Targets Hit Registration, But It's Not Fixed Yet
A server-side patch has addressed a hit registration problem players were facing in Respawn's battle royale, but the issue has persisted.
Apex Legends recently released its Season 5 patch, which started the game's new season and introduced a new playable character, Loba. But there were new issues that popped up too, with numerous players on the game's Reddit noting that they were facing issues with hit registration.
[Update: It appears the situation hasn't been entirely resolved, with Respawn acknowledging that some players still have hit-registration issues. As seen in the tweet below, it says it will provide more info regarding a fix when it's available, but as of now, there's no time table or further word on when this will be addressed.]
We are aware that players are still encountering issues with hits not registering in-game and are actively working on a solution. We will update you here as soon as we have more information on a fix and appreciate everyone's patience!— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) May 18, 2020
Hey everyone! We want to let you know that we just pushed a server side patch to all platforms to address a recent issue with hit registration.— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) May 14, 2020
Thankfully, this issue has been swiftly dealt with. A tweet from the official Apex Legends Twitter account has informed everyone that a server side patch has been released, which seeks to address the issue. Players should find that there are no longer issues with hits registering.
May 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment, which makes Season 5 extra special. The new season was hit by another bug that locked players from using certain characters, but that has also since been addressed.
