New Apex Legends Update Fixes Hit Registration Issues

This update should finally address the biggest problem that popped up in Apex Legends at the start of Season 5: Fortune's Favor.


Respawn has rolled out an update for Apex Legends that addresses the final few problems with a hit registration bug that has been negatively impacting the game since the start of Season 5: Fortune's Favor. A previous hotfix addressed most of the bug, but Respawn says this newest update should finally stamp out the issues that players have been dealing with.

"Update: Last night we pushed out a patch to address the remaining issues with hit registration," Respawn tweeted on May 21. "Those issues should now be resolved. Appreciate everyone's patience, as always!"

You should now be able to play all of the new content added into Apex Legends in Season 5 without issue. Season 5 adds a brand-new playable character, Loba, who possesses supportive abilities geared towards finding and obtaining loot for her and her squad. Her arrival is accompanied by massive map changes to Kings Canyon and a new battle pass, as well as several notable balancing changes aimed at shotguns and an ability rework for Mirage.

In other Apex Legends news, Respawn has announced that a brand-new Vancouver-based studio is being opened up to focus on the battle royale game full-time, possibly freeing up the developer's California studio to better explore other franchises like Titanfall, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Medal of Honor. Two former Apex Legends developers have also announced that they are forming their own studio, Gravity Wells, which is aimed at encouraging creativity and development speed with a small team.
