Annoying Apex Legends bug is trapping players on supply ships

The supply ships found on Apex Legends’ King’s Canyon map have always been dangerous and a stairwell bug that cages players within is the latest nightmarish discovery.

Since Apex Legends’ inception in February 2019, the Supply Ships found on King’s Canyon have presented logistical difficulties. Not only are these mobile hotspots popular combat locations given the quality of the loot they hold, but they are similarly known for having a series of bugs and glitches.

These issues disappeared on the World’s Edge map but returned for Season 5: Fortune’s Favor, and while the map may have received some major changes, it appears that some issues have remained the same.

 

Like the wine cellar in Edgar Allen Poe’s “Cask of Amontillado,” a small staircase on these Supply Ships appears capable of becoming a ghastly trap, one that’s been very frustrating for players who come across it.

Turns out, that if you get lodged underneath the stairs, there’s a chance that you may never leave them, as one Reddit user was unfortunate to discover.

After “wondering why our mate didn’t help in the fight,” felixx2108 realized that their teammate was simply unable to. Spectating from death, they could see that their teammate was stuck beneath a staircase, desperately clawing (or, more appropriately, punching) in all directions with seeming intent to help out their outmanned remaining comrade.

The rest of the Reddit comments detail a long-running list of Supply Ship bugs, including issues with trying to revive people there, getting trapped in walls, and even dying to its engines.

As eloquently summed up by another user, “If you haven’t played since Season 0, a lesson for you: don’t f**k with the Supply Ship.”

 

Apex Legends is a game known for its insane mobility and concurrent gameplay fluidity, where players are able to navigate the terrain seamlessly and find innumerable innovative ways to maneuver around the environment. 

It appears that, while the bug when reviving teammates seems to have been fixed, players must now be careful when brushing against the Supply Ship’s walls and stairwells in unorthodox fashions—especially when it’s moving. Hopefully this is addressed soon, but there’s been no word from Respawn Entertainment just yet.

Apex Legends players want “throwback weekends” with old versions of maps

After getting to experience a previous version of World’s Edge in the Winter Express LTM, Apex Legends players want Respawn to introduce “throwback” releases of the game’s maps for them to enjoy.

With Apex Legends’ Holo-Day Bash event in full swing, players have gotten a chance to experience the fan-favorite Winter Express limited-time mode once again, which is set on an older version of World’s Edge.

That version of the map is no longer available in the rotation, of course, but after getting another taste of it in the LTM, the Apex community is asking the developers for more.

“Respawn should give us ‘Throwback Weekends,’ a weekend where a previous iteration of a map is in rotation all weekend long,” Reddit user u/NizzyDeniro suggested.”

Basically, the fan is asking the devs to create a new rotation available on weekends, called “Throwback Weekends,” each one featuring a version of Kings Canyon or World Edge from previous seasons.

Since its launch in February of 2019, both maps have undergone various flurries of changes over the past two years, with numerous popular landing spots and points of interest being revamped, or in some cases, completely removed.

The original Capital City on World’s Edge and Skull Town on Kings Canyon are just examples of iconic locations that players want to enjoy again but can’t because they’re not in the maps’ current iterations. Some players even suggested bringing back content from the original Apex Legends release, with one user saying “Can I get a season 0 Kings Canyon please.”

Players want Respawn to bring back old versions of the game’s maps, like Season 0 King’s Canyon.

The post has been well-received, amassing almost 20,000 upvotes as well as hundreds of replies expressing support of the idea. While some expressed doubts on whether this is feasible due to issues of file size and other considerations, the community seems to be overwhelmingly on-board with the suggestion.

One user pointed out that bringing back old maps could help the player base, saying “I think it will bring lots of people online too. Can you imagine Season 3 Cap City now with the new legends?”

The idea could also benefit newer players: “I just started playing the middle of last season. I would love to go back and get to play some of the old maps,” a user said in reply to the concept.

Unfortunately, no one from Respawn has commented or replied to this request yet, despite its growing popularity, so there’s no indication this is in the devs’ plans for now.
