Respawn have released a new hotfix in Apex Legends that has addressed an issue with Bloodhound’s Eye of the Allfather tactical ability along with errors relating to Explosive Holds, among others.

Apex Legends has been bustling since the Season 8: Mayhem update added a new look to the beloved Kings Canyon map, along with new Legends, Fuse. But since the patch, Respawn’s studio has been keeping an eye on their game for any problems that may arise.

One such problem was a problem with Bloodhound, whose scan ability wasn’t picking up the targets that it was meant to, and it’s been causing problems for players for a while now.

Respawn targeted the bug with Bloodhound’s Eye of the Allfather tactical in the new patch.

The scan has been messing up a lot of Bloodhound players that are relying on its intel. From casual to ALGS games, the Eye of the Allfather tactical bug has been cropping up at the worst time for teams.

Evidently, if two different Bloodhounds used their scan, the players that one Eye of the Allfather registered would go undetected by any other one. Obviously, this would present a problem for games that have teams more tightly fitted in a fight, which has been happening in-game.

Hopefully, however, this new patch has straightened out this problem to give the Recon Legend some much-needed help in the Apex Games.

The high loot holds have been causing people some problems in Apex Legends. While people have slowly learned that you don’t need to run from the blast when opening the hold, you can, however, get a little stuck on the doorstep.

There have been clips of people struggling with the explosive holds in more than a few ways, and the devs are looking to step in to resolve the issues. It’s unclear what exactly they fixed, but players and developers alike will keep a close eye for any recurring problems in the game.

A teaser for Caustic’s Town Takeover in Apex Legends has appeared on Kings Canyon, giving players a mixed bag of hype and dread for what the Toxic Trapper’s event will play like.

Respawn likes to give their Legends a turn in the spotlight with Town Takeovers that transform a point of interest (POI) in the battle royale to emulate a given character. We’ve seen ones for Octane, Mirage, and Bloodhound, just to name a few.

As the studio makes its way through their catalogue of Legends, there’s always an atmosphere of renewed excitement for who will get the next Town Takeover going into a season.

If previous leaks are to be believed, Season 8’s Town Takeover is centered around Caustic and plenty of teasers should be in the game soon.

Apex Legends’ loading screen shows Caustic walking then stopping to overlook the Crash Site location on Kings Canyon. This updated animation came out on February 23, the same day that the Apex data mining community expected to see it.

In early February, a schedule for ‘s08_tt_teaser_phases’ was leaked which pointed to Tuesday the 23rd as the first date people should expect to find the opening teaser.

As it turns out, not only were players greeted with the new loading screen, but some matches are actually rendering a Caustic on the Apex Arena.

Reddit user ‘kittycakekats’ posted a video that shows the character in the same place that he’s seen in the loading screen, only you can’t interact with him.

Nothing else about the in-game Caustic model suggests there are other teasers or easter eggs to find, but it’s fueling the hype for a Town Takeover all the same.

With all of the discussion going around the Legend, there’s people excited to see what a Caustic Town Takeover would play like. However, players that aren’t loving how strong he is at the moment are dreading to see how toxic the event will be.

According to the schedule, we can expect the next in-game teaser to appear on Feb. 25, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that one too.
