Apex Legends console players may soon have a fix for their annoying cursor bug that forces them to waste them when trying to manage their loot.

However, that hasn’t stopped the developers from addressing issues and trying to keep the game as strong as possible with regular updates to problems – be it big or small.

Apex Legends has been a massively successful battle royale title but fallen behind its rivals.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, Avi304, noted that the cursor for managing inventory on console is currently snapping to the side instead of to the middle. This means that players have to take a few extra moments, which could be the difference between being eliminated and surviving, to get the cursor where it needs to be.

Nevertheless, the error was quickly picked up on by JayFresh – a part of the Respawn team – who explained that they would be looking into what was causing the error. “Noted! We’re looking into this, the cursor snapping to center is the intended state,” they replied.

Redditors address other problems

Nevertheless, other members of the subreddit chimed in with potential improvements of their own for the in-game cursor. One, YouLeftTheStoveOn, requested an option to increase the in-menu cursor speed instead of it being reliant on a players sensitivity.

However, the dev didn’t pick up on the response, but that’s not to say that it couldn’t be something that comes to the game in future – especially if enough players have the same idea.

With the start of Apex Legends Season 2 for the game slated for July 2, it remains to be seen just what bug fixes that Respawn address in their next massive update.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered.
