Apex Legends‘ Season 1 battle pass has not been officially unveiled yet, but data miners have been digging through the game files and discovered new assets relating to the battle pass.

These leaked files give us an indication of what the battle pass will include, but there are no image assets associated currently – only file names.

The first set of files, shared by data miner @RealApexLeaks, show a number of files which have been found since the latest update, which are preparing the game itself for the battle pass launch – such as a ‘purchase’ button, and ‘reward’ button.

As for what the battle pass contains, as expected there will be character skins, confirmed with another game file found by the data miner.

There is also a ‘battle pass bonus’, although what exactly this bonus entails is unclear. Potentially this could be bonus XP, or perhaps bonus Apex Packs to be opened.

It also looks like there will be a new lobby section added to Apex Legends specifically for the battle pass, what exactly it will contain is unclear though.

For the battle pass rewards, one game file describes a ‘free_icon’, and another is less clear, called ‘details_box_indicator’.

Finally, there is a ‘battle pass status’, which possibly differentiates between a free or paid version of the battle pass. The only ‘status’ level found in the game files by the data miner was ‘diamond’.

As with all leaks, it must be noted that everything is subject to change, and Respawn could still be developing the entire battle pass – which could lead to new additions and removals from the game files.

On March 6, Respawn said they “still have work to do to get everything ready” for Season 1, and asked players for patience.

Respawn address annoying Apex Legends Fight Night ring glitch in January 7 update

Respawn Entertainment have rolled out a fix for the Apex Legends bug that was allowing players to take weapons into the Pathfinder Town Takeover boxing ring. 

The long-awaited Fight Night collection event finally went live in Apex Legends on January 5, bringing plenty of new cosmetics, challenges, and the Pathfinder boxing arena as the new Town Takeover.

The Pathfinder-themed location has been pretty popular with fans, seeing as you’re not allowed to use weapons, and can only use melee attacks on enemies – even though there is plenty of loot to grab inside the ring. 

Some players had managed to ruin the fun a little by finding ways to use weapons inside the ring but Respawn have quickly moved to get rid of the bug and get fights back to being melee only.

The Pathfinder Town Takeover is the new location in the Fight Night update.

Late in the day on January 7, the devs took to Twitter to inform fans about a backend fix – otherwise known as a hotfix – was being rolled out to address the glitches.

“We’ve deployed a backend fix for several Pathfinder Town Takeover related issues, including an exploit that allowed players to use their guns while inside the Fight Night Ring, as well as several other errors,” they tweeted, also telling fans that it’s all about clean fights from here on out. 

As it’s a hotfix, you don’t have to download some crazy sized update for Apex. Just load the game up as normal, and everything will have changed on Respawn’s end. 

While that problem has been rooted out, for now at least, the game devs are looking into some other annoying problems as well – including an issue with Gibraltar’s ultimate ruining gunfire sounds. 

These problems have been labeled as being “investigated” on Respawn’s public Trello board – where you can also report any new problems you might have run into, as well. However, it’s unknown when they’ll be straightened out.
