The latest Apex Legends patch is here, and there’s a long of fixes that Respawn have pushed out for the battle royale.

As with any online title, Apex Legends has its fair share of bugs and glitches that pop-up in-game. While some can be incredibly funny and entertaining, others can simply ruin the gameplay experience completely.

With new content being added to the game regularly, Respawn is constantly looking to iron out as many glitches as possible whenever they can. This especially the case right now, following the Season 8 update where players are experiencing a number of issues in-game.
