Apex Legends bug is making Gibraltar’s Ult way too powerful

A new Apex Legends bug is making Gibraltar’s ultimate ability incredibly powerful as enemy players barely receive a warning about it raining down. 

Anyone who drops into a game of Apex Legends will instantly recognize Gibraltar. The popular legend, who is more commonly known as Gibby, can be a bit of a pain to play against – especially when the opposing player masters his gun shield and Defensive Bombardment abilities.

Yet, it is the Defensive Bombardment that is proving to be a nightmare for some players as the game isn’t quite giving them the earning that it used to – so that they can’t exactly run away and find some cover for themselves.

Gibraltar can still be spotted in a number of Apex Legends matches.

The new issue was pointed out by Reddit user Aphexis, who claimed that Gibby’s ultimate was going off “without any sound again.” In their video, the Caustic player doesn’t get any sort of voice line call out for the ultimate being called in.

The small red line that indicates whereabout the barrage is about to land only shows pretty briefly and then the explosives rain down, knocking Aphexis all over the place as they tried to hang on to their life.

While some might think that it is a one-time problem only specific to Aphexis, other Redditors pointed out that they’d encountered the issue for themselves on a number of occasions.

“Happens way too often as of late,” commented Feelsosophy. Another, Tookin, added: “This has been responsible for a bunch of my late game defeats recently. So frustrating.”

As of writing, Respawn hasn’t responded to the video or added the problem to it’s Trello page of things to fix, so it’s unknown if they are aware of them.

Obviously, players will be hoping that it gets fixed sooner rather than later so that Gibraltar doesn’t end up becoming too overpowered of a legend to play against.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
