Apex Legends Season 4 has kicked off with some incredible fanfare after new legend Revenant was added to the game, but some players aren’t actually able to see the character when aiming down sights.
What appears to be a major bug in the battle royale game has been discovered by a number of players since the patch launched on February 4, with Revenant, Bangalore and more characters looking invisible when people are scoping in at them.
It’s unclear as to whether this is an issue with the characters themselves or the sniper digital threat, but one thing is for sure, players will want this cleaned up sooner rather than later.
The in-game issue was showcased by Reddit user PandaTheLayZ hours after Season 4 got underway, with footage showing Revenant’s body almost entirely invisible from long distance, with just a small section of the character showing – in red – for the enemy to notice the bug.
A few redditors joked that because the dangerous robot is made from cold steel, that might be why it isn’t appearing on thermal sights.
However, other users claimed the same issue has been seen with a few other Apex characters as well, which suggests it could be a pretty large problem to resolve.
This would certainly be a pretty major bug to have made it past Respawn’s testing process. One posted: “I was playing last night against a Bangalore and half of her body was missing, and it was worse through a sniper scope.”
Another said: “Something similar happened in a game where I had a Bangalore teammate. Part of her model would disappear when I looked at her from behind, even when she was close but I only got some screenshots of her a bit far.”
At the time of writing, there has been no indication that the game’s developers have picked up on the problem, with no announcements being made and there’s no sign of this bug on their Trello board either.
It is unclear as to how many people have been affected by this bug so far, or if it was something triggered after the Season 4 update, but an increasing amount are being made aware of it via the subreddit.
Over 1,300 users have already upvoted the post, so hopefully it will continue to rise up the forum and catch the attention of Respawn soon. After all, nobody wants to be eliminated by an enemy they couldn’t see properly.
