Apex Legends players have been looking forward to the announcement of the first Battle Pass since the game’s shock launched and a new bug seems to suggest that it should be out by now. 

It was widely expected among the game’s online community that the first Battle Pass for the free-to-play title would land on March 12, following an accidental leak from Origin which seemed to announce its price and arrival. 

Disappointment soon set in, though, when Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment posted on Reddit that an announcement would be made sometime in the future. 

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends players can’t wait to get their hands on the Season 1 Battle Pass.

However, a new bug that can be seen in-game seems to show that the Battle Pass was indeed planned to launch on March 12 – or thereabouts. 

The bug, which can be seen in the short clip below, seems to show items appearing in Apex Packs that don’t seem to be authorised yet. 

Some fans are speculating that these items were being prepared to be added to the game ahead of the initial launch date of the Battle Pass, but were not set live due to a change in direction from the developer. 

Apex Legends data miner @Shrugtal claims this is further proof that the battle pass was scheduled to release on March 12, but was delayed.

There’s still no word from Respawn that suggests that new content was planned to arrive on March 12, but now it’s not only leaked information that seems to hint at it – as items that can’t even be used yet are being handed out in packs.

Whenever there’s an announcement on the official release of the Battle Pass for Apex Legends, we’ll be the first to let you know. Until then, it seems to be a waiting game for fans.

Cocky Apex Legends cheater banned after streaming hacks on Twitch

An Apex Legends hacker, ‘Loide90,’ has been exposed and swiftly banned after brashly streaming on Twitch, face cam and all, with obvious wall hacks enabled.

It’s one thing to feel emboldened enough to infuriate opponents and risk bans by hacking in a video game. It’s entirely another beast of brazen confidence to stream those hacks live on Twitch to over 700 viewers while casually hanging out with your face cam turned on.

As it turns out, an Apex Legends streamer, Loide90, boasts such levels of unabashed self-assuredness. During an October 25 stream, he was exposed for nonchalantly using wallhacks during a fairly busy broadcast.

And no, these were not Bloodhound’s brand of temporary superior visibility, restricted by cooldowns and location, as Loide90 could simply see vibrant, red enemy silhouettes through walls permanently. Since the exposure, he has apparently been banned on both Twitch and in the popular battle royale from Respawn Entertainment.

With numerous people taking to Twitter to call out Loide90’s untoward behavior, other streamers even got in on the action. One peer, by the name of ‘noobkingsmith,’ was watching the hacker live, granting viewers a chance to clip the cheats from someone else’s channel and thereby ensuring the clip wouldn’t be so easily deleted.

Clipped by ‘VixTrilogy’ and shared on Twitter with Respawn tagged directly, it was actually another tweet that appears to have gotten the developers’ attention and led to the eventual ban. 

After ‘Jonny,’ a professional player for SoaR, posted a clip showing how he died to the hacker, Respawn Producer Josh Medina responded confirming the cheater had been banned and that it wasn’t his first transgression.

Numerous others had tagged Medina and the dev followed up by letting the community know what a Twitch search for Loide90’s account also confirms: the account is banned. 

“I told him this would happen before banning one of his alts.” As Medina explains, he apparently had tried to broach the subject with Loide before and, with his warnings unheralded, was once again forced to ban the brash cheater.

It appears that the hacker’s Twitch account has been banned and, although it has yet to be confirmed, one has to imagine that his EA account for Apex Legends has also been purged.
