Apex Legends community want these loot upgrades for the next Battle Pass

The Apex Legends Battle Pass has historically been a point of contention with the community, and a few upgrades for the Season 5 pass could give it some improvements.

The disproportion between the amount of skins, charms, banner poses, audio quips, etc. to unlock and the amount of opportunities to actually get them via the Battle Pass can be improved, according to an Apex subreddit post with over 1K upvotes at the time of writing.

While there are ways to acquire more Loot Ticks other than the Battle Pass, some feel that there needs to be a healthier number of them made available as you progress through the season’s rewards.

Loot Ticks can yield huge rewards for lucky Apex Legends players.

Moreover, increasing the chances for the variety of loot in them can help fill out some of the items and skins that players have yet to collect.

“Right now, we get 12 Loot Ticks per Battle Pass,” Reddit user ‘Narukami_7’ explained. “Five of them being on the free side. That leaves seven Loot Ticks in a paid Battle Pass; one of them is Legendary (sweet) and another one is Epic, which is also cool. At the rate items and Legends are introduced, the loot pool becomes almost gargantuan.”

It also doesn’t help that the voice lines and Legends stats help make the chances of scoring something good feel “suffocated” with all of the types of loot, according to Narukami_7.

The user also pointed out how naturally leveling up to the 500 cap will make earning any Loot Tick much more “scarce, and the grinding will begin to feel unsatisfying.”

This will, in turn, make the chances of scoring something good in the Loot Tick that much more unnerving, if a hard fought chance to earn something good turns into a pack filled with voice lines and another Mozambique skin.

To help out the situation, the Apex Legends Season 5 Battle Pass could be structured to offer more ways of earning Loot Ticks.

Narukami_7 came to a solution: “Doubling the amount of Loot Ticks on the BP will make a huge difference and will keep people motivated in hopes of getting something cool, and maybe work their way (and the numbers) to that sweet first heirloom.”

The Apex Legends community wouldn’t mind seeing an increase to the amount of Loot Ticks they can earn, while also getting a better variety of items that come in them and the chances to acquire rare loot in Season 5.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
