Apex Legends players shouldn’t have to wait much longer for the frustrating problems involving Treasure Packs to be sorted in-game, as a fix has been confirmed to be coming soon. 

Members of the community have been flagging this as an issue since the quests began at the beginning of Season 5, where a pop-up message keeps telling them the same thing over and over again. That, and an annoying coin noise that comes with it.

If you were one of those wondering when this would be resolved, fear not, as one of the dev team have finally responded to a fan and given them the answer we’ve all been waiting for.

You're going to have to run away from plenty of Prowlers in this week's Apex Legends Broken Ghost quest.

Apex Legends quests have been a hit since they were added, but one issue has made it quite annoying for some.

On June 2, Twitter user RasBruh pinged a screenshot of the Treasure Pack problem over to designer Jason McCord, along with a tongue in cheek question. They said: “Hey Jason, how many heirloom shards will it cost to stop this popping up post-game?”

Soon enough, the Design Director hit them up with a reply, claiming that it should be put to bed some time in the near future – or more specifically, in the next patch.

Unfortunately there was no timeframe put on that next patch, and it’s yet to be flagged on the game’s official Trello board, which features others like like buzzing audio sounds and reconnect issues some players have been experiencing.

After getting an answer for free, however, the original poster added a cheeky Caustic reference: “No worries JJ, I’ll preserve my heirloom shards for the next Caustic item in the heirloom shop, I see everything.”

Once this has been fixed in-game, we’ll be sure to hit you up with the patch notes and all of the details.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
