Apex Legends devs respond to another major sound glitch

Apex Legends developers Respawn Entertainment have finally addressed a major sound issue that has been plaguing the game and making it impossible for players to hear their opponents.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale titles in the world, and since its release back in February 2019, has suffered from very few major bugs that ruin the experience for those who choose to hop into King’s Canyon.


One massive issue that has plagued the game has been to do with audio issues. Players have regularly complained that footstep audio “comes and goes,” while in a Reddit post on September 12, /u/Fadenkreuzjohn explained that they were unable to hear any noises that came from directly in front or behind them.

In the post, /u/Fadenkreuzjohn wrote: “Since I downloaded an update for Apex today, it seems like my sound in-game is bugged. I do not hear anything behind me, and directly in front of me. I have to turn about 15 degrees to the left or right to hear sound in front of me, which then sounds like it comes from a 90-degree angle either left or right (of me.)”


The player confirmed that he had checked his sound drivers and audio settings too, but was having no luck.

Thankfully, Respawn has addressed the issue, with Community Manager Garza_RSPN assuring those frustrated that he will be passing on the post to their audio team, as it has been a “really big issue” and the post will help them to “nail this issue down.”

“Every single piece of info, no matter how small, does go a long way. Cheers, and thank you!”


Some commenters have even found a way to fix it themselves, with many claiming that reverting the Windows Update from September 10 was solving the problem on their end, although Respawn intends to fix it on the client-side so others don’t have to do the same.

The developers were unable to provide a timeline on a possible fix, but the fact that they are aware and already working on it should bode well for a patch in the near future.


Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.


Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.


Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
