Apex Legends devs respond to major issues with Season 6 audio

Apex Legends devs have responded to the audio issues that are plaguing games in Season 6, noting that they have people dedicated to working on it but they are difficult to fix. 

With the start of Apex Legends Season 6, fans of the battle royale were treated to a few changes. There is a new character in the form of Rampart, there is a new SMG in the Volt, and there are plenty of map changes to both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

However, the new season has also brought with it a pretty annoying issue with the sound. At times, players have been unable to hear Gibraltar running around or the Devotion LMG being fired – which can be pretty infuriating in the late game.

Respawn have now responded to the issue and they’re hoping to get it fixed sooner rather than later, but it isn’t completely smooth sailing.

One of the biggest audio issues centres around hearing Gibby’s footsteps.

Commenting under the devs post about Evo Shield changes on September 3, Chad Grenier – the game director behind Apex – noted that it’s a difficult issue for Respawn to address because the audio isn’t an issue in their internal tests. 

“We are aware of and have people dedicated to solving the issue. Unfortunately, it’s not a simple problem and we’re trying very hard to track down the cause,” Grenier commented. 

“To complicate things, it’s never been an issue in our internal playtests when we can actually debug the issue, so having a live game issue with no debugging capability makes it difficult to track down. Just wanted to comment here that we are aware and working on it.”

It’s obviously encouraging news for Apex players that Respawn are trying to get the issue ironed out, but the fact that they’re having a few problems tracking down the root of it means it probably won’t be sorted out anytime soon. 

So, we’ll just have to wait and see as to how long it takes, and whether or not the lingering problem will be fixed by the time Season 7 comes around.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.

The long-awaited skin is finally returning, Respawn has confirmed.

For those who don’t know, Wraith’s Airship Assassin skin is a recolor of the pink Void Specialist skin, so you’ll need to unlock both of them in order to rock it.

In addition to the legends and weapon cosmetics, there are deals offering three, 25, or 50 Apex Packs, and a bobblehead weapon charm available during the sale, which goes from Nov. 24 to December 1.
