Former Cloud9 pro Tyler ‘Apex Legends that can leave some players irreversibly stranded under the map.

Even though people have been loving Apex Legends for all that the game does well, there are still an enormous amount of bugs that plague everything from the game’s audio to invisible walls and a lot more.

While Respawn Entertainment have been hard at work to rectify all of the glitches that can be found in a typical match, there are some bugs that are leaving players guessing as to why simple hotfixes have yet to be implemented.

Respawn EntertainmentThere’s been a ton of glitches found throughout the Apex Legends map.

That was the case during Skadoodle’s September 18 stream when a hole in the Apex Legends map created a bizarre setting for the final showdown between the last two teams on the server.

“Oh my god,” Ska said in astonishment. “This whole part of the map is just open? What is going on in here?”

Since his team learned that the final squad was either nestled or trapped down there, they hopped down below to finish the game. Ska was near-silent as he faced off against the final foes under the map.

But after securing the kill, his reaction basically mirrors every other Apex Legends player who first discovered the strange omission in map design.

“What is this dude? They just left the whole map open to go underground?” the streamer said. “What am I watching? Hello? Respawn??”

Skadoodle TwitchThe glitch made for a strange Champion screen.

Prior to finding “the gap in the map,” his team was searching everywhere within the zone to uncover where the last team might be.

Though the glitch has been reported by a few players, Ska is convinced that it didn’t always used to be that way. Making him even more perplexed as to why it even exists.

“No dude, that used to be solid for sure,” he said in reply to his Twitch chat. “I’ve been back there, plenty of times. It’s never been like that. Maybe they forgot to patch it up or something. I don’t know.”

Whether the Apex Legends devs have something planned for that spot in the future or if it’s just another bug, the company might want to plug up the hole soon.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved ahead by one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
