Respawn Entertainment have rolled out a new update for Apex Legends on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, addressing various issues which have been reported by players since the launch of Season 1.

The much anticipated Season 1: Wild Frontier went live on March 19, with a major update to Apex Legends, but in the changes some new issues cropped up, as well as some old problems that were recurring.

Respawn confirmed that they would be working to tackle three known issues: the 144 FPS cap on PC, the hit-registration issues, and various audio problems which players had complained about.

There was also controversy ahead of the new update, as a Respawn developer commented that the team felt ‘bunny hopping’ should not be part of the game, and confirmed that they were looking to address it.

This caused a stir, as bunny hopping has been a divisive issue, with some claiming it increases the skill gap while others argue it’s an unintended mechanic that makes gameplay unfair.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
