Apex Legends players have been enjoying all the new content that the Legendary Hunt patch introduced to the game, but now they’re finding a bug with latest update that reverted crucial loot tables throughout Kings Canyon.

Respawn Entertainment launched their highly anticipated in-game event on June 4, giving players more skins to unlock and a brand new Elite Queue to test out their skills against the best in the game.

Though some players have been noticing that the patch might have accidentally reverted a previous change to the loot tables that brought back a rise in spawns for stronger weapons in the game, while making Energy weapons and ammo harder to find.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers have been noticing a mound of Wingman pistols appearing in the game as of late.

In a Reddit post, user ‘RotomGuy’ voiced some observations they had during their recent matches in an attempt to raise awareness, hoping to get the attention of the Respawn Entertainment developers.

“A while back some alterations were made to the loot tables,” RotomGuy said. “Being that Wingmen and Peacekeepers were made rarer, and Energy Weapons and ammo were made more common… But in the Legendary Hunt patch, these adjustments appear to have been accidentally reverted.”

Furthermore, they point out that Lifeline’s Care Package had also been changed to prevent Level 4 Body Armor from spawning in the ult. But it seems like this too has been reverted seeing as how they noticed Gold items coming in ordinance.

Similarly, players have been noticing a spike in Wingman pistols and Peacekeepers around the Apex Games arena. Conversely, RotomGuy says “Triple Takes appear once in a blue moon” since Havoc and the rest of the Energy options have seemingly disappeared en mass.

When would a loot table update come to Apex Legends?

It seems like RotomGuy is “waiting for an acknowledgement in the Known Issues thread but it seems Respawn still don’t know” about the changes.

Fans are hoping the developers notice in time to sneak a much needed update with the June 2 patch that should bring upcoming legend Wattson to the game.

Time will tell if Respawn will be able to implement a fix in time for that patch, but it looks like it would definitely be much appreciated by the Apex Legends community.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.
