Apex Legends players discover serious issue with Season 6 weapon skin

Apex Legends players have discovered that the tier-100 G7 Scout camo in the Season 6 Battle Pass is heavily bugged when you try to aim down the sights.

Season 6’s Battle Pass brings a ton of great cosmetics and skins for players to collect, but one of them, for the G7 Scout, has a glaring visual glitch that’s throwing some people off.

The reliable G7 has been in Apex Legends since release and is a favorite mid to long-range battle rifle for many players, so when new skins come out for the weapon they’re usually pretty popular.

There are two camos for the gun in the last two tiers of the current Battle Pass, but it’s the final skin unlocked at tier 110 that players are having trouble with due to a very annoying glitch.

I’ll delete this if it has been posted already, but the level 110 G7 skin sight is bugged. Has happened with sights on as well. from apexlegends

In the clip above you can see the bugged visuals as soon as the player pulls out the rifle, with small orange lights apparently just floating around the weapon. The tier-110 skin is obviously supposed to light up, but it seems like the graphics have been coded into the wrong spots.

It’s not terribly intrusive when you’re just running around, but it becomes much more annoying when you actually try to look down the iron sights, which, with a weapon such as this one, is an absolute necessity.

Here, the glowing dots actually get in the way of your vision and cut off your line of sight, save for a small opening right around the iron sights, making it still possible to see enemies but much more difficult to hit them.

Apex Legends G7 bug
It’s not hard to see how this bug could get very annoying very quick in a fight.

The user who posted the clip also said the bug popped up when they used different sights and optics as well, so not even that fire loot you might find around the map can help you out here.

But there is some good news – this bug is pretty easy to avoid: just don’t equip the skin until it (hopefully) gets fixed. The only concern is that not many players have this camo yet, since it’s literally the final one in the Battle Pass, so it might be a while before there’s enough feedback about it for Respawn to notice.

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.

Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
