Apex Legends players infuriated as weekly challenges still broken

As Apex Legends’ Season 3 draws to a close, players are still waiting for a fix for the weekly challenge bug, preventing them from progressing and obtaining rewards.

Now that the Grand Soirée Arcade Event is wrapped up and out of the way, players are looking forward to what the fourth season of the Apex Games has in-store.

However, while some are attempting to gain as much XP as possible to prime themselves for Season 4, they are running into a large hurdle in the form of their weekly challenges.

Weekly challenges are broken – four weeks later…

Weekly challenges act as a primary method of keeping players engaged in Apex Legends, while simultaneously allowing them to gain XP rewards. 

Yet, an almost month-long bug is plaguing players’ ability to complete the weekly challenges and rendering the rewards unattainable.

There were widespread reports that the same error occurred on PS4 during the Grand Soirée event, but it appears that the challenge bug has also translated across to regular challenges. 

Following an update on January 28, players vented their concerns to the Apex Legends subreddit, where they stated that “four weeks worth of challenges are still bugged.”

Naturally, players have been left infuriated by the absence of weekly challenge rewards, with one Reddit user pleading for Respawn to fix the issue: “Please fix the bug for the weekly challenges seeing as we have 4 weeks of challenges that cant be completed, there are people who won’t be able to finish the battle pass because of this bug.”

Another user responded by venting their concerns over how they’ll struggle to complete the Battle Pass before February 4 in the absence of weekly challenge XP. “I did not get my weekly battle pass challenges last week and this week as well.”

While Respawn will likely have their eyes honed in on the launch of Season 4, so they should be listening to player feedback and will attempt to roll out a hotfix as soon as possible.

Nonetheless, Respawn have shown no indication of this particular issue being resolved anytime soon on the Apex Legends Trello board
