Apex Legends players report major Season 3 battle pass bug

Season 3 is off to a flying start in Apex Legends, with players excited with the new map, legend and cosmetic content, but a bug with the battle pass appears to be preventing them from earning any of this new content.

The Season 3 battle pass has another 100 tiers of items for players to work through, with XP earned towards doing so by playing matches and completing challenges.

The progression is purposefully slow, so that reaching tier 100 will take the majority of the season to complete, giving players something to keep grinding for each day.

However, an apparent bug has caused an issue with this system, just shortly after the third season went live on October 1, preventing players from progressing up the ranks.

A plethora of complaints have appeared on the Apex Legends subreddit, highlighting the issue.

As one user explains, “whenever I complete a challenge, it adds the XP to my counter, but then the next time I come back, it’s reset at the original amount I had before the challenge was completed. It’s very frustrating and making my battle pass progression a nightmare.”

Another player showed that they had hit level 8 on the battle pass in the post-match summary:

However, this reverted back to level 7 when the player went to check their battle pass progression.

The player’s battle pass was back to level 7, despite hitting level 8 after their last match.

Reddit and Twitter have been filling up with a handful of similar posts regularly, and players are growing concerned that all of their hard work, completing challenges and ranking up, is going to waste.

At the time of writing, Respawn have not yet commented on the issue, but the developers always have their finger on the pulse with the community’s concerns.

The full Season 3 battle pass is certainly another big improvement in terms of cosmetic content, after the criticism that the first season’s content received especially.

Season 8 is on the horizon and players are gearing up for all the new content Respawn has in store for them. With an overhaul to Kings Canyon and a brand new Legend being added to the roster, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Of course, new content is all well and good but what’s the point if you can’t look good while taking out your enemies. Well, as always, Respawn has revealed a range of new cosmetics set to arrive in the new season.

Apex’s Season 8 gameplay trailer, released on January 26, gives us a look at the brand new cosmetics we can expect to pick up at the start of February.

Bangalore – Radical Action (Legendary)

Season 8 is going to bring Bangalore an incredible Legendary skin with a radical-style theme. This is definitely going to be a must-have for any Bangalore mains at the beginning of February.

Here’s how Loba’s new skin shapes up in Season 8.

Season 8 weapon skins

30-30 Repeater skin

Season 8’s new weapon is arriving with a bang with a stylish blue and golden weapon skin. If you’re a fan of the Repeater’s gunplay when it releases, this is a must-buy skin.

We expect this will be a Legendary skin.

Flatline skin

The Flatline will be receiving a new weapon skin for Season 8 and it’s fair to say it makes the weapon look incredibly deadly. The black spikes paired with the red coloration makes for an amazing skin design.

Longbow DMR skin (Legendary)

With reactive red effects radiating from this skin when the gun is shot, it’s obvious this is going to be a fan-favorite for players who are experienced with the DMR. You’ll have to rank up the battle pass to the very top for this one though.

Knowing Respawn, there’s bound to be a bunch more cosmetics revealed to players at the release of Season 8 on February 2. Hopefully, you’ve saved up some crafting metals as these new skins are not to be missed out on.

If any new cosmetics are revealed before the release of Season 8, we’ll update this article with all the latest.
