Broken Apex Legends revive bug is back again

An old bug that used to prevent Apex Legends players from being able to revive their teammates seems to have returned in Season 5, making for some seriously infuriating games.

There have been numerous instances of bugs with reviving teammates, including a major issue with Mirage’s clones instantly reviving enemies, but this one is bound to cause some major rifts between teammates.

As it was in Season 2 — prior to being patched — sometimes, players are simply unable to revive their teammate, with the command prompt not popping up.

This bug has returned several months after first being fixed.

Though it has been around a year since the bug was first found in the game, players were relatively unaffected in recent months as Respawn seemingly found a fix but somehow, someway, the bug has found its way back into the game.

As you can see in the clip provided below, no matter how hard you try, when the bug hits you simply cannot pick up your teammate no matter how hard you try.

It’s unclear what causes the bug, seeming to occur completely at random, but it essentially means you have to leave your teammate for dead and instead get their tag to a respawn beacon before it’s too late — which could be the difference between winning or losing.

The clip, from Reddit user RhydonHerSlowbro, depicts a downed Bloodhound with absolutely no prompt showing up, and in this case it did cost them the match as Rhydon was torn between continuing the attempt to pick up their teammate and trying to fend off nearby enemies.

Dear Bloodhound, if you’re out there; I physically couldn’t revive you, the prompt never showed up, I wasn’t being toxic :’( from r/apexlegends

One user responded to Rhydon’s post saying that when it had impacted them in Season 2, neither they nor their teammate were able to revive the downed player, which may suggest it is an issue on the side of the downed player, and not those trying to revive them.

As with Rhydon’s predicament, Ciralak simply says that “we had to wait until the poor dude bled out” which — especially if you’re playing with a random duo or trio — can be seriously aggravating for everyone involved.

Regardless of how it’s caused, Respawn will be desperate to put this bug to bed once and for all, so expect a fix or comment from the developer before long.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
