Dr Disrespect loses his mind over ‘disastrous’ Apex Legends gun effects

Star Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect has had enough of the weapon effects in Apex Legends, and he expressed his feelings in one of his iconic rage-filled rants. 

Dr Disrespect raging over a battle royale game is nothing new, but the sight of seeing him lose his mind on his stream never gets old.

His latest spell of anger came during a session of Apex Legends, when he found himself come out on the wrong end of an intense gunfight.

During the gunfight, the Doc was being peppered with shots from the enemy team, which caused a lot of animation and graphics to appear on his screen.

Turns out, those effects were enough to take care of the last bit of patience he had in him at that point, and losing the gunfight was just icing on the cake.

Dr Disrespect - TwitchAnother day, another rage-filled rant from Dr Disrespect about a battle royale game.

After he got eliminated, the Doc immediately left the game with haste, turning his camera to fullscreen, which his viewers knew could only mean one thing.

“When I’m receiving damage, why does my screen look like my actual real monitor is going to blow up,” he yelled. “I mean sh*t, we don’t need all of the VFX, I don’t need my screen to shake, I don’t need the audio. It’s a f*cking disaster.”

He then went on to give the developers at Respawn Entertainment some advice on how to adjust the game to make it look and feel better.

“The damage feedback system in this game, it’s a disaster. It’s terrible. Tone it down by like 95% please! Holy sh*t!”

Of course, the Doc isn’t the only player in Apex Legends who has complained about on-screen graphics and animations taking place during gunfights.

In fact, many have complained about this particular aspect of the the game for a while now, and it still continues to be an issue, even now during Season 2.

Ex-Overwatch pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned had a similar reaction when recently coming across a heavy amount of muzzle flash while engaging in combat.

It’s safe to say that most players simply don’t like having too much going on their screens when shooting their weapon, so it’s something that Respawn might want to prioritize for the near future.

Classic Apex Legends care package bug is plaguing games on Olympus

A classic Apex Legends care package bug has resurfaced in the ongoing Season 7, meaning it has now plagued every single one of the game’s maps – first Kings Canyon, then World’s Edge and now Olympus. 

A game as big and variable as Apex Legends was bound to be plagued by bugs from time to time, but players have grown increasingly frustrated with Respawn as more and more bugs not only affect gameplay, but return in multiple different seasons.

That is the case with this particular care package issue, which has previously surfaced on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. Unfortunately, it has now made a return in Season 7 and Olympus, despite efforts from Respawn to patch it in the past.

Lifeline might be a support legend, but her care packages can get teams out of tricky spots.

The glitch revolves around a care package spawning in a location slightly off the map’s customary boundaries. For example, it might be slightly below, on a couple of the large pipes that help to prop up the Olympus environment.

Pursuing the care package, which often contains top-tier loot, results in an instant death, as one Redditor unluckily found out.

Joking that they got ‘bamboozled’ by a care package, they hopped down below to take advantage of the loot on offer, only to be killed rapidly when hitting the area of the map the care package had nestled itself in.


It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident either, unfortunately. Another Reddit user shared a YouTube clip entitled ‘It’s a Trap!’

The video shows off an almost identical death, as the allure of top-tier weaponry is enough to provide the player with an instant and immensely frustrating death.

Respawn have not yet responded to the issue, but we expect to see small adjustments made to stop the issues from occurring. For the time being, though, avoid going for care packages that look like they’re in dangerous locations.
