A long-standing issue that has plagued players in Apex Legends has reared its head again in Season 6, preventing players from reviving their teammates whatsoever – very costly in the heat of battle.

This bug is nothing new of course, having cropped up in various seasons in the past. But, for some time it seemed to have been fixed. Then, at the end of Season 5, a player had the bug ruin one of their games again.

With it so close to the end of the season, there were hopes it would be patched up for Season 6. When the update came along on August 17 though, the patch notes made no mention of a fix for the revive issue.

Reviving your teammates is a fundamental part of any battle royale.

Still, sometimes bugs are fixed in the background without mention in the patch notes. However, it appears that Respawn are yet to crack the mystery of this revive bug, which, while rare, is incredibly frustrating.

It may also lead to players being reported, or receiving abuse from random teammates who think that they’re opponent is deliberately not reviving them.

In actual fact, players are sometimes struck with the bug that simply gives them no prompt to revive their fallen teammate. Just a couple days into Season 6, and one player has already shared a repeat of the bug on Reddit.

No matter what they tried, the game would simply not give them a prompt to revive the fallen Loba player on their team. From Loba’s perspective, it probably looked like their teammates were just being mean.

Respawn themselves are yet to address this bug, and it doesn’t appear on their public Trello board of issues they’re investigating.

Given the attention it has got within the community now though, on numerous occasions, hopefully it can be patched up soon to prevent any more frustrating encounters like this one.

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
