Apex Legends players have run into an infuriating bug with the treasure packs that it sticking them in an infinite loading screen. However, there are some temporary solutions.
Back at the start of Apex Legends Season 6, treasure packs were introduced as a way to spice up the battle pass and give players something to come back and search for every single day.
As a result, the packs that pop out of supply bins, have become a key part of Apex games as you don’t want to miss out and fall behind on the complete set – meaning you miss out on some cosmetics.
However, in Season 7, the treasure packs have caused a major issue for some players as they’ve become trapped in infinite loading following the end of a match.
PC workarounds for Apex Legends treasure pack glitch
Now, being stuck in an infinite loading screen might sound like a terrifying and game-breaking bug, however, some players have found temporary workarounds that should get the job done for now.
On PC, some players have had success with verifying game files, quitting out of Apex and restarting it, as well as changing the server and even deleting a save folder on their PC.
However, there is no specific one size fits all workaround as of writing for PC players. You’ll likely have to try one or two of the temporary fixes to see if they work for you.
- Try verifying your game files on Steam or Origin
- Try an Alt + F4 quit and reload of Apex
- Change your selected server in the Apex menu’s
- Delete a ‘save’ folder within your Apex files
How to get around Apex Legends treasure pack glitch on console
On the flip side, console players have found simpler workarounds, but the infinite loading screen does still flash up in the meantime.
Players have success with simply spamming the buttons they would normally use to back out of the loading screen and then ready up for a game. Some have reported that it does take a minute or two but if you can hear the ready up sound of the menu, you’re golden.
Players have also had some success with changing their server of choice too. If you don’t know how to do so, you find a guide for that here.
Comments from EA Support members of the EA Forums have suggested that an update was recently rolled out to address this issue but players have reported that it’s still happening.
Ultimately, it will be up to Respawn to fix, and only they know what’s causing the issue so, hopefully, it won’t be all that long before the problem is consigned to a growing list of fixed issues.
