How to fix Apex Legends lighting and texture issues

Unfortunately for console players, this fix is currently only possible on PC, so if you’re having issues on console, you may just have to wait for Respawn to comment on it or, hopefully, release a fix sometime soon.

If you are on PC however, then all you need to do is fire up the Origin client, navigate to Apex Legends in your game library, right-click on the game and click on Repair. Really, that’s it.

The game should then begin repairing, which will likely include re-downloading some files. This is likely to take a bit of time, depending on just how many files need fixing, so you can sit back and relax while the client does all the work.

After the download finishes, you can jump right back into the game and everything should be fixed. Some users have also stated that it fixed the Battle Pass crash bug as well, which is an extra little bonus for anyone having that issue.

Now that everything’s fixed, it’s time to explore the new System Override event and get your hands on some of the best all-new Deja Loot.
