Iron sight glitch causes players to miss Wingman shots in Apex Legends

An Apex Legends glitch has been discovered which causes players to miss their shots with the Wingman due to issues with the weapon’s iron sight.

The Wingman is one of the most popular weapons in Apex Legends, as the rapid-fire revolver can allow for the most accurate players to quickly dispatch their enemies in-game.

However, after running some tests, one Apex Legends player, ottrboii, revealed that the Wingman was prone to a glitch which caused some of the weapon’s bullets to become inaccurate.

After setting up a small crosshair to mark the center of his screen when testing the gun, ottrboii explained that the inner reticle on the Wingman’s iron sights would lag behind when a player drags their aim in a certain direction.

“I instantly noticed there was a bit of a drag, where the in-game reticle lags behind the crosshair until you stop moving your mouse,” he stated while demonstrating the lag on-screen.

He then followed up by testing what effect this lag had on his bullet accuracy and surprisingly highlighted that the Wingman’s reticle did not accurately represent where your bullet would hit when moving your aim.

Topic begins at 0:56 for mobile users.

Instead, the bullets would travel directly to the center of your screen regardless of where the inner reticle was placed, meaning that players would likely have to shoot earlier than expected when flicking on to a new target

“The shots would only connect when your aim is on the center of the screen,” he added, before explaining that other scopes and sights, such as the 1x Holo, on the Wingman did not have the same problem as the default iron sight.

Due to the nature of the Wingman’s firing pattern, this glitch could have a huge impact on players’ accuracy as, unlike many other weapons in Apex Legends, it does not leave much room for error while in a gunfight.

However, it is likely that Respawn will be working on a fix for this glitch in a future patch, although they have not confirmed any changes to the Wingman’s iron sights as of yet.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
