Season 6 of Apex Legends has been live for almost two weeks now and since then, players are starting to take notice of some secret and odd features within the game itself, including a strange “Knock Knock” easter egg.

On August 18, 2020, Season 6 of the popular battle royale game Apex Legends started. After its launch, players were able to try out the new Legend Rampart, the new Volt submachine gun, new map updates, and more.

All these features, however, were known before the season began, making their addition not surprising in the least. What is surprising, however, are the additions that were made to the game that after it launched, which some players have slowly started to notice.

One such player is YouTuber The Gaming Merchant, who recently made a list of some of the strangest changes made to the game when the new season started.

The words “Knock Knock” are mysteriously written outside of the in-game map.

Easily the strangest is the fact that the words “Knock Knock” are now lightly written in the top right-hand corner of the in-game map. While The Gaming Merchant’s theory is that it could be related to a Halloween event, it’s really anyone’s best guess as to what it could be referring to.

Another thing he points out are the boxes hidden around the strange boxes hidden around the map that say “Inactive” on them.

Leaks have revealed that these boxes are actually gravity lifts that will essentially lift players up at some point in the future, but the “release date” of this function is unclear.

Another mysterious feature on the map right now is that of the inactive boxes, which have been leaked to be gravity lifts.

One of the last major features in the video isn’t much of a feature at all. As The Gaming Merchant points out, the titles for each in-game digital comic books all talk feature a number that’s seemingly counting down from seven.

For example, the first comic has the title “Rolling Sevens in Love” while the second one is titled “Six Stitches.”

As he speculates, with a new comic being added every week, it could be counting down to something. That being said, like the “Knock Knock” easter egg, there’s really no telling what it means or what it could be leading to.

All in all, the new secrets are fascinating and if you want more details about them, you should check out the video as it does a good job at explaining them all. Here’s hoping we find out what they all mean soon.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
