Popular battle royale game Apex Legends has had its fair share of glitches and bugs since the games release back in February, but this newly discovered issue with doors might be among the most frustrating.

Despite Respawn’s best efforts, Apex Legends is not free from in-game glitches that can spoil a match for their players and new ones are being found since the launch of Season 2.

This new Apex Legends glitch which was found included some of the doors inside the popular Bunker location in King’s Canyon, one of the locations to survive from Season 1.

One player discovered just how lethal doors could be, if you’re unlucky enough, after watching his teammate die instantly due to this bizarre bug.

He and his team had just finished battling it out with another squad when he walked out of a door inside the Bunker to collect some loot from their death boxes

His teammate followed shortly after, however, he did not have the same luck with passing through the door, which was being held open by an enemy’s death box, as it killed him instantly much to the shock of him and his team.

Respawn developers currently seem to be unaware of this frustrating glitch, as it has not yet been pinned on their public glitch tracker.

The “Apex Tracker” was released in early July in order to inform fans what the developers were working on and offers players the chance to issue any bugs that can ruin players experiences, such as this one.

It seems as if the main cause of the glitch was due to the player becoming trapped between the door and the death box.

Although with how likely kills are to take place within the bunker, this glitch could affect a lot more Apex Legends players in the future.

Apex Legends players angered by Holo-Day Bash skin bundles

The Holo-Day Bash event is back in Apex Legends for 2020, running through the whole of December, and has brought back the fan-favorite LTM, Winter Express. Although players are loving the mode, there has also been some controversy over the cosmetic bundles added to the store.

As with each new event in Apex Legends, a handful of both new and returning cosmetics are back, available to purchase as bundles in the in-game store.

Although there are new skins for Legends like Loba and Revenant, and some incredible new weapon skins, there is some disagreement with how the bundles have been put together.

Certain weapon skins are clearly aligned with specific Legend skins, and were shown off together in the Holo-Day Bash trailer. But, these weapon and Legend skins have conspicuously been split up – appearing to force players into buying two bundles if they want the matching skins.

This was first highlighted on Twitter and Reddit, with posts going viral about the seemingly deliberate move to mix up the weapon and Legend skins.

For example, if a player wants to have both Loba’s Legendary skin and match it with the legendary Spitfire skin in the same style, they will need to buy two bundles – while the Crypto skin matches with the P2020 skin in Loba’s bundle.

The bundles appear to mismatched the skins – and players think it’s deliberate.

“I was willing to pay the 25 bucks for the Loba skin WITH her gun. I’m not gonna break my wallet trying to buy both,” one player commented on Reddit. Other players called the bundles “anti-consumer.”

“It’s bullsh*t for people who bought the collection event last year, too,” another player said. “The new weapon skins are paired with old legend skins, and new legend skins are paired with old weapon skins.”

Season 7 has already had a couple of other monetization-related issues in Apex Legends. The most notable was due to a change to the battle pass system, which made it harder to level up at the same rate as past Seasons. Players accused the developers of doing this to encourage more people to buy levels.

Then, there was another issue after the price of the Legendary Hunt skin bundle was increased from 6,000 Apex coins to 7,300 without warning. However, Respawn later clarified that this was a mistake, and would refund the difference to anyone who had paid the higher price.

It’s unlikely the arrangement of these bundles are a mistake however, or will be changed. But, feedback from players may make the developers consider their bundle arrangements more carefully for future events.
