Respawn Entertainment, developers of Apex Legends, have informed NICKMERCS that the current issues with the game’s audio are their top priority amid frustrations from pros.

Apex Legends pros and various other players have been lately voicing their issues with the game, ranging from bullets leaving no tracers, to missing gunfire, and footstep audio, to even demanding a Warzone 2 anti-cheat features following an increase in reports of hacking.

Respawn has been actively tackling any issues that have popped up in the current season, and, just last week, announced that they are investigating an issue crashing players’ games.

Replies to the announcement have been full of people asking the devs to tackle other issues, but that naturally takes time. However, fans might not be waiting long as the developers messaged some pro players privately.
