Respawn Entertainment have responded to a bug that is causing Apex Legends players with Twitch Prime to not receive their special Wattson skin which is included for free as part of this month’s loot.

Twitch Prime loot is becoming a popular reward in many games, with developers teaming up with the streaming platform to reward Amazon Prime members with special cosmetic items or in-game bonuses.

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that there will be four loot drops during Apex Legends Season 2, but players are reporting an issue with the first pack, which includes a special skin for Wattson.

Apex Legends players have reported that although they appear to have redeemed the Twitch Prime loot on the site, the skin isn’t being added to their game account, and have been unable to find or select it.

A Reddit thread on /r/ApexLegends posted by /u/TakemySteak_MedWell features other players complaining about how they have yet to recieve their cosmetic, despite going through the steps required to unlock it.

In response to the issues, Respawn have confirmed that they are working with Twitch to try and fix the problem, although they didn’t reveal what was causing it, and asked players to include the platform and username they linked to as they try to figure out what’s gone wrong.

Community Manager Jay Frechette also offered a couple of things that players should check if they have yet to receive their Wattson skin, including:

  • Making sure to check in the right spot when trying to equip them as it is not a Legendary variant.
  • Take note of the platform that you are linking the accounts to if you play on multiple accounts.
  • Make sure you received an in-game message confirming that you got the reward.

Respawn Entertainment haven’t provided a timeline as to when they will be able to fix this issue, but if the developers are currently looking into it, it shouldn’t be long before you get your Wattson skin added to your account.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
