Respawn announce Apex Legends PC update for June 20 – Patch notes

Respawn Entertainment has announced that an Apex Legends client patch will be dropping on June 20, exclusively for PC players.

Just a day after Respawn teased a possible Flyer event headed to Apex Legends, the company announced that a PC-only client patch is headed to the PC version of the game very soon.

The update is just some behind-the-scenes server stuff, focusing on data centers and server-based errors, so if you’re hoping it’ll be some exclusive dragon content for PC, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesNew Flyer updates won’t be in this patch – sorry!

Though this patch isn’t the most interesting, it will deliver some improvements PC players have been asking for for a while.

The data center list is being revamped to make it easier for people to navigate through when selecting a server, and will be sorted by ping by default. Game clients will also now be sending user inputs to the server at a higher rate.

Some players have encountered an error where they’ve been booted back to the main lobby for no reason, under the error code ‘leaf.’ The patch won’t outright fix this issue, though measures to find out what’s causing the bug will be added.

The patch is only coming to PC for now as a test to see how it runs, but will hopefully be released for all systems in the near future.

Full June 20 patch notes

You can read the complete patch notes for June 20 below.

  • Datacenter improvements to make the list easier to understand and use:
    • List will be sorted by ping by default.
    • The selected data center will be highlighted in orange.
    • Focused/hovered data centers will still be highlighted in grey.
  • Right clicking a data center will no longer make it look selected
    • Right click wouldn’t actually select the data center but would still highlight the selection which could be confusing.
  • Clients will now send user input to the server at a higher rate.
  • Code: Leaf error
    • There is still some work to do on our end to nail down what is causing this error. In this patch we’re adding more telemetry to help us identify specifically how this error is being caused. You may start to get a code:net error instead of code:leaf. That is intended and part of the telemetry we added. We’ll be continuing to investigate this issue and it remains a priority.

Bizarre Apex Legends bug is teleporting players across the map

Apex Legends players have run into a huge issue where they are teleported across the map if they’re knocked after trying to use a Replicator. 

With Apex Legends Season 7 on the horizon, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale are looking forward to what the next big update will bring – including a new legend, a potential new map, as well as changes to the current legends and weapon pool. 

However, in the meantime, they’re still running around King’s Canyon and World’s Edge, trying to rack up wins and pick up the last few bits of the Season 6 battle pass. 

Yet, some players have been hit with an unusual problem that is teleporting them back to a Replicator if they’re knocked down during a firefight.

Replicators are used to craft items in Apex Legends.

The unusual issue was flagged by Reddit user i7estrox, who showed that it all stemmed from them trying to use a Replicator. One side of the crafting machine was inaccessible, but they were fine to use the others.

As they progressed on in their match, i7estrox engaged a team of enemies and despite getting some decent shots off, they were knocked down. However, instead of staying where they were knocked, the Redditor was sent hurtling across the map. 

They were taken right back to the side of the Replicator that was inaccessible at first, and left to lay there as their teammates continued on fighting.

It seems likely that, given i7estrox tried to access the inaccessible side of the Replicator at first, the game registered them as still using it for some reason, even though they’d moved on and that’s why they were teleported back.

Other players have confirmed that they’ve fallen victim to the same problem, so Respawn might have to get their skates on and get the issue ironed out for Season 7 – unless they have already. But, we’ll just have to keep an eye on that.
