Apex Legends Season 2.

The highly-anticipated second round of seasonal content for the popular battle royale was released on July 2, with Respawn already hard at work with fixes and tweaks.

The developers have already dropped a quick patch that addresses broken challenges and exit penalties, but they aren’t the only things that they are looking to rectify – as they’ve released a full breakdown of their upcoming work. 

Respawn EntertainmentWattson was released in the season two update alongside a ton of bug fixes.

According to their newly set-up Trello Board, Respawn is currently investigating 11 different big bugs and errors that have been reported via the game’s subreddit, Twitter, and Twitch streams. These range from stats not tracking to being able to start a game due to ‘party not ready’.

Players have also reported additional errors like their UI disappearing, being given non-optimal data centers – which can cause unnecessary lag – as well as having the game crash when using a specific loading screen. 

A full look at the ‘bigger’ bugs that Respawn are currently addressing.

Of course, with an additional level of transparency, players can follow the progress of these fixes and be aware of just how they’ll be available in-game – be it a full client update or a server patch. 

Respawn also state, in their board FAQs, that the list will be updated on a weekly basis – usually on a Monday afternoon – so if you report something game-breaking, don’t worry if you don’t see it being investigated immediately. 

However, not every error will be given a spot on the board. The developers state that the ‘bigger issues’ that are affecting players and bugs that they can share progress on will be listed.

A major error, like the knock-down bug that has plagued the game for quite some time, will be given a focus point on the list – just so players know it is being altered. 

While you will be able to follow the progress of a specific fix, there isn’t going to be a countdown to when a patch is released so you’ll just have to keep your eye on the game itself or follow the developer check-in posts from the subreddit.

Until then, it’s probably best to keep dropping into Kings Canyon and reporting anything that is out of place.

Apex Legends leaks reveal Pathfinder Town Takeover coming in Season 7

Pathfinder will be the next Apex Legends character to get a Town Takeover, and the first to have their own personalized POI on new map Olympus, according to playtester images that have leaked ahead of the Season 7 update.

Town Takeovers are one of the most exciting events in Apex Legends. Not only do they bring new lore and backstories for their focal legend, but they also add special points of interest to the battle royale map as well, branded in unique ways.

Octane, Wraith, and Crypto have already enjoyed Town Takeovers on Kings Canyon, while Apex Legends’ second map, World’s Edge, hosted Mirage and Bloodhound events over the past few seasons. Now it looks like it’s finally Pathfinders turn.

Pathfinder looks set to become the first Apex Legends character with a Town Takeover on Olympus.

According to leaked playtester images shared by dataminer Biast12, the loveable robot will be getting a huge POI when Apex Legends shifts to new map Olympus in Season 7. 

The new Pathfinder point of interest will be a massive boxing arena.

In the leaked POI image, which is slightly blurry and back-and-white, Pathfinder can be seen wearing his heirloom gloves, and posing on a poster emblazoned with his name. The circle building behind it certainly looks like a sports stadium too.

Biast12 also said the leaked image only shows “part of [the whole] Pathfinder’s Town Takeover.” There is also allegedly a stadium “on the other side of the wall.”

Considering it’s just a single image that’s leaked so far, it’s tough to get a good picture of what the Town Takeover may actually look like. Biast12 did tease it could have “a bunch of zip lines everywhere” after replying to one fan’s comment.

When will Pathfinder’s Town Takeover start?

The Pathfinder Town Takeover will be in Season 7, and appears to be hosted on Olympus. Beyond that, however, a possible start date for the event is a little hazy.

The Mirage Voyage point of interest is the closest Town Takeover date-wise that we have to go off. It was released on Dec. 12, 2019, two months into Season 3. If Respawn sticks to the same formula, we could see Pathfinder’s arena at a similar time of year.

In fact, it could basically be bang on the same week. Season 7 arrives on Nov. 4 ⁠— yes, it’s still set for then, despite a little update scare this week ⁠— and eight weeks after that lands on Tuesday, December 8. That’s about as close as you can get!

Town Takeover teasers usually start earlier too. We may start to see Pathfinder teasers for the arena in mid-November, once we’ve settled into life on Olympus.

Pathfinder fans will be loving Apex Legends Season 7, from the sounds of it.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for official confirmation from Respawn about the exciting new takeover. The developers have never commented on Town Takeover leaks before, so the first time we see anything new could be in-game on Dec. 8.

Whether they comment or not, however, it looks like there’s a lot of exciting new content on the way at the start of next month. Season 7 will finally arrive, along with a new Legend, a brand-new map, vehicles, clubs, and more.
