Seagull baffled at Apex Legends no reg shots with Kraber and Arc Star

Former Overwatch pro Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned felt the impact that the hit registration (reg) issues can have in Apex Legends – making him miss a would-be incredible Kraber headshot and point blank Arc Star stick.

Luckily, Respawn Entertainment are already fully aware of the issue as an influx of player complaints and community backlash have echoed the same plea for the devs to address the frequent issue.

For a lot of players, that patch couldn’t come soon enough as they’re finding the most bizarre forms of hit reg affecting their games.

Seagull came across at least two instances in a single stream in which the Apex issues derailed what would otherwise be clean takedowns.

While navigating an extended firefight, the streamer was surprised by a player making their way up from below. Instinctively, they flicked to their position to throw what would have been a point blank Arc Star stick.

“Oh sh*t,” Seagull said, realizing that the explosive didn’t quite stick to its intended target. Even though the sound queue went off, the former Dallas Fuel Flex star was surprised to see the Arc Star disappear in totality.

“‘Oh well, that sounded like it stuck by the way,’” Seagull read before responding. “Yeah, I know it did. I got very confused because I heard a stuck noise with an Arc Star.”

The player was downed almost immediately after the error, and it wouldn’t be the last time they noticed an unfortuitous hit reg issue.

Later in the stream, Seagull was equipped with a Kraber .50-cal Sniper and perfectly predicted the trajectory of an Octane boosted by his Launch Pad.

But the ensuing shot didn’t register to the jettisoned player, even as the game showed a splatter of blood coming from the Adrenaline Junkie’s head.

Seagull managed to get immediate recompense with Octane’s teammate instead, so the hit reg didn’t have too much of a heinous consequence that time around.

Though hit reg has been a persistent issue in Apex Legends, the community are excited that the Respawn team have the problem in their sights for a fix that will hopefully come soon.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix coming for frustrating Season 7 Clubs bug

The Apex Legends community has been encountering a bizarre bug that’s randomly kicking people out of their Club, even if they were the one to create the group in the first place – and Respawn is on the case.

The hyped Season 7 feature finally let Apex players initiate randos into recurring squadmates by inviting them into the social hub for friends. This was integrated for the purposes of growing communities and making teams easier to fill.

But now, some Club creators are getting kicked out of their own group and even finding that the guilds they made are getting deactivated with little explanation to account for.

While Clubs can get instantly deleted if they’re found with inappropriate names or the like, players have been reporting no such infractions while still getting ousted from their org.

Got removed from my own club that i created? my friend who is admin was not even online in the past few hours. and cant find any club if i click find club. Other clubs got deleted aswell? from apexlegends

“My club was up since Season 7 dropped,” user ‘IIIOxygenRSC’ wrote. “No offensive name or tag, no offensive text chat, usernames or anything. Logged onto apex today with a notification that said my club had been deleted by club admins. Anyone else or any idea why?”

It’s been happening more to different people, prompting Respawn Entertainment to take a closer look at what could be causing the problematic trend.

Clubs Designer at Respawn, Chad Armstrong gave a little comfort to people who’ve been dealing with the glitch: “Thanks for letting me know. We’re looking into this now.”

Now that the developers are on the case, it could soon lead to a meaningful fix to why people are getting met with a random ‘Exited Club’ notification as soon as they log into the game.

“Several players are reporting that they were removed from their club by the admins, even if THEY were the admins,” The Dot’s Pedro Peres said. “This is probably a major bug with Apex and I know Respawn will push out a fix for it ASAP.”

Though his incident was quickly resolved, more players have been wondering if that would be the case with them as well.

The Apex devs could be working on a speedy fix for Clubs to make sure their new Season 7 feature is working without a hitch.
