Shroud explains one change he would make to Apex Legends supply bins

Supply bins in Apex Legends are almost always great to come across – you can easily grab a weapon or shields, and even pull some high-tier loot from them. But, Shroud isn’t completely convinced and has explained one thing he would change about them.

Shroud has played a healthy amount of Apex in the time since its release and has become somewhat of a master player – his Apex Predator rank can attest to that.

With so much time playing the game, it’s fair to say shroud has some clear-cut opinions, and he’s spoken out about what needs to change in Apex Legends’ supply bins.

Supply bins are a good source of loot, ranging from weapons, to meds, to explosives.

Comparing the game to new battle royale title Spellbreak, shroud says: “What Spellbreak does is try to give you better RNG on what you’re missing [when opening a chest], and that’s how the loot bins should work.”

He went on to explain the logistics behind this. “Every loot bin, if you’re missing shield, or you’re missing meds or whatever, it should prioritize that.”

His teammate joked that it “sounds like a lot to ask for” and while shroud initially agreed, he went on to change his mind and say that he “doesn’t think it is.”

Sometimes the contents of a loot bin can be make or break for your success in the game depending on what you get in it, so this change would reduce the frustrating occasions when you just can’t find the last item you need.

However, RNG is an expected and vital part of the battle royale genre – in itself, the games are supposed to be a little more random than your standard FPS, which is why the supply bins don’t simply give you what you need.

That said, it would maybe put players on more of a level playing field if they were given items they need rather than just anything that pops up, and it would be interesting to see how that would alter the meta and gameplay in Apex Legends.

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.
