Shroud reveals one Fortnite feature he wishes Apex Legends would add

Twitch star Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed the one thing that he’d like to see Apex Legends take from Fortnite in the future – and it’s not something you might expect. 

As battle royale games continue to innovate and change, the different developers have seemingly taken inspiration from their rivals.

In the case of Apex Legends, Respawn added loot vaults with the addition of World’s Edge, and they were added to Fortnite not long after. Similarly, with Call of Duty Warzone, a train appeared in Verdansk during season five, similar to the one Apex used to have.

These features being used in rival games could simply be because its too good an idea to not use or because fans demand that devs keep up with their rivals. And in the case of Shroud, he’s got something he’d like Apex to take from Fortnite.

During his October 4 stream, the Twitch star had been playing Respawn’s popular battle royale title when he decided to talk about something that the game is lacking.

“This is going to sound weird, but I wish the colors in this game – of the maps – were vibrant like Fortnite,” Shroud said, while waiting to get back into another ranker match session.

“Like, bright blue, bright green, bright orange. But, instead, it’s like this sand kind of beige that looks kind of gross, you know. Like this game, if it had all Fortnite colors, it would be so sick in terms of maps.”

It might not be the biggest, game-changing idea ever, but keeping the maps and scenery fresh is something that Epic has proven can keep players coming back for more.

In the case of Apex Legends, Season 7 isn’t all that far away and it’s expected that players will see a new map, so it remains to be seen if it’ll be the bright and shiny map that Shroud desires.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
