“Unplayable” Apex Legends bug causing UI to completely disappear

A new bug popping up in Apex Legends is causing players UI to randomly disappear during matches, making the game much more difficult, if not outright impossible to play.

In most FPS games, a UI showing information like ammunition, equipment, and health, is considered absolutely essential, and something that players quickly get accustomed too after a few runs.

Unless you’re playing something like a Call of Duty hardcore playlist, players expect to have this information available, which is why this new Apex Legends bug can be so annoying.

Not having any readouts on-screen does make one wonder how a hardcore mode would work in Apex, but it’s definitely not something you want to happen during a regular match.

In the clip above from Reddit user Zerk_Daniels, the player starts out with a regular UI, but it starts to stutter in and out, disappearing at random times, possibly when they look in a certain direction.

The minimap in the upper left is basically the only thing that’s left when the glitch happens, so at the very least it doesn’t leave him flying completely blind, but he’s still not working with much.

“What isn’t included in the video is that you also can’t ping, because you can’t see where,” Zerk added. “Your health doesn’t show, you can’t see if you’re jumpmaster, text chat is invisible and also your inventory and healing wheel don’t show up making it impossible to know any useful information you need in the game.”

“It seems to happen much more on Kings Canyon than World’s Edge. The bug came up with the launch on Season 6 and really ruins the fun for me and other people that experience the same problem.”

This Apex Legends UI glitch is basically a legendary-difficulty mode no one asked for.

The odd thing is that you could still switch weapons, throw your grenades, and use abilities, but not being able to communicate with your team other than voice chat is definitely a massive handicap. Just think about how many times you ping the map during a round; now, imagine not being able to do that at all.

There’s no clear-cut way to tell what causes this bug to flare up and when, so if you’re running around on Kings Canyon, be prepared for it to suddenly strike at any moment. Until Respawn Entertainment address it, looks like some players will have to deal with a hardcore mode no one asked for.

Apex Legends leaks hints at vehicles coming in Season 7

Some new leaked animations in Apex Legends are potentially hinting at vehicles coming to the popular battle royale title in Season 7.

As far as battle royale games go, Apex Legends is one of the last that doesn’t offer players vehicles for faster rotation and to hit different areas of the map quicker. The likes of Warzone and Fortnite have had vehicles for mobility for a long time at this point, while Apex players haven’t had that opportunity.

That said, always looking for ways to offer fans something fresh and exciting in the game, the Apex devs appear to be following suit, if recent leaks are anything to go by.

On top of a weapon charm, some new animations definitely look to prove that we’re getting vehicles sooner rather than later.

As shared by renowned dataminer Shrugtal on Twitter, the Ride Share charm has two passenger seats alongside the driver’s seat, and it’s a hover vehicle.

That’s not all, though: he found some new animations that all but confirm the existence of vehicles in the Apex Games.

As you can see in this tweet below, there are animations in the 6.1 patch for a driver and passenger hovering while seated — perfectly fitting for a Hover Vehicle.

As many people have pointed out, the current Apex Legends maps, World’s Edge and Kings Canyon, are a fair share smaller than maps in other battle royale titles, so vehicles may not be as fitting in the game as they are in others. One common theory is that the vehicles may be on rails, similar to the train, rather than being drivable for players to freely traverse the map.

However, the new Olympus map has been speculated about for months now, so it is absolutely possible that they come into the game purely for that — also suggesting that Olympus will be the game’s biggest map yet.

Right now, we can’t confirm for absolute certainty that this means vehicles will be coming to the game, and we should never take leaks as gospel, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see this happen. The big question is how it all plays out.
