Apex Legends players are definitely excited to try out the new offerings that came packaged with the Voidwalker update, creating instant chaos at the start of matches.

Respawn Entertainment have fully launched their next event for their popular battle royale, which introduced a new Town Takeover. While the last one was inspired by Octane and his thrill-seeking history, this players will be exploring Wraith’s past.

In doing so, the Apex Legends devs added in a “functioning prototype portal” so that players could hop into the mysterious research site that’s been unearthed on the Apex Games battlefield.

But players too eager to explore the new area have been bombarding the point of interest called Singh Labs Interior, leading to hysterical brawls and impressive multi-kills.

In a Reddit post, user ‘givaar’ showed what happens when someone queues “up straight after a new update” that brings shiny new content to ravage through.

As they panned the camera backwards, they could see a swarm of players diving straight for the new portal on the map.

The player then found themselves in a free-for-all fist fight as people frantically searched the corridors for any kind of weapon.

While they were eventually able to win out against three people and survive the initial onslaught, the halls were filled with echoes of calamity as the kill feed was at a near-constant scroll with freshly eliminated players.

A separate clip by user ‘Rus_Nix’ showed just how well Caustic mains are doing now that the most popular locale is a claustrophobic facility that’s ripe for a Toxic Trapper to go to work.

After seeing how many people were about to land in the new location, the Caustic player can be heard saying: “Wait wait wait, I got this. Don’t even worry.”

As soon as they came out of the portal, Rus_Nix instantly spread out Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps which was unsurprisingly effective, and made the streamer high-pitched with excitement seeing as their name was being spammed on the kill feed.

The new Apex Legends Town Takeover has given the game new life for many, but it might be best to avoid Singh Labs and its interior until the hype settles down a bit.

Apex Legends fixes annoying Rampart & Treasure Pack bugs in Dec 1 patch

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.
