Apex Legends dev explain why they won't add a killcam

While killcams are a popular part of many shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield, Respawn confirmed that they won’t add them to Apex Legends, and one of the devs gave a reason for this decision.

When you play a multiplayer online game, you’ll probably find yourself getting killed multiple times during a match. Titles like Battlefield and Warzone come with killcams that allow you to see exactly who got you and how they did it.

Witnessing the method that your enemy used can help you learn some neat new tricks to do better next time. So, it’s no surprise that Apex Legends fans want this feature in the battle royale, but Respawn isn’t planning to implement it.

Apex Legends roster

Respawn’s Design Director Jason McCord responded to a fan’s tweet asking about the possibility of a killcam being added to Apex Legends in the future.

Players have been requesting this for a while since it would let them look at their enemy’s play, and see what mistakes they made so that they can improve. However, the dev made it clear why they won’t add this feature.

“Well, we won’t show you how you died until your whole squad is dead (otherwise you’ll have cheaty info), at which point it’s often not useful anymore,” said McCord. He then explained that they considered having one for the last kill of the game.

“Ah yeah, it’s been talked about for final kill. It’s just one of those things that costs memory on the server so we need to make sure it’s worth it. I think it’s rare enough that you win and need a killcam to know what happened that it hasn’t been a priority.”

While this fan asking the question was satisfied with this answer, this is bound to disappoint a few others that were hoping for killcams to be implemented. It would be extremely taxing of the devs to record and replay every kill.

Even if they don’t add this feature, we might see some alternative in the future, such as letting players see their enemy’s banner with a card showing information on what they used to kill them.

Respawn do listen to the fans as often as they can, and offer viable solutions to problems found in the game. They’ve have now addressed the Valkyrie and Wattson ability issues in a new update.

Weird Apex Legends glitch spawns unlimited loot for players

A new Apex Legends glitch has been discovered that provides players with unlimited loot from one Loot Bin.

An Apex Legends player has discovered a very weird bug that spawns unlimited loot when playing in Season 14.

The Apex Legends developers are constantly looking to improve the player experience by introducing new content and fixing issues the community is experiencing. Just recently, the devs even introduced a quality of life change which made many controller players happy.

Unfortunately, Apex Legends is not immune to bugs and issues, with the launch of Season 14 prompting some new glitches like characters having the wrong abilities and players not receiving rewards for leveling up.

Now, Apex Legends content creator Skeptation has found a new glitch in the Battle Royale which ultimately allows players to exploit Loot Bins to spawn unlimited items.

Skeptation explains how this glitch works in his August 18 YouTube video, stating that when players stand on top of and open a Loot Bin that has a wall behind it, the Loot Bin will close completely after the player has taken the loot inside of it.

If you open the Loot Bin again, it will be completely empty. This is obviously a good trick for covering your tracks and trolling teammates who are looking for loot, however, Skeptation noticed that on some occasions something “weirder” happens.

When messing around with the bug, Skeptation noticed that sometimes the Loot Bin would refresh and spawn more loot after performing the glitch.

Skeptation does say that although he is “not sure what triggers it,” if someone is able to figure out how to do it consistently it would be “broken.”

If this becomes a major issue and players are attempting and being successful with this unlimited loot glitch, perhaps it will provoke Respawn to come up with a fix.

Apex Legends fans come to creepy realization about the Firing Range

Apex Legends players have discovered a detail about the in-game Firing Range that led them to a creepy realization.

Apex Legends firing range

The Apex Legends Firing Range is the perfect spot to visit if you wish you practice with your Legend or weapon, but players have discovered a startling detail about it.

When you hop into a game of Apex Legends, you should expect intense competition from your opponents, so you will need to make sure that you’re using the right Legend and weapons in battle.

The Firing Range provides a nice quiet spot for you to practice your Legend’s abilities along with different guns without having to worry about interference from enemies. However, players have now come to a creepy realization about this location.

Reddit user ‘Crescent-IV’ pointed out in the Apex Legends subreddit that there was a squad counter in their Firing Range, showing how many other players are actually present even if you can’t see them.

The Redditor claimed that these players are “in different ‘instances’ of your lobby to save server space.” So, while you can’t see or interact with them, they are still there practicing with their Legends and weapons.

This came as a surprise to many of the commenters who were previously unaware that this is how the Apex Legends Firing Range works. Many of them shared stories about the times they caught glimpses of other players that were present in the lobby.

One user wrote: “I remember being scared sh**less when I heard a Gibby ult while I was shooting some dummies for the first time. I thought I accidentally got into a game and was tweaking.”

Another user claimed to have heard Seer scanning the area and brought up another instance of being caught by Crypto’s surveillance drone. They reportedly also saw Newcastle’s abilities despite not playing as the Legend.

They then explained that they thought the game was broken every time this happened before adding that it scared them every time. Many of the other commenters also found this experience creepy.

A few of the commenters found this amusing and made jokes about the phenomena. One user sarcastically stated that while there is a proper explanation for this, they consider the Firing Range to be “haunted.”

Other players joined in on the fun, jokingly telling the user that they might be on to something with their theory and that there might actually be ghosts haunting the Apex Legends Firing Range.

While this may be creepy to some players, it isn’t anything to be concerned about this is a rare occurrence and it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll have to worry about getting killed by invisible players.

Apex Legends players sick of “annoying” voice lines and call for change

The Apex Legends characters often express themselves in-game with voice lines, but some players are beginning to dislike the feature.

vantage and echo from apex legends

Apex Legends players have expressed their disdain for “annoying” Legend voice lines in Season 14, calling for the devs to make a change.

Apex Legends Season 14 has got off to a flying start, bringing excitement back to the community with more people playing the game than ever.

With that said, not everything is sunshine and daisies, as not only has Apex pro ImperialHal expressed his dislike of the brand-new Season 14 Legend, Vantage, but now players are also complaining about the Ranked mode.

While it may not seem like a big deal, there have been complaints among the community about Vantage’s quips and Legend voice lines in general, with some branding them as “annoying.”

Reddit user Stir_Fry posted to the Apex Legends subreddit asking the devs if they could “dial it down on the voice lines.”

When talking about the Season 14 Legend Vantage, the OP says that Vantage is more “annoying” than Valkyrie, due to her “constant voice spam” while hitting shots with her Sniper.

The player says that they do not want to hear the “same echo location joke every time (Vantage) uses her tactical.”

Voice lines and quips are essential for character design as they portray the Legend’s personality and individualism from the rest of the roster. Each Legend has a distinctive voice and personality which is easy to recognize, but some feel it is too much.

They explain that the game already has “audio issues,” and with the number of voice lines in the game, it can be distracting “especially in ranked where I’m trying to listen to hear the 4th party coming to kill me.”

The player feels as if the devs should “lower the amount” of voice lines or provide an option to “turn them off completely in the settings.”

Others in the community seem to agree, with 2.5k upvotes and sarcastic comments like “every time I use my Q on vantage I just have to slap my knee, that joke gets even funnier the 80th time she says it in that game.”

Hopefully, Respawn addresses this either in a future update or when creating new characters. Speaking of new Legends, some data miners believe they may have found who the Apex Legends Season 15 Legend will be.
