Apex Legends devs confirm plans to fix frustrating infinite Heat Shield exploit

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they plan to fix the exploit lets Apex Legends players infinitely use Heat Shields.

Heat Shields in Apex Legends

A new Apex Legends exploit has been discovered by players, which allows them to infinitely use the brand new Heat Shield during a match, and Respawn plan to respond accordingly.

Respawn Entertainment brought some cool additions to Apex Legends in the Chaos Theory Collection Event, including a new survival item known as the Heat Shield. It protects you from getting hurt when you’re outside of the circle.

Players have been requesting this kind of item for a while, so it’s a welcome addition to the battle royale. However, some of them have discovered a way to maneuver the Heat Shield so that it can be infinitely reused.

Several clips have been posted online which showcase this exploit, and it has gained a lot of traction among the Apex community.

One notable example came from Reddit user JJustin_144, who credited his brother for bringing this glitch to his attention. The comments were filled with fans speculating how this will affect the battle royale’s meta.

Respawn Entertainment have taken notice of this, and they have no plans to let this kind of bug remain in the game. The Apex Legends Game Director, Chad Grenier, revealed all the bug fixes coming in next major patch that is on March 15.

The list included a fix for the Heat Shield exploit, since many players have been using it to secure match victories unfairly. This means that the item has given players more flexibility than Respawn intended.

This can mess with the game’s meta, so it makes sense why the devs would want to respond as soon as possible. Recently, a bug with Loba’s jump drive was discovered as well, and they reassured fans that they’ll investigate it.

Hopefully, the Heat Shield exploit will get patched up soon. We’ll keep checking for updates on this situation, and will let you know when we learn something new.

EA employee accused of stealing & selling Apex Legends accounts

A Reddit user has accused someone who they believe is an EA employee of stealing Apex Legends accounts and selling them off.

An Apex Legends player has accused an EA employee of stealing their account and selling it off to make a profit, suggesting they have done it to multiple players.

Apex Legends players should be feeling pretty excited for the game’s future, especially since Season 11 was announced, promising fans a brand new map Storm Point, as well as Legend Ash.

Having said that, it isn’t all sunshine, as one player has accused an individual, which they believe may be an EA employee, of stealing accounts and selling them off to make their own “side business.”

The player accusing the possible EA employee is karankhushalani, claiming that their account is one of many that has supposedly been stolen and sold off. The post is very long and detailed and even has some links to screenshots which the user claims as proof of the EA employee’s apparent theft.

Essentially, the player had a stacked account, with “60,000 kills, multiple Predator and Master badges, 9 heirlooms, and 650 legendaries,” and is claiming this is the reason his account was stolen. The player met a “random guy” while playing in EU servers who was impressed by his account.

The player then showed the random teammate their skins and Heirlooms on a Discord stream. An hour later, the account was hacked, and even after getting it back through EA support, the account email was changed once again.

The player who he claims hacked his account reportedly stated they told him that they work for EA, and that he knows the EA support worker he has been chatting to, stating the worker’s name which he shouldn’t have the information about. The player has gone back and forth trying to claim their account back to no prevail.

The support lines told him there was nothing they can do and in no way the person that is hacking him is associated with EA. Fast forward, the player finds an EA customer service rep and they are also dumbfounded at what is happening to the account.

The player’s account is banned for cheating and then it is almost immediately overturned, adding fuel to the possible EA employee claim: “At this point, I’m more and more sure that he’s an actual EA employee gone rogue.”

The player is still fighting to get their account back and claims that even some customer service employees are starting to think it could be someone within the company. Further, the user also claims that this same hacker has committed the theft to several other players:

“Also I have a friend of a friend who has had a 4 heirloom account stolen from him by the EXACT same person (we matched discord ID’s) and I found 10 similar threads with the exact same circumstances while googling this.”

However, these are just claims and are in no way confirmed pieces of information. It is possible this hacker could just be saying he is an EA employee to aggravate the victim, An EA developer named Brad has now reached out to karankhushalani to help with the situation, assuring them that the company is looking into the situation.

We will update this story with any further information if any is made available.

Apex Legends Season 11: Guide to Storm Point’s Wildlife

The Apex Legends Season 11 Storm Point map will feature new Wildlife never seen before in the battle royale, but how does it actually work?

Published

Apex Legends’ new Storm Point map is set to be introduced in Season 11, bringing a new Wildlife system to the battle royale. Here’s how the critters will aid you in battle.

Players are already hyped for Apex Legends Season 11, not only because they will be getting a brand new Legend in Ash, but also because a brand new map will be introduced known as Storm Point.

Respawn Entertainment gave us a great look at Storm Point in their recent blog, showing off all the POIs the map has to offer. As well as that, the developers also gave us details on how the Wildlife will work on Storm Point, so here’s everything you need to know.

What is Apex Legends storm Point Wildlife?

Apex Legends ash and rat

Although we’ve seen Wildlife in Apex Legends before, such as the Flyers on Kings Canyon and the Prowlers on World’s Edge, Storm Point is set to take Wildlife to another level.

The Wildlife will be everywhere on Storm Point, so for those interested in the way it will work and also how it can benefit you and the team, here’s all you need to know.

There will be loads of Wildlife on Storm Point, all of which will be located in different areas. Some animals players will be familiar with, others are completely new to the game.

The Wildlife will include:

  • Prowlers
  • Flyers
  • Spiders
  • Goliath

Each of these critters will have their own designated locations, which they will not be able to escape from. Since the official map was revealed by Principal Level Designer Rodney Reece on Twitter, we finally got a better understanding of where the Wildlife will be situated on the map.

Prowlers

Prowlers will work similarly to how they have in the past, except this time they will spawn out of their mud mounds and attack players in packs who enter their territory. Their health is similar to what it is on World’s Edge and players will need to eliminate them all as they spawn to reap the rewards.

Spiders

The Spiders are said to have less health than the Prowlers, but are much faster and also hatch out of eggs as players enter their camp. Spiders have ranged attacks, so they will be more of an annoyance from far rather than being up in your face.

Flyers

The Flyers will also work similarly to how we’ve seen them before, as players will need to look to the skies and take them out to gain the rewards from them. Flyers are spawned individually across the map and their positions are randomly selected from a predetermined list of possible spawn locations each match.

Goliath

Lastly, we have the Goliath, which hasn’t been officially revealed but according to leaks it will feature in the map on launch. This is a huge beast that players will need to take down, it will have a bunch of health and potentially do a lot of damage to players. However, the rewards will no doubt be worth it.

The Goliath will also have its own camp, but unlike the Spiders and Prowlers, the Goliath only has one spawn location.

Storm Point Wildlife rewards

Wildlife Nests are denoted by the red markers on your minimap. All nests are static and finite, meaning every match they are always in the same place, with the same type of wildlife and only small variations in their numbers.

Wildlife respect their Nests’ boundaries and are aggressive only to trespassers that enter into their domain. Once a Wildlife Nest is cleared, it is removed from the map and your squad can reap the rewards.

Now a bit more on the types of rewards you’ll gain from battling the fauna of Storm Point:

  • Smart Loot Drops: On death, Prowlers and Spiders have a chance to drop attachments and ammo for your squad based on your weapon loadouts, in addition to a few consumables and other goodies.
  • EVO Points: A small percentage of all damage dealt to wildlife is rewarded towards your EVO Armor. This includes Flyers
  • Crafting Materials: Clearing a Nest rewards a lump of crafting materials which are divided evenly among each squad member in the nest at time of completion.

So, as you can see, the Wildlife in Storm Point will be vital for teams in order to get the best loot and also evolve their shields. Further, for those teams who may have had an awkward start to the game and weren’t able to get the best loot, these camps will definitely help out.

Apex Legends Shadow Royale is available during the new Halloween-themed event, Monsters Within. Here’s everything there is to know, including the start date, how to play, and challenges.

Apex Legends‘ new Monsters Within Event sees the return of Shadow Royale, a Halloween-inspired mode that the fans adore due to its high octane, thrilling gameplay.

Although the Monsters Within Event dropped October 12, Apex Legends Shadow Royale has only just become available, but only for a limited time.

Many are wondering how it works, and what kind of challenges to expect for it, so here’s everything you need to know.

Apex Legends Shadow Royale start date

The Apex Legends Shadow Royale LTM will officially go live in the final week of the Monsters Within Event on October 26.

As the event ends on November 2, we expect this to be the end of the Shadow Royale LTM.

How to play Shadow Royale

Hosted by Revenant, Shadow Royale will be available to all players as an LTM. You will be able to select the mode on the lobby screen the same way you can change between Battle Royale and Arenas.

The mode is simple, players will drop into a map just like any other trios game, except when a player is eliminated, they return in “Shadow Form” to protect their squad.

In Shadow Form, players have enhanced movement capabilities similar to the Titanfall games, such as faster running, wall-running, and double jumping. When you are in Shadow Form, the goal is to try your best to protect your teammates from other enemy squads and shadows.

While you are a shadow, you only have a melee attack, so make the most of your enhanced movement speed and unlimited lives to overwhelm enemy teams. You will be eliminated from the game if all members of the squad become shadows. The last squad left alive with a living member/members will take victory in this mode.

Shadow Royale challenges
