The Apex Legends Patch 1.82 update has arrived and it has brought some much-needed fixes for some major bugs, including Crypto’s drone crashing the game and Pathfinder’s broken cooldown.

Respawn Entertainment are always fixing bugs and glitches in Apex Legends, and Season 10 has already gone through multiple updates, including the 1.771.78, and 1.79 update patches.

All of these brought fixes for some of the major bugs in Apex Legends, and now the v1.82 update will be focusing on issues like Crypto’s broken drone and Pathfinder’s 30-second cooldown in Arenas.

Apex Legends Crypto Character

One of the major fixes in this Apex Legends update went to Pathfinder. This character kept facing a constant 30-second grapple cooldown in Arenas, regardless of the distance at which it’s used.

The developers have addressed that issue and also brought a fix for Crypto. This Legend’s drone kept crashing games when players flew it into the map room on King’s Canyon.

Since Crypto is one of the Legends with the lowest pickrate, it’s vital to make sure that he doesn’t have any game-breaking bugs and glitches that will drive away players from choosing him.

The developers also implemented fixes for smaller quality-of-life problems, like animated banners crashing the game, and the Dropship that revives dead players having no audio while it was overhead.

Here are all the fixes in the Apex Legends 1.82 patch notes:

  • We’ve resolved an issue that caused players to be randomly unreadied while matchmaking in Ranked
  • Fixed a couple of issues that were causing animated banner poses to cause hangs or crashes
  • Improved protection against DDoS attacks
  • Fixed audio and rendering issues with respawn ships
  • Fixed an issue with using Crypto’s drone in the Map Room
  • Fixed an issue with Pathfinder having a constant 30s grapple cooldown regardless of distance in Arenas
  • Pathfinder Beacons Scanned tracker now updates correctly
  • Fixed melee and spin-up exploits related to mobile Sheila
  • The raven in Bloodhound’s Niflheim Hundr skin will now correctly show as white in the lobby
  • Stability fixes  and memory optimizations

While some of these may initially seem less important than others, the developers need to ensure that the battle royale title is functioning properly before Season 11 goes live in November.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.

Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

When did Apex Legends come out?

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
