Last update:

Season 13 of Apex Legends is underway, and players are still learning how to navigate the reworked ranked mode. The season launch was a success, with the game exceeding its maximum number of concurrent players, but the Season 13 update had a few bugs that needed to be fixed. The new patch 1.96 fixes some of the biggest issues with the Season 13 Saviors.

Audio issues are finally fixed

While Apex Legends’ gameplay leaves little to complain about, the sound department has always been a bit lacking. Many in the Apex community attribute Apex’s audio issues to the source engine, but Respawn may have finally come up with some tweaks to fix some of the audio issues. The new update fixes the echo effect that some players are experiencing unless they change their audio setting to “uncompressed stereo”.

Loba’s bracelet has been repaired

A number of players have stopped playing Loba due to a bug with her wristband. Loba can throw her bracelet and she is teleported to where the bracelet lands. The problem is that in Storm Point, the bracelet can go out of bounds and in places not intended, which can be very frustrating. With Storm Point being this season’s ranked mode, Loba players were frustrated with the bug. Respawn has identified the issue and fixed it in the new update.

Newcastle are getting fixes for their ultimate

Newcastle is the new legend of Apex Legends on PC and console. At launch, he was hailed as a competitor to Gibraltar as a defensive shield character. While a lot of players love the character, we can’t ignore the fact that some parts of his kit were completely broken and not working properly. The legend sometimes got bogged down in all sorts of terrain and became a sitting duck. This was a serious problem as failing the ultimate ability meant you would be suspended in the air as a Newcastle player, making you an easy target. The new update fixed the issue and now you should be able to enjoy the legend without any issues.

There are also other fixes in the new update and the patch does not add any new content. Events should start dropping in the coming weeks with a Legacy Collecting Event.
