Apex Legends season 5 is finally out, and there’s a ton of new content to explore. Unfortunately, a new update means new bugs. Some players have reporting joining lobbies and seeing nothing but black textures. This isn’t the first time this bug has plagued the battle royale, and Respawn is yet to administer a permanent fix. If you are facing this issue, don’t worry, the solution is simple.
To fix the black textures bug, you will need to repair the game files. This can be done by heading to your Origin game library, right clicking the Apex Legends tile, and choose the repair files option. After the procedure completes, you’re good to go.
Alternatively, players can uninstall Apex Legends outright and reinstall the game. Since the first method may require you to download a lot of files, the reinstall method may be faster. Once the download reaches 42%, players can run the game on low textures whilst the download continues in the background.
That’s all you need to do to fix the Apex Legends black textures bug. If you happen to face any other issues in season 5, you can report it to Respawn via the game’s subreddit.
