Apex Legends Patch 1.2 Breaks Octane’s Jump Pad

Apex Legends is Respawn’s first BR game and it has left quite a mark on the genre. Unique mechanics like the pinging system and midgame respawns coupled with fast-paced action has helped it gain a massive player base, topping 50 million players worldwide.

Respawn is working hard to add new content in the game and they pushed a new patch recently, adding new challenges and an elite que mode. While the patch brings much-needed content, it also introduces annoying bugs.

Known Bugs In Patch 1.2

  • Havoc and Devotion base ammo reduced. (Unintentional change)

  • Skydiving from a Jump Tower “nerf”.

  • Mirage clones sometimes appearing behind the player and die prematurely.

  • Ability to switch from localized voice-overs to English.

  • Deathbox loot ordering.

  • Can’t ping with the “Ninja” controller preset in inventory or deathboxes.

  • Legend models not showing up in banners at the end of match screen.

  • Not being able to change game configs.

  • Octane jump pad sound issue where players keep hearing the pad sound after the jump.

  • Script errors.

  • Issues with controller / key bindings.

  • Accuracy while sliding and ADS.

  • Server slow down / datacenter mismatching /general network performance.

  • Changing game configs. “The intent of the change was to remove the ability to modify the game to get a competitive advantage. We hear the feedback that some commands are now gone for players that used them to make their game more stable or performant. We’ll follow up more on this next week.

  • Caustic Gas damaging players through walls and being able to drop endless gas traps.

  • Texture not showing when looking down 2X site.

  • Players appearing invisible during a match.

  • Grappling as Pathfinder with no weapon out no longer draws a weapon after grappling.

Some of these bugs here are very serious. The Sound pad bug is game breaking for Octane players because it severely disables in-game hearing. There are no fixes for it and the only option left for players are to not use jump pads. Pathfinders Grappling bug can also put players in a disadvantageous position in a firefight. All these issues have been acknowledged by Respawn and they are working to fix these issues. We don’t have an ETA yet but we will keep you updated.
