1/26 to 1/28 – DUMMIES BIG DAY

  • This game ain’t gonna test itself.

  • Fixes for various script and code errors that were causing crashes.

  • Fixed a bug where the out of bounds timer would not display when perching on top of some buildings in Capitol City.

  • Fix for cases we saw where players would receive a client error when fighting Wattson.

  • Fixed issue with Octane’s “Laughing Fool” skin blocking player vision when using the 1x Holo Sight.

  • Fixed issue where players could get into unintentional hiding spots in the Train tunnels and around multiple buildings on the map.

  • Fixed bug where the mini map was showing an incorrect view of the landscape east of the Sorting Factory and Capitol City.

  • Fixed bug where the trajectory line wouldn’t appear when trying to aim ordnance.

  • Fixes for cases where the final circle was ending in a bad location.

  • Fixed an issue with the Ghouls and Ghost Peacekeeper skin not displaying the correct animation in game.

  • Fixed the bug where a squadmate selects a character in Legend Select and the Legend is not displaying the skin that is currently equipped by the player.

  • Fixed a bug where if anyone picks up gold shields while inside of a Gibraltar dome shield they will receive 63% faster healing when it should stay at 50%

  • Fixed a couple bugs with Bloodhound Passive skill: players could not see timers when looking at enemy tracks [clues] and tracks would expire 30 seconds sooner than expected .

  • Fixed bug where Wraith could take damage from Thermite ordnance while using her Tactical or Ultimate abilities.

  • Fixed visual bug for when Crypto first drops into game, the Drone UI reports that it is “recharging” (as if it has been destroyed pre-drop), but progress does not complete / progress.

  • Fix for Wattson’s Ultimate to prevent being able to deploy an Interceptor Pylon through walls.



  • Passive: Gibraltar revives squadmates faster while inside the Dome Shield.


  • Removed the bonus move speed Into the Void and Dimensional Rift at the same time. Wraith will now move at their combined movement speed when they are both activated.

  • Increased cooldown for Into the Void: 25 seconds -> 35 seconds.


  • Drone and EMP improvements.

  • Surveillance Drone increased the health 1 -> 30.

  • EMP no longer affects friendly traps/deployables.

  • EMP no longer slows friendlies.

  • Extended Energy Mags removed

  • HAVOC mag size: 32

  • Devotion mag size: 44

Designer notes: We know that the removal of energy mags seems a bit odd, but it will make much more sense with the release of Season 4! It takes a while to make the bigger changes you see in the new season updates, and we generally make sure to filter out these changes from preceding mid-season updates. This time we made a mistake and shipped a change that wasn’t intended to go live until Season 4.


This feature is limited to approved partners and allows them to arrange private player matches, record live footage via game client spectators, and view match results. Our goal here is to provide great tools for tournament organizers for setting up teams and matches at events and a better spectating experience for fans.

  1. i’ve been playing wraith since the end of season 2 now you go and nerf her like this is a dying game just like pubg why nerf her a extra 10 seconds i could see 5 seconds but you had to go a extra 5 seconds that’s so in fair the only thing she had good about her was the void now she’s a useless character i think ima delete it now this was the only game keeping me going my hard days moving up ranked for nothing thanks respawn for ruining the game once again how pathetic

    Ridiculous, stop making good legends worse and make the trash ones better.

    Yall are bunch of cry babies get over it theyre doing a great job. Just cause you aint too good

    I don’t exactly understand the Wraith change… “She will now move at their combined speed when they are both activated” … wasn’t that always the case? Can someone please clarify?

    • Chad January 18, 2020 | Reply

      Beforehand, the speed was multiplied, but now it’s just added together. It just makes her move a little bit slower now, that’s all.

    Everyone that rides wraiths non existent nuts and had been maining her for over a year is TIGHTTT. I think changing up the meta is good for the game. Wish Bangalore got a little buff (even though she doesn’t need one lol) Id say crypto is most in need of buffs. Almost no one plays him now. I think blood hound could use a little buff too maybe.

    This sucks and all but it low key make sense , removing the extended mags probably getting a little too OP

    so gibraltar can now be lifeline and a tank with 305 hp with a white shield…. gibby is the new PK

    I think Respawn is doing a good job, it’s hard to manage a game like Apex. I understand they nerf Wraith and buff Gibby, they want to change the meta so people would play different legends. I know his passive is strong, and it will be changed but overall, updates like these make the game more interesting. Shall we see more Crypto? Will Wraith be dropped on LAN’s, we don’t know.

    I think Apex is fun (sometimes frustrating) and I think Respawn wants to make everyone enjoy the game.

    i don’t understand how these professional developers can’t listen to their community and see how Gibraltar is WAY TO OVERPOWERED…. why would you keep buffing a character that is already impossible to kill…. gunshield, fast revives, fast heals, most overpowered ultimate in the game. 1v1 a gibraltar and you lose every time… please just listen to your community respawn… we play the game everyday and sometimes we know what we need to make the game better…… and brink back kings canyon 🙂

      I agree wholeheartedly…………Especially the kings canyon part 🙂

    So now if a teammate quits you only get loss forgiveness at random. Great way to fix the dashboarding shit. Everyone is still quitting and now I have to suffer for it. Fantastic job guys.

    They want to make Gibby more playable and Wraith is still good considering her size and if you are good at the game

  12. TheRealSlimSly January 15, 2020 | Reply

    Coming in season 4: Gibraltar now spawns with gold armor and ultimate fully charged ???

  13. TiredOfSBMM January 15, 2020 | Reply

    Why make Wraith worse when you could just make other legends better? Also, why does Gibby keep getting these buffs when he’s already in meta? Apex is driving itself into the ground and many pro players are losing their drive to play the game

    You should buff wattson to beat up gibby

  15. Crizspy January 15, 2020 | Reply

    I think this is a great patch, hopefully this will bring a much needed change to the legend meta.

    Keep up the nice works guys. Loving the changes.

    305 health for Gibby isn’t enough? Respawn is so pathetic and clueless. Now wraith is trash now too. I’m done with apex bow

  18. Akasakii January 14, 2020 | Reply

    Wraith only had her bonus speed in the void away. Wraith has always been OP. This update did very well IMO. Haters gonna hate.

  19. Daenomuim January 14, 2020 | Reply

    Thanks Respawn for buffing my crypto and gibby

  20. Gibby who is already busted gets buffed and wraith takes fairly big nerf. Who do you guys have coming up with this nonsense.

    maybe they are releasing the volt

    It’s to bad that they nerfed wraith but why buff gibby again? And the energy mags didnt really change a thing for me the thing that gets me is the turbocharger on the devotion makes it overpowered

  24. TALEXYZ January 14, 2020 | Reply

    F4king dogs are buffing gibby every time…too op cunts…and nerfing Wraith for no reason…

    • Smoother January 14, 2020 | Reply

      Its a speed reduction and a ten second difference, i know its a lot but take a look at legends like mirage, its fair

    • Ajiva January 16, 2020 | Reply

      They are changing the meta. It keeps the game enjoyable, maybe not for Wraith mains right now but they choose to do that to let people change different legends. If Wraith becomes underpowered, she will get a buff, it’s that simple.

    why did you have to do that to my poor wraith?????????!!!!!!!
