An Apex Legends Bloodhound Prestige Skin bug can reset the damage counter, preventing players from evolving it to the next cosmetic tier.

Earlier this week, the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event began. One of the new additions in this event is Prestige Skins -- cosmetics that can evolve into new forms after players complete certain challenges. The first of these skins is for Bloodhound, one of the game's O.G. Legends -- but unfortunately, it has a bug that can make unlocking those new looks a challenge.

What is the Apex Legends Bloodhound Prestige Skin Bug?

The Apex Legends Bloodhound Prestige Skin bug can reset your progress on the damage counter, preventing you from reaching the necessary milestone to unlock the next tier of the skin.

Prestige Skins are a new form of cosmetic that was introduced for the third anniversary of Apex Legends. Unlike regular cosmetics, Prestige Skins come with an associated challenge to unlock a new, more complex design. Bloodhound's skin has three designs in total; unlocking the second requires players to do 30,000 damage as Bloodhound and unlocking the third and final form (along with a unique finishing move) requires an additional 100,000 damage.

Doing 100,000 damage is no easy feat for any character, so the Apex Legends Bloodhound Prestige Skin bug resetting progress is a serious problem for people who want to use this new skin to its full potential. Fortunately, Respawn Entertainment is working on a fix and a "make-good" for players who have lost progress.

"We are aware of a bug with the Bloodhound Prestige Skin where the damage counter resets in some cases," read a tweet from Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment. "There is a fix in progress, and we plan to deploy it early next week. In the meantime, we are working on a make-good for lost progress[--]stay tuned for more details."

Apex Legends has had its fair share of bugs over the years, including problems with unusable Hop-Ups, broken banner poses causing crashes, and accidentally awarding items to players that they weren't supposed to get.


For now, the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event will continue in earnest -- you can join in on the fun by playing Apex Legends for free on PC and consoles via its official website.
