Apex Legends isn't the smoothest game to play when it comes to bugs, server issues, and Electronic Arts' Origin client. The battle royale title has run into a notable hit registration bug, where basically the bullets don't count when they land on your opposition. Considering this is a shooting title, this is a pretty crucial problem. The studio acknowledged its presence, and released an update on May 14 to supposedly fix it. However, it seems numerous people are still encountering the issue.
Apex Legends' Season 5 support Reddit thread gives an overview of the issues currently being worked on by the development team, and it includes the hit registration issue, alongside how severely it is affecting certain people's gameplay. A few days later, the hit registration bug persists, and the title's Twitter account had to admit the problem's existence once again. The studio promised to update the community as soon as they have any new information on a definite fix for it.
We are aware that players are still encountering issues with hits not registering in-game and are actively working on a solution. We will update you here as soon as we have more information on a fix and appreciate everyone's patience!— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) May 18, 2020
In other news, Respawn Entertainment recently celebrated its ten-year anniversary with a new Vancouver-based studio. The second location under the company's belt, in addition to the main California headquarters. Vancouver will be the new home for head of operations Henry Lee, team director Steven Ferreira, and Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier. Respawn COO Dusty Welch expressed the newly established studio's role in Apex Legends' development, and how they help out setting out the roadmap for the upcoming period. It is possible that it will aid in addressing reported issues as the aforementioned hit registration bug in a more timely fashion in the future.
This is a great opportunity, not just for the Vancouver studio to bring some new creative challenges to people already there, but also to the local industry in terms of being part of the Apex Legends roadmap. So we're very excited about bringing this to Vancouver and hopefully greater Canada as well, because we can tap into much more of a talent base broadly.
