As of earlier today on May 21, there's a brand new patch available for Apex Legends on all platforms. This new update fixes one issue that's been present since Season 5 launched earlier this month: the "no hit reg" bug.
"No hit reg," for those unfamiliar, is the shortened version of "no hit register," a bug where shots fired clearly impact another player, but don't actually register the hit, thus causing zero damage. This is a problem that's been plaguing Apex Legends somewhat since Season 5: Fortune's Favor launched earlier in May, with multiple popular threads on the Apex Legends subreddit dedicated to the issue.
But now this new patch has fixed that issue, something to which I can personally attest to, having already played and won a game of Apex Legends this morning where hits were noticeably more impactful (excuse the flex). Respawn producer Josh Medina gave a shout out on Twitter to the particular dev at Respawn who put in the work to fix the no hit reg bug.
In other Apex Legends-related news from the past week, Respawn has opened up a brand new studio to focus on their hit battle royale game. The new studio has opened up in Vancouver, around eight months ago at the time of announcement earlier this week, and it'll focus on supporting Apex Legends for the long road ahead. With the new studio seemingly taking the reins on Apex, what could Respawn's main studio in LA be up to?
