Apex Legends February 5 Update Fixes Exploits, Tweaks Map Rotations

Apex Legends February 5 Update

Heads up, legends! While Respawn Entertainment has just released the Apex Legends Season 8 update earlier this week, the studio has released the Apex Legends February 5 update which is a server-side hotfix that takes out exploits, and rejigs the map rotation. Check out the official list of changes below.

Apex Legends February 5 Update Patch Notes:

Here’s what Respawn Entertainment shared on Twitter:

Kings Canyon will now be the only map in rotation through Feb 9 instead of the previously stated 2-week window. Peep some additional fixes and or view the full Season 8 patch below.

  • Fixed an error stopping players in Belgium from purchasing the Battle Pass (Note: the button will still say “Unavailable”, but clicking it will let you purchase the Battle Pass. A client patch later will fix the button still saying “Unavailable”)
  • Fixed an edge case where the gas from Caustic’s ultimate would persist even after his squad was eliminated
  • Fixed an exploit letting players block damage from grenades by dropping items on top of them,
  • Fixed an issue that allowed Fuse’s tactical ability to do damage through shieleds
  • Reduced likelihood of late-game circles ending on Mirage Voyage and The Pitt in King’s Canyon.

Again, this is a server-side update, so players won’t need to download anything. Nintendo Switch owners, don’t forget, Apex is coming to Switch on March 9!
