Apex Legends Update 1.89 Official Patch Notes (February 22)

Respawn officially released their notes for the update that hit today

Previously we were given developer intel for many fixes that were found for the game that should be in this update. However, Respawn only mentioned a few and was not very clear on some. *See bottom for official patch notes.

Here are the original problems that now have fixes (on their end) that were mentioned previously:

-Peacekeeper can shoot 2 times when kinetic feeder hop-up is attached
-Players do not get the leaver penalty when leaving control games early
-Control Mode: Friendly Caustic gas can prevent shields from recharging
-Audio SFX of items being dropped on snow can sometimes be heard from any distance
-Wraith ultimate disappearing when deployed close to Harvester wall
-Bugs related to Rampage charging VFX, UI inconsistencies
-UI Bug: Battle Royale Ranked info screen incorrectly details the bonus points awarded for placements

Dev Tracker Board

Here are the official notes from Respawn

-Bloodhound’s Prestige Skin challenges resetting
-Enabling the leaver penalty for Control
-Certain Bloodhound stat trackers not working
-The first of several updates to address the fps issue on consoles

Now I am very glad they decided to keep their promise of releasing a fix for the Bloodhound Prestige Skin resetting this week. But, a lot of the other issues that have a solution were not mentioned. Many players are unhappy with the audio issues and the caustic gas not allowing shield recharge. The other good official update was that control now has a leaving penalty so those very one sided matches should cease.

On to the FPS issue for consoles. It is my opinion that this a very hard issue for them to resolve and they don't want players to think they aren't giving effort. So whatever fix they were able to have at this moment they went ahead and implemented it. Even though this isn't the full fix at least they are helping as quick as they can. Usually they will wait until they have an entire solution before they release something. The fact that many of the other issues they have fully resolved were not in the update and these first fixes for FPS were, says a lot about their priorities on it. Keep your hope alive my PS4 brethren.

Stay frosty Legends
