Apex Legends Update 1.85

Today’s patch includes a variety of bug fixes, such as players being unable to ping in deathboxes and most importantly, a fix for a recent explot surrounding the Rampage LMG and Sentinel.

In the past few weeks, players had somehow found a way to charge up the Rampage LMG and Sentinel infinitely, making the weapons incredibly overpowered and unbalanced.

Plenty of other fixes and quality of life improvements are included in today’s update, with full details being in the patch notes further down this article. However, don’t expect any new content to arrive in today’s update, as it was just last week that the Raiders Collection Event kicked off in-game.

The event has only got less than a week remaining, as it is set to end on December 21st, so make sure you jump in and make the most of the Winter Express and all of the new pirate-themed skins up for grabs.
