Apex Legends Update March 22

It looks like there weren’t a lot of changes in the latest update to Apex Legends, but Respawn have taken to Twitter to announce the new update does fix a bug that was occurring with the blue Wattson Electric skin. It appears that the texture glitch has now been fixed and refunds have been issued by Respawn.

It looks like this wasn’t the only change in today’s (March 22) update, according to @TitanfallBlog on Twitter, You can now turn off the survival slot in order to get the inspect button back. Although this wasn’t a glitch, it was an annoying feature that players have been complaining about. It looks like Respawn listened to the feedback and implemented a fix.
