An Apex Legends player ran into a seemingly long forgotten revive bug as the prompt didn’t pop up for the player to revive their downed teammate.
The revive bug has seemed to make a reappearance in Season 5 of Apex Legends as players have once again ran into and encountered the bug. First appearing in Season 2, Respawn Entertainment patched the issue and thought it was fixed but roughly a year later, it seems otherwise.
Apex Legends Teammate Revive Bug Reappears in Season 5
Redditor u/RhydonHerSlowbro ran into the teammate revive bug that was supposedly meant to be fixed since Season 2. The player and their team ran into another squad whilst looting near cliffs.
The player managed to knock down a player but their teammate was knocked down during the scuffle. As the player managed to create some space and time due to knocking down opponents, the player ran back to go revive their teammate. When the player approached the revive icon to show where their teammate is, the player was surprised.
Despite the player’s teammate need to be revived, no button prompt or text appears on the screen even when the player stood right next to their teammate. The player continuously looked at their downed teammate, even trying to back up then re-approach in an attempt to have the prompt appear. Unable to revive their teammate, the player tries to run away from the fight but was unsuccessful and was eliminated.
The player wrote in their Reddit post that they are sorry to their teammate as they seriously couldn’t revive and was not trying to be a toxic player. Hopefully, this bug doesn’t affect many players and this was a once in a while issue or even better, the last occurrence.
Respawn Entertainment has yet to comment on the reappearance of the revive bug.
