Apex Legends Update 1.85 Patch Notes Fixes Rampage Exploit

Respawn Entertainment

Apex Legends Update 1.85 patch notes were released alongside the update Thursday, and it includes five fixes for the battle royale.

Chief among the fixes is another pass on both the Rampage and the Sentinel. These weapons are unique in Apex Legends in that they require spending a thermite grenade (the Rampage) or a Shield Cell (the Sentinel) to recharge. Respawn Entertainment recently fixed a glitch that would allow players to keep these weapons charged permanently, and now it's had to fix another exploit that let players recharge them without spending the requisite item.

Another fix in the update addresses a glitch that prevented some players on PlayStation, Xbox or Switch from pinging deathboxes and Loba's Black Market.

  • Controller players being unable to ping in deathboxes or Loba's Black Market
  • An exploit to retain cells/thermite used while charging the Rampage or Sentinel
  • An issue with the Wave Shift Wraith skin

These changes are live in Apex Legends now.
