Respawn have revealed the details for the latest Apex Legends patch: Update 1.86. Here's what you need to know.
Hot on the heels of the latest Dark Depths event in Apex Legends, Respawn have deployed a small patch aiming to address some of the recent exploits that have been troubling players in-game. Recently, Respawn made the decision to temporarily remove both the Rampage and Sentinel from the game due to an exploit that allowed for continuous charging. This exploit made both weapons largely unstoppable, making from some pretty frustrating gameplay.
While initially Respawn didn't provide a timeline for when we might see the two weapons make a return, thanks to this latest patch it seems both are back and re-balanced.
Other fixes have been deployed for the MIL-SPEC Bangalore Skin. Previously, this new skin had the unfortunate effect of crashing the game outright for anyone who equipped the skin. Respawn, while still allowing players to purchase the skin, disabled it from being used in order to curb the crashes. Like the Rampage and Sentinel, a fix has been deployed to bring everything back to how it should be.
Below, we've listed the full notes for this most recent update.
