Audio Changes for Airborne Players Coming to Apex Legends
Respawn Entertainment plans to overhaul the sound for Apex Legends players flying through the air, per one developer
In a thread on the Apex Legends subreddit discussing Octane's jump pad ultimate, players complained that those who launched off that jump pad were able to move unfairly quickly and quietly. Lead game designer Daniel Z. Klein replied, saying Respawn had plans that would address the problem.
"We're working generally on having better 'player traveling through the air' sounds for all cases where you're in the air," he wrote. "Should fix it for jumppad too!"
Being able to hear flying players would be significant nerf to Octane's kit, but perhaps a merited one. Positioning in Apex Legends is vital to any team's success, and fast and stealthy repositioning is a powerful asset.
Klein did not provide an explicit description of the planned changes or a timeline for when they might be implemented in-game.
