In addition to its many new features, Apex Legends Season 9 brought adjustments to in-game loot that some players found objectionable. Now, a Respawn Entertainment developer has confirmed the studio will issue a fix for these problems.

Apex Legends streamer Daltoosh tweeted last week about the apparent lack of backpacks in the loot pool, and Respawn producer Josh Medina said at the time he would have the development team investigate. Now, Medina says the fix is just about ready to go live.

"Along with next week's patch we should resolve the issue around Loot items in BR especially backpacks lol," he tweeted Monday. "Lots of hot fixes coming your way in the next week."

A fix for a bug affecting Wattson's fences will also arrive in the next week, according to Respawn director of communications Ryan K. Rigney.

"That one sucks, we know," Rigney tweeted.

No specific date has yet been set for the patch.
