An Apex Legends player using the Longbow DMR sniper rifle came across an infuriating bug that is currently plaguing the popular battle generous game.
While the Apex Legends community has loved Respawn Entertainment's battle royale, they have been pondering for crucial fixes for bugs that have been plaguing the game since its February 4 launch.
registrations that seem to be hit or miss, especially with Legends like Octane, Pathfinder and Wraith
Some players might start getting used to all the bugs, making this the safest distance to get a clean shot to connect.
That shot definitely hit the target
In a Reddit post, user 'Reizag' was scoping with their longbow aiming at far away Octane, but was greeted with one of the most stunning instances of hit hit registration to date.
After zeroing in on the Adrenaline Junkie, Reizag launched a couple of shots that hit square on the foe,
Reizag definitely showed they're no longer with the sniper, so they stayed locked up to the kill, but it didn't turn out that way. ] After landing the first two shots in a row, Reizag can be seen hitting their third as well. But even if the player saw a plume of blood coming from Octane after landing the third shot, there was no damage indicator to confirm the hit.
The player continued to shoot, missing the fourth shot but landing the one soon after. But again, Reizag sees a splatter of blood emanating from the Stimmed up Octane without a damage counter.
Season 1 of Apex Legends brought a ton of content, but not as many bug fixes as players would have hoped.
Why didn't the shots land?
There was confusion in the Reddit thread to which one of the many bugs were on display in the clip, as some thought it was another case of wonky hitboxes that had appeared throughout matches in King's Canyon
"This is a hit-reg issue (probably related to netcode / tick rate) , "Reddit user" Aetherimp "said. “Pathfinder is a hitbox issue. They have similar symptoms, but different causes. ”
Going by Reizag's previous hits dealing with damage to a piece with armor, if all the shots that were supposed to land actually did, Octane should have received about 220 of total damage.
Bugs in Apex Legends have been a player in players' sides since launch, and the community is hopefully the developers will issue permanent fixes soon.
