In order to understand what the Apex Legends Octane Stim bug is, we need to know what is supposed to happen when it’s used. Ordinarily when Octane’s tactical ability is in use, players are still able to fire their weapon at opponents, despite having a sizable speed boost for a limited amount of time.

Threads have popped up on the game’s Reddit page and official EA forums from people who are unable to run and gun while they play as the adrenaline junkie legend.

As of right now, no. The Apex Legends Octane Stim bug is still without an official fix, but this is likely down to the fact that Respawn simply haven’t had time to look for one yet.

The patch only went live on Friday, so the development team will have been on downtime over the weekend. It’s almost certain that the development and forum support teams will return to work on Monday, and see that there’s an issue here. That will likely mean that they’ll get to work on looking into it, and finding a solution, when the working week starts.
