Apex Legends July 16 Client Update Patch Notes

apex legends patch notes july 16 client update

The July 16 update to Apex Legends is fairly small. It mainly addresses a few minor bugs, such as one that fixes text overflow on the stats page. However, it does include a couple of fixes for larger bugs or exploits.

Following this patch, players will no longer encounter the exploit that allows the HAVOC to fire in full-auto without charging. This patch also addresses a problem where Care Packages could become inaccessible after clipping through stages.

Some players may find that their Season 1 stats have been removed. Don’t worry, this situation should only be temporary. On the plus side, this update changes how players are assigned to data centers. Moving forward, they should find themselves placed more optimally.
