Apex Legends Devs Respond to Broken Hit Box Complaints
Ever since its launch just a few weeks ago, free-to-play title Apex Legends has been praised as being one of the best battle royale games in an already crowded genre, bringing to the table slick, super smooth gameplay and a satisfying choice of weaponry. Unfortunately, not everything is sunshine and rainbows in Kings Canyon, as there are reportedly some hit-box discrepancies between some of the playable characters.
Redditor Wpns_Grade recently posted a video showing a player in the training area of the game, which is lorded over by characters Bloodhound and Pathfinder. The player spends half the video shooting around the hit-box of Bloodhound and then switching over to Pathfinder, determining that it is much easier to hit the latter character, whose size is already a hindrance compared to the smaller, more lithe tracker. Check out the video below to see for yourself (if the embed doesn’t work, just give it a click):
While the above video makes Bloodhound mains like myself pretty happy, it certainly isn’t fair to those that play other characters. Thankfully, the folks over at Respawn are working on it. Community Manager Jay Frechette has confirmed that the team is aware of the hit-box discrepancies, and the team is currently “discussing” the problem and potential ways to fix it. Hearing that the developer is working on a fix is certainly a nice change compared to, say, the feedback on the Mozambique Shotgun, which elicited a response from Respawn stating that they aren’t doing anything at all, and will instead “keep enjoying the memes.” Well played Respawn, well played.
Apex Legends is now available free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
