Apex Legends Is Getting A Much-Needed Change To Death Box Looting
Fans of Respawn Entertainment’s free to play battle royale game Apex Legends have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of days. The title’s Halloween Fight or Fright event kicks off on October 15th, bringing with it a slew of new weapon cosmetics, legendary skins, and a brand new limited-time mode called Shadowfall that will take place on a nighttime variant of the Kings Canyon map. These aren’t the only goodies that will be coming soon, as Respawn Entertainment has recently revealed that a new quality of life tweak is coming that will make looting death boxes a bit less dangerous than before.
As reported by Comicbook, Respawn Entertainment keeps a public Trello open that details upcoming changes, current bug issues, things of that nature. The developer recently updated the Trello with a new quality of life feature that affects death box looting. Normally when a player dives into a death box, they are kicked out of it if they take any damage. This unfortunately has the side affect of disorienting the player due to the forced menu close, and oftentimes the player will waste valuable seconds trying to determine what to do next. The newly revealed quality of life feature – on the Trello card that can be seen right here – states that the developer plans on implementing a menu toggle that will let players stay in the death box menu even if they take damage.
The new setting is currently being worked on and there isn’t an ETA on when it’ll be pushed out in an update. That said, at least we know it’s on its way, and a good portion of the player base will likely take advantage of the feature once it goes live.
Apex Legends is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
