New Apex Legends Update Punishes Twitch Prime Loot Exploiters On PC
Last week, Twitch announced that it would be giving away some special loot to Apex Legends players as part of its Amazon/Twitch Prime promotional rewards program. Said goodies were a set of five Apex Packs (loot boxes) as well as the Legendary Omega Point Pathfinder Skin. Unfortunately, it appears that some PC players discovered an exploit that gave them the loot for free.
The new comes by way of the Apex Legends Twitter account, with developer Respawn Entertainment revealing that they were aware of the issue, and that a “small patch” had been pushed out for PC that included a fix for the exploit. Not one to let bygones by bygones, the update from Respawn also targets players that obtained the Pathfinder skin using the exploit and removes it from those accounts. The tweet can be found below:
We’ve pushed a small patch today for PC with a fix for the Twitch Prime Loot exploit on PC. With this update, the Omega Point Pathfinder skin will be removed from any accounts that obtained it using the exploit.

Per the developer, the patch is now available for download on PC, and any player that obtained the Pathfinder skin using the exploit should no longer see it in their list of Pathfinder skins. Said players are welcome to appeal to Respawn, though chances are they’ll simply say that they’re sitting back and enjoying the memes.
Apex Legends is now available free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
