A new server patch has been released today, July 10, for Apex Legends Battle Royale.
The new update has been pushed on all platforms and looks to improve overall performance when it comes to live matches.
Patch notes released today by developers Respawn Entertainment confirm all the major changes worth knowing about.
One such change is being targeted at cheaters who have been avoiding getting caught.
This includes removing the indicator that you are being spectatored, making it easier to spot cheaters.
This is only a temporary change but will no doubt prove popular with Apex gamers.
“Yeah! Now I don’t have to be so anxious because I know someone is watching me and sees how bad I play,” one user writes.
Another adds: “I actually had somebody message me on PSN last night because after I killed them, I tried for a solid minute and a half trying to climb part of the ring wall around Skulltown.
“That section that has the skeleton on it right across from Market. My Bangalore teammate scrambled right on up, and I couldn’t for the life of me get my Octane up there.”
Other changes are aimed at making the game more stable and removing some of the instances where players are kicked from live matches.
