After Apex Legends tweaked the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple as part of the Aftermarket Collection event update, players soon found that the character’s shoulder was getting “stuck” on the screen post-grapple, blocking a large section of the player’s field of view. Now, almost a week after the update that introduced the bug, Apex Legends has pushed a new patch to fix it.
We’ve pushed out a patch to address the following:
🔸Pathfinder’s shoulder staying in view after using grapple
🔸Crypto unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode
🔸Moved Performance Display so it doesn’t overlap with Kill/Assists HUD element in Ranked

Although the issue that made Pathfinder basically unplayable for some players is now fixed, fans still aren’t happy with Respawn. Replies to the original tweet chronicle ongoing issues with matchmaking spawned by the October update, which some have blamed on the introduction of cross-play between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin. The devs have also had to disable the Sentinel Sniper Rifle in order to work on an exploit introduced in the latest patch.
While Respawn appear to be hard at work fixing bugs that have arisen from the sweeping new changes introduced in the October patch, fans are also unhappy about intentional changes that have been made to fan-favorite character Wraith to try and bring down her pick-rate. The patch removed the character’s iconic Naruto run, as the hunched-over posture made it much more difficult to target a running Wraith. The change was implemented to try and balance Wraith’s abilities without nerfing any of her Legend abilities.
