New Legend: Octane

High-Speed Daredevil

If it doesn’t involve diving, leaping, plummeting, or racing, then Octane wants nothing to do with it. Always the life of the party, Octane truly believes winning the Championship isn’t enough… not if you didn’t cheat death at least twice to get there.

Passive: Swift Mend

  • While not taking damage, Octane restores 1 health every 2 seconds.

Tactical: Stim

  • Move 30% faster for 6 seconds. Costs health to use. While active, Octane is affected less by attacks that cause slowdown. 2-second recharge.

Ultimate: Launch Pad

  • Deployable jump pad that catapults players through the air. Takes 90 seconds to recharge.

Cost:

  • 12,000 Legend Tokens

  • 750 Apex Coins

STABILITY & PERFORMANCE

We’ve got some fixes in this patch that will improve stability on PC but we know there are still issues out there we need to address. We also added crash reporting so we can better understand how to tackle the issues we haven’t solved yet and address future ones.

  • Improved stability for various GPU configurations.

  • Capped PC FPS to 300 to balance improving stability but still letting you folks enjoy those sweet frames.

  • Addressed issue with PS4 crashes due to running out of memory.

  • Introducing better reporting when Apex crashes on PC without an error message.

    • We really want to fix any crashes people happen to get on PC. We also respect our player’s privacy. So, if the PC game crashes, it will write “apex_crash.txt” to your “Documents” folder. This tiny file is plain text, so you can easily see for yourself that it has no personal information. If you choose to share this file with us, it will tell us whether the crash was in Apex or in third-party software. If the crash was in Apex, our programmers can use the information to find and fix it. If you experience a crash, please include this file when you report.

      • We protect your personal information.

      • You can easily see everything in the file yourself; we have no secrets.

      • You’re in control of whether we ever see the file.

  • Added Report a Player feature for cheating and abuse on PC.

    • Players can now report cheaters they encounter in-game and it’ll be sent directly to Easy Anti-Cheat. You can do this from either the spectate view after dying or when looking at your team’s Banner Cards in the Squad tab.

    • We have lots of other work going on behind the scenes and this remains a high priority for us. We won’t be able to share many specifics of what we’re doing but we’ll strive to provide updates on progress for the things we can talk about.

    • As I’m finishing the notes this morning, 499,937 accounts and counting have been banned for cheating.

    • Speed hacking: We do currently have anti-speed hacking in Apex Legends, but it’s not being as effective as intended due to a bug that we believe we’ve identified and will be addressing in our next server update. Will provide ETA for it when I have it. Working to get it out ASAP.

  • Added Report a Player for abuse on Consoles

    • You can report players from the spectate view after dying or when looking at your team’s Banner Cards in the Squad tab.

  • Optimized skydiving to improve overall server performance.

  • Fixed bug where sometimes the client could crash when opening Apex Packs one right after the other.
