Apex Legends Patch Stops Players Exploiting Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
The Apex Legends Legendary Hunt event is now well under way, and the influx of players has meant the discovery of a handful of bugs that Respawn has nerfed with the game's latest patch. Amongst these bugs was the ability to exploit Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps by repeatedly placing them down without a cooldown timer, as well as the ability to hurt players through walls with them. Both of these bugs are now fixed, and you can see what else Respawn fixed in the full patch notes below:

• EDIT: this patch also fixed the bug with healing items not functioning when using the keybinds for them.
• The following config commands are now enabled:
  • fps_max
  • mat_letterbox_aspect_goal
  • mat_letterbox_aspect_threshold
• Fixed issue with players not being rewarded with Loss Forgiveness after their teammate left during an Apex Elite match.
  • Also made improvements so that Loss Forgiveness works more consistently in other cases where it wasn’t working correctly.
• Fixed bug where Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps would damage players through walls.
• Fixed exploit where you could repeatedly place Caustic’s Nox Gas Traps with no cooldown.
• Fixed issue with “nerfed” skydiving from a Jump Tower.
• Resolved a number of localization issues for Xbox and PS4.
• Fixed issues with items sorting incorrectly when looting a deathbox.
• Fixed issues related to heavily decreased accuracy when ADS and sliding.
• Fixed audio bug related to Octane’s Jump Pad.
• Fixed a number of game logic script errors.
