An update for Apex Legends was pushed out this morning, and here’s the patch notes.

Respawn Entertainment released a patch today for Apex Legends, and added Valentines Day cosmetic items to the store.

Along with the new items, the patch fixed and issue where extended timeout was causing players with slower hard drives to crash. The patch also fixed an exploit which allowed players to continue duplicating items in their inventory.

The team also fixed an issue which was causing folks who died on the supply ship to float in the air.

Looking over developer comments on the official reddit thread, Respawn is still looking into what’s causing crashes with no visible error message. The issue has been a bit hard to track down it seems, but the team is working on it.

Also addressed was a number of bugs with “geo-like holes” on the map and more.

You can look over the full patch notes for today’s Apex Legends update below. Be sure to check out our Apex Legends guide if you’re just getting started.
