Apex 1.09 Update Patch Notes, Read What’s New and Fixed

Apex Legends update 1.09 (1.1.3) is now available for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One players. According to the Apex 1.09 patch notes, the new update resolves issues related to audio, game crashing (Intel CPU), banner bug(PS4), stuttering/lag, and glitches. In addition, the new Apex patch 1.09 update also brings stability and performance improvements.

Previously, a major update was released with some new gameplay changes. Unfortunately, since the last patch, many players are experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Apex Legends 1.09 update is expected to fix all these issues. Check out more details below.

Apex 1.09 Patch Notes


Apex Legends update 1.09 fixed the audio issues where sounds dropping out, sounds missing for an extended time or distortion for a period of time. The new update made improvements both in our code and with our content that will hopefully fix these issues for many players, and for others, at least lower the amount and length of time they encounter audio issues.

Apex Legends update 1.09 also addressed some of the other mix issues with the game, including increasing the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps and lowering the overall volume of the game from the character select screen to the end of the drop sequence.


  • Improved audio engine to be around 30% more CPU efficient, lessening the chance of distortion or dropouts.

  • Lowered impact on data loading through code and content changes to improve potential dropout issues.


  • Apex 1.09 lowered the master volume of all sounds during the character select screen through the end of the drop sequence.

  • Lowered the volume of Wraith’s ambient kunai knife sound for those who are sensitive to the sound. If it is still bothersome we will remove it in a later patch.

  • Increased the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps for all Legends.

  • Apex 1.09 increased the priority of enemy footsteps to ensure the sounds play even in heavy combat situations.

  • Slightly lowered the volume of Pathfinder footstep sounds heard from the first person view.

  • Fixed missing or quiet dryfire (out of ammo trigger click sound) and low ammo (the progressive change in sound that the gun makes as the magazine approaches empty) sounds for the R301, Hemlok, Flatline and RE45.

  • Increased the volume of the music that plays when winning a match.

  • Apex update 1.09 added more detailed audio to the Training mission.

Bug Fixes in Apex update 1.09

  • Fixed occlusion bug for the “wind down” sound for the Havoc.

  • Fixed issue with automatic weapon fire sounds occasionally getting stuck on, usually after a Legend respawns.

  • Apex update 1.09 fixed bug with RE45 missing tail sounds (the echo in the environment after the shot) when in close proximity.


  • Added some fixes that should eliminate many cases of incorrect hit registration. This patch also includes some behind-the-scenes tracking of bullet damage logic. We expect there will still be some remaining hit registration problems, but with these fixes and diagnostic information, we are better equipped to track them down.


  • The issue has been resolved and we will be re-enabling the banner after the patch is live.

    • NOTE: We made changes to client and backend to address this and it’ll take a little time to take full effect. We’re expecting the error to resolve within a few hours after the patch is live.


  • Lowering the clock speed fixed the crashes, even if the CPU wasn’t overclocked or overheating.


  • Fixed issue with the Fortified Passive ability for Gibraltar and Caustic where they would take damage through shields.

  • Fixed the bug that allowed players to stick objects to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield.

    • Admittedly it’s been fun to see the results of this but the behavior is not intended by design and could get out of control. Items will no longer stick to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield, however, it will now deflect Arc Stars.

  • We have identified some issues with -novid, and will be disabling the flag until we can address the issues.  Thank you for your patience
