Apex Legends update version 1.31 released on PS4, PC and Xbox One. According to the official Apex Legends update 1.31 patch notes, the latest update added various tweaks, fixes, and the System Override Event. The event will run from March 3 to March 17. Apart from this, Apex Legends patch 1.31 also includes stability and performance improvements.
Previously, an update was released with Valentine’s Day Rendezvous event. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues while playing the game. Today’s Apex Legends version 1.31 update is expected to fix a few of these issues.
The System Override Event runs March 3rd to the 17th.
Designer note: The intent is for Bloodhound to use their tactical as they are approaching towns pre-combat versus reacting while in a fight.
We’re changing up the Heirloom system to make it easier for you to acquire the heirloom you want. Instead of an entire Heirloom set dropping at once, you’ll now receive Heirloom shards. You can then use those shards to pick the exact Heirloom set you’d like. The shards will have the same drop rate as the previous system, so that after 500 Apex Packs, you will have enough Heirloom Shards to obtain an Heirloom set from the Heirloom shop. And don’t worry, your existing progress towards the 500 Apex Packs will carry over with the switch. Remember that once a player owns all of the Heirloom sets, the player will not be eligible to receive more shards until more Heirloom Sets are added to the game.
Fixed bug for cases where Bangalore would appear invisible when equipped with certain skins. The Apex Overdrive and Killer B skins have been re-enabled now for affected players.
For cases where sometimes Revenant’s Ultimate Totem could be destroyed or disabled when placed too close to some geometry, it will now be refunded back to the player at full charge when this happens.
Fixed a bug for where sometimes players would enter a match with a different character than they selected and all loadouts being set back to default after the match. Cleaned up some areas around World’s Edge with bad collision or provided ways for players to exploit them.

Fixed bug for cases where full-auto mode would be disabled when players equipped the Anvil Receiver hop-up while in single-fire mode for R-301 or Flatline.
Apex Legends 1.31 fixed bug for cases where players were able to reroll Daily Challenges without being charged the Legends Tokens for reroll. Fix for cases where there could be a delay with firing the Havoc after cancelling a reload. Fixed a bug where players could place Gibraltar’s Dome Shield on Crypto’s Drone allowing the Dome to be mobile while in use.
Fixed a bug for cases where unlocking new badges would not trigger the red dot notification to make players aware a new badge is available. Fixed a bug where if players were respawned while spectating someone under Revenant’s death protection, they would return in that state permanently and unable to use heal items.
Apex Legends 1.31 fixed players getting assist credit by using abilities that place status effects (e.g. Crypto Drone, Revenant tactical etc) on enemies after they are knocked down. Fixes for cases where the Store would show placeholder images when content would be slow to load.
