Apex update 1.69 patch notes are now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One players. According to the official Apex 1.69 patch notes, the latest update brings gameplay changes and fixes to the game. Apart from this, Apex version 1.69 also includes general gameplay optimizations.
Unfortunately, players are still facing several issues while playing the game online. Today’s Apex patch 1.69 will fix a few of these issues.
Restored slow effect when players run into Wattson’s fences Valkyrie changes:
Penalties for abandoning games have been added to Arenas. This is similar to the abandon penalty applied in Ranked BR games. You only get the penalty if you were in a full squad when you left (this doesn’t apply if you were partied with the leaver—you’ll still get penalized in that case). This update will activate a warming for players who are about to leave a game in-progress. The associated penalties will follow shortly after.
Adjusted the logic for loot items being spawned on the ground as opposed to being placed into loot bins. This should cause backpacks to spawn more evenly on the ground as opposed to being spawned almost exclusively in loot bins.
Slight increase in spawn rates for Level 2 Evo armor. The starter kit changes introduced in Season 9 had caused them to be lowered by more than expected.
Late Afternoon PT Playlist Update:
Re-enabling Valkyrie in the firing range
We’re temporarily increasing survival XP earned in Arenas. This is a placeholder fix to offset the fact that the buy phase currently isn’t being taken into account for “survival time.” In a future patch we’ll adjust the survival time calculation to include the buy phase and return the survival XP earn rate to its previous level.
