Apex Legends players have discovered a number of glitches in the free-to-play battle royale game since its February launch, including one bug that let Legends fly forever. One of the more persistent bugs is on the game's traveling Supply Ship that protects players with an invisible wall.
There is a spot on the back of the Supply Ship in Apex Legends where an invisible wall appears to protect players from incoming enemy attacks. The Supply Ship bug has been experienced by multiple Apex Legends players, and captured on video by Reddit user wlssilva. In the clip, wlssilva shoots at enemies multiple times with a shotgun, but they take zero damage from his assault.

Unfortunately, the Apex Legends Supply Ship bug is far from the only bug that's been discovered in the battle royale game. As previously mentioned, there was a bug that players could exploit to fly forever, and there's also been hit registration bugs as well. And to make matters worse, some of the game's post-launch updates have added even more bugs for developers to squash.
Apex Legends update 1.08 seemed to cause a number of issues, including audio problems, as well as PS4 system crashes. However, it's worth noting that Respawn has been quick to address these problems as they come up (except for the supply ship bug - which was first discovered months ago), and in an online multiplayer, live-service style game, bugs are to be expected.
While Respawn has been quick to fix these bugs, but some fans have grown impatient with the game nevertheless. There's a running joke that Apex Legends has slow updates, especially compared to its competition - a fact that prompted mocking even from fast food chain KFC. However, it doesn't seem as though the Apex Legends updates will suddenly become more frequent, as Respawn is looking to avoid crunch culture at its offices.
While Apex Legends updates may be slower than other live service games, that doesn't meant that they aren't in the works. In fact, Respawn is expected to pull the curtain back on Apex Legends season 2 at E3 2019 in June, so fans of the popular battle royale game should be sure to tune in to EA's EA Play streams starting June 7.
Apex Legends is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
