Respawn Responds to 'Apex Legends' Caustic And Mirage Server Issues

Respawn Entertainment may have hit the ground running with their free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends, but there have been a few bumps along the road. One such issue involves players unlocking Caustic or Mirage, and then being unable to use them after doing so.

In a recent tweet from the game's Twitter account, Respawn let players know that they are looking into the matter. "We're aware of the reports of players unable to use Caustic or Mirage after unlocking on Xbox One and investigating," they said.

This came just after the developer had to disable the Valentine's Day skins due to reports of them causing crashes on Xbox One. "We discovered an unfortunate issue with the Through the Heart Valentines DMR skin, Gibraltar's Daemon Hunter and Neural Net skins that are causing crashes on Xbox One," Respawn said.

It is certainly not ideal to be experiencing issues while the game is still brand new, but Respawn is seemingly on top of things with Apex Legends. This is sure to help it along its current trajectory, which is on pace to take out Fortnite as the top battle royale game. We'll just have to wait and see how the developer handles these types of situations moving forward, and if they can keep players coming back for more.
