The guys from Respawn Entertainment, the company responsible for developing Apex Legends, once again have some great plans regarding their battle royale game. Update 2.40 for Apex Legends came out on November 20, and first of all, those who were expecting to see new weapons, characters, or maps will be disappointed.
Update 2.40 for Apex Legends is only about fixes for the game, and Respawn says it crystal clear on its Twitter account:
Happy Monday, legends! We just pushed a @PlayApex update to resolve some issues, including fixes for:
📍 Bullet tracers should now originate from the proper location.
🎯 Shooting Revenant's Ultimate shield now gives the correct amount of Evo armor progress.

Apex Legends remains one of the most popular battle royale games out there, and one of the reasons for its popularity is that the game is compatible with numerous platforms, such as PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Android, iOS, and NVIDIA GeForce Now. Furthermore, let’s not forget that Apex Legends is also cross-platform when it comes to PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
