Apex Legends Footstep Audio: Developers give Update on Big Issue before Season 7

Jump To

One of the issues most frustrating Apex legends players at the moment is an audio glitch.


The glitch means that at certain times, enemy footsteps don’t produce any audio.

Rightfully so, this has made many players angry and hesitant to play the game; what’s the point in a 7:1 surround sound headset if there’s nothing to hear?

Let’s take a look at what these developers said now!

The Update

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like we’ll have a fix very soon.

Director Chad Grenier went to Reddit to share his thoughts on the frustrating issue for players, and what they are doing in attempts to fix it.

AUDIO ISSUES: It's difficult to hear who's coming for you at the moment!

He stated that, “the team is searching for a solution” and that the audio bug is “a known issue”.


He also mentioned that when testing the latest update internally, the issue wasn’t noticed.

This means that the team now has to try and find the issue, and fix it, all on a live version of the game, causing as few issues as possible for the playerbase.

Busy Respawn

The team are already busy preparing for the launch of Season 7 on November 10, which is sure to add a host of exciting content to the game.

Additionally, they are currently working on a Nintendo Switch version of the game as well as cross-play.
