Last Updated: November 17

Howdy, Hunters!

In the wake of the recent Apex Connect release (read more about that here), we want to provide you with an update on the latest known issues. The team is working as efficiently as possible to get them resolved, and we will provide another update as soon as we know more.

In the meantime, if you encounter any bugs or issues, please send a detailed email to our support team (preferably including screenshots and save game files): [email protected].

List Legend

  • [o] == Known bug
  • [?] == Reported bug (under investigation)
  • [] == Should be fixed in the next patch
  • [N] == Issues added since the last game update
  • [S] == Issues solved since the last game update (will be removed after the next update is patched in)

High Priority Issues

  • Weapon pack 1/2 and Parque Fernando seem to have become unavailable for XBOX players
  • Fast travel is broken for many outposts. Mainly on Yukon and Silver Ridge Peaks

Specific to APEX Connect

  • [N] Unable to use existing APEX Connect account created in other avalanche games.
    To get around this, you first need to go to your game settings, then the APEX settings, then “unlink” your account. After your account (it’s the Hunt Club account) is unlinked, you will need to wait 24 hours. Afterwards, you should be able to login to your APEX account the next time you launch the game.
  • [N] There is no “login” option to login to existing APEX Connect accounts, only a “create account” option.
    If you already have an account, you can try entering your login credentials on this page, and it should log you in even though it’s the “create account” option.
  • [N] Some users are unable to receive the confirmation e-mail. This is because their e-mail provider is blocking the correspondence. If this is happening to you, their are two options:
    1) As long as you can log into your account, you can simply wait until we fix this issue with our e-mail handler
    2) You can e-mail support from your already linked e-mail account and ask us to change your APEX Connect E-mail to a Gmail account (which you will need to provide).

Additional note: By design, you need to be logged in to your APEX account and online to use the ghillie suit rewards. They’re not available offline, or if you’re signed out.
