This past week, Olympus, one of the game’s current maps, received some fixes in a new update for Apex Legends. Players were happy to see the bright, smaller map return for however long that would last toward the end of March to change the map rotation for the remainder of the current season.
Still, some annoying problems like stuttering and other performance issues plagued the map and prevented people from thoroughly enjoying it. Many of those issues should now be resolved thanks to the latest version issued on Wednesday.
The update mentioned above was described on the Respawn Entertainment Twitter account in the same way that we typically hear about changes that aren’t significant enough to merit an entire blog post of patch notes but are nonetheless significant enough to take note of.
The enhancements for Olympus were at the top of the list. One of these is “A fix to improve freezing, stuttering, and low-res UI,” however, there is a risk that players will still run into some of these problems as they would with any map.
While a fourth change allowed you now to gift each other treasure boxes from the Collection Events, other fixes addressed server and Gun Run difficulties.

Olympus’s return was welcomed by many, and these adjustments will only make that better now that it should perform more effectively than before. Nevertheless, the update still represents a bizarre period of Apex’s general malfunction over the past few weeks.
Respawn made several perplexing modifications to the game around the same time that Olympus made a comeback, among them an apparent enlargement of the inventory UI that made it more significant than usual and so hid more of the screen.

Even more annoying than that was a patch that switched the buttons for attaching or detaching weapon attachments, causing some users to hurl their wings to the ground when they meant to attach them to another weapon.
Although both of these adjustments and others were undone, players were still mainly in the dark about the reasons for the initial implementation of these changes.
