'Apex Legends' Update 1.46 Fixes Shields, Reconnect and Wraith - Patch Notes

Apex Legends update 1.46 just went live on Xbox One, PS4 and PC with a patch that's just a few megabytes in size. Thankfully, we already know precisely how the tiny download changes the game, thanks to a tweet from the official Apex Legends Twitter account. For those who can't see the embed, we've copied the patch notes below.

Apex Legends Update 1.46 Patch Notes

  • IImprovements to Reconnect
  • Wraith portals disappearing if place in certain areas
  • Knockdown shields not blocking shots
  • Beacons showing up in minimap but not in-world
  • Improved Ring logic
  • Several game logic errors

Predictably, with an update this small in size, the tweaks aren't exactly significant. Improvements to reconnect will certainly be appreciated, given the shoddy nature of servers during the coronavirus pandemic, and Wraith mains will be glad to see her portals working correctly at all times.

Beyond those minor fixes, however, there's not much left to discuss with regard to Apex update 1.46. The improvements to Ring logic certainly sound interesting, but unfortunately Respawn isn't going to go into too much detail on that subject, to preserve the competitive integrity of the game.

This bite-sized update is just one week removed from an interstitial patch in which Respawn partially reversed its Season 6 armor overhaul and removed a controversial Caustic voice line. Today's update is even smaller, and it addresses issues that aren't quite as pervasive among the community. That being said, it's a nice change of pace for Apex's developers to reveal the details about the download nonetheless.

In most cases where fixes are this minor, Respawn would generally forgo the patch note process altogether. With a highly competitive and popular game like this one, it helps to know every single change as it happens. Apex Legends update 1.46 won't revolutionize the battle royale experience as you know it, but it features a few quality-of-life adjustments that are sure to come through at the right moments. While larger patches are likely to release over the next few weeks, their contents are not yet known. Barring a few shortcomings, though, Apex Legends Season 6 has enjoyed a pretty stable launch thus far.

Apex Legends is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
