Apex Legends devs address Season 9 loot issues
While Apex Legends Season 9 brought a ton of new content to the battle royale, it also faced major server outages and various problems with in-game loot that Respawn Entertainment is investigating.
The Apex Legends Legacy update added a huge amount of new content being to the game. The update brought a brand-new battle pass, a new Legend named Valkyrie, 3v3 mode Arena, and a host of patch notes.
However, it also brought a host of server issues that kept players from logging into the battle royale. Now, there are other problems with the in-game loot, and Respawn Entertainment is looking into it.
Popular streamer Daltoosh discussed the Legacy update on Twitter and pointed out a notable decrease in the number of in-game backpacks and rare armors. Many of the commenters claimed to have noticed the same thing.

This led to a response from Apex Legends’ Producer, Josh Medina, who reassured fans that he’d have “folks check out the loot.” Respawn made very various changes to the loot pool due to the new starter kits.
The new kits will spawn you in with a level 1 shield, knockdown shield, and helmet, along with two syringes and two shield cells. The level 1 armor has been made much rarer, while level 1 helmets and knockdown shields have been removed.
It’s possible that this may have caused some unintentional changes to the in-game backpacks and the frequency of higher shield levels as well.
Unfortunately, players of the battle royale will have to put up with this problem in Apex Legends Season 9 until a fix is found. That said, it’s at least encouraging to hear that the developers are aware of it and are working on a solution.
