Crashes and glitches are nothing new to the video game community, but that does not mean the inconvenience it can cause should be the norm. For players who enjoy Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends, the last thing you would expect to crash your game is a skin, which is what is happening with a new skin for Bangalore.
Adding new skins for characters is great, especially when it comes with its own special introductory animation. However, players have been unable to enjoy the hard work of the developers, nor even the game itself, with the addition.
Videos have surfaced online and via Reddit, showing players getting an error message while being booted from the lobby or a more serious system crash after selecting the Mil-Spec skin for Bangalore in Apex Legends. The likely cause of this problem appears to be that intro animation, with the problem occurring every time it tries to play.
You can still use the skin, but it will require you to load up the game following a crash, which is less than ideal. For now, Respawn is aware of the issue and is actively working on a fix. The Bangalore skin remains up for sale in Apex Legends, however, but a warning screen informing players of the issue does appear everytime you boot up the game.
If you are looking to enjoy the game and Bangalore is your go-to character, your best bet is to enjoy the other skins the game has to offer for now until the fix is in place.
