Apex Legends Free Battle Pass Bug and Players Not Receiving Apex Coins

New updates are added at the bottom of this story…….

The original story (published April 01, 2022) follows:

Respawn Entertainment released Apex Legends as a battle royale FPS with a Hero-Shooter twist. The game has been available since 2019 on multiple consoles and platforms.

The popularity of Apex Legends has recently increased thanks to its new next-gen update with better graphics and performance. Moreover, it will now be available on mobile devices (Android and iOS).

However, the game is currently experiencing issues with the latest battle pass progression and purchased Apex Coins.

Specifically, Apex Legends is experiencing issues where many players are randomly receiving free battle pass tiers after the v12.1 update. Meanwhile, others are not receiving the Apex Coins they purchased with real money.

Some Apex Legends Players Not Receiving Purchased Apex Coins

Many Apex Legends players are experiencing an issue where they are not receiving their corresponding Apex Coins (the in-game currency) after purchasing packs with real money (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ten, 11).


Missing Apex Parts

I’ve noticed a lot of people with this problem recently, but I was wondering if anyone had found a clear solution on what to do. I bought almost $120 worth of Apex Coins and never received them. I waited the 24 hours and have passed it now, restarted my Xbox, restarted my game several times, even uninstalled and reinstalled. But nothing seemed to work.

Apparently this happened to players who made the purchase at a time when the Apex Legends servers were having issues (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

you bought apex coins during the worst possible time the servers are down rn

The EA team is aware of the issue and is investigating, but there is no information on an ETA for a fix yet.


Free Battle Pass Tiers bug after v12.1

According to multiple reports, some players are also randomly getting many levels unlocked from the latest Apex Legends battle pass after the v12.1 update (1, 2, 3, 4).


I just suddenly received seventeen levels of battle pass. How do I contact support?

I just logged in for the first time after installing the update and it said I got 200 premium currency and then 100 twice. I went from BP LV 80 to 97 and I want to have that removed because I don’t know how it happened, other than that I’m still on the same level. I don’t spend coins or opening packs, but I don’t know how it turned out.

Anyone else get 20 random levels in their battle pass with the update?

Pretty much what the title says, I loaded up the new collection event and last night I was level 52 on the Battle Pass, and now I’m 72? Did something happen where they gave levels, or did my game crash?

The EA team is already aware of this issue and is working on a fix. Meanwhile, the latest Apex Legends battle pass has been disabled.


We’ll update this story once new details related to the case emerge.
