Apex Legends reloading issue for controller players Fixed
Respawn Entertainment has given Apex Legends controller players a massive Quality of Life update in the Season 14 patch that should make hectic scenarios much smoother.
There’s a big difference in playing some titles on a controller versus a mouse and keyboard. Aim assist and other dead-end talk aside, the sheer volume of features and buttons that MnK offers can make some operations easier to handle than a controller.
This is something that developers dealing with cross-platform titles have to figure out and are constantly trying to improve the experience for their players.
Well, in Apex Legends, controller players have complained about the need to use certain functions (like pressing a button to revive downed teammates) that inadvertently trigger different reactions (accidental reload).

Along with the new feature, the developers have also made huge strides in balancing their characters with a bevy of buffs and nerfs to Legends.
