Body Shield missing from spectator hud

★★★ Apprentice

Product: Apex Legends
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number GTX 1070
Enter RAM memory size in GB 16GB
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? TheJumpingJawa
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? Pathfinder
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)?
Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Various
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Spectating after being eliminated
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? A dozen or so
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 24.04.2019 ~22:10
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
How severe is your issue? Little to no impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? The Body Shield in the HUD of 1 (or more) party members of the squad being spectated appears empty, as though they don't have a body shield. For a while I thought they were just playing 'hardcode mode', but then noticed one replenishing their shield with a cell; clearly contradicting the HUD's indication of no body shield
What should be happening instead? Body Shield HUD element should be accurate.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the game, die, spectate. I've seen it a number of times, it isn't that uncommon.

See attached screenshot;


- Spectating BckQ

- Frost_noo appears to have no body shield !?

- Frost_noo is using a shield cell !!


Later in the same game Frost_noo picked up a level 4 body shield, correcting the erroneous HUD.
