Glad to see you still got the kill. The team is definitely looking into this as mentioned in today's 1.1.1. Patch notes.


At the start of Season 1, we previously talked about how our beloved Thicc Bois (Pathfinder, Gibraltar and Caustic) were getting crushed due to their hitbox size compared to other Legends. We first wanted to try adjusting hitboxes to better fit the model. For Pathfinder, this change worked very well. (Note: separately, we are actively investigating and working on fixing unrelated hit registration issues sometimes affecting all characters). However, after looking at the data and player feedback, Gibraltar and Caustic only improved slightly with the hitbox adjustments.


Hey that was a great reply. Good stuff. What now? Give them +XP to help level them up!
Did their response fix it? Mark it as a solution so it helps others!

Are you ever going to fix this issue or do you plan to update the game like you update your other games, when everybody else already is gone?


The pathfinder issue has been around since you launched the BP, about a month ago, did you do anything to combat the problem? Highly doubt it.

Not only the hitbox is messed up (why would you add a skin that changes the model that much, size-wise), but hit registration is surreal.

Considering how PUBG gets treated by their development team shows their passion for the game, i've been playing it for a while and tbh it's the go to BR for me. Apex was showing promise at the beginning but now it really shows its true colors.

Ever since the bp released people reported pathfinder hitreg issues, that was more than a month ago, is anyone working on a fix or do you plan on everyone to quit and there will be nothing more to fix?
