Apex Legends has grown into quite the BR experience ever since its release earlier this year. Like any BR shooter, the game has had its fair share of bugs and performance issues, however, over the past couple months, most of the performance issues have been eradicated through multiple updates. However, this is not to say that the game is completely problem free as evident by the constant activity on EA technical forums. Today, I will talk about Apex Legends apex_crash.txt and how it can help you and the devs to solve several issues.

In a previous update, the devs implemented a new bug reporting system whereby you can upload a .txt file, created when a crash occurs, to the ea technical forums and the devs will then assess whether the problem arises from the game itself or some third party app.
