There are a few methods that players can use, but nothing as drastic as completely uninstalling and reinstalling the game. Uninstalling and reinstalling should be the last resort in case any of the following methods do not work.

Restart PC and Internet

  • Start by visiting Task Manager
  • Select Steam and Origin, and End Task for both
  • Check residual background processes for Steam and Origin, and close them as well
  • Switch off your WIFI or take out the Ethernet plug manually
  • Shut down your PC, and manually start it without the Internet
  • Once the PC is switched on, start by adding the WIFI or plug in the Ethernet cable
  • Start Steam and Origin and click on Apex Legends
  • If the issue persists then you will need to verify game files integrity

Verify Game Files

  • Open Steam and select Apex Legends
  • Right-click on the game, scroll down to Properties, and select Local Files
  • Select Verify integrity of game files
  • This process takes a while, and we recommend not closing it midway
  • If the game files integrity verification fails, then it's best to uninstall and reinstall
  • Restart your PC once the verification is complete
  • Visit Steam and click on Apex Legends to see if its running smoothly
