How to Fix Stuck on Patching Files in Apex Legends

To fix the Apex Legends Stuck on Patching Files error, there are several things you can try. Before we do that, though, we have to mention that the cause of this problem are usually the servers. Maybe they’re overloaded, maybe there’s some other kind of problem, who knows. Either way, if the problem is due to the servers, then there’s nothing you can do. Your only recourse is to check the Apex Legends Twitter or something like that to see whether the servers are actually down, then wait for the developers to fix whatever is going on.

If it’s not the servers, then it’s up to you to try and get rid of the problem. First off, make sure that you have the latest version of Apex Legends downloaded, and that you have enough space on your hard drive to install it. Also, check whether you have the latest graphics drivers installed, too. Another potential fix for the Apex Legends Stuck on Patching Files error is to reset your internet connection, and maybe switch to the Ethernet cable if possible. Also, restarting the game after resetting your internet can help, too.

If none of those work, then you might have to restart the launcher. And if that fails, too, then you might have to do a fresh reinstall of both the game and the launcher. Those are pretty much all the fixes that we’re aware of. If you know of any others that have worked for you, feel free to share it with us and the rest of the fans in the comments below.
