Written by

Some players probably encounter this when playing Apex Legends, when you entered a match and pair with other players, there is some instance that the username of your squadmates is initially named “BobTheBuilder”, but after few moments it turns to their respective username. Well, this is not a hack or some sort, it just a simple glitch in the game that is something to do with pre-loading of game assets.
