How to fix Audio Engine Error in Apex Legends
This issue usually occurs due to the corruption of the game files after the new update to Apex Legends. Follow these steps to resolve:
- Go to the game directory (Steam: Library > Right-click Apex Legends > Manage > Browse local files)
- Find the file in question (Example: audio\ship\general_english.mstr)
