[Apex Legends] Additional string characters in events

Related Games
Apex Legends

Issue Description
Occasionally, additional string characters (and newline characters) are provided in killfeed, knockdown, kill events.

Expected Event 1

{"name":"knockdown","data":{"victimName":"Gentleman Bastard"}

Actual Event 1

{"name":"knockdown","data":{"victimName":"`1 Gentleman Bastard\n"}

Expected Event 2


Actual Event 2

{"name":"kill","data":{"victimName":"`1 jaythemxmx"}}

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce)

  1. Launch Apex Legends
  2. Select ANY game mode
  3. Start a match
  4. Watch killfeed, kill, knockdown, etc. events. Occasionally (not always), the irrelevant and incorrect characters appear.

Do you currently have a workaround?
Yes, manually stripping out the characters:




characters from all player names.

Please mention the time of the event so we can find it easily in the logs
