Respawn "discussing" issues with Apex Legends' "disproportionate hitboxes"

Respawn is "discussing" the "disproportionate" hitbox sizes of some Apex Legends' heroes.

Players are reporting that the hitbox for Pathfinder, in particular, seems to be much larger than it visually appears to be. While initially it was thought this was just an issue in the tutorial mode, it's now thought the issue may extend beyond it.

In the video below, Youtuber SookieSpy (cheers, PC Gamer), gives a brief overview of the issue.

"Can you address the disproportionate hitboxes between legends?" asked pwnij_xbox on Reddit. "The pathfinder hitbox seems much bigger than the actual model, as demonstrated in another thread on here."

"Sure! We are definitely aware of it and we were actually discussing it today," answered a Respawn community manager writing as Jayfresh_Respawn. "I can't say anything more for now but we hear you guys."
