Apex Legends’ upcoming Legacy replace is already shaping as much as be one among its greatest patches ever. Now that developer Respawn Leisure has launched the official notes it appears there are much more modifications than we thought. Together with the addition of the brand new Arenas mode and Valkyrie, the sport’s new Legend, the Legacy replace will even usher in dozens of big new steadiness modifications to Legends and weapons.

Among the many greatest modifications in Apex Legends: Legacy is the removing of Low Profile. This perk was once utilized to sure Legends who had smaller character fashions, like Lifeline, Wattson, and Wraith.

The perk induced these characters to take 5% further injury, and for leg pictures to do the identical injury as physique pictures, to assist mitigate the benefit of getting a smaller hitbox. Nevertheless, Respawn now feels that it might steadiness these characters inside their very own kits with out counting on Low Profile, so the perk has been faraway from the sport.

The brand new patch will even embody an replace to the Apex Legends loot pool, and the gadgets that gamers begin every recreation with. After the replace gamers will start every match with a “starter equipment,” which features a stage 1 EVO Protect, a helmet, a Knockdown Protect, two Protect Cells, and two syringes. Since everybody will get these to start out, stage 1 helmets and knockdown shields have now been faraway from the loot pool.

One other huge addition with this replace is the sport’s new Bocek weapon, a compound bow that matches into a brand new weapons class known as Marksman. That class consists of weapons just like the G7, 30-30, and Triple Take. The Bocek fires arrows which might be practically silent, providing you with the drop in your goal. The Bocek additionally has two Hop Up attachments: Shatter Caps, which splits every arrow right into a shotgun-like unfold, and Deadeye’s Tempo, which will increase the bow’s fireplace fee in case you launch the arrows on the good time.

Together with these large modifications, the patch additionally comprises dozens of small steadiness updates to each weapons and Legends, which you’ll be able to take a look at within the full patch notes.

The sport’s new patch shall be launched on Could 4, the identical day as the remainder of the Apex Legends: Legacy replace.

Replace (Could 4): Apex Legends: Legacy has been launched and all of those modifications ought to now be reside.


Apex Legends Legacy patch notes

Legend Updates

Low Profile Characters

  • Low profile now not exists! This trait has been faraway from Wraith, Lifeline, and Wattson.

Dev Word
After our profitable experiment with Wraith’s hitboxes, we at the moment are assured that we will clear up steadiness points between smaller and bigger Legends by means of modifications to their kits and hitboxes. It’s lastly time for Low Profile to go the best way of the dodo. (Sorry dodos.)

Lifeline

  • Fight Revive: Not deploys a protect. Can now revive two gamers on the similar time. Can now cancel lively revives in progress to permit your teammate to defend themselves with their knockdown protect.
  • D.O.C. Heal Drone: Heal fee elevated from 5hp per second to 8hp per second. Deployment time earlier than therapeutic begins diminished by roughly 33%.
  • Care Package deal: Cooldown diminished from 6 minutes to five minutes. Now ensures an improve (if potential) in three classes: Physique Protect, Different Tools (Helmet, Backpack, and Knockdown Protect), and Weapon Attachment, based mostly in your workforce’s present gear when the Package deal arrives.

Dev Word
Lifeline’s equipment was not in a very wholesome place. The Passive protect was extraordinarily robust to the purpose of frustration, whereas her Tactical and Final appeared like they had been turning into an increasing number of out of date. These modifications are aimed to redistribute this huge energy differential between all of her skills, making D.O.C. and Care Package deal extra highly effective and efficient, whereas tamping down on the extremely binary and situational Fight Revive.

Octane

  • Stim: Diminished cooldown between stims from 4s to 1s. Elevated well being value from 12hp to 20hp.
  • Elevated bullet unfold whereas within the air and taking pictures from the low Launch Pad trajectory.

Dev Word
Octane continues to carry out very well after the newest modifications. Too properly? We nonetheless love the frequency of the Bounce Pad, however we’d wish to make utilizing Stim one thing Octane thinks about doing on the proper time, as an alternative of all the time slamming it by default.

Loba

  • Burglar’s Finest Pal: Can now run and slide at full pace whereas aiming the bracelet and whereas the bracelet is within the air. Loba will now not be slowed after translocating.
    Mounted a number of bugs that induced bracelet tosses to fail.
  • Black Market Boutique: Elevated cooldown from 90s to 120s.

Horizon

  • Gravity Carry: Diminished elevate pace by 30%. Diminished side-to-side acceleration. Restricted the time you may sit on the high of Gravity Carry to 2 seconds. Elevated cooldown from 15s to 20s.
  • Horizon’s skills will now get zapped by Wattson pylons.

Dev Word
Horizon is highly effective and in style, however that’s not why we’re making these modifications. We imagine that errors in Apex Legends must be punishable, and when Horizon might simply get herself out of dangerous positioning whereas popping a complete battery, this simply wasn’t true. These modifications have two targets: 1) make it rather more potential for enemies to shoot Horizon as she sits in her gravity elevate and a pair of) make gravity elevate much less of an impromptu sniper tower.

Fuse

  • Knuckle Cluster: Fuse now has two stacks of Knuckle Cluster. Diminished cooldown from 25s to 20s.

Dev Word
Extra assistance is coming, however we need to be very cautious how we buff him in order that he doesn’t simply grow to be the Legend that kills you along with his skills.

Bangalore

  • Smoke Launcher: Thickened Bangalore’s smoke.

Dev Word
Final patch we optimized Bangalore’s smoke particles and inadvertently thinned them out. This goals to get her again to the unique visuals whereas holding the optimizations.

Bloodhound

  • Not receives assists from Eye of the Allfather.

Dev Word
Bloodhound’s scan is robust, however the aim of this variation particularly is to rethink assists and their implications for Ranked Factors. There’s sufficient intrinsic worth in sonar scans, and it’s a slippery slope to contemplate crediting assists for different non-damaging skills. Crypto will stay an exception. The lively nature of Crypto’s drone scan is notably completely different from the passive possibility with Bloodhound. This could encourage Bloodhound gamers to behave on the knowledge they get from the scan, to eradicate cases the place they may attempt to snag a fast help with out committing to a struggle in the identical approach Crypto has to.

Crypto

  • Crypto’s drone can now scan and open care packages.
  • Can now not use his drone to “hijack” a respawn beacon that’s already in use.

Weapons Updates

Provide Drop Rotation

This season, we’re taking the Peacekeeper out of the provision drop and placing the Triple Take as a substitute. After all, with any provide drop change, these weapons may have their stats up to date. See how every weapon modifications down under.

Crate Weapon Drop Charges:
Since we’re exchanging a shotgun with a marksman weapon, now was an excellent time to rebalance the drop charges of crate weapons. The Kraber will spawn much less usually within the early recreation and extra usually within the mid recreation to raised accommodate its energy. The Triple Take would be the most typical early recreation crate weapon, with the Prowler being essentially the most outstanding late recreation crate weapon.

Absolutely Kitted Rotation

  • Added: Wingman, Bocek, R99, Hemlock, and Sentinel
  • Eliminated: R301, 30-30 Repeater, Mozambique, Longbow DMR, and Spitfire

Hop Ups

  • Shatter Caps – Fireplace choose to toggle between normal mode and shatter mode. In shatter mode, rounds cut up right into a blast sample on firing. This hop up shall be equipable to the 30-30 Repeater and the Bocek.
  • Deadeye’s Tempo – Firing on the good second will increase fireplace fee. This may at present be connected to the Sentinel and the Bocek.
  • To make room, the Hammerpoint and Skullpiercer hop ups are being vaulted for now, and gained’t be obtainable.

Assault Rifles

  • Decreasing the headshot multiplier for all assault rifles from 2.Zero to 1.75

Dev Word
This was already the case for the Hemlok, so the affected weapons are the R301, Flatline, and Havoc.

Peacekeeper

  • It comes with the Precision Choke by default, which could be toggled off
  • Pellet injury diminished from 10 to 9
  • Rechamber time elevated from 0.9 seconds to 1.1 seconds
  • Reload occasions elevated (common from 2.45 to 2.5, empty from 3.35 to three.5)
  • Pellet unfold elevated generally, and unfold when charged elevated for all cost ranges (from 0.65/0.45/0.2 to 0.85/0.65/0.35)
  • Shortly loses cost after leaving ADS

Dev Word
For the reason that Peacekeeper is popping out of the crate, we’re bringing lots of the stats again in step with their earlier values. We’re additionally decreasing its injury potential and bringing within the efficient vary a bit for the reason that Precision Choke is all the time obtainable now.

Triple Take

  • As a crate weapon, it would include a 9 ammo clip and 63 reserve ammo
  • Fireplace fee elevated from 1.2 to 1.3
  • Time to full cost diminished from 1.1 seconds to 1 second
  • Retains cost briefly after leaving ADS
  • Transfer-speed whereas aiming down sights has been elevated to match different marksman weapons — sooner than snipers, slower than ARs
  • Elevated unfold whereas airborne and aiming down sights

Havoc

  • Elevated recoil controllability early within the sample

Dev Word
This could assist make up for the diminished headshot multiplier and make it a bit extra usable in mid-range fights.

Spitfire

  • Diminished recoil controllability early within the sample

Dev Word
The Spitfire is just too robust in the meanwhile, boasting good injury output with low recoil. Making it a bit more durable to manage early within the sample ought to give extra time for opponents to struggle towards it. That stated, we’re ready to make extra modifications to the Spitfire if it stays too highly effective.

30-30 Repeater

  • Elevated leg injury multiplier from 0.75 to 0.85
  • Transfer-speed whereas aiming down sights has been elevated to match different marksman weapons — sooner than snipers, slower than ARs

Dev Word
The 30-30 might use some love, so we’re citing the quantity of leg injury it does. This could make it a bit extra constant with out elevating its excessive “greatest case” injury potential.

G7 Scout

  • Transfer-speed whereas aiming down sights has been elevated to match different marksman weapons — sooner than snipers, slower than ARs
  • Elevated hipfire unfold measurement (diminished accuracy) to be extra in step with different marksman weapons

Dev Word
The 30-30 Repeater and the Bocek Compound Bow have extra correct hipfire than the baseline marksman weapon values, so the G7 Scout shall be much less correct in hipfire than these different weapons.

Longbow

  • Elevated headshot multiplier from 2.Zero to 2.15

Wingman

  • Elevated headshot multiplier from 2.Zero to 2.15

Dev Word
As we’ve performed earlier than when the Skullpiercer is out of the loot pool, we’re giving the Longbow and Wingman a compensatory buff.

Mozambique

  • Elevated journal capability from Four to six
  • Moved the decrease 2 pellets inward within the blast sample

Dev Word
This brings up the baseline energy stage so “solely” discovering a Mozambique early within the match provides you extra of a combating probability, and makes up for the removing of Hammerpoints.

P2020

  • Elevated bullet injury from 15 to 18
  • Lowered fireplace fee from 8.5 to six.25

Dev Word
Just like the Mozambique, we need to carry up the P2020’s baseline energy stage a bit. Most gamers couldn’t reap the benefits of the quick fireplace fee, so bringing that down whereas growing the injury ought to assist gamers win extra early fights with the P2020.

Arc Stars

  • Goal and motion gradual faraway from the preliminary stick.

Dev Word
Sticking somebody ought to really feel rewarding, contemplating it’s a uncommon prevalence that’s troublesome to drag off. Whereas an argument could be made that getting caught must be a private loss of life sentence, the shortcoming to no less than relocate and spare teammates from the follow-up explosion makes it exhausting to counter towards a coordinated workforce. This transformation ought to assist mitigate that with out stripping away the satisfaction of hitting a pleasant stick.

Starter Loot

  • Gamers will now begin a match with a “Starter Equipment” consisting of a Degree 1 EVO Protect, Helmet, and Knockdown Protect, plus two Protect Cells and Syringes every.
  • We’ve eliminated Degree 1 Helmets and Knockdown Shields from the loot pool.
  • Spawn possibilities for Degree 1 EVO Shields within the loot pool have been considerably diminished.
  • Together with the lowered or eliminated spawn possibilities for these things, we’ve rebalanced the loot pool such that higher-level variations of these things will seem practically the identical as they do now, however different merchandise varieties will seem extra usually (weapons, ordinance, well being, ammo, and many others.)

Dev notice
We’ve needed to take a crack at bettering the loot recreation for some time, with our design targets being to make choosing up loot really feel extra impactful to the sport, and to skinny out our loot a bit generally, since we’re all the time including new gadgets to the pool. The current Locked & Loaded takeover mode helped us field-test a number of the modifications we’re seeking to make shifting ahead: sure items of loot, and low-tier loot varieties particularly, are being placed on discover.
We’re eradicating Degree 1 Helmets and Knockdown Shields from the bottom loot as a result of these appeared just like the least thrilling, least significant gear pickups we had. Their energy is virtually invisible, in order that they don’t actually really feel like a personality enchancment in the best way that issues like, say, a Backpack feels (getting these additional slots feels SO chunky!).
We’re holding Degree 1 EVO Shields within the loot pool (albeit at a decrease spawn probability) along with including them to your starter equipment as a result of having them sprinkled round remains to be vital for “shield-swapping” shenanigans.
Lastly, granting these items of drugs from the beginning of the sport can also be meant to enhance the “sizzling drop” state of affairs: having extra well being, some headshot injury discount, and a bit of knockdown safety will help give gamers some extra time to react to a chaotic sizzling drop than earlier than.
Be looking out for extra loot modifications sooner or later! This shall be an ongoing undertaking.

High quality of Life

  • Badges at the moment are sorted by classes and could be filtered by “all” or “unlocked solely”. This suggestion got here straight from gamers. Thanks! It’s so significantly better!

  • Flight path changes: Eradicating edge dropship flight paths to forestall matches the place massive parts of the map obtain little to no visitors. These screenshots present a earlier than/after comparability of potential flight paths on Kings Canyon.

Ring Replace

We’re persevering with work from the Combat Night time replace to enhance match pacing in direction of the tip of the sport.
