Apex Legends Mid-Season Patch Notes

The Apex Legends Mid-Season Patch Notes are finally here with a few balance changes and quality-of-life updates

Apex’s collaboration event with Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is a new stepping stone for Apex. With that, the game is also bringing some balance updates in the wake of the new ranked split.  We will look into all the important changes the game is bringing forward going forward with the season.

Apex Legends Mid-Season Patch Notes:

The patch brought forward changes to both Legends and weapons, which we will look into. There are also some map changes that we will discuss.
