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.

Legends

Catalyst: 

  • Her spikes do not activate unless enemies are in the line of sight with the core of the trap. This will prevent her from damaging enemies through walls and doors.
  • The spikes will still slow down enemies if stepped on.

 

Horizon:

  • She has improved audio when she falls
  • Soft landing audio will play for everyone in the world
  • Gravity lift exit audio increased so that players can know when she is entering and exiting the lift
