Apex Legends Season 7 Patch Notes
What EA is calling Apex’s biggest season yet. Season 7 brings a new Legend, map, and vehicle among many other smaller updates. We are going to do our best to give you a breakdown of the Apex Legends Season 7 patch notes that gives you only what you really want to know. We know you want to be playing so let’s get into it!
New Legend: Horizon
Horizon looks to be a super mobile and fun Legend to play. Not only does she have mobility herself but she also can help move her allies as well. Horizons ultimate will also provide cc either making your enemies an easy target or locking them in for you and your allies to run away and heal up. Overall I think Horizon will be very fun to play for aggressive players and should be expected in most comps.
Increase air control and reduce fall impacts with Horizon’s custom spacesuit.
Tactical: Gravity Lift
Reverse the flow of gravity, lifting players upward and boosting them outward when they exit.
Ultimate: Black hole
Deploy NEWT to create a micro black hole that sucks in nearby Legends.
New Map: Olympus
The new map Olympus is a city in the sky, once a place where the brightest minds in the Outlands could gather and exchange ideas. The map described to me in a quick interview I did with a fellow Apex player
“the meta shift is cool, the map is very spacious but doesn’t have as much cover as World’s Edge so fights are very make or break. That being said the mobility of the map, and new vehicles make for easy rotations so the action is never too far.”
The biggest change from World’s Edge is The Phase Runner – a tunnel of Phase energy running through the center of Olympus – lets you cross the map in seconds. The mobility added with The Phase Runner is great for the game. not only is it very helpful with map rotations but mobility often makes the game more fun. Being able to quickly get into another battle and rotate across the map is what gives Apex the feel people are looking for.
As well as the map they are also going to have an Olympus Preview that will allow players to get to know the map without being in a real game. The preview will only last for a single week.
New Vehicle: The Trident
Speaking on mobility, The Trident is a huge reason Olympus has such a feeling of high mobility. The Trident can carry your whole squad and can be driven in first or third person. While in first person you can still shoot as well. The Trident also will not blow up even after taking damage. With that being said the damage done to the Trident will be distributed out onto the people in the vehicle accordingly.
The Trident also interacts with Legend abilities apparently in many different ways. While I haven’t played enough to figure out all the different ways, we will do our best and have an article up within a short time!
Clubs are also being added. While maybe not the shiniest thing in the Apex Legends Season 7 Patch Notes, but a useful and welcomed one altogether. This will just be a good way to interact with friends. Clubs essentially are clans, this is still exciting though, and will be great for player interaction. Be sure to get out there and make a club for you and your friends.
Misc – (Legend, weapon, and bug fixes)
There were a number of fixes throughout the game. While I’m not going to go through every single update I’ll let you all go look for yourself here. The major ones I do want to bring up are Ring damage is getting reduced capping out at %15, not %25. Obviously, this will make rotating to the circle easier throughout the game and really rely on player kills to move things along.
Other than that the two other things I think are pretty notable are Loba’s Black Market is getting a slight change with ammo no longer count toward the maximum. This allows you to get all the ammo you could need which always feels nice. I for one am almost always low on ammo due to missing a lot so it means a great deal to me.
Finally, the last one is a change to Caustics traps. The damage ticks are going up from 4-10 to 6-12. That alone isn’t all too much but more damage is damage. The other side of the change is that legends no longer get a blurred vision effect while in the gas. Overall I think this is probably a nerf to Caustic, taking away the blurred vision almost takes away what the traps really do. Yes like I said damage is always nice but to me personally what I thought of when thinking of the traps was the utility and confusion they caused.
Apex Legends Season 7 Patch Notes
Overall the Apex Legends Season 7 Patch Notes made me think about this game again. I haven’t played all too consistently. The game does seem very fun but I think season 7 will really bring people back with excitement. I new map is always something to look forward to as it changes essentially everything about the game at least for some time.
A new Legend is also something everyone at least looks at. With Horizon I think we get something that everyone can enjoy. Her mobility and utility can be used both offensively and defensively catering to all people in some way. Horizon also fits very well with the new map Olympus by design. The map calls for mobility to be used efficiently and she works with that perfectly.
I for one will definitely be making a return to Apex to make a Club and explore the new map with all my friends. I hope this was helpful for anyone trying to get a quick rundown of the Apex Legends Season 7 Patch Notes.
