Apex Legends Season 3: latest update news, tips, patch notes and more

 

Apex Legends, developed by Respawn Entertainment, is a battle royal shooter that is squad-based and consists of teams of three players, which are up against 57 other players. The teams try to gather loot and you (or your team) has to be the last one standing. Compared to that of PUBG and Fortnite, players in Apex Legends take on one of each eight classes which is all represented by a unique character.

Effective October 1, the third season of Apex Legends, which is called Meltdown, has just started. This season has been said to bring a variety of changes, both of which are big and small. Ranging from new weapons to new characters to a new map, this season is expected to be enjoyed by both new and old players.

Updated News

Effective November 5, Duos Mode will be made available, including a new Firing Range. This has been an anticipated game mode that instead of the usual three-person squad, it allows players to collaborate with another player and go against other pairs. However, the downside to this is that it has its limits just like other Limited Time Modes. Duos will end on November 19th.

On the other hand, the new Firing Range of Apex Legends is here to stay. It's a feature that has been requested for the longest time by players and it's basically where you can work on your shooting skills. It's an amazing area for players who feel like they can practice without the aspect of pressured matches.

World's Edge

In Season 3, players are bidding goodbye to the King's Canyon and welcoming World's Edge as a brand new map. This map is the second to be launched in the game, however, you could find that it's an impactful and bright world that makes the perfect combination of fire and ice.

Battle Pass

Apex Legends isn't exactly a game known for having exemplary Battle Passes, however, the new season shows improvement on this in some ways. This Battle Pass is fresh that comes with this season and it brings 110 levels where you can accomplish weekly and daily challenges. It also comes with more than 100 exclusive items such as Gun Charms, Legendary Skins and the like.

New Weapons and Characters

For this season, Charge Rifle is the brand new weapon and it's making its first appearance along with Crypto, the new hacker. This Legend can be bought for 750 Apex coins and it's perfect for the players that want that long-distance battle since he makes use of his surveillance drone to keep himself engaged in the fight, yet stay out of the spotlight at the same time. It's also perfect for players who crave a refreshing variety of play.

Series 2

With this new season, Series 2 is launched October 1. The difference of Series 2 compared to that of Season 1 is in ranked players seeing their ranks undergoing a soft reset- all players would be dropping 1.5 Tiers. Instead of a hard reset of 0, this is being done to prevent any feeling of progression to the players who were invested in the previous Ranked League. Another new feature of Ranked League Series 2 is the Apex Predator Ladder Position. This enables ranked players to observe their worldwide standing, including their RP. The positions of the ladders are separated by platform so three players on different devices are capable of claiming a number 1 ranking. Cosmetic rewards have also been introduced, for rankings. All players now get badges that point out the highest level they've achieved while players that get to Gold Tier and higher get a gun charm. When players reach Diamond Tier or higher, they then get a custom dive trail.
