Apex Legends dev teases major surprises in Season 9

An Apex Legends developer has teased some exciting new content and made it clear that Season 9 will be something special.

With Apex Legends Season 7 underway, Respawn Game Director Chad Grenier talked about some of their plans for Season 8 and hinted at some major surprises for Season 9.

Apex Legends Season 7 has brought a ton of new content since it went live on November 4. This includes the extravagant map of Olympus, which has won over fans. However, there have also been problems such as game-breaking bugs that have plagued the community.

In spite of this, we’ve been hoping to find out what Respawn devs have planned, as they’re working on multiple seasons in advance. This means in addition to news about the upcoming Season 8, we’ll also hear updates about what they’re doing for other future updates.

Game Director Chad Grenier spoke with IGN about their progress on the upcoming season. During this interview, he made it clear that they also have something special planned for Season 9, and we should be excited.

“Amazing” Apex Legends Season 8

Grenier discussed the progress made on Season 8, and he was proud of the work that Respawn has put into it. Working from home hasn’t lessened the team’s resolve, as they strive to make the coming season into something amazing.

“I would love to just talk about all of it, because I’m so excited. Season 8 is shaping up to be amazing, it’s just great, and almost entirely done working from home.”

Major surprises in Apex Legends Season 9

The developer also talked about Season 9. He sounded particularly excited when discussing it, and teased some big surprises in the future.

“Season 9 is also going to be great, really looking forward to it. In Season 9, you’re going to see some major things that you did not expect. So it’s just a really exciting time right now.”

You can hear this from the man himself in the interview below.

Topic starts at 18:45

The surprises he hinted at could be many things. We might get more non-BR modes similar to the Winter Express LTM, as they’ve expressed interest in doing this before. There could also be other potential additions such as new PvE modes, Legends and abilities.

Another possibility is an expansion to Olympus or a brand new map altogether. The latter is far less probable since we only recently got this new map. Changing to a new area this quickly would not sit well with fans.

We will most likely see brand new vehicles, cosmetics, and structures as part of the update. However, When it comes to hearing about any new game modes, we’ll have to wait a while before that happens. The team is also working on Seasons 10 and 11 at the moment, so they have their work cut out for them.

Difficulties for Respawn Entertainment

Grenier also touched upon the difficulties faced by Respawn during this challenging year. They have managed to work on the game in spite of these obstacles and hinted at many great ideas that they plan to add.

“Despite all the working from home challenges, we’ve hit a stride, and we’ve figured a lot of the things out about how to work together and how to build great content. And there’s no shortage of great ideas in our studio.”

It seems the developers have a lot of exciting surprises planned for Apex Legends fans in the future. Hopefully, we’ll hear more details soon, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Octane in Apex Legends

A few Apex Legends fans stopped a match to play a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots. This led to some hilarious results, and the clip has gone viral in the Apex community.

Apex Legends is known for its massive maps which serve as large-scale playgrounds for you to explore. Through this, you can discover brand new combat strategies, hiding spots, and tricks to practice. Alternatively, you can just mess around.

Players have been discovering fun activities to pass the time in the Battle Royale ever since it first launched. We’ve seen various creative endeavors from fans, and now a new one has been found; playing volleyball with Cargo Bots.

Teams play Cargo Bot volleyball in Apex Legends

Reddit user BeanBag373 posted a fun clip to the Apex Legends subreddit, in which they enacted a brilliant plan with the help of a few other players.

They were able to get their hands on a grounded Cargo Bot and rolled it all the way up to a spot where they had set up a makeshift Volleyball court. This consisted of Octane’s jump pads, and they would use them with Pathfinder’s zipline. 

As time passed, even more players came across this and decided to join in on the fun. Rather than messing things up for everyone, they picked up on the rules and played the game. The clip gets even funnier as more people get involved.

Eventually, someone tried to ruin the fun by shooting up the players. However, they didn’t let this ruin their resolve and continued playing as the circle got even closer. They only stopped once the area became too small to stand in.

At that point, you can predict what happened next. Everybody started shooting at each other and using their Ultimate abilities, which led to mass chaos and mayhem. Sadly, this was inevitable as the shrinking circle incites conflict.

Despite that, this was still a hilarious moment of different players coming together to have dumb fun. This is why you should play Apex Legends creatively since you can discover other neat tricks when messing around.

Apex Legends Season 8 Trailer shows new Fuse legend and abilities

Apex Legends Season 8 shows us some new content coming to the game, including new legend Fuse and map changes.

Published

on

The newest Apex Legends Season 8 Trailer shows us some new content coming up for the game’s newest content season, titled “Mayhem”.

This season we will see the introduction of the new legend, Fuse, who has been teased for quite some time now. Alongside this new legend also comes huge map changes. Here’s the rundown.

New Legend – Fuse

Fuse is an explosives focused Legend, with a kit that seems to not disappoint. According to the trailer, Fuse is seen throwing his own unique grenades, which look very similar to a grenade model leaked earlier this month. If that same leak is true, then the grenades are called “Projectile Grenades” and his ultimate is called “Firebomb”.

As a character, Fuse seems to be a sarcastic and energetic Legend, so his personality will mesh right into the current Apex Legends cast.

King’s Canyon Changes

Map changes also appear to be on the horizon for Season 8. During the trailer, a large explosion sends a shockwave throughout King’s Canyon, causing havoc to the entire map, taking down landmasses and buildings.

We can expect the new update to bring a large map overhaul, consisting mostly of already existing, but destroyed areas. Hopefully, this update will also bring us new locations, or even secrets hidden beneath the map. This may also remove some bodies of water scattered across the map, so it’s sure to be an exciting change.

You can view the full season 8 trailer here.

Grenades trick in Apex Legends

You can dish out a ton of damage by throwing grenades in Apex Legends, but there’s a technique that you can use to catch your enemies completely by surprise, especially at long-range.

There is a wide variety of weapons and throwables available to you when playing Apex Legends. Each of them suits different combat situations, and grenades are perfect for dealing explosive damage to enemies from a distance.

If your throwing arm is strong, you can dish out a lot of pain to your foes. A well-thrown grenade is difficult to dodge due to its quick ignition time, and you can use a neat trick to achieve that from a distance.

This technique makes the grenade explode immediately upon landing which makes the blast unavoidable, and you can do this when throwing them at long-range.

Apex Legends grenade trick makes them unavoidable at long-range

Reddit user EddygCPA posted a thread to the Apex University subreddit, where they showed how you can throw grenades with such accuracy that they explode on landing. At the time of writing, this thread and has over 3500 upvotes.

This trick involves aiming directly upwards when throwing a grenade at long-range. You can then adjust the angle so that it lands on your opponents from above, and then immediately explodes.

You would not be able to achieve the same effect if you aimed directly at your enemies, since they would see it coming, and immediately try getting out of its way. Making use of the trick will grant you the element of surprise.

You can improve your chances of success when using this technique by putting in some time at the Firing Range to practice your grenade throwing. This trick is ideal for catching other players by surprise the next time you throw a grenade.

There are plenty of other tricks that you can discover, which is why you’re encouraged to play the battle royale as creatively as you can. Recently, some players found a technique to counter door-campers by experimenting with Horizon’s abilities.

With Apex Legends Season 8 set to launch on February 2, we will have even more opportunities to find new tricks in the game. Once we find some, we’ll be sure to update you.
