Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

Powerful Apex Legends glitch allows players to carry active Heat Shields on their head

Apex Legends players have noticed a new glitch in Season 14 which allows Heat Shields to be placed on character’s heads.

Published

on

A new powerful glitch has been found in Apex Legends after the Season 14 update which sticks Heat Shields on top of the character.

A new season of Apex Legends doesn’t just mean a new Legend, it also usually means new bugs and issues for the devs to fix.

While the Apex Legends Season 14 update launched smoothly, players have noticed some odd glitches and issues, such as characters having the wrong abilities and Wattson being unable to place her fences.

Now, players have found a bug in Season 14 which puts Heat Shields on the player’s head, which is actually very strong.

Reddit user JomzYT put a video up in the Apex Legends subreddit showing off this new Heat Shield glitch, along with the caption “Apparently you can now put heatshields on your head!”

In the video, the player goes to place a Heat Shield down when it miraculously lands on their head and stays with them while they move.

Heat Shields are extremely useful in Apex Legends, as they protect you from the ring and can often save you or your teammate’s life, giving you time to heal up before making your way back into the ring.

Usually, they are placed on the floor, and can not be moved. However, with this glitch, the player is free to move around and remain protected by the Heat Shield, which is stuck to their head.

The fact that the player can move around with the Heat Shield makes this bug very powerful, leaving some in the comments of the post jokingly saying that “it’s a feature,” and a “buff.”

According to one of the users in the comments, this bug is associated with Vantage and could be to do with her winged companion Echo: “This is a thing that happens with Vantage at times, I accidentally pinged myself and my own echo earlier today. Seems like Echo stays physical even when holstered, this leaves one question. Rampart turret on Echo?”

Perhaps the Heat Shield was attached to Echo, as the player had not called the bat out. This has players reminiscing about similar bugs with Crypto and his drone: “Oh gosh, I remember when we had that bug with Crypto. That was funny, flying around on your turret shooting at people.”

Although it doesn’t seem like a major issue, Respawn will likely get this patched up as soon as possible. For more on Apex Legends, check out what NICKMERCS had to say about the Valkyrie nerfs in Season 14.

Wattson’s fence unusable in Apex Legends despite Season 14 fixes

Players are having trouble with Wattson’s fences yet again in Apex Legends, despite the Legend receiving fixes in Season 14 update.

Published

Apex Legends players are frustrated with Wattson’s fences as they claim the ability is unusable in Season 14.

Apex Legends players are finally able to enjoy the brand new Season 14 update, as the season dropped on August 9. Players have been getting to grips with Vantage, the overhauled Kings Canyon map, and various buffs and nerfs in the patch notes.

While some in the community have been focused on the Valkyrie nerfs and Mad Maggie buffs, which could potentially see her rise in popularity, others are disappointed with Wattson.

The new update supposedly brought improvements to Wattson’s fence placement, but the community have been experiencing the opposite.

Reddit user oscarwildeaf has highlighted the issue with Wattson’s fences on the Apex Legends subreddit, posting a video of the problem while sarcastically saying “another great patch for Wattson.”

The patch notes claimed that the devs had made “improvements” to the placement of Wattson fences, as there have been many issues with the ability in the past.

In the video, the player attempts to place Wattson fences but is inconveniently unable to do so, despite the UI showing that it is possible.

This is obviously extremely frustrating for Wattson players in Apex Legends Season 14, as her electric fences are her main tool and this isn’t the first time there have been issues with it.

One user in the comments of the post even said “Wattsons been dealing with this for a while anytime they change fences or arcstars they break s***. You can expect a fix maybe in season 15, time to retire Wattson for 14.”

Clearly, this player feels that Wattson’s fence placement will be broken for some time, but hopefully Respawn prove them wrong and bring a permanent fix for the issue soon.

On the topic of bugs and issues, a new Apex Legends Season 14 glitch is causing characters to have the wrong abilities, making for some hilarious clips.

When is Apex Legends Season 15? Season 14 end date, leaked Legend, more

Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Season 15 including the expected start date, Legend, and map leaks.

Published

on

Apex Legends Season 14 arrived on August 9, bringing new Legend Vantage and significant Kings Canyon map changes. Season 15 is next up, so here’s everything we know including the expected start date, leaked Legend, and more.

Apex Legends is now in its fourteenth season since its February 2019 release, bringing new weapons, maps, and of course, Legends, throughout the seasons. Season 14 has brought Vantage to the Apex Games, as well as increasing the level cap and changing Battle Pass challenges.

Season 15 arrives later in 2022, so here’s when Season 14 is scheduled to end and usher in the new season, as well as the leaked Legend and map that could arrive.

Apex Legends Season 15 start date & Season 14 end date

While Respawn Entertainment haven’t revealed a release date for Apex Legends Season 15, Season 14 is set to wrap up on November 8, 2022.

Assuming there are no delays, we expect Season 15 to kick off right after Season 14 concludes, bringing a new Battle Pass, Legend, and perhaps even a new map.

New Legend leaked for Apex Legends Season 15

According to datamining from ‘SomeoneWhoLeaks,’ Catalyst is set to be Apex Legends Season 15’s Legend.

Catalyst’s leaked abilities have been known for a while now, where the Legend will be able to create cover and platforms with ferrofluid. SomeoneWhoLeaks said that the Season 14 update added “New lines of code for the next legend, Catalyst,” with the files including a “ferro_wall” ability.

Here are all of Catalyst’s leaked abilities:

  • Passive: Reinforce
    • Standing near your ferrofluid structures, doors, and other Legends placeables will strengthen their integrity and allow them to take significantly more damage.
  • Tactical: Ferro Shot
    • On impact, the shot creates a ramp of hardened ferrofluid that can be extended with more shots. Can also be used to create platforms on walls. (Max 3 structures)
  • Ultimate: Iron Tower
    • Ferrofluid rises up from below pushing you upwards while creating a tall solid column under you.

Of course, this is just a leak for now so Catalyst might be scheduled for a later season or scrapped altogether.

New map could arrive in Apex Legends Season 15

An upcoming Apex Legends map called “Divided Moon” leaked back in March, and if Respawn Entertainment stay consistent with how often they add a new map, it could arrive in Season 15.

Respawn tends to add a new Apex Legends map every four seasons, with Season 3 bringing World’s Edge, Season 7 bringing Olympus, and Season 11 bringing Storm Point. This means that Season 15 could be the next season to bring a new map, but there’s far from any guarantee.
