Pathfinder using a zipline

Apex Legends players have been calling for some major buffs to Pathfinder in Season 12, and Respawn Entertainment have finally responded to these requests.

There are a total of 19 different characters to choose from in Apex Legends. All of these Legends have unique abilities that make them ideal choices for a variety of different combat situations.

Pathfinder has consistently been one of the top five picks in the game. Despite his popularity, players have been requesting that Respawn Entertainment provide him with a major buff in Season 12.

Now, one of the Apex Legends devs has responded to these requests.

Respawn will not change Pathfinder in Season 12

Apex Legends’ Lead Balance Director John Larson discussed Pathfinder in an interview with Dexerto’s Kijanna Henry. The dev went over why there hasn’t been any major update for the Legend.

After explaining how complicated it is to buff or nerf characters, he stated that Respawn believes Pathfinder currently doesn’t need any improvements. This can be attributed to the Legend’s high pick rate.

One popular player suggestion has been to increase Pathfinder’s utility while he uses a zipline, and Larson dismissed that idea: “Does he have less of an accuracy penalty on ziplines, or can he heal on ziplines? That would just straight up buff him.”

Larson also explained why Pathfinder’s abilities don’t need to match the strength of other characters: “It’s important to evaluate the kit as a whole. I don’t think there should be a world where every legend has an equally enticing passive, tactical, and ultimate.”

It seems that Respawn are currently satisfied with Pathfinder’s performance, so we won’t see the Legend go through any major changes anytime soon. However, that doesn’t mean he’ll stay the same forever.

Larson noted that the team is always open to making changes when needed. So, we might see Pathfinder get some upgrades when the game’s meta shifts in a future season. Only time will tell when this will happen exactly.

Apex Legends players are jealous of superior mobile features

The Apex Legends community is seemingly jealous about some of the “better” features seen in the mobile version of the battle royale.

Now that players have finally been able to get their hands on the mobile version of Apex Legends, console and PC players are jealous about some of its exclusive features.

Apex Legends Mobile has officially launched, introducing the increasingly popular battle royale to the massive mobile gaming community.

As well as an exclusive Legend, Fade, the Apex community is realizing that the mobile version has other great exclusive features as well.

Reddit user JustNatass put a post up on the Apex Legend subreddit highlighting one of Apex Legends Mobile’s features that is not seen in the PC and console versions of the game.

The user even states that it’s “one of the many examples of how mobile apex has better features then normal apex.”

On Apex Legends Mobile, all of the Legends are unlocked in the Firing Range, which is great as it allows players to try them all and figure out which ones they would like to unlock based on gameplay.

Although it seems small, it’s something that PC and console players have asked for “multiple times.” Further, in the comments, players are mentioning more mobile-exclusive features such as “unlimited ammo in the firing range,” which players have also asked for on PC and console.

Some players even like the perk system in Apex Legends Mobile that isn’t in the traditional version of the game: “I also like how you can unlock different perks.”

There are many other features that are exclusive to the mobile version of Apex Legends, including a Team Deathmatch mode and the ability to go third-person.

Of course, not all of the mobile features will work on the PC and console versions of Apex Legends, but small features like the one mentioned in the Reddit post could definitely be added.

Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.

But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players much prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?

Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.

Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.

They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.

When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?

While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”

They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.

Stay tuned, as when controller support arrives, we’ll be breaking down how to use it and the best controller settings to dominate Apex Legends Mobile.
