Evo Shields play a huge role in protecting you during an Apex Legends match, and one of the developers has hinted at some upcoming changes for them in a future update.
When you hop into a match of Apex Legends, your first priority will be getting your hands on some useful gear and weapons to improve your odds of winning. To survive, you should get yourself some Evo Shields.
This is a piece of armor that’s upgraded based on how much damage you dish out. After the Legacy update brought Starter Kits to the battle royale, one developer has hinted at further Evo Shield balance changes in the future, which has sparked plenty of interest in the community for the battle royale game over what these possible changes should be.
Respawn Entertainment tends to check with fans for feedback on any existing or announced changes. Now, one balance dev has asked the community if they feel Evo Shields need balance changes.
JayBiebs is Associate Live Balance Designer for Apex Legends. He brought up various potential issues, like too many red shields being available at endgame and whether or not Evo Shields feel balanced in Ranked play.
Alliance pro player John ‘Hakis’ Hakansson responded by stating that armor isn’t currently needed for any balancing changes, but Respawn should definitely focus on fixing backpacks.
Most users that responded to the developer’s tweet agreed that Evo Shields are currently well-balanced, but Respawn has hinted that some changes may still be arriving in a future update.
It remains to be seen if the developers will listen to the players’ feedback or will still go ahead with making balance changes to the armor.
We’ll keep checking for any further developments regarding this, so stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out our recent article on how to check the current server status in Apex Legends or how to get the Apex Legends Twitch drops for the ALGS Championship in 2021.

Apex Legends Mobile Beta Team Deathmatch mode might be coming to console & PC
Apex Legends new Team Deathmatch mode in the Mobile Beta could also be seen in the console and PC version according to leaks.
The latest updates to the Apex Legends Mobile Beta have brought a new 6v6 Team Deathmatch mode, which some players are suggesting will also release on PC and console in the future.
The extension to more regions also brought some new features for the game, such as an upgrade system for Legends and a new Team Deathmatch mode.
The new Team Deathmatch mode may be seen in the PC and Console versions of the game in the future according to code found by dataminers, which may not arrive in Season 10, but rather sometime down the line.
Although the console and PC versions of Apex Legends have suffered since the Evolution Collection Event, with a recent update supposedly fixing all the server issues, the game’s Mobile version is developing nicely.
As well as being able to play the standard battle royale mode and Arenas on Apex Legends mobile, players will now also be able to hop into a Team Deathmatch mode.
The mode features two teams of six, spawning into similar-sized maps as Arenas, with Artillery being the current map available to the mode.
If you’re lucky enough to be participating in the Mobile Beta, you will be able to play this exclusive mode. However, dataminers may have uncovered code that suggests its arrival on PC and console in the future.
Thordan Smash‘s YouTube video regarding Team Deathmatch coming to Apex Legends features Shrugtal, a popular dataminer who has found code suggesting there will indeed be a team-based game mode arriving in the future.
This team-based game mode could either be Team Deathmatch or what Shrugtal is calling “Control,” a point-based mode similar to that of Domination in Call of Duty.
Further, Thordan also featured an interview with someone he claims works for EA, where the employee confirms that there will be a variety of team-based modes coming to Apex Legends in the future: “there will be a bunch of other modes, like capture the flag…or the bomb one.”
These rumors and leaks seem more viable now that the mobile version of Apex Legends has a Team Deathmatch mode in its Closed Beta.
However, it could be a while until we see these modes on PC and console, and they may also be slightly different from the 6v6 Team Deathmatch on mobile.
That’s all for Apex Legends Mobile’s Team Deathmatch mode possibly coming to console and PC. For more, check out everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Halloween Event.

Apex Legends Mobile beta regions
The Apex Legends Mobile Beta is currently available in five regions for those who registered through the Google Play store to experience the battle royale on Android. Here are all the regions it is currently available in:
- the Philippines
There are currently only a few Legends available in the beta, with maybe more releasing when the game officially launches. The beta will also feature mobile-exclusive maps and even the new 3v3 Arenas mode.
It seems to have been a success, with the beta now coming on October 6 for Turkey and Egypt.
Be sure to register as soon as possible, as if you miss it or were too late and don’t receive an email from EA. Unfortunately, this is a Closed Beta, and you will not participate.
However, having said that, Apex Legends Mobile is set to be released by the end of this year, and the beta is becoming available in more regions as long as things go smoothly.

Apex Legends 1.81 patch notes: Server stability, Shiela & Rampart fixes, more
In response to all of the server issues in Apex Legends, the developers have released the September 22 update that should will resolve them.
Apex Legends has had severe server issues since the release of the Evolution Collection Event. Thankfully, the developers have shipped a patch to address these problems.
The server issues began for Apex Legends as soon as the Evolution Collection Event dropped in Season 10. The update caused players to crash and disconnect from lobbies, causing frustration for the community.
Despite some improvements with various hotfixes looking to address the issue, the servers were still dodgy.
Luckily, Respawn has shipped a new, more significant update that promises to fix all the issues players have been experiencing, which don’t just concern the servers.
Apex Legends has had a pretty rough time since the Evolution Collection Event dropped, with players crashing and disconnecting from games due to server instability.
Despite the update giving dataminers new code to dig through, allowing the community to glimpse future content such as Wattson’s Heirloom and the Loba Edition skin, players were pretty unhappy with the update.
The update also brought significant changes to Rampart, which the community welcomed and featured some pretty interesting bugs. Luckily, the new patch addresses all these issues and hopefully puts the game’s servers back on track.
Apex Legends September 22 update patch notes
“We’ve just shipped a client-side patch for @playapex, which fixes numerous bugs, including some that can cause crashes and disconnects. See the full list below. We’re also aware that there are still reports of slo-mo servers, and are looking into it!”
Some of the bugs fixed are associated with Rampart’s new changes following the Evolution Collection Event update.
The update saw Rampart’s minigun, Shiela, go mobile. However, this caused some issues with meleeing and exploits that allowed players to instantly reload Shiela without deploying it.
Respawn previously dropped an update to fix teleporting and game lag, but players were still reporting issues.
In the patch, Respawn claims to have fixed most issues with servers, including a problem with animated banner poses that were reportedly causing players to crash.
The players responded to the update stating that they were still experiencing issues, but Respawn quickly replied and pushed another change to fix “slow-mo servers and poor performance.”
As Respawn said, players will need to “give it a try” and see if the issues have been fixed. That’s all on the September 22 update. For more on Apex Legends, check out our article on who the most popular Legend is in Season 10.
