Apex Legends Genesis update weapon buffs nerfs

We’ve compiled all of the upcoming weapon buffs and nerfs for the Apex Legends Genesis Collection Event update, which is set to drop on June 29.

Apex Legends announced their next big update last week, showing off the upcoming content in the Genesis Collection Event with a gameplay trailer. Fans also received a lore-heavy Pathfinder animation, which gave player’s an insight into his and other character’s backgrounds.

Along with all this, we also got to see the patch notes early, which detailed all of the upcoming changes, including Legend changes and weapon buffs and nerfs.

Apex Legends Genesis update: weapon buffs & nerfs

Here are all the official upcoming weapon buffs and nerfs for the Genesis event patch:

P2020

  • Increased Fire Rate from 6.25 -> 7.0 
  • Increased Base Ammo from 12 -> 14
  • Increased Lvl 1 Mag from 14 -> 16
  • Increased Lvl 2 Mag from 16 -> 18
  • Increased Lvl 3 and Lvl 4 Mag from 18 -> 21

Spitfire

  • Increased Hip Fire spread

Dev Note: The Spitfire has continued to over perform so we’re hitting it’s close range hip fire accuracy which should help bring it in line.

30-30 Repeater

  • Slightly increased projectile speed
  • Reduced charge time from 0.5s -> 0.35s

Longbow 

  • Damage increased from 55 -> 60

The biggest changes to note here are the Longbow, which will now be hitting just as hard as the Bocek Bow, becoming a solid pick for snipers from now on. Further, the 30-30 Repeater will also be getting a buff, potentially placing it above the G7, especially as the G7 was nerfed this season.

Although it has received some nerfs in recent updates, the Spitfire will be getting a nerf to its hip-fire spread in the Apex Legends Genesis update, which could see a drop off for the weapon, making it worse from close range.

Arenas weapon price changes

For those who are also interested in changes coming to weapon prices in Arenas, here’s a list of all the updates:

Weapon Prices

  • P2020 Lvl 1 Upgrade: 50 -> 25
  • P2020 Lvl 2 Upgrade: 125 -> 75
  • P2020 Lvl 3 Upgrade: 200 -> 150
  • RE45: 250 -> 200
  • EVA: 250 -> 300
  • Mastiff: 500 -> 400
  • R99: 550 -> 500
  • Volt: 500 -> 550
  • Spitfire: 550 -> 600
  • L-Star: 400 -> 500
  • R301 Lvl 2 Upgrade: 300 -> 350
  • G7 Scout: 350 -> 400
  • G7 Scout Lvl 3 Upgrade: 250 -> 200
  • 30-30: 350 -> 400
  • 30-30 Lvl 3 Upgrade: 250 -> 200

These are definitely some interesting price changes. Seeing the Volt take the R-99 place means we will see the R-99 a lot more in Arenas following the Apex Legends Genesis update.

Further the increase in price for the G7 and the L-Star means we could be seeing these weapons less as well.

That’s all for the upcoming weapon buffs and nerfs. For more Apex Legends, check out the recent rumor about how a new map could possibly be coming to Apex Legends in a future update?

CouRageJD reveals the one thing that makes Apex Legends better than Warzone

Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop went on Twitter to explain what one key Apex Legends feature makes it more fun than Warzone.

CouRage and Apex Legends Bloodhound

100 Thieves co-owner Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop is boldly claiming that Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has one key feature that makes it “way better” than Warzone.

Warzone Season 4 is now well underway, and there were a plethora of changes after the Reloaded update arrived. Its battle royale competitor Apex Legends is also about to launch Season 10 soon.

Now, the 100 Thieves co-owner CouRageJD has made his stance in this rivalry abundantly clear. He boldly stated that Apex Legends is leagues ahead of Warzone due to one major reason.

CourageJD in Black Ops Cold War League Play Ranked

Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop had spent many months away from Apex Legends, but recently returned to battle in the game’s Ranked Leagues. This mode is so popular that Warzone players are asking for one too.

CouRageJD has described himself as “the greatest Wraith player in the history of Apex Legends,” and mentioned how much more fun that game is than Warzone because of the Ranked lobbies.

“New Apex Legends season about to drop, Ranked mode is so fun,” he tweeted. “Ranked arenas about to release, new legend coming, and huge balance patch about to happen.”

The 100 Thieves star then called Apex Legends the “best battle royale available.” Aside from the Ranked mode, he also complimented the clear love for the game that the Apex community has.

“Warzone has had its ups and downs, and I love Apex Legends,” said CouRageJD. “I’ve always had a soft spot for it. I was at the venue when it launched! There’s such a dedicated community, it’s crazy.”

Perhaps, this will encourage the Warzone developers to take inspiration from Apex’s Ranked Leagues. Respawn will implement the cable car feature from Warzone in Apex Legends Season 10.

apex legends mobile beta regions

After being live in India and the Philippines, the closed beta for Apex Legends’ upcoming mobile import has been announced for even more regions, so we have gathered all the recent news for you.

Apart from Apex Legends’ upcoming Season 10 adding a heap of new content on August 3, Respawn Entertainment has also been hard at work developing Apex Legends for mobile gamers.

The mobile beta was originally only available in India. However, as of May 19, the closed beta became available for those registered in the Philippines. The beta has now been announced for even more regions, so let’s get into it.

Apex Legends has made its mark in the battle royale genre, is considered one of the best purely because of its gameplay, great developer communication, and constant updates.

The latest update saw many changes in the patch notes. However, Apex Legends on console and PC isn’t the only thing the developers have focused on, as the mobile version is set to release by the end of 2021.

Apex Legends Mobile beta regions

The Apex Legends Mobile Beta is currently available for those in India and Philipinnes who registered through the Google Play store to experience the battle royale on Android.

There is currently only a select 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 in a few weeks for Indonesia, Peru, Colombia, Egypt, and Lebanon.

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. You can find all of the regions it is currently available below:

  • India
  • Philippines

If you’re interested in participating in the beta, or even when the full game releases, you can stay updated about the Apex Legends Mobile version through this page.

Apex Legends Mobile beta: Gameplay, how to register, new maps, & available Legends

Apex Legends developers dropped an article containing information on the mobile version’s closed beta, which recently launched in India.

Published

After the announcement of Apex Legends Mobile, Respawn Entertainment has rolled out a closed beta test for various regions, with even more to be included in the future.

Apex Legends has been in all the gaming news this week, announcing its highly anticipated Season 10: Emergence, which includes an interesting new Legend, Seer.

Apex Legends was also released on Nintendo Switch in March 2021, increasing its player count to another platform. It doesn’t seem like the developers were done there, though, as closed beta testing continues in various regions for the mobile version.

how to register Apex Legends Mobile beta

The first of a series of beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile was released back in April for residents in India to enjoy, allowing some gamers to escape the reality of the COVID crisis for just a few hours.

Mobile gaming is extremely popular in the Asian continent. With India being the second largest country in Asia, it seems like the perfect place to test Apex Legends Mobile beta.

EA announced on their website that they would be starting with smaller closed beta tests in India and the Philippines, with the latter coming in May. They also said that they would look to expand the beta, adding new regions and iOS support if the tests go well, as currently, the beta is only available for Android.

Currently, the beta is available solely in India and the Philippines, with Respawn announcing plans to release in Indonesia, Peru, Colombia, Egypt, and Lebanon very soon.

How to register for the Apex Legends Mobile beta

For those who want to register for when the beta expands to other regions, you’ll be able to sign up for it on the Google Play Store page, which will inform you when it is available to play in your location.

The closed beta is a first-come, first-serve system, meaning the places are limited, so make sure to register if you are interested. They did announce that once the beta is expanded, they will “launch a page that allows you to pre-register for the game and sign up for news about the betas.”

Just like the console and PC versions, Apex Legends Mobile will be free-to-play when it officially releases. Apex Legends Mobile is being developed to be available on various devices and model versions, but the beta is specifically for Androids running the 6.0 version and up.

Another big piece of news from the announcement is that not only will Apex Legends Mobile be a stand-alone game, not featuring cross-platform, it will also be mostly in third-person. New footage of the closed beta shows players that the first-person perspective is only initiated when aiming down sights. Apart from that, the game will be in third-person.

What maps and Legends are available?

Currently, only the World’s Edge map is available for Apex Legends Mobile. However, they mention plans to add more, and some leaks from dataminers have revealed some interesting developments.

It seems Apex Legends Mobile will also be getting the new Arena mode, with exclusive maps just for the mobile version that won’t be seen on the PC and console.

Further, the only Legends currently available in the Indian closed beta are Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Caustic, Octane, and Wattson. However, one of the screenshots used for promotion has Revenant in it, so the community suspects more Legends could be added in the future.
