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?

Apex Legends best Arenas Legends: Arena Legends ranked

Apex Legends Arenas is a different experience to BR where some characters fare better than others. Here’s our ranked list for the 3v3 mode.

Published

on

apex legends best legends for arenas

Apex Legends’ 3v3 mode, Arenas, forces an isolated way to play the battle royale which causes some Legends to be more useful than others, so we ranked them all to help you decide on team composition.

There’s a great variety of game modes to choose from in Apex Legends, and while you might be tempted to test your skill in the new Ranked Leagues system for Season 13, Arenas is also a great place for some competition.

Figuring out what Legend to use in Arenas can be a difficult decision, especially when the 3v3 mode is so different from the standard battle royale mode.

With that being said, we ranked all the Legends in Apex according to their viability in the 3v3 mode. Here are the best Legends to use in Arenas.

Best Legends in Apex Legends Arenas for Season 13

Keep in mind that this tier list is solely based on a Legend’s contribution to the team within Arenas, not Respawn‘s battle royale mode. If you’re interested in the best Legends to use for battle royale, check out our piece here:

Remember, due to the nature of Arenas, some of the Legends’ abilities are deemed much less effective, like Loba‘s Black Market. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use them if you would like to, as they can still be great as long as you hit your shots!

  1. Lifeline
  2. Newcastle
  3. Wraith
  4. Gibraltar
  5. Octane
  6. Pathfinder
  7. Valkyrie
  8. Bloodhound
  9. Horizon
  10. Rampart
  11. Mirage
  12. Wattson
  13. Caustic
  14. Fuse
  15. Ash
  16. Bangalore
  17. Seer
  18. Mad Maggie
  19. Crypto
  20. Revenant
  21. Loba

Top 3 Legends for Arenas

3. Wraith

The interdimensional skirmisher, Wraith, takes the number 3 spot for her offensive capabilities and survivability.

Her small hitbox makes it hard for enemies to get shots off on Wraith, allowing her to move fast and get to where she needs to go.

Being aggressive is vital in Arenas, and Wraith’s abilities allow her to do just that, being able to get in and out of the fight easily with her tactical, as well as make a defensive play with the portal for survivability.

2. Newcastle

Newcastle is Season 13’s brand-new Legend, and not only does he perform very well in the battle royale, but he also dominates in Arenas, hence why he is at the number two spot.

Newcastle’s Passive shield revive is extremely strong for getting teammates back into the fight, especially if you purchase a Gold Backpack. His Tactical mobile shield is also great for Arenas, as it allows your team to push and put pressure on the enemy team while being behind moving cover.

Lastly, his Ultimate, Castle Wall, can be bought every round, and although it’s quite expensive, the defensive protection and offensive capabilities of blocking off paths and creating advantageous cover in positions of power are extremely powerful.

1. Lifeline

apex legends arenas Lifeline

Lifeline is a great option for Arenas, mainly due to her ability to keep teammates alive and get more health consumables from Loot Bins.

Lifeline’s health drone can get you or a teammate back to full health without the need to pop a syringe or medkit, which could save precious time. Further, although her Ultimate is fairly useless, her Passive drone revive is arguably her best trait for Arenas.

Combine this with the Gold Backpack and you’ll be reviving teammates back with shield and health, which allows them to get right up and help out. This is unbelievably clutch and also the main reason she is number one on our ranked list.


That’s it for our Apex Legends Arenas ranked list. For more on Apex Legends, check out the best guns to use in Season 13.

Apex Legends Mobile is a separate entity from the PC and console version of the battle royale. With that being said, let’s take a look at the full roster and exclusive Legends in the mobile shooter.

Apex Legends Mobile has some great exclusive features, including a Team Deathmatch mode and unlimited ammo option in the Firing Range.

As well as this, the mobile FPS also has its first mobile-only Legend in Fade, who isn’t being introduced into the PC and console versions of Apex Legends anytime soon, especially as Season 13 just brought Newcastle.

With that being said, what is the Apex Legends Mobile roster, and which Legends are mobile-exclusive?

Apex Legends Mobile full Legend roster

Apex Legends Mobile is a completely separate game from the PC and console version of the battle royale. With that comes a different Legend roster from the main game, and in its current state, it is much smaller.

Currently, there are ten Legends in Respawn‘s Apex Legends Mobile, giving players a decent number to choose from. Players will have to play a fair amount before they are able to unlock all these Legends, but these are the current characters that can be seen in-game:

  • Bloodhound
  • Gibraltar
  • Pathfinder
  • Wraith
  • Bangalore
  • Caustic
  • Mirage
  • Octane
  • Lifeline
  • Fade

Of course, as time goes on and the game is updated we may see more Legends from the PC and console version, as well as exclusive Legends, enter the game.

Apex Legends Mobile-exclusive Legends

Currently, Apex Legends Mobile only has one exclusive Legend. With the launch of Apex Legends Mobile, Fade was introduced as the first Mobile-exclusive Legend.

As more exclusive Legends are introduced, we’ll be sure to update this piece. If you’d like to know more about the exclusive Legends, check out our guide on Fade and whether the mobile-first Legends will make their way to PC and console.

Apex Legends leaks suggest Bangalore’s Prestige skin is arriving in Season 13

Apex Legends leakers have found a design for Bangalore’s Prestige Skin which could be released in one of the events for Season 13.

Apex Legends dataminers may have discovered the next Legend to get a Prestige Skin in Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 has offered a lot of new content for players, as well as introducing various changes in the patch notes that have tweaked the best weapons and Legends to use.

Having said that, players are still awaiting the first Collection Event of the season, which is rumored to bring Valkyrie’s Heirloom.

Dataminers have even gone a step further and discovered what Legend will be receiving a Prestige Skin this season.

According to the reputable leaker’s channel Thordan Smash, the Legend that will be receiving a Prestige Skin in Apex Legends Season 13 will be Bangalore, who also has an Heirloom.

This makes a lot of sense considering the fact that we have had a lot of Bangalore-lore this season thanks to her brother becoming the new Legend, Newcastle.

Further, as Prestige Skins are based on Titanfall Pilots, we know that Bangalore was training to become one, making this Prestige skin make sense.

In Thordan Smash’s latest video, players can actually see the leaked design of Bangalore’s Prestige Skin, which takes on an IMC-themed Pilot outfit.

We’re unsure what the event containing this Bangalore Prestige Skin will be called. However, as the Valkyrie Heirloom is reported to be included in the leaked Awakened Collection Event, we are expecting to see it in the second event for the season.

Remember, these are just leaks and speculation, so take it all with a pinch of salt. Nothing concerning the next Prestige Skin is confirmed as of yet, but once Respawn provides some new information, we’ll be sure to update this piece.
