Apex Legends players think that OG Legend is better than Newcastle in Season 13

The Apex Legends community have revealed why they prefer to use OG Legend over Newcastle in Season 13: Saviors.

Newcastle has had a major impact since his arrival in Apex Legends Season 13, but players have explained the reasons why they prefer to play as one of the OG Legends.

Apex Legends Season 13: Saviors brought a plethora of content for players to explore, and the most notable change in the seasonal update has been the addition of the brand-new Legend Newcastle.

This Defensive Legend provides aid to allies when they find themselves overwhelmed and has made a major impact in the current season. However, Apex Legends players have decided that one of the original Legends is better than Newcastle.

Newcastle Apex Legends

Lifeline is a Support Legend that revives her teammates in combat and is one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends, with players calling for the developers to bring buffs for her.

Many in the Apex Legends community were concerned that the arrival of Newcastle would push Lifeline out of the meta, but it seems that players have decided that they prefer the OG Legend’s ability set.

Reddit user ‘Salt_Concentrate2937’ made a post in the Apex Legends subreddit, pointing out that Lifeline now has a higher pick rate than Newcastle. The replies in the thread explained why players prefer the original medic.

One user praised Lifeline’s ability to fight back while reviving her teammates: “Being able to shoot and revive at the same time is an amazing asset.” They pointed out that she can use gunfire and grenades to handle enemies during the revival process.

The same player then pointed out that this becomes more difficult when playing as Newcastle: “The enemy team can use that time to push into a position where they can finish the fight. This happens most of the time when you take a revive with Newcastle.”

Another commenter claimed that Lifeline is being picked more than Newscastle because her ability set is “more solo-friendly,” so players have to face less of a learning curve when playing as her.

This makes her more appealing to new players who are looking to pick a Legend whose abilities are easy to get a grasp on. Thus, Lifeline is more likely to be picked than Newcastle by those players.

While this thread features a ton of praise for Lifeline, a few players still had nice things to say about Newcastle, with one user claiming that the new Legend is better suited for teams and solo players.

One of the commenters stated: “Newcastle’s kit is way better for a team or as a solo player… the only thing I can think of she has the advantage in is hitbox size”.

There are a variety of different opinions in this thread regarding both Legends, but Lifeline has been getting extra appreciation from the Apex Legends community. The devs have no plans to change her in Season 13, but we might see her get buffed in Season 14.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.



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 Coin pack options

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.

Apex Legends characters fighting

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
