Apex Legends Season 9 finally removes Low Profile

Low Profile will officially be removed from Apex Legends in Season 9, with characters like Wraith and Wattson no longer taking more damage.

Ever since its launch, Low Profile has divided fans of Apex Legends. Two years and nine seasons later, Respawn has finally called time on the debuff, removing it from the game’s less-armored Legends in Season 9: Legacy.

Apex Legends come in all shapes and sizes, so in an attempt to balance some of the game’s smaller and quicker characters, Respawn introduced Low Profile. Characters like Wraith and Wattson could make use of their speed, but their damage taken increased by 5% as a result.

Respawn removed Low Profile from Pathfinder earlier in the year, and confirmed plans to take it out of the game completely. Finally, that time has come, with the debuff exiting the game as part of the Season 9: Legacy seasonal update in May.

From Season 9 onwards, these smaller Legends will take the same damage compared to their bigger counterparts, leveling the playing field in terms of damage.

There is one exception though. Fortified Legends like Caustic and Gibraltar will retain their buff, which reduces incoming damage by 15% to make up for the larger hitboxes.

When the plan was first discussed back in March, Respawn developer Daniel Klein admitted that a need to “nerf Lifeline” was proving to be a challenge in removing Low Profile entirely. That has been addressed by the significant revamp the healer will receive in Season 9.

While Lifeline is getting an overhaul, the removal of Low Profile will be the only changes to Wraith and Wattson, at least for the time being.

Fans of the popular battle royale won’t have long to wait to get their hands on Apex Legends Season 9, which drops on May 4. The update will see the introduction of the new Legend Valkyrie, the Bocek Bow weapon, and changes to Olympus.

Wattson’s fence unusable in Apex Legends despite Season 14 fixes

Players are having trouble with Wattson’s fences yet again in Apex Legends, despite the Legend receiving fixes in Season 14 update.

Apex Legends players are frustrated with Wattson’s fences as they claim the ability is unusable in Season 14.

Apex Legends players are finally able to enjoy the brand new Season 14 update, as the season dropped on August 9. Players have been getting to grips with Vantage, the overhauled Kings Canyon map, and various buffs and nerfs in the patch notes.

While some in the community have been focused on the Valkyrie nerfs and Mad Maggie buffs, which could potentially see her rise in popularity, others are disappointed with Wattson.

The new update supposedly brought improvements to Wattson’s fence placement, but the community have been experiencing the opposite.

Reddit user oscarwildeaf has highlighted the issue with Wattson’s fences on the Apex Legends subreddit, posting a video of the problem while sarcastically saying “another great patch for Wattson.”

The patch notes claimed that the devs had made “improvements” to the placement of Wattson fences, as there have been many issues with the ability in the past.

In the video, the player attempts to place Wattson fences but is inconveniently unable to do so, despite the UI showing that it is possible.

This is obviously extremely frustrating for Wattson players in Apex Legends Season 14, as her electric fences are her main tool and this isn’t the first time there have been issues with it.

One user in the comments of the post even said “Wattsons been dealing with this for a while anytime they change fences or arcstars they break s***. You can expect a fix maybe in season 15, time to retire Wattson for 14.”

Clearly, this player feels that Wattson’s fence placement will be broken for some time, but hopefully Respawn prove them wrong and bring a permanent fix for the issue soon.

On the topic of bugs and issues, a new Apex Legends Season 14 glitch is causing characters to have the wrong abilities, making for some hilarious clips.

When is Apex Legends Season 15? Season 14 end date, leaked Legend, more

Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Season 15 including the expected start date, Legend, and map leaks.

Vantage and Mirage in Apex Legends Season 14

Apex Legends Season 14 arrived on August 9, bringing new Legend Vantage and significant Kings Canyon map changes. Season 15 is next up, so here’s everything we know including the expected start date, leaked Legend, and more.

Apex Legends is now in its fourteenth season since its February 2019 release, bringing new weapons, maps, and of course, Legends, throughout the seasons. Season 14 has brought Vantage to the Apex Games, as well as increasing the level cap and changing Battle Pass challenges.

Season 15 arrives later in 2022, so here’s when Season 14 is scheduled to end and usher in the new season, as well as the leaked Legend and map that could arrive.

Apex Legends Season 15 start date & Season 14 end date

While Respawn Entertainment haven’t revealed a release date for Apex Legends Season 15, Season 14 is set to wrap up on November 8, 2022.

Assuming there are no delays, we expect Season 15 to kick off right after Season 14 concludes, bringing a new Battle Pass, Legend, and perhaps even a new map.

New Legend leaked for Apex Legends Season 15

According to datamining from ‘SomeoneWhoLeaks,’ Catalyst is set to be Apex Legends Season 15’s Legend.

Catalyst’s leaked abilities have been known for a while now, where the Legend will be able to create cover and platforms with ferrofluid. SomeoneWhoLeaks said that the Season 14 update added “New lines of code for the next legend, Catalyst,” with the files including a “ferro_wall” ability.

Here are all of Catalyst’s leaked abilities:

  • Passive: Reinforce
    • Standing near your ferrofluid structures, doors, and other Legends placeables will strengthen their integrity and allow them to take significantly more damage.
  • Tactical: Ferro Shot
    • On impact, the shot creates a ramp of hardened ferrofluid that can be extended with more shots. Can also be used to create platforms on walls. (Max 3 structures)
  • Ultimate: Iron Tower
    • Ferrofluid rises up from below pushing you upwards while creating a tall solid column under you.

Of course, this is just a leak for now so Catalyst might be scheduled for a later season or scrapped altogether.

New map could arrive in Apex Legends Season 15

An upcoming Apex Legends map called “Divided Moon” leaked back in March, and if Respawn Entertainment stay consistent with how often they add a new map, it could arrive in Season 15.

Respawn tends to add a new Apex Legends map every four seasons, with Season 3 bringing World’s Edge, Season 7 bringing Olympus, and Season 11 bringing Storm Point. This means that Season 15 could be the next season to bring a new map, but there’s far from any guarantee.

Insane Apex Legends glitch is giving characters the wrong abilities

Apex Legends players are reporting a strange glitch that’s causing their favorite characters to use the wrong abilities.

Published

Vantage in Apex Legends

Players hopping into Apex Legends Season 14 are encountering a bizarre glitch that is giving their favorite characters the abilities of other Legends.

Apex Legends Season 14 is finally here, and players are eagerly exploring all the new content that has arrived in the update, including the new Legend Vantage as well as numerous weapon buffs and nerfs.

However, the season’s launch hasn’t been problem-free as there are reports coming in from the Apex Legends community about a strange glitch that’s causing Legends to use the wrong abilities.

Reddit user ‘LiverPoisoningToast’ shared a short clip of their gameplay as Ash in the Apex Legends subreddit. Immediately players noticed something was wrong as the Legend was using Loba’s abilities.

Many of the commenters were amused by what happened in this clip, with one user sarcastically stating: “Well, at least the teleport works.”

Another post from Redditor ‘ZuVielPizza’ showed them using Vantage’s abilities while playing as Newcastle. Even though their teammate was actually playing as Vantage, they both had the same abilities.

Newcastle is a Defensive Legend who protects and revives his companions while Vantage is a Sniper that picks off her enemies from a distance. Their ability sets are extremely different, so players hoping to play as their favorite characters are finding this glitch jarring.

More examples of this glitch keep popping up in the Apex Legends subreddit, with another user sharing a clip of Bangalore and Bloodhound switching abilities. The comments of these posts are filled with players sharing their own experiences with the glitch.

One user commented: “I was in a game where the Wraith on our team had Vantage’s abilities and voice lines.” Another one mentioned having all of Seer’s abilities when playing as the Legend Watson.

At the time of writing, the exact cause of the bug is unknown, but players are hoping that Respawn will fix it quickly as it’s popping up frequently. Hopefully, this problem will be patched up in an update soon.
