Apex Legends Emergence is almost here, and there will be a ton of changes when the new update goes live, including various balancing changes to Legends. Here’s every buff and nerf in Season 10.
Respawn apply buffs and nerfs to certain characters so that Apex Legends still feels fresh after a new update drops. They also keep fans posted on their progress through community updates.
Some of these changes are welcomed, specifically those for Legends that have been underperforming or are considered overpowered. Other balance updates can be points of controversy.
Here’s every known buff and nerf coming in Apex Legends Season 10.
Confirmed Apex Legends buffs and nerfs for Season 10
One of the more prominent changes in the new season of Apex Legends will be to Caustic’s gas. The damage per tick will no longer be locked, and will now increase every 2 seconds.
However, the Season 10 update will also have an adverse effect on the gas cloud from his toxic fumes. The buff will cause it to dissipate five seconds faster.
While we don’t know exactly what changes Respawn is planning for Crypto, they’ve made it abundantly clear that they want to improve his popularity. Live balance designer John Larson talked about his low pick rate.
“When assessing how to make him a bit sexier, I think streamlining the flow between Crypto mode and drone mode, and maybe distributing that power in a more healthy way so it’s not quite as binary, would be a nice way of approaching that,” the developer said.
It’s unclear whether these changes will take place right at the start of Season 10, or if Crypto will get buffs in the mid-season update.
The developers have confirmed that Fuse will be getting a buff to both his Tactical and his Ultimate abilities. The Knuckle Cluster Tactical’s duration has been doubled, letting the Legend dish out pain longer.
Enemies that are hit by the Motherlode Ultimate will now be highlighted, and they will remain visible even if they’re taking cover.
Horizon received a movement speed nerf when using the Gravity Lift, and this ended up being one of her biggest weak points. Now, the developers are reverting this change but not completely to its pre-nerf state.
This means that you’ll be much more mobile when using Horizon’s Gravity Lift ability in combat.
Rampart: Buff (mid-season)
When Season 10 goes live, one of Rampart’s inventions will become available as a weapon in the form of the Rampage LMG. The Legender herself will also be receiving a buff, but developers have said this will be later on.
Respawn will continue their development and tests on this balancing update, and they haven’t revealed what exactly it will be for. It will probably be related to her Ultimate ability.
Revenant already received a major buff as part of the Genesis Collection event. Now, the developers are planning to introduce a few more changes to make the Legend easier to play against.
Season 10 will add a visual and audio indicator to let enemies know when Revenant’s death protection is about to end. This nerf will give opponents a fair chance to react quickly.
Wattson: Buff & Nerf
Wattson already comes with a fairly high win rate, so buffing her can be tricky. She’ll still be receiving a buff in Season 10, but this will be followed by a buff later on to keep things balanced.
Her buff will focus on making her more fun to play, while the nerf will probably be to her hitbox, according to live balance designer John Larson.
Those are all the confirmed buffs and nerfs dropping in Season 10, either at launch or in the mid-season update. Also, check out when Apex Legends Season 10 is going to start.

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.
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 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.

When did Apex Legends come out?
Apex Legends has become one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but when did it first release?
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?
When did Apex Legends release?
Apex Legends released on February 4, 2019, and was available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Since then, the developers have released next-gen versions of the game for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, offering upgraded graphics and performance thanks to the power of the new consoles.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes: Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg, bug fixes, more
Apex Legends has a brand-new 1.99 patch which brings bug fixes and new interactive Easter Egg for Lifeline’s Clinic.
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.
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.
