Battlefield 2042

Fans of these AAA games will undoubtedly be happy to see what new things are coming, with Battlefield moving into the future – 2042 to be exact.

Along with new features and other tidbits concerning the game, EA has already confirmed that it will unveil the much-talked-about REDACTED Mode.

As described on the EA website: “Enter the wide universe of Battlefield in a new experience, designed as a love letter to our fans, coming to Battlefield 2042. Stay tuned for more details coming at EA Play Live on July 22.”

Renowned insider Tom Henderson, who has already correctly leaked multiple pieces of information about Battlefield 2042 already, says the mode might be called “Battlehub.”

It will apparently be a remix mode of maps and weapons from previous Battlefield games all tied together to make one crazy game mode. A new official teaser has further hinted at this leak being true as a classic Bad Company 2 map remaster looks to be the case.

We’ll have to wait and see what EA Play Live 2021 reveals about the rumored mode.

FIFA 22

We expect some more information to arrive during the official EA Play Live 2021 presentation to sweeten the pot.

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.

Published

on

apex legends lifeline

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.

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 21 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 13 now underway, Newcastle is the latest to join the roster.

Let’s take a look at how the new Legend has shaken up the roster by looking at the current Legend pick rates in Season 13, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.

  1. Octane – 11.4%
  2. Wraith – 10.2%
  3. Valkyrie – 10%
  4. Pathfinder – 9.5%
  5. Bloodhound – 8.4%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13

5. Bloodhound – 8.4%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.4%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

4. Pathfinder – 9.5%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 9.5%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

3. Valkyrie – 10%

Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 10%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.

As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.

Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.

2. Wraith – 10.2%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with a 10.2% pick rate in Season 13.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.

1. Octane – 11.4% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13

With an 11.4% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.

Apex Legends Mobile leak claims Solos mode arrives before PC & console

Apex Legends players have been calling for a Solos mode for many seasons, but according to leaks mobile players could be getting it first.

Published

Apex Legends Mobile leaks are suggesting that the handheld version of the battle royale will be getting a Solos mode before PC and Console.

Apex Legends offers players a variety of ways to play the battle royale. Those who like to enjoy casual games can hop into public games, while those who like a challenge can indulge in the Ranked Leagues.

There’s also the Arenas mode and various LTMs ever so often with the Awakening Collection Event for Season 13 bringing the return of Control.

Having said that, Apex Legends players have been wanting a Solos mode ever since the Iron Crown Event back in Season 2, however, it seems mobile will be getting it first.

Back in Apex Legends Season 2, players were given the Iron Crown Event, which saw a Solo LTM introduced into the game. Ever since it was removed, it has yet to return.

This has left Apex players wanting a Solos mode for over ten seasons, and according to leaks, Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 could be getting the highly requested mode first.

Apex Legends dataminer ThatOneGamingBot discovered some interesting icons in the Apex Legends Mobile files, suggesting that Solos will be introduced.

This of course caused disappointing reactions from the community, who have been hoping that the mode would be introduced on consoles and PC as well. Thordan Smash sarcastically commented “Nice that Apex Legends is finally getting Solo Mode…for mobile,” along with a sad face emoji.

Having said that, the dataminer did reply to Thordan’s reaction, stating that the Solos mode from Apex Mobile is “probably an LTM.” While this could be true, Thordan Smash replied again saying that he’d “gladly take solos as an LTM again” on consoles and PC.


We’ll have to wait and see how this leaked Solos mode will be introduced on Apex Legends Mobile. It does seem that the handheld version of the battle royale is getting more and more exclusive content, especially as the second mobile-exclusive Legend was also leaked for Season 2.
