Apex Legends Fight Night Collection Event

The Fight Night Collection Event brought a plethora of new content when it went live on January 5. Aside from the Pathfinder Town Takeover and new heirloom, the developers also added several buffs and nerfs, we have details on all of them for you.

Collection Events are among the most exciting Apex Legends traditions. They’ve been around since Season 1 serving as opportunities for Respawn to show off brand new skins, challenges, heirlooms, and daily objectives to players.

The new Fight Night Collection Event finally went live on January 5 and brought many changes to the Battle Royale game. This includes an heirloom for Gibraltar and a brand new LTM called Airdrop Escalation. Rampart has also been giving a new buff during the event.

Here’s every character and weapon that has received a nerf or buff in the latest update.

Rampart’s buffs and nerfs

We’ll start this list by talking about Rampart. This Legend has a dedication to being proficient with heavy weaponry and now the Fight Night update has given a buff to her Amped Cover ability. The cooldown time for this has been reduced.

The waiting time to recharge Amped Cover was initially 30 seconds, but it has been reduced to 20. Fans have been asking for a buff to her abilities for a while, so this is great news. Do keep in mind that it will take three seconds for you to actually place the fortifications.

The developers also addressed a couple of bugs that players have been affected by when playing as Rampart. This includes one that changes the screens when using the Sheila mini-gun.

Horizon’s buffs and nerfs

Horizon wasn’t part of the first draft of patch notes that came out before the Collection Event, but was added at the very last second. She got a small change to her Gravity Lift ability that is meant to discourage players from using it too often.

The ability’s effective cooldown time has been increased from 16 to 21 seconds. This means that you’ll have to wait an additional five seconds to recharge Gravity Lift.

Caustic’s buffs and nerfs

Respawn originally had plans to give Caustic’s Gas Trap ability a buff in the new patch. The cooldown was going to be reduced to 20 seconds and this didn’t sit well with fans. Senior Game Designer, Daniel Klein, responded to the criticism and stood by the buff.

Ultimately, the Legend was removed from the update when it finally dropped on January 5. The developers listened to the complaints from fans, and ended up canceling the tweak.

Apex Legends Weapon changes: Hemlok, Mastiff, Prowler

Moving onto the new weapon alterations in the update, The Prowler weapon has been given a buff to its reserve bullets. The amount has been increased from 175 to 210, while the damage and range remain unchanged.

The rest of the weapon changes have been nerfs. The Hemlok’s damage has been brought down from 22 to 20. The Mastiff’s pellet spread for the third and fourth shots has also changed as the range has been reduced from 10 degrees to 7.5. 

There have also been a few bug fixes for many of the Legends, along with quality of life fixes. You can take a look at these changes in the full Fight Night patch notes.

Apex Legends Season 11 Storm Point map will feature loads of wildlife

Apex Legends Season 11 will bring a brand new map, Storm Point, which will feature an abundance of wildlife for players to interact with.

The new Apex Legends Season 11 Storm Point map will supposedly contain an abundance of wildlife that players will be able to interact with.

Apex Legends Season 11 isn’t far off for players now, as Respawn has officially revealed the new season through two recent trailers.

The launch trailer for Season 11: Escape even showed off the new Storm Point map, as well as Legend Ash.

The trailer featured a variety of wildlife, from things we’ve seen in the past like Flyers and Prowlers, to new animals we’ve never encountered.

This isn’t the first time a map will feature wildlife, as we’ve seen Prowlers on World’s Edge and Flyers on Kings Canyon.

Having said that, some of the leaks reported by Thordan Smash surrounding the wildlife on Storm Point suggest that the new Season 11 map will have way more variety of these animals, as well as perhaps deeper interaction with them.

Prowlers

Prowlers aren’t new to Apex Legends, however, Storm Point may feature a more tropical version of the creature.

In the video, Thordan states that Prowlers will have their designated area, and will not be free to roam the map. This will most likely be similar to Trials on World’s Edge, where players fight off Prowlers for rewards.

Spiders

Although it was quite unexpected, the new launch trailer also showed off some new wildlife we haven’t seen before, spiders. For those with arachnophobia, you may not like this, but there will also be a portion of the map in Storm Point where spiders will spawn.

The spiders will not be roaming the map freely and will be restricted to a certain location. There will also be a maximum of twelve spiders allowed in this area so don’t worry about being overrun.

Code has also revealed that players may see spider eggs, which will burst with some of the critters jumping out and chasing players down.

Goliath

Storm Point will also host a Goliath, a massive animal that is almost like an alien Ape, twice the width of Gibraltar.

Once again, this Goliath will have its own “pit” which the creature will be restricted to. Players will most likely have to fight this beast to gain rewards, and it may not be that easy considering the animal’s size.

Flyers

Finally, we have the Flyers, which are also not new to Apex Legends. Players have seen Flyers cruising around the skies of Kings Canyon often holding Deathboxes with loot. Players can shoot the Flyers for them to release the Deathboxes.

Perhaps they will be similarly returning to Storm Point, or maybe players will be able to interact with them differently. There will be a maximum of 54 Flyers on the map at one time, which is a hell of a lot!

Rewards

One thing Thordan is certain about is that players will be rewarded for their interactions with the wildlife, especially when it comes to the Goliath. Players will likely be rewarded with high-tier loot when taking on these creatures, so regardless of your fears it will be worth it!

There you have it, the new Apex Legends Season 11 map, Storm Point, just may have more in store for players than we expected.

Of course, these are all leaks so take this information lightly, but we do expect to see all these types of wildlife in some compacity.

Apex Legends Ash abilities revealed by Season 11 leak

Players are more excited than ever for Apex Legends Season 11 and the latest leaks have revealed the abilities for the new Legend Ash.

Published

Season 11 has officially been revealed for Apex Legends, and although information concerning the new Legend has been sparse, new leaks have revealed Ash’s abilities.

Apex Legends Season 11 is just around the corner, with players excited for both the new map and the upcoming patch notes.

A lot was revealed in the Stories from the Outlands trailer regarding the lore and character of Ash, however, not a lot has been revealed regarding her abilities.

This latest leak has given players a glimpse into what her kit can do, and it’s pretty interesting the range the Apex Legends Ash abilities look like they will cover.

The latest Apex Legends launch trailer for Season 11 wasn’t gameplay of the new season, but rather an action-driven cinematic showing off what players can expect.

This trailer did show some of what Ash can do, but the new leaks revealing the descriptions and names of her kit have provided further details on the abilities.

Apex Legends YouTuber Thordan Smash revealed the Apex Legends Ash abilities in a recent video, showing off the Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate for the Season 11 Legend.

The Apex Legends Ash abilities are as follows:

  • Passive: Marked for Death
    • Ash’s map reveals all deathbox locations. Click on a deathbox to mark surviving attackers.
  • Tactical: Arc Snare
    • Releases a slow-moving snare of charged electricity that tethers people and does damage to those who get close.
  • Ultimate: Phase Breach
    • Tear open a one-way portal to a targeted location

Her Passive sounds very useful, as being able to mark the remaining enemies of a team will allow teams to get fights off much faster without being third-partied while trying to find the rest of the team.

The Tactical sounds like something players can throw at enemies behind cover, doing slight damage to them to either down an enemy with very low health, or just as an annoyance.

Lastly, the Ultimate could just put Wraith out of business, as it’s similar to her portal but much fast and more direct. Further, we’ll know more about it when the season officially launches, but if you can do this through walls, this will be very powerful for relocating and rotating with your team.

That’s all for the Apex Legends Ash abilities in Season 11. Remember, these are leaks about the Apex Legends Ash abilities so take them with a pinch of salt, but if they’re true, Ash is definitely a Legend to look out for.

New Apex Legends Season 11 map Storm Point gameplay

Even more leaks surrounding Apex Legends Season 11 has been revealed, and this time it’s gameplay of the new Storm Point map.

Published

Apex Legends Season 11 will bring a brand new map to the game called Storm Point, and leakers have already started to reveal gameplay of the map from a past playtest.

Apex Legends players couldn’t have asked for more when it comes to Season 11, as not only will fans be getting a brand new Legend and weapon, there will also be a new map to battle it out on.

Leaks revealed that there would be a new map in the past, and now we know it is official, players have been wanting to get a glimpse of it. Unfortunately for the devs, some playtesters have decided to leak footage to the public, showing off the new Storm Point map.

The leaks come from an Apex YouTube channel that has revealed several things concerning Season 11. However, the latest video that shows a playtester’s gameplay from the new Storm Point map is by far the biggest leak concerning Apex Legends Season 11 so far.

For those who have been excited to see the new map, you won’t have to wait for the gameplay reveal on October 25, as, at the time of writing this article, the video is still available to view.

Although the quality isn’t great and the video is heavily watermarked, you can still get a great idea of what Respawn has gone for with Storm Point. The map is very bright and sunny, with a strong tropical theme.

As well as palm trees and turquoise water, we also have buildings overgrown with foliage, and parachute pods similar to the one that landed on Olympus.

The map is also huge and broken up by massive rocky mountains that seem to bring players into chokepoints when rotating, which could make for some pretty epic final circles.

There’s also a crazy-looking rotational tool built into the map that looks similar to something Doom players might be familiar with. The player walks in this huge gravity launcher that flings them over a large distance, much further than say an Octane Launch Pad would take you.

This may be an important rotation tool for teams, and it could be something players will be fighting for when the map officially drops.

Of course, we’ll know more about the map once it officially launches along with Season 11 of Apex Legends, but it’s pretty interesting to see some gameplay prior to its release.
