Apex Legends Season 8 Update Adds New Character and More Changes

Respawn Entertainment released the patch notes for the upcoming Season 8 update for Apex Legends containing a new character, weapon, and several changes and fixes.

The new playable character Fuse, revealed last month, will allow players to carry extra grenades, fire cluster bombs, or block off teams with circles of fire.

The other new addition to the game is the 30-30 Repeater, a heavy ammo lever-action rifle that reloads one round at a time and has a built-in charge for higher damage shots with a short build-up. Season 8 also introduces Gold-tier magazines that automatically reload weapons when holstered with the same capacity as Purple magazines.

The game’s first map Kings Canyon will receive a makeover with new areas and some pathways or places opening up to allow more open rotations and space.

A few characters received changes such as a slightly larger hitbox for the popular Wraith, Crypto can longer stick Arc Stars to his drone, and Mirage’s decoys will now create footstep sounds “in a limited capacity.”

Other features in the patch notes include a damage counter on the in-game HUD to track total damage dealt during a match, another way to ping for more ammo in the inventory screen, and healing and reviving following colorblind rules when enabled.

Apex Legends Season 8 begins for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Tuesday, Feb. 2 and will also bring changes to the Ranked mode and a new battle pass of cosmetic rewards.
