Fuse’s hands, lamenting his weak damage, will be delighted: among the meta-changes of Season 9, Legacy, a significant buff of the explosive character will occur. In fact, his Tactic will now have 2 charges and his recovery time will be reduced by 5 seconds. At the beginning of the game.
Lifeline is one of the legends that will receive most of the changes: her passive no longer offers a shield, which is a very important nerf, but she can raise 2 players at the same time and cancel her wish. To make up for this loss, his drone will heal faster and his ultimate will appear more frequently. Suffice it to say that it is played a lot less in season 9 …
With Lifeline, Octane is the legend most weakened by balance: the recovery time of his tactic has been shortened, but he will get almost double his health (from 12 to 20). It will therefore be much more dangerous trying to escape a difficult fight.
Octane continues to perform well. Too good? We want to make Stim something that Octane believes will be used at the right time, rather than using it by default.
A buff that will likely not be noticed by all players is also the removal of the “Low Profile” feature, which did 5% more damage to the affected legends to compensate for their smaller hitbox. Wraith, Lifeline and Wattson were the legends involved.
On the other hand, Loba will be able to use his tactic better, but his Ultimate will appear 30 seconds later. No more market spam! Horizon’s tactics have been refined to the delight of high-profile players. At the end of the realignment, Crypto’s drone will be more useful: it can scan and open the care packages to see if it’s worth putting yourself in danger and recovering your objects …
Another change affects all players: the introduction of a starter kit for the start of the game. Instead of landing with nothing, all players now have a shield, helmet, knockout shield, 2 shield cells, and 2 syringes. Enough to make fights a little more interesting than eliminations with a few punches!
On the gun side, Triple Take fans can unfortunately no longer use it as often (whether as a sniper or … shotgun …) because instead of the peacekeeper it becomes a weapon for the maintenance package. The full list of all of these changes can be found this address.
These changes can be tested together with Arne, Valkyrie and Bocek Arc for free the arrival of the legacy season of Apex Legends on May 4th on all platforms.
