Apex Legends has received its latest update: more levels with rewards and improved shields

Apex Legends received its last major update in 2019. So, before leaving for the winter holidays, Respawn decided

increase the maximum level and make changes to the balance.

What have changed

The threshold level has been increased from 100 to 500.In addition, getting to level 100 will require 5% less experience. Due to the simplified requirements, players from level 20 to 99 will also receive a new level if they were missing a little experience to level up.

Players will also receive rewards more often.

  • Level 2 - 20: one pack per level.
  • Level 22 - 300: one pack every two levels.
  • Level 305 - 500: one pack every five levels.

In total, the player will be able to receive 199 Apex Packsupon reaching level 500, whereas previously it was possible to collect only 45. In addition, every 100 levels, gamers will be given talismans for weapons, which will also be available in the store.

As for balance, Respawn have improved the shields,which now cover the head and the player from above. The health of standard shields was increased from 100 to 200 units, and of rare ones - from 250 to 450. Since the area of ​​protection became larger, the character’s speed when using the gadget was reduced from 65 to 55 units.

Interception Pylon Watson also received improvements.The gadget has learned to predict the trajectory of grenades and intercept them if they land in the action area. Now, grenades from any team will be deactivated when they collide with a surface in their area of ​​effect. According to Respawn, this should reduce the number of times grenades hit a protected area and cause damage.

The update is already available for download on PC, and versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be released later. You can find the full patch notes on the game's official forum on Reddit.
