Apex Legends received the latest update: more reward levels and improved shields

Apex Legends received the 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

Threshold level increased from 100 to 500. In addition, to get the 100 level, you will need 5% less experience. Due to the simplification of requirements, players from level 20 to 99 will also receive a new level if they lacked a little experience to upgrade.

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 get 199 Apex Pack atreaching level 500, while before 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 modified 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 rare - from 250 to 450. Since the protection area has become larger, the character’s speed when using the gadget was reduced from 65 to 55 units.

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

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