New Apex Legends map plans for Arenas and BR confirmed in job listing

CharlieINTEL.com 28 June, 2021 - 11:25pm

A new job listing from Respawn seems to hint at the developers possibly introducing brand-new maps for the Apex Legends Arenas and BR modes.

After the Apex Legends developers teased the return of the well-missed Kings Canyon POI, Skull Town, players have been eager to learn what other map changes Respawn has planned for the future.

At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be a new map arriving anytime soon in the Legacy update. Still, a job listing from Respawn seems to hint at the arrival of new original maps in the future since they’re looking for a new level designer.

Respawn’s Jason McCord confirmed on Twitter that the Apex Legends developers are searching for a technical designer and another level designer to work on new map updates.

The recruits would work on Town Takeover events, along with maps for both the battle royale and 3v3 Arenas modes. This could mean that some new locations for Apex Legends are on the horizon.

McCord also hinted at additional “special projects” in his post, but we don’t know for sure what those entail. They could be related to LTMs or even other games than Apex.

We don’t know when exactly we can expect to see a brand-new map arrive in Apex Legends, as Respawn could be saving new additions for Season 10 or other future updates.

Kings Canyon was the only playground for fans to jump into when Apex first launched. Three seasons later, World’s Edge was introduced, with Olympus arriving during Season 7, which has given players various environments to enjoy over the years.

As soon as we have more on Respawn’s plans for new maps, we’ll be sure to let you know. Stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for more Apex Legends, as we will have all the latest here, including everything you need to know about the exciting Genesis Collection Event.

A new exploit has been discovered in Apex Legends that lets players abuse Wraith’s ultimate for unlimited speed boosts.

Apex Legends players are no strangers to bugs and glitches, like the one that kept Valkyrie from properly using her ultimate, as well as strange hacks that let players see through walls.

Now, a new one has been discovered for the Legend Wraith that players are abusing. This exploit is giving the character unlimited speed boosts so that she can keep rotating across the map and dodging attacks.

This glitch was discovered by Reddit user Historical_Permit_38 who highlighted it in a post in the Apex Legends subreddit. They were killed by a Wraith during a match and decided to take a look at what happened.

After spectating the enemy player for a short while, it became clear that the opponent had abused an exploit that allowed them to keep using the speed boost to get around the map. This seemed to be linked to Wraith’s ultimate ability.

The footage showed the player using the speed boost after activating a Dimensional Rift, fooling the game into thinking that they were repeatedly traveling through the same portal.

This exploit lets the player repeatedly speed boost across the map without any limit, making it nearly impossible to shoot them down and giving them an unfair advantage.

This post has over 6,000 upvotes at the time of writing. Hopefully, this will catch the attention of the developers, and they’ll issue an update patch to fix the problem soon enough.

Heirlooms are the rarest items in Apex Legends, and unlocking them can be extremely costly. Here’s how you can save money while getting them.

Heirlooms are unique melee weapons that are suited to specific characters, and there nine of them in Apex Legends currently. Revenant’s “Dead Man’s Curve” Scythe in the Genesis Collection Event was the latest one.

These are particularly difficult to get your hands on as they’re the rarest cosmetics in Apex Legends. However, there are a few ways for you to get past the exceedingly high costs while unlocking Heirlooms.

You can unlock Heirlooms by collecting shards, purchasing 500 packs, or by playing through an Apex Legends Collection Event. Once you’ve collected 24 items in the event, you’ll use the packs to get the cosmetic.

However, each pack will set you back 700 Apex Coins, and you’ll need to spend around $160 if you want to ensure that you get your hands on an Heirloom. There a few different approaches that you can take to save money.

If you want to save up and ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth, then you should purchase event bundles, rather than individual packs. The Genesis Collection Event has brought a couple of these.

The Loba Petty Thief and Crypto Inconspicuous bundles will not only grant you some new skins, but a total of 10 event packs as well. So rather than having to purchase 24 packs, you’ll just need 14 more.

Players that have EA Play receive 10% off for in-game purchases. You can use this to your advantage by getting a $5 subscription to to this service.

Here’s what you need to do:

This will complete the process, and you will now save 10% on Apex Packs and bundles. While you’ll need to spend money on the subscription, it’ll be worth it for all that you save in the long-run.

Using any Crafting metals that you have will further reduce the cost of unlocking Heirlooms. The price varies, depending upon the amount of materials that you have. You’ll be able to get the Heirloom for free with 38,400 of them.

However, that’s an extremely high amount, and you’ll most likely still have to pay a certain amount. Even with a few thousand Crafting Metals, the overall price will come out at over $100.

Of course, there’s really no need to invest that much if you want don’t want to. You can try your luck with the in-game Apex Packs. You’re guaranteed to get shards after opening 500 of these packs.

There ways for you to check how close you are to an Heirloom in Apex Legends. You can try out the options above if you’re willing to pay a certain amount, and these will be cheaper than purchasing 24 event packs.

Apex Legends latest event trailer and patch notes revealed that Revenant would indeed be receiving some significant buffs.

The new Genesis Collection Event will be arriving in Apex Legends on June 29, along with a host of new changes detailed in the patch notes.

Players looking for something new in Apex Legends will be excited for the new content to drop, especially as we may see a meta shift due to the changes that were revealed. One of the most interesting changes, which could see the Legend become top tier, is Revenant’s climbing buff.

As well as being the next Legend to receive an Heirloom for the Genesis Collection Event, Revenant has also been given some changes in the patch notes.

The new Revenant buff was detailed in the official patch notes by Respawn Entertainment, along with a video presenting what players can expect.

Here are the official changes coming to Revenant:

Although the reduced times for Silence and death protection while using the Death Totem is definitely a big nerf for the Legend, the Apex Legends Revenant buff to his Stalker climb height and slimmed down hitbox could appeal to many [players and potentially shoot him up the Legend meta.

As it says in the Patch notes, Revenant’s new climbing buff isn’t “literally unlimited,” but it is significantly higher than before.

To show just how high he can climb, the devs revealed a video showing him climbing up the building under construction just outside Fragment East/West.

This building is 5 stories high, and the fact that Revenant is now able to climb all the way to the top means there will be a crazy amount of options for the Legend to take fights and push enemies all over every map. Thanks to the powerful Apex Legends Revenant buff.

This Apex Legends Revenant buff could draw a lot of attention to the Legend, and players may use/encounter him much more when the update finally drops.

For those who already love using Revenant, we’re sure you couldn’t have asked for anything better, as although the devs teased that they would be buffing his climbing ability, not many were expecting it to be this much of an increase.

#SaveApexRanked trends on Twitter as top players call for changes

Dexerto 28 June, 2021 - 05:45pm

The same day Respawn said they were looking at various options to improve their methods of detecting and banning cheaters, Sweet, an Apex Twitch streamer and NRG pro, put out a Twitlonger on June 28 that basically summarizes the communities problems with how devs are handling, or not handling cheaters.

Empty Promises and False Hope. #SaveApexRanked before it's too late.

In the post, Sweet said he and other Apex content creators came up with the #SaveApexRanked hashtag because they could no longer sit by and watch “the game spiral further out of control.”

The problem isn’t just cheating in games, but also DDoS attacks against Apex’s servers when one of the cheaters does get knocked out.

It didn’t take long at all for the hashtag Sweet included with his Twitlonger, #SaveApexRanked, to start trending on Twitter with players and influencers alike tweeting out the tag.

If you like ranked, or just wanna help the game to be better, very simply, fucking tweet out #SaveApexRanked

Haven’t even bothered in a while #SaveApexRanked

Like we mentioned, this all comes the same day as Respawn detailed how they were “pursuing several options” to fix this very issue, but whether or not they’ll respond to this latest push from the community remains to be seen.
