A brand new Legend in the popular battle royale Apex Legends was recently announced for the game, along with a new weapon, some map updates, the brand new Ranked Arenas mode, and a lot more. The patch notes for the Apex Legends Emergence update were released earlier this week, and it’s now time to go through them all to see what else EA and Respawn have to offer players with Apex Legends. So, what do you need to know about the latest Apex Legends Emergence update? Well, there’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s get into everything we found out in the most recent Apex Legends patch notes! Apex Legends Emergence is available on all platforms, now including the Nintendo Switch. The following patch notes for Apex Legends Emergence can also be found on the game’s official website.

New Legend: Seer

Check out Seer’s abilities:

  • Passive – Heart Seeker
    • Visualize and hear the heartbeats of nearby enemies when aiming down sights to get a clue to their location. Seer is able to “ADS” even while not holding a weapon.
  • Tactical – Focus of Attention
    • Summon microdrones to emit a focused, delayed blast that goes through walls, revealing enemies (and their health bars!), plus interrupting their actions.
  • Ultimate – Exhibit
    • Create a sphere of microdrones that reveal the footsteps of enemies moving quickly or firing their weapons within.
  • Class Passive: Recon
    • Scanning survey beacons reveals the next circle’s location.

Map Update

  • After months of aggressive mining by the Harvester on World’s Edge, the land is overmined, overburdened, and pushed to its limit. The earth has fractured and erupted as nature is reclaiming what’s hers. Hammond is scrambling to contain the damage they’ve caused using weather-controlling machines: the Climatizer rapidly cools the surrounding area to subzero temperatures, and a Lava Siphon stabilizes the caldera. Fight for control of the always-moving gondolas in Climatizer and Lava Siphon, traverse the bubbling hot lava with caution, and show everyone what Legends are made of!

New Weapon: Rampage

  • Rampart’s latest creation, the Rampage LMG, blasts onto the scene and has absolutely no chill. This high-powered heavy ammo LMG takes its time but packs one hell of a punch. The Rampage excels at mid-range combat but struggles up close with a slower fire rate. Not one for just accepting weakness, Rampart managed to modify the Rampage’s internal combustion mechanism with, what else? Thermite! Loading a thermite grenade into the Rampage’s special chamber overclocks the fire rate and lets Legends go on a, well… rampage!

Ranked Arenas

  • With the launch of the Emergence update, we’re introducing Ranked Arenas! You begin your journey through Ranked Arenas in 10 placement matches where your performance will determine your initial Match Marking Rank (MMR) and your starting rank. MMR variance is wider initially, so your first 10 matches might be stomp-or-get-stomped until your MMR defines your placement.

Quality of Life Updates

  • Added a new badge: Win Streak. Can you get 2, 3, 4, or 5 wins in a row?
  • Added a “Hold On” response to enemy pings.
  • Added distinct sound effects to the Gold Backpack’s revive. VFX were added in the Chaos Theory update. This gives additional feedback when players are close to but not in line-of-sight of revives.
  • Updated the Heirloom store to give players a better view of all the items related to that item.
  • Updated Open Pack Button to show how many packs of each type are available to open. Highlighting the button shows a complete breakdown.
  • Private Matches
    • Added Admin Toggle Option for Aim Assist Mode
    • Added lite Red Zone Filter for Observers in Freecam
    • Added custom ending variants to map/mode selection
    • Added more Arenas maps to map/mode selection
    • Fixed Observer script error encountered in Arenas
    • Fixed multiple script errors for Observers and Players for BR
    • Fixed more real-time API event reporting.

Legend Meta

  • Fuse
    • Enemies caught inside the ring of fire from Fuse’s Motherlode ultimate are now revealed to Fuse’s team.

  • Horizon
    • Reduced the slow after the initial Black Hole pull.
    • Bumped Horizon gravity lift-up speed to a happy medium between 9.1 and Legacy update launch values.
  • Revenant
    • There’s now a visual and audio cue when Death Totem protection is about to end which can be seen/heard by other players.
    • Added a brief slow after being recalled to Death Totem.

    • Cooldown on Tactical has been reduced 25s -> 20s.
    • Ultimate cooldown has been reduced 3.5m -> 3m. Duration reduced from 20s -> 15s.

Weapon Meta

  • Supply Drop Rotation
    • Prowler returned to floor loot.
    • M600 Spitfire and Alternator SMG replacing Prowler in Supply Drops.
  • Hop Ups
    • Boosted Loader – Reloading near empty (but not at 0) increases reload speed and overloads the next magazine with extra rounds. This hop up will be equipable to the Hemlok Burst AR and the Wingman.
    • To make room, the Anvil Receiver and Quickdraw Holster are being vaulted for now.
  • Fully-Kitted Rotation
    • Added: Peacekeeper, Rampage, RE-45, Flatline, and Charge Rifle

    • Sniper Stocks on Marksman weapons will offer increased stability and sway reduction with slightly reduced handling bonuses (from tactical stocks)
  • L-Star
    • Now takes Energy Magazines—Mags on the L-STAR work differently than other weapons because of its unique interaction with ammo. Instead they will allow the L-STAR to fire more shots before it overheats and allow it to cool-off its heat build up slightly faster.
    • Now take Barrels for recoil reduction
    • Projectile VFX scale reduced by roughly half
    • First-Person on-hit impact effect intensity reduced
