Apex Legends Season 10 launched Aug. 3, and with the new season comes a new patch. For players new and old, a new champion, as well as a fresh meta, awaits. With all of the many changes coming in the popular battle royale's 10th season, these are the three things players may find themselves unhappy with upon dropping into World's Edge or Olympus.
1. Seer's Abilities
Coming into Season 10, Seer was highly anticipated to shake up the meta of Apex Legends, but after seeing the abilities of this new character it doesn't seem like that will be the case. Seer's abilities act in many ways as information gathering. The ability to get a clue of the enemy's location, catching enemies through walls, and using their footsteps against them. Does this sound at all familiar? Seer seems to be almost a buffed version of Bloodhound, one of the original champions of Apex Legends. The ability to track and find enemies not directly in a player's line of sight was already a controversial issue, and with the addition of Seer, that problem can now be double in any given trio. Or at best, Seer will simply replace Bloodhound and we'll be in the same place as before.
2. Anvil Receiver Vaulted
The Anvil Receiver was vaulted to begin the new season. This popular Hop-Up was able to make the R301 and the Flatline competitive even at longer ranges. Unfortunately for those who are not at the top of the game's skill hierarchy, competing at long ranges with snipers such as the Kraber will be almost impossible. The damage falloff will impact these guns quite heavily in the late game, and it remains to be seen if it does anything to disrupt the grip that the R301 and Flatline currently have on the meta.
3. Disruptor Rounds
Disruptor Rounds are back in Apex Legends, and they are almost as terrifying as they were the first time around. During Season 2, the Alternator was regarded as one of the best weapons in the game, almost entirely due to this Hop-Up which allowed for increased damage against shields. Now, eight seasons later, Disruptor Rounds make their return in the supply drop rotation. While the gun will be considerably rarer than the floor loot guns, any player who receives this weapon will be at an inherent advantage in almost every situation imaginable. Whether or not the Disruptor Rounds will wreak as much havoc as they did in the early stages of Apex Legends will be seen with time, but seeing this item back in the game could be game-changing.
