Apex Legends' Season 9 is arriving on May 4, so let's take a look at all the confirmed buffs and nerfs coming in the new season. Although not much is known about what the upcoming season will focus on, we do know some agents are gonna get some helpful buffs while others will receive some long-requested nerfs.
All Confirmed Buffs and Nerfs Arriving in Season 9
Gibraltar's gun shield may have narrowly avoided a nerf in the latest patch, but next season he's finally getting hit with one. Bleedthrough damage will be coming to the shield, so this legend will no longer be able to tank sniper and shotgun hits like it's nothing.
Lifeline's passive is getting hit with a nerf, but her ultimate is getting buffed. Her passive, which allows her to revive teammates while still fighting is definitely very irritating, but in Season 9, it will be less so. That said, it's not all doom and gloom for Lifeline, as her ultimate is getting a buff. What these buffs and nerfs turn out to be, we don't know yet, but Respawn will likely provide specifics later.
Horizon was released in Season 7 in a very strong state, and has continued to shrug off previous nerfs to remain in a strong state. But now, Respawn will apparently hit her with a big nerf in Season 9. One big thing reason she's so good is her tactical ability Gravity Lift, which easily gives her and her team a height advantage. Specifics aren't known yet, but it's a good bet the nerf will focus on that ability of hers.
Loba's bracelet is buffed next season. We're unsure how it will work, but it's been a long time coming for Loba fans. Loba is a great looter but her abilities on the fields just don't translate well in battle. her upcoming buff may finally make her a viable, competent legends in the endgame of matches.
