One of the biggest changes in Apex Legends Season 6: Boosted was converting all armor to Evo Shields. Respawn Entertainment has been tinkering with the game-changing concept throughout the season, and another quality-of- life improvement is on the way.

Respawn Entertainment has already made one change to Evo Shields after the big update to start Season 6. Evo Shields, to start Season 6, all had one less bar of health than they had had previously. Last week, this was reverted to pre-Season 6 values.

As Evo Shields became commonplace, however, players began hankering for another quality-of-life improvement. As of now, you can't see how close an Evo Shield is to levelling up when you attempt to loot it from a Death Box. The only way is to actually equip it. Thus, many players have accidentally swapped their shield for one that is further from leveling up.

Reddit user u/3KeyReasons posted a visually representative suggestion to the Apex Legends subreddit, displaying a proposal for how Evo Shields should appear in Death Boxes. This minor change would provide players a way of making sure they don't swap their Evo Shield for a lesser one.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein confirms players can expect to see Evo level in Death Boxes soon.

Developer Daniel Klein responded, writing "yup! We're working on something like this. No timeline, but hoping to ship it soon". It appears that this rework might be part of the upcoming collection event update.

Stay tuned for updates regarding Apex's upcoming collection event, including new skins.
