Apex Legends Dev Plans for Real-Time Damage Meter
A damage meter tracking how much damage a player has dealt in real-time may be on the way to Apex Legends, according to a developer at Respawn Entertainment.
Apex Legends design director Jason McCord told an inquisitive fan on Twitter that such a meter is "on a list" of features planned for the game. McCord didn't say when the feature would be added to the game, or how high priority it is, in his Friday tweet.
A real-time damage tracker would make it clearer to players in the middle of matches how close they are to completing challenges or securing badges tied to damage-dealing thresholds. As it stands now, players frequently hit these thresholds unexpectedly, or narrowly miss them, because of the lack of real-time updates.
The next major Apex Legends update, the start of Season 7, is slated for Nov. 10.
