An Apex Legends developer has confirmed Respawn Entertainment's plans to make changes to Arenas, particularly with regard to the prices of weapons in the game mode.

Arenas, a new game mode added to Apex Legends with the release of Season 9, is a 3-v-3, round-based deathmatch mode. Players buy weapons using in-game cash earned by killing enemies, and controlling the in-match economy is a big part of the game mode's strategy.

During an AMA on the Apex Legends subreddit to mark the release of Season 9, lead game designer Robert West responded to a question about whether changes to pricing were on the way.

"Yeah definitely," West wrote. "I'm working on a balance pass that I'd like to push live sooner rather than later. We'll continue balancing as we go and of course update with new seasons as new content comes out and along with our usual weapon and legend meta changes."

West provided neither a more precise date for the changes nor details of how weapon prices would fluctuate, but players can likely expect to see them in-game within the next few weeks.
