Here is everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Evolution collection event.

The Apex Legends Evolution collection event became available earlier today, Sept. 14. A surprising amount of content was included in the 4.5 gigabyte update including new cosmetics, a town takeover, an heirloom and a few balance changes.

Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event: Everything You Need to Know

Rampart Town Takeover

Rampart's town takeover adds her giant tank/custom weapons shop Big Maude to World's Edge. Custom modded paintball weapons are available from vending machines inside the shop in exchange for crafting materials. There is also a paintball course outside the shop for players to fight in.

Rampart Arenas Takeover

Rampart also has the honor of hosting the first Arenas takeover since the mode's addition in Season 9. Rampart will be offering rotating deals on select weapons. Each deal will be active for the match and lower tiers of these modded weapons will not be available for purchase.

Cosmetics

The most exciting cosmetic being released with the Evolution collection event is Rampart's heirloom. The Problem Solver is a giant wrench complete with a hidden compartment full of chewing gum. Several other legends have futuristic themed cosmetics including Fuse, Wraith, Octane, Pathfinder, Lifeline and Bangalore.

Quality of Life and Balance Changes

The largest balance update of the event also concerns Rampart. Sheila, Rampart's ultimate ability, can now be carried around and fired by Rampart on the move. Only Rampart can use Sheila while walking and she will have a reduced ammo count while in this mode.

The Bocek is receiving a buff to the amount of arrows it can carry per stack and how fast it can be fired at full power. Shatter caps are receiving a damage buff on both the Bocek and the 30-30 Repeater. The L-Star is being nerfed this patch after recent buffs made the gun a bit too strong. It will have a longer cool-off time if the weapon is overheated and the weapon also overheats in fewer shots.

The out-of-bounds timer will be cut in half from 30 seconds down to 15. Evo Shields now show their health even in death boxes.
