With Apex Legends Season 8 beginning in Feb. 2021, we're going to take a look at the new Legend, Fuse, as well as new weapons and map changes players can expect following the update. The eighth season also marks the two year anniversary for Apex Legends from when it was originally released in 2019.
Besides the beginning of Season 8: Mayhem, we have to look at some of the additions to the game that we'll see. To start, we have the new Legend, which has been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment, Fuse. Fuse is an explosives expert with a "Blow-up-first ask-questions-later kinda guy." developers said.
While you can read all about Fuse here, there was an interesting press release stating "Obliterated Kings Canyon: Fuse's entrance has dramatically reshaped Kings Canyon." This gives way to some more information that we're going to be getting a different Kings Canyon than we've had previously. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten any strong leaks that suggest exactly what is going to be different.
Apex Legends Season 8: Mayhem, Fuse, New Weapons, and Map Changes
The next addition to Apex Legends Season 8 is new weapons. We've had a few weapon leaks already, including the 30-30 repeater, a Winchester-style weapon that is expected to be released. The description of the weapon says "Salvo's most popular weapon, this lever-action rifle picks apart the opposition with hard-hitting rounds." Since this gun is from Salvo, we know it's in line with Fuse, because he is the only player from Salvo in Apex.
Outside of all of those additions in Apex Legends Season 8, there will be over 100 items available in the Season 8 Battle Pass. You'll be able to get Legendary Skins, Apex Packs, Holo-sprays and more as you progress through Season 8. We'll wait to see what else is leaked prior to the launch on Feb 2.
