Apex Legends players have picked up on a change with Horizon's Gravity Lift, and it seems it might have been silently nerfed.

Secret Legend nerfs isn't anything new, but it can leave a lot of players feeling confused when their go-to character doesn't work the same way it used to. Horizon seems to be the latest Legend affected by some sneaky nerfs, after players found that her Gravity Lift wasn't as strong as it used to be.

Apex pro HisWattson posted about the changes to Twitter, saying "Horizon is dead."

Previously, Horizon faced no penalty to accuracy when using her Gravity Lift Tactical with shots hitting the same in the air as they would on the ground.

But, in HisWattson's clip, bullets appeared to be far less accurate in the air following the Spellbound Collection Event. Other Legends receive penalties when using their abilities, such as Octane when using his Ultimate. But Horizon was seemingly exempt from such penalties, until now.

Respawn have yet to confirm if this nerf to Horizon was intentional or not, given that it wasn't listed in the patch notes for the event update.

The Apex Legends Spellbound Collection Event spawned other issues for players, with some suffering major server issues in the wake of the update.
