Apex Legends Season 12 has been announced, along with a Caustic nerf and many people aren't happy. At the 3:29 mark, Nick shares his thoughts.
Nicholas 'Nickmercs' Kolcheff streamed on Twitch with his commentary on Apex Legends Season 12 changes. Nickmers is a streamer and co-owner of the FaZe Clan.
Nickmercs Doesnt Like Season 12 Caustic Nerfs
Nickmers commented on the nerf, "Thats not a nerf, that's a delete. They're just deleting the character." He laughed on the nerf expressing that Caustic players will have a hard time in Season 12 and that he personally doesn't play Caustic himself.
In Season 12, players will be able to destroy Caustic's traps once they've been triggered. Caustic's nerf will bring down Caustic's job at defense and almost make his traps ineffective.
Following Caustic's nerf, Crypto will be buffed and his drone will work remotely, or autonomously, while the player can still move around as Crypto. This change to Crypto will hopefully bring more attention to him as he isn't a popular legend.
It seems like Caustic won't be as popular anymore with his nerf, but it gives a chance for other legends like Crypto, and new legend Mad Maggie, a turn for the spotlight.
Apex Legends Season 12 goes live on Feb. 8.
