A new Apex Legends update version 1.24 is now rolling out on PS4, PC and Xbox One. According to the official Apex Legends 1.24 patch notes, the latest update increased the in-game level cap and also made some progression system changes. Additionally, Apex Legends patch 1.24 also includes stability improvements.
Previously, a major Season 3 update was released with a new legend – Crypto, a new map, new legend, weapons, a host of in-game cosmetics and bug fixes. Unfortunately, since the last patch, many players are still experiencing several issues when trying to play the game online. Today’s Apex Legends update 1.24 is expected to fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
The biggest change included in the update is the increase in the level cap. Since launch, the level cap for Apex Legends has been 100. The level cap is now increased up to 500. As a part of this change, there are now new level badges in Apex Legends–each one is earned every 10 levels between 110 and 500.
The XP required to reach level 100 has been reduced by 5%. There are new Apex Pack and Gun Charm awards associated with reaching certain level milestones. The process of going from level 1 to 500 will net you 199 Apex Packs and 36 new epic and legendary tier Gun Charms.
If you’re already level 100, you’ll unlock 14 Apex Packs and a new Gun Charm when you log on. Though certain Gun Charms are exclusively tied to progressing to certain levels, those that aren’t will be added to the in-game store rotation as items that can be bought with currency.
Apex Legends version 1.24 is now available for download on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
