What is new in Apex 1.43 (Apex Season 6 update)?

New Legend – Rampart

Apex Season 6 update added a new Legend (Rampart). She is an expert modder who made her name in underground fight clubs, who talks big and has the ballistics to back it up.

Her real name is Ramya Parekh and her tactical ability is Amped Cover and it allows her to build a crouch-cover wall, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amps outgoing shots.

Rampart’s abilities

  • Tactical: Amped Cover – Build a crouch-cover wall which deploys full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and Amps outgoing shots

  • Passive: Modded Loader – Increased Magazine/Heat capacity and faster reloads/recharge when using LMGs and the Minigun.
  • Ultimate: Sheila – Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload time.

New Apex Weapon: BOLT Gun

Take on the battle with this powerful energy SMG.

New Map Update

Train has been stopped

The train is now stopped and split up around the map. Its various pathways have been cluttered with some loot and train cars. This is hoped to make some of those previously open locations now have the cover and equipment necessary to encourage gunfights and rotations.

Launch Site

The Launch Site features a gargantuan rocketship overlooking four large control rooms with tons of loot and catwalks.

Countdown replaces Drill Site

The Countdown is a fortress, control rooms, and filled with loots. Countdown features a giant pit in the middle that can be opened up to access higher-tier loot.

Staging

Staging is an area located to the east of Harvester and it brings loot at a lower vantage point, encouraging interesting, mobile fights that take advantage of the stopped train cars for cover.

Survey Camp & Skyhook Cut Through

A new tunnel added to the cliff between Survey Camp and Skyhook. There are loot and miscellaneous cover in there.

Lava Fissure Geyser

A new one geyser has been added to the south of Lava Fissure. This will help teams out by “making crossing the deep sulfur river a bit easier.”

Apex Legends Crafting

Though, perhaps the most interesting piece of information comes in the form of our first look at Crafting. In the trailer, the legends approach an orange structure and collect materials by interacting with it.

Bug Fixes in Apex Update 1.43

Pathfinder:

  • Context: Giving all Recon legends access to survey beacons makes Pathfinder less unique, and obviously we don’t love that. For now, we’re giving our friendly robot a small buff to his ultimate cooldown when he uses a survey beacon, but in the future we will take another look at Pathfinder to see what else we could do to make him feel more unique.
  • Passive: Each time Pathfinder scans a survey beacon, the total cooldown of Zipline Gun is reduced.
  • Numbers: Zipline Gun cooldown reduced by 10s each time Pathfinder scans a beacon. Up to 6 rings per game means the total cooldown of Zipline Gun can go from 120s to 60s.

Bloodhound:

  • Context: Bloodhound fulfills a very clear role in Apex Legends: they’re the information gatherer and tracker, but currently their performance leaves a lot to be desired. In this patch, we wanted to double down on their ultimate being their big moment of becoming a god-like tracker. Bloodhound already gives up some information to the enemy when they scan or use the ultimate (it makes a noticeable sound), so we think there is room for a lot more power during the ultimate.
  • Beast of the Hunt: Now gains even more duration when Bloodhound scores a knockdown or kill with the ultimate about to run out.
  • Eye of the Allfather: During Beast of the Hunt, Eye of the Allfather now comes out twice as fast and has a much shorter cooldown.
  • Numbers:
    • Beast of the Hunt duration extension 5s → [5s – 15s] based on remaining duration
    • Eye of the Allfather CD during Beast of the Hunt: 25s → 6s
    • Eye of the Allfather total use time during Beast of the Hunt: 1.8s → 0.9s

Crypto:

  • Context: Crypto is a particularly interesting recon character: the amount of information he can gather for his team with the drone is very high, but the fact that he has to switch over to his drone leaves him vulnerable and often at a great distance from his team. Because he has no abilities without his drone, we figure there’s room for even more power when he’s in his drone.
  • Surveillance drone: 
    • Crypto can now activate respawn and survey beacons from his drone. Doing so is instant instead of requiring a prolonged use.
    • Made the surveillance drone slightly more consistent to hit but also doubled its hitpoints.
  • Drone EMP:
    • EMP will now slow teammates caught in the blast, even if they had no shields. This means that players who have used Revenant’s Death Totem will also be slowed.
  • Numbers:
    • Surveillance Drone 30HP → 60HP
    • Surveillance Drone hitbox size: cube of edge length 16 → cube of edge length 24

OTHER LEGENDS:

Revenant:

  • Context: We’re happy to see that dropping the range restriction on Death Totem brought a lot more Revenants into play, but we’ve been watching a particularly frustrating combo play out in professional level play involving a squad of Revenant, Wraith, and Crypto, where using the three ultimates together resulted in two back to back runs at the enemy team that they could do very little about. We’ve attacked part of that in the Crypto EMP change, but here’s the other part aimed at making this play less overwhelming.
  • Death Totem:
    • For 2s after being recalled by the Death Totem, players cannot use Wraith’s Dimensional Rift.

Octane:

  • Stim: Can now use Stim while healing, but stim will not remove the slow you incur from healing.

Loba:

  • Context: While Loba was initially very popular, she’s been struggling to keep up more recently, so we’re tossing her a little buff. If you’re curious why we’ve chosen to buff her ultimate rather than her tactical: we’re seeing that she has decent combat success but that teams with her on them don’t win as much as, say, teams with Lifeline or Wattson. This suggests to us that her out of combat utility (that is to say, how she funnels loot to her team) isn’t doing enough.
  • Black Market:
    • Lowered cooldown from 3min to 90s

Gibraltar:

  • Defensive Bombardment:
    • Increased cooldown from 3 minutes to 4.5 minutes

Bangalore:

  • Rolling Thunder:
    • Decreased cooldown from 4.5 minutes to 3 minutes

Wattson:

  • Interception Pylon
    • Trophy system will now shoot down Caustic barrels in flight if they would have landed inside the range of the trophy.

Spitfire

Havoc

  • Updated Havoc with a new recoil pattern
    Designer Note: The Havoc’s existing recoil pattern had constant horizontal movement. This means it would either be too difficult to control if there was too much recoil, or far too easy to control if there was too little recoil. Updating to a new pattern which is more consistent in style with existing recoil patterns.

Mozambique

  • Increased clip size from 3 to 4.

P2020

  • Alterations were made to The Ring to prevent late zones from centering on unplayable terrain and reduce the predictability of the zone’s “pull.”
