Apex Legends Season 2: Battle Charge Gets New Details on 10th Legend Wattson, Release Date, New Weapon and Gameplay
EA Play, revealed new gameplay and info for the upcoming Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pack including a brand new weapon and the 10th Legend.
EA Play finally revealed new gameplay footage and information on the Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass, which they have been teasing on their official site for quite some time now:
Season 2 will be called Battle Charge and will release on July 2nd. Based on community feedback there will be plenty of new meta balances including bringing up weaker weapons. The game will also be challenge-based now with daily challenges that stack, making leveling easier.
One of the biggest reveals is a new weapon called the L-STAR. It’s a weapon pulled right from Titanfall 2 and is Gold Weapon rank. The L-STAR is very powerful which is why it’s restricted to care packages. In addition, the weapon doesn’t use ammo on the ground so players must use the limited ammo that comes with it.
In addition, this energy machine gun hits hard with hefty projectiles that pack a serious punch, but this power comes with a price — sustained fire causes the L-STAR to overheat and briefly stop working
Ranked mode has also been revealed, and will feature six tiers. Players will progress from Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and top rank of Apex Predator.
And finally the 10th Legend, Natalie “Wattson” Paquette, has been officially revealed for the game. She’s an engineer and her and her father invented the Arena. This of course means she grew up in this environment around the other Legends. It seems a group called the “Syndicate” is involved with the Arena. Wattson is meant for support, best for players who adapt to the map and work well with their teammates up.
Ahead of EA Play, EA and Respawn revealed detailed on the “The Legendary Hunt” event, with Legendary Hunt challenges offering skins as rewards. The event will be on now through June 18th.
Recently both Respawn and EA have been cracking down on cheaters and bad teammates (such as those who join matches but don’t participate). Apex Legends will also be coming to mobile and is currently out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
