What Is The Apex Legends Ranked Split?
At the halfway point of each ranked season, Apex Legends‘ ranked mode is ‘split’. What exactly does this mean? Well, it means your rank will be demoted so you can almost start fresh again. Of course, there will be rewards based on how high your rank is during the split.
Split 1 began at the beginning of Season 9: Legacy, and now later today (June 15) players will enter into Split 2. If you’re an avid fan of ranked mode in Apex Legends, you can expect your rank to have dropped by 1.5 tiers.
You can check out all of the Ranked Tiers below to see where your rank will drop to after the split:
- Bronze (Base Rank)
- Silver (1,200 RP)
- Gold (2,800 RP)
- Platinum (4,800 RP)
- Diamond (7,200 RP)
- Master (10,000 RP)
- Apex Predator (Top 750 Players)
Players’ rank being reset isn’t the only thing that occurs in the split, players will now get to play on a new map for the second half of the season. Previously, Split 1 featured World’s Edge as the featured Ranked map. But that’s all about to change in the new split.
