Apex Legends has managed to gather a strong base, and the successful battle royale received a new patch this week. Read below to learn more about the changes brought by Apex Legends 1.1.1.
Apex Legends 1.1.1 comes with new content and other improvements
Many players complained that more important characters like Gibraltar, Pathfinder, and Caustic are too easy to kill due to their larger hitboxes. In the case of Pathfinder, the issue was solved by altering the size of the hitboxes. The same change didn’t seem to work in the case of Caustic and Gibraltar, and the team decided a different strategy is needed to make them more resilient. The passive will now include a new perk named Fortified, which reduces the amount of damage received by the characters by 10%.
A few smaller buffs were also added. The damage caused by Caustic’s gas has been increased to 4 per tick while the reach of the Ultimate Throw went from 28 meters to 33. Gibraltar’s gun shield received a 50% HP buff, from 50 to 75.
Weapon changes in Apex Legends 1.1.1
The patch notes mention that the team wants to improve the experience of long-range gameplay. Sniper weapons will receive a buff in the form of a smaller leg shot damage reductions. To facilitate shooting weapon sway and DMR will be adjusted accordingly.
Other weapons will be changed. The Spitfire will be nerfed by two points, but it remains quite useful. All Wingman versions will feature a smaller magazine while the Longbow DMR and Havoc receive significant base magazine size and fire rate improvements.
The speed at which the speed travels has been increased to reduce waiting time for players who like to join the fight at a later time. A few interface bugs were removed with Apex Legends 1.1.1.
The game arrived as a breath of fresh air in a segment ruled by veterans like PUBG and Fortnite. While the later remains the most prestigious battle royale title in the world Apex Legends is quite famous, and new players join the fray each day. The game is available for free on Origin.
