Apex Legends Season 2 is set to launch on July 2nd.
Season 2 for EA’s Battle Royale success story Apex Legends is coming on July 2nd and we’re treated to news about the upcoming content including the next Legend and a returning gun from the mainline Titanfall series.
Legend 10: Wattson enters the arena
Here are her abilities:
- Passive: Immediately use an accelerant to get access to her ultimate.
- Tactical: Wattson can create electric fences that damage enemies by placing up to 12 nodes. Player has free rein to place them however they want. Fences don’t hurt teammates. Enemies who cross the fence will be pinged so that your squad knows where they’ll be.
- Ultimate: Wattson’s ultimate is called the Interception Pylon. It shoots down projectiles and charges the squad’s shields as well as Watson’s tactical, allowing her to build electric fence fortresses quickly.
L-STAR confirmed as a Care Package weapon
The energy weapon from Titanfall is returning to us in Apex as a Care Package-exclusive weapon with the ability to knock open doors and runs on limited ammunition. It is a gold rarity weapon sporting high rate of fire and respectable range.
Ranked queue coming in Season 2
Ranked 1.0 debuts in Season 2 and will allow players to compete in tiers of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Apex Predator similar to MOBA games. Exclusive cosmetics and other rewards will be available at specific tiers.
Other changes announced
We’ve also learned that map changes are coming to King’s Canyon and buffs for the Mozambique shotgun pistol are coming but those details were scarce as Executive Producer Drew McCoy didn’t go into full detail at the EA Play event. We’ll be keeping tabs on the update and providing full details in the leadup to July 2nd.
