Apex Legends EA

Escape is the title of the 11th season of the hit battle royale game Apex Legends. The new season brings the usual stuff like a new legend, a new map, and a new weapon. It also brings balancing changes on several weapons.

A new hop-up called Dual Shell is introduced to the game. It doubles each round in two guns, namely, Mastiff and 30-30 Repeater. Triple-Take is not a Supply Drop weapon anymore. It has been replaced by G7 Scout, which comes automatically equipped with Double-Tap Trigger. From now on, Triple-Take will spawn on the ground just like the rest of the weapons.

The fire rate of Eva-8 is reduced by 0.1 seconds, and Longbow damage is reduced to 55. We have mentioned other important changes below.
