Apex Legends Lost Treasure Update Now Live, Read Patch Notes Here

Apex Legends EA

Apex Legends' next big update is now live. The update is 5.76GB in size and includes the previously announced Lost Treasure Event. This event brings back Shotgun and Sniper only mode, but with a twist. All other armor except Evo shields are removed. Every single Respawn Beacon is also removed and a new mobile Respawn beacon is added to everyone’s inventory.

The Kings Canyon map has also been tweaked (again). Crypto’s Map Room is added to the map, and using it will reveal the position of every other squad in the game. Our boy Mirage is also finally getting his Heirloom. It’s titled Mirage’s Trophy and as the name suggests, it is a trophy of himself.

That’s not all. The update also bought many buffs and nerfs for several Legends. Some tweaks to weapons and ziplines have also been made. You can read all about them below.



  • Passive
    • Combat Revive now replaces Combat Medic.
      • Deploy D.O.C to revive teammates. D.O.C. will deploy a shield and revive Lifeline’s teammate, leaving Lifeline free to defend or revive someone else.
      • This fully replaces Lifeline’s old passive, including Fast Heal
  • Tactical
    • Lifeline’s Tactical cooldown is now 45 seconds (was 60 seconds).
  • Ultimate
    • Lifeline’s Care Package now contains more items
      • Care Package will contain 3x more small healing items, when it decides to spawn small healing items
      • Care Package will contain 2x more attachments, when it decides to spawn attachments


  • Tactical
    • Upon activation, Stim will remove movement impairing effects.
    • Stim sprinting speed is increased by 10%
  • Ultimate
    • Players can now double jump in mid-air after using Octane’s Launch Pad
    • Players can change direction easily from the double jump.


  • Tactical
    • Will now cancel:
      • Pathfinder mid-grapple
      • Wraith mid-Phase Walk attempt (before Phase Walk activates)
    • Will now prevent:
      • Mirage cloaked revive
      • Mirage decoy control activation
      • Lifeline combat revive
  • Ultimate
    • Range removed on Death Totem


  • Tactical
    • Deploying Hack (Crypto’s Drone) now takes 1.5 seconds (from 2.5 seconds)
  • Ultimate
    • EMP will now disable Wattson’s Pylons.


  • Tactical
    • Burglar’s Best Friend will no longer be intercepted by Watton's Interception Pylon.
  • Ultimate
    • Black Market Boutique (ultimate) will now only pick up 1 stack of ammo (rather than 1 stack + the amount that was required to fill whatever partial stack you had in your inventory).
    • Ultimate Accelerants now give 20% ult charge (up from 17.5%).


  • Tactical
    • You can now hold the tactical button, and release to auto-control decoys
    • Decoys will now say lines when shot
  • Passive
    • When cloaked, Mirage’s holo emitters will be visible to players that are less than 5 meters away
  • Skydive
    • Will now create decoys for the entire squad when skydiving when still diving with your squad.


  • Fast Heal granted inside the Dome Shield, slowed down: 25% faster -> 15% faster


  • Enemies can cancel Caustic’s barrel by shooting it before it is fully inflated.


The intent of these changes is to create openings where enemies can breach Wattson positions. It is still possible for Wattson players to hold a position with a trophy indefinitely, but that should come at the cost of using Ultimate Accelerants.

  • Wattson’s Pylons now last for 90 seconds
  • Wattson can now have up to three pylons out at a time
  • Wattson can stack two Ultimate accelerants per inventory slot


Increasing Wraith’s tactical cooldown has proven to be ineffective at curbing her exceedingly high win rate and kill rate. These changes are meant to disincentivize Wraith players from using Phase Walk as a “get out of jail free” card, and move it into more of a repositioning and scouting ability.

  • Phase Walk
    • Phase Walk now takes 1.25 seconds to enable (was 0.4 seconds). During this time, Wraith will receive a 20% move slow
      • This does not affect Phase Walk while placing a Phase Portal
    • While in Phase Walk, Wraith now gets a 30% move speed boost
    • While in Phase Walk, Wraith can now see other players while in the Void.
    • Phase Walk now lasts 4 seconds (from 3 seconds)
    • Phase walk cooldown is now down to 25 (from 35 seconds)
  • Phase Tunnel
    • Decreased distance for portal placement by 25%.



  • A cooldown will be applied to re-grabbing ziplines without touching the ground
  • The cooldown will increase with each time a player disconnects and re-grabs the zipline
  • The cooldown will reset when the player touches the ground


  • Greatly increased horizontal recoil in the initial shots of a burst
  • Decreased magazine size from 32 to 28.


  • Rechamber time 1.75 -> 1.6
  • Energize duration 90 -> 120


  • Teammates can now ping a friendly Caustic Trap.
  • New health bar for when users are in Revenant’s Shadow form.

Map rotation times are now even between Kings Canyon and World’s Edge
