Apex Legends Season 16 Revelry goes live tomorrow and is adding some highly-demanded features into the game, including TDM, a Mixtape playlist, and much more. We have covered all of it in great detail in our previous article. But that’s not all as Season 16 is bringing crucial updates to Firing Range along with several QoL features.

The Orientation Match is also added to the game, only available to new players and should help them learn the game better. Existing players can play the said match only if they queue with new players.

Firing Range Update
  • Added options to customize your firing range experience
  • Dummies can now strafe left and right! You control how fast they move, whether they should crouch, and their shield level.
  • Dynamic stats appear any time you deal damage, letting you track your performance.
  • Hit indicators help you keep track of spray patterns.
  • Unlimited ammo means no more trips back to the gun racks to reload.
  • This is the first of several rounds of updates to the firing range, so we will keep an eye on how the community uses the new tools.
Quality of Life
  • Added map rotation previews to the game mode selector in the lobby.
  • Players can now be any team in Gun Run.
  • Increased the odds of becoming Team Nessie in Gun Run.
