October 18 Update

Things are about to be more competitive in the upcoming major patch for Apex Legends Mobile. That’s because the game will get a fundamental change that can potentially shake things up in Ranked games.

More specifically, Respawn Entertainment will allow Legend Perks in Ranked Season 3 and beyond. For those who are new to Apex Legends Mobile, each Legend in the game has certain perks that enhance parts of their kit. The new Legend Ash, for example, has the “Enduring Trap” perk that makes her Arc Snare last longer after being thrown out.

It would be interesting to see how Legend Perks can affect Ranked games, but it is something that competitive players might really love.
