A drop-only gun, a new legend, and ranked mode. I expected a bit more.

At least the Battle Pass changes sound really good.

Regarding Watson, I feel like she’s going to be another situational character, like Caustic, that is really good early game, but falls have pretty hard towards the end game depending on the circle.
Her ultimate looks really cool though.

her electric fence ability kind of reminds me of Symmetra in Overwatch, how you have to think of the 3D space in a different way than with the other characters

very excited to play her

Whose excited to have to push the last squad hiding in a building with that ultimate out which basically means you die? I am!

I feel like there's still some more to learn considering there's an unexplained equipment slot and "three new content categories" for the next battlepass.

Not bad. Curious how Ranked Mode works.

So much for posters thinking they couldn’t implement ranked mode in battle royale lol.

Overall it was a good presentation. The gun being care package only and no real “new mode” is pretty disappointing. I know there adding ranked but that’s still going to be the same game just more intense. Don’t get me wrong that sounds dope as hell and I’ve always wanted a ranked mode in BR’s, but we need some variety. Where’s a blitz mode or shotguns only? Just some stupid modes you can play for fun with buddies?

Cosmetics look so much better though and that’s good. Battlepass looks solid allready and I love that level 100 skin. Just wish for some more variety in this game becuase it’s getting a wee bit stale.

What we know now, also based on leaks, is that you will be able to ride dragon like creatures next season. If they attack or only transport you, no idea, but that is set.

The big one, if I would guess, could be just a map event that will get either automatically triggered or manually, something quick and fast or a change to the end game in general.

Wattson seems really cool, so that's good. The L-Star is underwhelming since we already knew it's a care-package weapon. I guess we've got at minimum four more months until we get a new real gun? They couldn't talk about the new hopups or the map changes, so that sucked. And ranked mode gets an "eh, whatever" from me; I couldn't care less about it and probably won't touch it until the people I regularly party up with decide they are only going to play it.

Pretty 'meh' half hour though. We got to see Wattson and the L-Star, and those were big deals. They showed like four new skins. And the announcement of ranked mode. We already knew about everything but ranked mode though, so they really should have had more info about new gear and map changes ready.

Not gonna lie. Was still hoping for a solo. But I guess with ranked we should be pairing up with our actual skill and maybe the complaining about randoms will be mitigated.

Maybe. Lol.

The original map leak from 2018 had the dinosaurs from the surrounding water a lot closer to the playable map. I assume they're what we saw in the teaser and will interact with the map in some way.

Pretty satisfied with what they said and more to come. Definitely interested in the two new hop-ups. Wonder if they meant attachments or hop-ups, though.

Ranked should be fun, and Wattson looks dope. Skins are looking much better too.

Heading in the right direction for sure.

Wattson seems absurd on paper. There are so many scenarios where late game circles are near buildings where she can wall off all the entrances,which seems really hard to fight. In the open there’s more counter play, but damn.

Lstar being a care package weapon is fine but does expose the unfortunate issue with the slow drip feed of content. It feels underwhelming for that to be the big new gun when you’re not going to see it much, but I do think it’s going to be a strong pick up since the range is all around good.

Ingame 3D model of Wattson. I love how they made a subtle texture looking like an ancient electricity scar on her left eye.

I suppose the question is if they can be destroyed like Caustic's gas traps. I assume so, although hiding them inside doorways does seem like they could be a pain.

yeah, I’m assuming you can shoot the rods themself. But yeah, then it was often shown blocking a doorway where it wouldn’t be easy.

That + her ult in the corner somewhere stopping grenades sounds nuts. That feeds into and makes her ult really hard to reach in a lot of situations and also protects the rods. Really curious to see how you get around that.

Also this seems like relevant information to share:




I love how their seasons look like... Actual goddamn seasons. And not "climate change seasons on steroids" like on other games where people have new content every 3 seconds. I don't mind this slower pace, to be honest. I want the devs to be happy and well-fed. They deserve it.

Hmm, yeah I forgot about the ult part of it. I'm guessing it would need line of sight to destroy a grenade. Thinking of at least a few buildings where one ult would cover both entry ways. She can have three of them out.

It all seems pretty involved on paper. I don't mind adding a layer of tactics, but not if it can be cheesed. We'll have to see in practice, I guess.

Can you imagine landing Bunker now? lol

Apparently that's Wattson's gun right there.




The Alternator's The Galvanizer legendary skin.


I enjoy it when they leave clues here and there that are fun to find or to discover in hindsight.

This is what was data mined, I wonder what that new equipment will be.
  • Legendary (lvl 4) shotgun bolt with bonus passive: "Maximum upgrade to fire rate. 15% movement speed increase."
  • Legendary (lvl 4) sniper stock with bonus passive: "Fast handling & large aim drift reduction. Deals up to 120% damage the further away the target is."
  • New equipment (probably).
  • Flyers, which will be contains loot.
  • Magazine attachment for energy weapon.

I’m feeling good about everything. I think Wattson will add a really good defensive angle to the meta for sure even if Pathfinder and Octane can in the key jump over her fences. Also looking forward to ranked mode.

I think the problem lies less with the massive recoil, and more with the fact I can't aim for shit with it, and can sometimes miss up to 6 shots out of 8. Which on a Kraber with limited ammunitions is: HELLA RUBBISH!
Maybe it's the animations, but it feels big and slow. Slow to equip, slow to aim, slow to reload. So against a juking enemy, you're not hitting them. But someone who's crouched or also sniping? There's a chance.

I won a game with the Kraber but I had a ton of help from my teammates who drew fire so I could take my time and hit them.

Whenever I see video streams about people using the Kraber, they're capable of killing several people running 150m away with one magazine. When I have a Kraber, I can waste 2/3 magazines on a dude looting a deathbox/care package and miss 3/4 of it. I just think I plain suck at it honestly, it's not my weapon.

Which sucks because whenever I happen to be solo because teammates disconnected, I often try to lay low, get the positional advantage by getting inside the ring, camp there and try my best to win with sniper shots. But the 2 or 3 times I happened to try with the Kraber, I failed miserably. I was against full team each time, but that's beside the point: I was barely even hitting them anyway. I was just idiotically signaling up my position as a freebie, and that sucks.

Ranked mode can’t come soon enough. I don’t think I need to play with great players, but I’m tired of matching up with suicidal people that refuse to revive/respawn or stick together. Had a bunch of great matches today but definitely some very frustrating back-to-back stinkers.

It still blows my mind that people still play with randoms instead of just searching literally 2 minutes for guys to play. You don't need a ranked mode to fix your partners. 🙄

I watched without Era and I am pleased I did.

I was aware of most of what was coming, it had been leaked of course, but it got me excited. Maybe watching with my sister who is big into Apex helped keep our hype up.

L-Star looks great and nice to have something different to hit those care packages for.

Hint at a Mozambique hop-up, curious what that could be. Maybe an automatic or lock on (smart pistol).

Skins look a lot better!

And the Battlepass linked to challenges not just grinding is great. Plus hitting max level guarantees enough crafting materials to make a legendary.

The Ranked mode I can see working similar to Titanfall, which I liked.

Wattson ult looks amazing and I really like the idea you can drop it and protect from Grenade spam and air strikes.

New items and new item slots (ammo belt?) and no doubt some other cheeky surprises.

And to top it off? Dinosaurs and shit.

I mostly play solo too, and it's been more than fine 90% of the time?
Most of the people I added on PSN since February are people I randomly met while playing the game, and enjoyed enough to feel like playing games with them again. There are always usually one or two Apex-playing friends connected to play with, but when there isn't? I'll just go back to solo queue, it's alright.

Searching where? Here? None of my friends play Apex so I’ve mostly just played solo.

On Xbox you have Looking for Groups, LFG, takes 2 minutes, natively Integrated, on PS4 you have groups, basically the same.
PC, forums, Facebook groups, communities, a thousand places. It's not that hard??
Someone needs one, description fits, join voice chat say hello, boom awesome rounds. I don't get these problems people still have.

Ok I guess i’ll check one of those communities on PS4 then, thanks. I’ve looked in those before and they seemed a bit dead.

Not sure why you’re surprised when you’re listing methods outside of the game itself.

Looking forward to ranked mode. L Star has been known to be care package drop only for forever. Rumor was the dinosaurs will be roaming the map in season 2. Still disappointed overall as we were lied to with them saying we would be getting new legends (PLURAL) every season and Watson and the L star were clearly delayed so they had something to offer for Season 2. All the new hires they have been doing won't contribute until Season 3 which is where I expect/hope solos and duos are coming and some big changes.
