With an exceptional skill set and passive heartbeat sensor, some players complained that Seer is a little too good. According to players, Seer gives that a lot of unnecessary advantage in combats and hampers the whole fun part of the game. It looks like Respawn agrees with all the complaints.

In a Reddit AMA, Travis Nordin (software engineer) told all the participants that ”Seer has bought a lot of gameplay into the game which has driven a lot of discussion with players, which is great to see. With that being said is probably a bit too strong at the moment and will receive some balance updates in an upcoming patch.”

When he was asked about when this balance update will hit the game. He said that it will be much sooner than the mid-season update. He also added that there will be no fundamental changes in the ability yet. However, the flash effect of Seer’s most basic ability will be obliterated to make the game a little more challenging. The ability to understand friendly gestures from the opponents is pretty important in the over-gameplay of Apex Legends.
