Fuse will unleash mayhem in Apex Legends

How Season 8 could change the meta

The destruction of King’s Canyon is confirmed, and only time will tell how the map will be reshaped. Beyond that, a developer, through responses on Reddit threads, has revealed changes that will be added to address the weakest links in the roster. It is natural that a patch as massive as this will bring some major game balancing changes that are vital to keeping the meta fresh.

As per those responses, Octane is going to see some much-needed changes to his jump pad. Players who step on it will travel farther and higher in an arc while crouch walking to the jump pad will propel you to normal height, but you will cover more ground.

Rampart will now be able to cover more angles with her turret that was otherwise restricted. Loba could receive a buff that will allow her ultimate ability to pick up teammates’ banners and open care packages. Nerfs coming to Gibraltar and Horizon and changes to Caustic will allow you to differentiate between friendly and enemy gas and barrels.

The developer has also stated that Wattson is going to be tweaked due to her low pick rate. She is already a powerful legend, but gameplay-wise she needs some tinkering. This is exactly what the developers are looking to do without buffing her into a power creep.
