Apex Legends Season 13 Buffs & Nerfs

As usual, Apex Legends developers, Respawn Entertainment, like to use seasonal updates not only to bring new content but also to introduce some major balance changes. Unfortunately, it has been confirmed that there will be no changes for Lifeline. Some fans of her fear that she might be outperformed by Newcastle and thus pushed out from the meta. Rampart, who is one of the least played legends in the current meta, is getting her Mobile Minigun “Sheila” buffed. It now charges 30% faster (1.75 seconds > 1.25 seconds). When it comes to weapons, the Kraber is getting nerfed to the delight of many pro players. These are, of course, just some highlights. Check out the full Apex Legends Season 13 patch notes:
