Apex Legends announces new legend Seer, more season 10 updates

EA and Respawn Entertainment have revealed more details about Apex Legends’ next season. Titled Emergence, the season features a variety of new and updated content. The biggest reveal was a Seer, a brand-new playable character who received his own trailer earlier today. While the new season doesn’t start until August 3, more details will be revealed at the EA Play event on July 22.

Apex Legends | Stories from the Outlands – “Metamorphosis”

Seer’s trailer featured his origin story, titled Metamorphosis. It tells the tale of a young boy who was said to be cursed. Based on the description on EA’s website, it appears as though Seer will be a recon hero, following in the footsteps of Valkyrie, last season’s new character.

It’s still unclear what his exact abilities are, but Respawn says he “spots opportunities that other Legends might miss, and seizes them in the most beautiful way possible.” The season will feature the usual battle pass, with new character and weapon skins alongside other unlockables.

Beyond the new character, the EA website highlights a new weapon, the Rampage LMG. Developed by in-game character Rampart, the Rampage LMG is said to use “a surprising source of firepower.” Based on the gun’s visual flair, it seems as though it may fall into the “light” category of weapons. No new light weapons have been released since the game’s launch.

The website also promises “major changes” to the World’s Edge map, which players were able to experience in its original version during season 9’s throwback event.

Finally, EA and Respawn are adding a ranked version of the game’s Arenas mode, which allows players to rank up similarly to the way they do in Apex‘s Battle Royale ranked mode. More information about all of these updates will be available at EA Play, so fans won’t have to wait long to see more.

The best legends in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

Taking elements from hero shooters, Apex Legends introduced a cast of unique characters that filled different roles, with their own set of skills to make your knowledge of the roster and team compositions just as much a factor as your ability to pop heads. Apex Legends Mobile starts off with a smaller starting roster of Legends than the main title, but it's just as complex a battle royale.

However, just like in any shooter where each character has their own suite of abilities and situational strengths and weaknesses, nothing can be perfectly balanced. Some Legends, intentionally or not, are just plain better than others. Looking at every Legend in Apex Legends Mobile so far, assuming you're playing in a squad, we've come up with what are the top-tier Legends in the game.

The best weapons in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

It may be the little brother to the console and PC versions, but Apex Legends Mobile is just as action packed and skill dependent as the best battle royale games out there. It retains all the core features that made the original so special in a genre that was getting flooded with copycats thanks to a smart blending of unique Legends, squad-focused matches, and the fast and fluid gameplay. While your chosen Legend is a key component to playing, the real battles almost always come down to who has the best gun and skill to use it.

Apex Legends Mobile doesn't hold back in terms of the weapons it offers. All of them will be familiar to fans who have poured hours into the original Apex Legends, but since this isn't just a straight up port of that game, not all guns will be as useful, or as bad, as they once were. Of course, balance changes will be a thing in Apex Legends Mobile, but for right now, these are the best weapons in the game you should seek out when looting.

Unlike other mobile versions of popular battle royale games, such as PUBG: Mobile and Fortnite, Apex Legends Mobile is not just a straight port of the original game onto your mobile device. This game was built from the ground up for smartphones. While it's similar to the base game, the differences here are substantial enough to make even the most experienced Legends stumble a bit when sliding into this portable battle royale experience.

You will need to get a handle on more than just the new controls when acclimating to Apex Legends Mobile, and if it's your first time getting a chance to experience this free-to-play, class-based take on the battle royale genre, then you have even more onboarding needed before you can call yourself a true Legend.
