Flyers in Apex Legends may be hinting at something monstrous for Season 2

Massive monsters may be coming soon to Apex Legends, as hinted by the addition of flying beasts to the King’s Canyon map.

The creatures, which were named Flyers by the community, have suddenly appeared in the team-based Battle Royale shooter. For now, the Flyers are peaceful and do not attack the players while they fight it out on the ground. They can be shot out of the sky, and when they die, they drop a deathbox with random but usually high-quality items. Players are not able to ride them, but Pathfinder can grapple on to the Flyers to hitch a ride.

The Flyers are also seen in the Season 2 trailer that was shown at EA Play, right before E3 2019. At the end of the trailer, the Flyers are shown soaring alongside Pathfinder and a huge eye, which belongs to an unknown creature that is much larger than the flying beasts that have started appearing in King’s Canyon.

Apex Legends Season 2 Live Reveal – EA PLAY 2019

The official Apex Legends account on Twitter also released a mysterious clip, possibly showing the massive creature at the end of the Season 2 trailer.

Likely related to the recent developments is the new placement of the Leviathan that has been wandering outside the map. The huge creature is now much closer to the Runoff section of the map, and has also turned to face inland.

Before Octane was added to Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment teased his arrival by placing jump pads across King’s Canyon. The appearance of Flyers in the game, therefore, is likely hinting at what to expect in Season 2, which kicks off on July 2. With the flying beasts linked to a massive creature, players might be facing something monstrous in a week’s time.

Fortnite features world-changing events in each season, and it appears that Apex Legends is ready to follow suit. One possible explanation for the entrance of monsters into King’s Canyon is that it will be the work of Crypto, the rumored next character after Wattson.

According to a collaborative deep-dive by Redditor FrozenFroh and Twitter user That1MiningGuy, Crypto may be the one who will hack into the King’s Canyon barrier to let the creatures in. Most of the other details about Crypto, however, remain under wraps for now.

Apex Legends’ newest character is a deadly sniper with an adorable bat pal
Vantage stands with her sniper rifle in Apex Legends.

Ahead of the start of Apex Legends Season 14: Hunted on August 9, EA and Respawn Entertainment went into more detail about the new Legend coming to the game at the start of the season. Her name is Vantage, and she's shaping up to be a deadly sniper with an adorable bat companion.
Vantage's backstory, which we got to see a bit of in July, consists of her growing up alone with her mother on the ice planet of Pagos. Her mother is secretly an escaped prisoner, and when Vantage almost dies exploring an abandoned ship, her mother has to turn herself in so she can get medical help for her daughter. Following this, Vantage enters the Apex Games in order to spread awareness about her mother's capture and eventually free her one day. 
Vantage's passive ability is called Spotter's Lens. With that, she can scan an enemy's Legend name, team size, range, and shield rarity from a distance. Her Tactical Ability is called Echo Relocation, and she can use it to send Echo to a spot on the map before jetpacking to it. Thankfully, Respawn developers confirmed that players can't kill Echo, so players don't have to worry about putting this cute companion in danger.Her Ultimate ability is called Sniper's Mark, and it's one of the most unique ones in the game. Vantage summons her custom sniper rifle with Sniper's Mark. It has five bullets, and if she hits an enemy with it, Vantage will highlight their squad for ten seconds. Damage from her sniper rifle and allies scales up with consecutive hits, and all the shots don't need to be made at once, so Vantage can be quite deadly if a player knows how to use her properly. Apex Legends is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. Season 14: Hunted begins August 9.

Apex Legends’ next season increases the level cap and removes self-revive
Relic is a new part of Kings Canyon's rework in Apex Legends Season 14.

Season 14 of Apex Legends is almost upon us, so Respawn Entertainment and EA revealed some of the major reworks coming to the game with when the Hunted season begins. Namely, the developers highlighted the redesigned Kings Canyon, increased level cap, and balance updates like the removal of self-revive.
In 2020, Loba blew up Skull Town in Kings Canyon. Now, the entire map is seeing a rework as part of Season 14 to improve the pacing and balance of matches on the map. Skull Town is now called Relic and is a bit bigger, the Cage was reworked to be a little lower and more vulnerable, Hillside's interiors were removed, and Broken Relay is now called Basin and got new buildings. Those, along with the other visual update Kings Canyon got, should make this old Apex Legends map feel brand new again.

Another big change is coming to account levels. Previously, there were 500 levels for players to work their way through. Starting with Season 14, players can work their way to level 500 three more times, technically increasing the level cap to 2000. This means that players will now be able to earn 544 Apex Packs and an Heirloom by leveling up. The start of Season 14 will also introduce some notable balance changes to Apex Legends, as is to be expected.
Some notable changes are that SMGs and pistols have a new laser sight attachment, the Wingman will now use sniper ammo, the Spitfire will now light ammo, the EVA-8 will see an increased fire rate, handling, and reload speed, and more. Most notably though, self-revive is getting removed. This is complicated by a change to Gold Equipment perks, including a new one for the Backpack called Deep Pockets that increases the number of medical supplies players can carry.Apex Legends is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. Season 14 begins on August 9.
