The Apex Legends Lost Treasures Collection Event is the first of its kind in Season 5, and it has also served as an opportunity for Respawn to roll out a major balancing patch. In addition to changes to a variety of different Legends, this patch also includes buffs, debuffs, and general tweaks to several weapons and items of loot.
Apex Legends Lost Treasures Patch – Weapons & Loot
All told, the Apex Legends Lost Treasures patch does focus more on Legends than it does on equipment. However, that’s not to say that there aren’t any changes at all. Two of the weapons in Apex Legends have been altered now that the patch has gone live; the HAVOC Rifle and the Sentinel. In the case of the former, the HAVOC’s horizontal recoil has been substantially increased for the initial shots of a burst. Moreover, the gun’s magazine has gone down from 32 to 28 rounds.
The Sentinel, on the other hand, has had a different set of changes. Its rechamber time has gone down from 1.75 seconds to 1.6. Meanwhile, its energize duration has gone up, from 90 to 120. Alongside these two weapons, Ziplines in general have had several changes in the Lost Treasures patch. Importantly, the game will now apply a cooldown to re-grabbing Ziplines without touching the ground. Every time a player disconnects from a Zipline and re-grabs it, this cooldown increases. It will only reset once a player touches the ground.
Finally, the patch does also feature a trio of quality-of-life updates. The first of these is that players can now ping a friendly Caustic trap. The second is the addition of a new health bar for when players enter Revenant’s Shadow form. Finally, the map rotation times between King’s Canyon and World’s Edge have been balanced and should now be even. All of these changes should be live in-game following the roll-out of the Apex Legends Lost Treasures patch yesterday.
