Season 15 of Battle Pass will come to an end, so make sure you get through as much of the battle pass as you can from now until Season 16's release.
Arenas have been removed from Apex Legends Season 16.
Arenas will be removed from Apex Legends when the Season 16 update goes live. Arenas was not up to the developers' expectations so they have decided it is time for the mode to be removed.
Have no fear, as the devs are filling the arenas' gap with TDM and a new Mixtape playlist.
Nemesis burst AR in Apex Legends Assault Rifle
Apex Legends Season 16 Patch adds a new weapon, the Nemesis burst AR.
This new AR is an energy weapon, and the creators wish it to outperform the R-301 and Flatline in the Assault rifle weapon class.
Legend classes have been remastered.
Apex Legends Season 16 will not include a new Legend, therefore the developers have decided to completely revamp the Legend classes.
In Season 16, five brand-new Legend classes will be released, all of which offer unique benefits.
