Apex Legends has seen a decline in its player base over the last few months with many users complaining about lack of content, a stale meta and how updates/changes are few and far between - but all that has changed with the launch of Season 2 - Battle Charge.
Apex Legends Season 2 - Battle Charge has been out for a little over 24 hours now and it is a breath of fresh air. Map changes, balance changes, new legend, new gun... this is what I've been waiting for! For the full patch notes, click here.
All these goodies come packed in a 20GB update for console and 18GB for PC - so be prepared to wait a little bit before being able to play. This is due to Respawn releasing this as a new build, so there will be no old files lingering about causing issues.
New Legend: Wattson
Wattson is the newest legend to drop into King's Canyon and she is well worth the wait! She is the most defensive oriented legend to date - again, a breath of fresh air in a game dominated by run and gun style legends. She uses her electrified fences to establish perimeters and make other legends think twice about the route they want to take - and her Interceptor Pylon ultimate acts like an iron dome and shoots incoming ordinance (grenades and bombs from Gibraltar and Bangalore) out of the sky, while simultaneously repairing damaged shields while you are in range.
