What are the Apex Season 8 Patch Notes?

Weapons are used to overcome enemies and the Apex Legends Weapons are one of the top game weapons. Apex Legends Weapons are refreshed often through updates where new guns, ammunition, and other attachments are added. The latest installment in season 8 is the Anvil Receiver. The Apex season 8 patch notes are as follows:

New Legend 


  • A mercenary-turned-cage fighter who never turns down a good dust-up. His affinity for explosions allows him to carry extra grenades and to throw them faster and further. He can launch a cluster bomb with airburst explosives. And when it’s time to really bring the boom, Fuse uses “Wally” to launch a bombardment that encircles an area in a ring of flames.

Tactical - Knuckle Cluster

  • Launch a cluster bomb that continuously expels airburst explosives on impact.

Passive - Grenadier

  • Stack an extra grenade per inventory slot. Fire grenades farther, faster, and more accurately.

Ultimate - The Motherlode

  • Launch a bombardment that encircles a target area in a wall of flames.

New Weapon

30-30 Repeater

  • The 30-30 is the benchmark for reliability, designed to withstand whipping sandstorms and temporal instability, which made it an obvious choice for the Apex Games.
  • This heavy ammo lever-action repeater boasts hard-hitting rounds that’ll nail a fleeing Mirage at 200 paces.

King Canyon Map Update

  • Kings Canyon changes are once again seen in Season 8. The main new point of interest shows the devastation from the ship crashing into the map. Players can now explore beyond Artillery, Spotted Lakes takes over the Slums and some new observation towers for basic recon or a sniper’s nest. 

Legendary Magazines

  • Gold-tier magazines are introduced in season 8. Attaching it to a weapon automatically reloads your stowed weapons after a brief delay. The Gold magazine has the same capacity as Purple mags and is available for Light, Heavy, Snipers, and Energy Weapons.


Damage counter

  • A damage counter is added to the HUD. This was a highly requested feature, it can allow people to easily track to chase those badges and challenges!

Color Blind update

  • Healing and reviving will now follow colorblind rules when colorblind settings are enabled

Pinging Ammo

  • Pinging weapons or ammo in your inventory displays your current ammo count along with "player wants ammo" in a quick chat.

Lore Blurbs on Canon Skins

  • Some of our skins are canon, and some are just for fun. For the skins that represent an important part of that character's backstory, a small blurb is added to describe the significance of that skin in the Legend's life.



  • Hitbox adjustments.
  • Wraith now has a slightly larger hitbox than her fellow small legends, but the changes stay true to her model. As you can see in the before and after comparison, some width is added mostly in the torso and leg areas: Even with these changes, Wraith remains small and hard to hit. She will retain Low Profile as we monitor her usage and win rates to see if power can be given back in other ways in the future.


  • Gravity Lift effective cooldown increased from 21s to 25s. The 15s cooldown timer will now start when the Gravity Lift disappears.


  • Sheila angle increase from 120° to 180°
  • Wall health in the build phase increased from 1hp to 45hp (sniper rounds still pierce through)


  • LaunchPad Remastered: Many players may have known about Octane’s “super-jump” that was possible with a well-timed jump while hitting the pad. Once the double-jump option was introduced, there was an input clash that led to unreliable usage. Some launch options are added that are better defined than the old super-jump.
  • Hitting the jump pad from a standing position will launch players along a high arc (the speed and trajectory of the old super-jump).
  • From a crouched position, players will launch along a low arc, meaning they’ll fly lower but farther in the horizontal direction.


  • Loot inside unopened care packages is now visible with Eye for Quality and accessible through the Black Market Boutique.


  • Remove ability to stick arc stars to friendly drones.


  • Mirage decoys create footstep sounds.


  • All gas now dissipates as soon as Caustic’s team is eliminated.


  • Fully Kitted Rotation
  • Removed: Wingman, Sentinel, Havoc, G7, Alternator
  • Added: R-301, 30-30 Repeater, Mozambique, Longbow DMR, Spitfire


  • We are removing the Gold Barrel from the loot pool


  • Bullet damage decreased from 16 to 15

Hop Ups

  • The Double Tap hop up will be removed from the loot pool
  • The Anvil Rounds hop up will be added to the loot pool


  • Bullet damage increased from 15 to 16


  • The fire rate increased from 2.0 to 2.1


  • Bullet damage increased from 18 to 19
  • Reload speed increased from 2.8 seconds to 3.2
  • Empty Reload speed increased from 3.33 seconds to 3.8



  • Sonar’s abilities no longer stop Caustic’s highlight vision.

  • Fixed an issue with Rampart's passive persisting even after changing characters in Firing Range


  • Fixed a few exploitable areas on Kings Canyon that Loba was able to reach via her Bracelet.


  • Fixed a POV issue that occurred when using Horizon’s abilities, then immediately going into ADS with a Peacekeeper.


  • Fixed an issue causing the Havoc to have 100% accuracy when hip-fired through Rampart’s Amped Cover.


  • Re-enabled ability to invite friends to the club from the friends list
  • Fixed an issue causing some users who have opted out of "Last Squad Invites" to not appear in club event timelines when placing in the top 5 of a match
