While Season 18 isn’t bringing a new Legend to the Apex Games, a number of current Legends have received buffs and nerfs in hopes of shaking up the game’s meta and making things feel fresh and fun.

Season 18, much like the recent Season 16, will not be bringing a new Legend to Apex. Instead, developers Respawn Entertainment decided to rework Revenant as ‘Revenant Reborn’, with complete changes to his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.

It’s not only Revenant facing changes though, with a number of other Legends facing changes to even the playing field and ensure every character is viable.
