Apex Legends could use several changes but this small, but significant, change to gold armor would greatly improve things. 

With fans not receiving any more information about Season 2 of Apex Legends until E3 2019 during EA Play, many fans have decided to spend their time finding ways to improve the game.

One fan suggested a simple addition to the gold body armor, something that would greatly improve the armor, while also keeping it from being overpowered.

Does gold armor need a change?

There are a variety of small tweaks that can be made to Apex Legends to help keep it feeling fresh but this idea from Reddit user blicky-stiffy might just be one of the best ideas yet.

Currently, gold body armor easily provides the best level of protection available for players, but there is still room for improvement to make it even more valuable.

This simple tweak would also allow the armor to regenerate over time, meaning players won’t have to rely on shield batteries of phoenix kits for repair after a battle.

Many of the changes and suggestions from the community often would make things overpowered, but we think this would be quite balanced as it wouldn’t have the ability to recharge during a firefight. 

It would just be a simple way to cut out the need for additional healing after a firefight.

What’s coming with Season 2?

Respawn Entertainment teased plenty of new and exciting content coming with Season 2. The Season 1 Battle Pass received a lukewarm reaction from the community but it sounds like that issue will be remedied for Season 2.

Among these teases include an improved Battle Pass, new weapons, new Legends and even some new points of interest on the map.

If you’re an Apex Legends fan you’re going to want to make sure you pay attention to EA’s E3 presentation as it sounds like a lot of information will be released there.

Apex Legends is adding a no-guns LTM in Season 7: Olympus Preview

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
