The Apex Legends Season 7 update is set to make a pretty big change to what items you can get from a Replicator through crafting.

Prior to the start of Apex Legends Season 6, players raised a collective eyebrow when Respawn Entertainment announced that they would be adding a crafting feature to the battle royale.

Many assumed that it could be like Fortnite, being able to build cover, but its not like that at all. Instead, the feature has proven to be pretty popular, and has become a key aspect in many matches given that you can get weapons and healing items. 

However, with Season 7 on the horizon, just like many other things, crafting appears to be in for a bit of a change.

Now, you don’t have to worry about getting materials, that still works in the same way. The way we’re alluding to is what you’ll get from Replicators through crafting. 

With the embargo on early gameplay for Season 7 being lifted, some content creators showed that the Replicators now have Shield Batteries instead of Shield Cells inside. It also appears that they offer additional ammo than before too.

However, weapons will no longer offered. Instead, as the devs explained in their patch notes, Shield Batteries have taken their place and the high-level attachments will still be tailored towards a weapon category.

While some players might view crafting as worthless with there ebing no weapons available, having Shield Batteries inside could be quite the game-changer in itself. 

They can, in some situations, be a bit tougher to find, so being able to stock up on them through crafting would be something some players would enjoy.

Teasers for Caustic’s Town Takeover in Apex Legends Season 8 are appearing on Kings Canyon, giving players a mixed bag of hype and dread for what the Toxic Trapper’s event will play like.

Respawn likes to give their Legends a turn in the spotlight with Town Takeovers that transform a point of interest (POI) in the battle royale to emulate a given character. We’ve seen ones for Octane, Mirage, and Bloodhound, just to name a few.

As the studio makes its way through their catalog of Legends, there’s always an atmosphere of renewed excitement for who will get the next Town Takeover going into a season. For Season 8, it’s expected to be part of the Chaos Theory event.

If previous leaks are to be believed, Season 8’s Town Takeover is centered around Caustic and plenty of teasers should be in the game soon.

Apex Legends Caustic Town Takeover teasers

Apex Legends’ loading screen on February 22 showed Caustic walking then stopping to overlook an area just next to Crash Site on Kings Canyon.

Dropping at this location, players could then play a short voice message from Caustic: “The erupted gas pocket and fuel have combined, to create a gargantuan supply of toxin. If there’s a way to refine it, I could mold it into something spectacular.”

The next teaser then dropped on February 25. Again, the loading screen was changed to a new location, and dropping here, you can find another message from Caustic.

“The best way to test this would be human subjects. Luckily, there’s an ample supply of Lab Rats right here.”

 

With all of the discussion going around the Legend, there’s people excited to see what a Caustic Town Takeover would play like. However, players that aren’t loving how strong he is at the moment are dreading to see how toxic the event will be.

According to the schedule, we can expect the next in-game teaser to appear on Feb. 27, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that one too.
