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.
