An Apex Legends fan has put forward their idea for a rework to Bangalore and her ultimate, with one Respawn dev even noticing it as “good feedback.”

While Respawn Entertainment are the only ones who can make changes to Apex Legends, that doesn’t stop fans from putting their ideas forward. Players put forward ideas for everything from new cosmetics to new legends as well as makeovers for the current crop.

With legends like Crypto, lifeline, and Wraith receiving tweaks recently, the focus has shifted on to other characters – with Bangalore being thrust into the spotlight as being next in line. 

While Respawn might have their own ideas, they’ve seemingly been helped by one fan who put forward a pretty convincing case for their concept.

Respawn EntertainmentBangalore is a popular figure in Apex Legends.

The idea came from Pooch, who noted that Bang’s ultimate should rain down slightly faster and not stun her team, but can still stun her. On top of that, when she activates double time, only her holstered gun should reload.

Though, the Twitter user also put forward the idea that as her ultimate is being readied, Bangalore should get a speed boost. This would allow her to become more aggressive and push towards enemies as they prepare for the worst.

Pooch added that the “most annoying” thing about using Bangalore is that her ultimate takes too long to charge and is pretty ineffective in its current state – usually forcing teams to split up to avoid being stunned by its friendly fire.

Josh Medina, a produced for Apex Legends, seemingly took the feedback on board, responding to the initial tweet.

“Good feedback here,” Medina noted, much to the joy of fans who urged him and the Respawn team to move forward and show Bangalore some much-needed love in future updates. 

Obviously, while fans have their ideas for changes, Respawn have got to keep the battle royale balanced. So, they will likely have some thoughts of their own for changes, but may sprinkle in a bit of these fan ideas.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens to the Professional Soldier later down the line. Though, it does seem clear that she is one of the next legends in line for an update.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
