Respawn Entertainment teased the future arrival of some incredible new content for Apex Legends before Season 1 got underway. There’s a lot of interesting items and features to look forward to, so let’s take a look at the entire list of things you can soon expect to see in Kings Canyon.

Apex Legends Wild Frontier launched on March 19, promising plenty of new content for players of the popular battle royale title.

Fans who have purchased the season pass have already unlocked a plethora of new skins, alongside a new character – Octane. However, the demand for more content is ever-growing and some eager fans have wasted little time in hyping up some of the unreleased features already. 

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesLegends like Lifeline have already received new looks in Season One.

One fan, Reddit user FrozenFroh, has put together a full list of the different types of content that have been teased to be a part of Season 1 – ranging from weapons and an additional Legend to play with, to changes to the current map by restoring some damaged locations.

In FrozenFroh’s snazzy graphic, evidence has been presented from a number of different pre-Season 1 announcements from Respawn. One of the main teases, the much-anticipated L-Star weapon, has still yet to be added to the game – even though stats for the gun were leaked back in early February.

FrozenFroh also points out that fans have seen images of a re-constructed Thunderdome area – in what could signal the first major map change in the future. 

There’s also the question of a new Legend. Wattson has been teased for some time, popping up in leaks shortly after information Octane began being released. The character, who looks set to be centered around electrical abilities, is seemingly the next Legend to be added to the game – although, it’s still up in the air as to when it’ll be released. 

The L-Star appeared prior to the season one teaser but has to be released.

It remains to be seen if Respawn adds any of this batch of content any time soon, or if they have plans to introduce all of it towards the end of Season 1 in a bid to build hype for Season 2. 

Wild Frontier might have just begun, but details about Season 2, which has been rumored to begin around June 5, have already surfaced. 

As with any leak or unofficial reveal of game information, there’s a chance that plans could change and it’s quite possible that Respawn showed off some of these teases, including the interestingly rebuilt Thunderdome, and scrapped their plans for one reason or another. 

We’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out.

Every possible RP gain in Apex Legends ranked

Ranked play in Apex Legends allows players to test themselves against others of similar skill and claim special cosmetic items (and bragging rights). A helpful Reddit post breaks down exactly how many Ranked Points players will earn – or lose – based on rank, placement, and kills.

Almost all FPS games offer a separate ranked playlist for their players, and Apex Legends is no different. Since its release in Season 2, the game’s ranked mode has provided players with a way to test their skills against the best of the best.

Ranked Leagues separate players into seven skill brackets – ranging from Bronze to Apex Predator – based on their performance in two ranked splits. Each player’s current rank, match placement, and number of kills/assists determines the number of Ranked Points (RP) they will earn or lose every game.

With RP determined by several different factors, players can find it challenging to track how many points they are earning or losing each match. However, one player has come to the aid of anyone who gets confused.

Apex Legends RP combos

A post on the Apex Legends subreddit helps to clear things up for anyone confused about their potential RP gains. The helpful graphic comes from user Ninjario, who breaks down how many points players can gain or lose based on all three contributing factors: current player rank, final match placement, and total kills/assists.

The graphic shows the exact combinations needed to go positive in each match and what will cause players to lose RP for every skill bracket.

This provides players with an easy understanding of what performance to strive for in ranked: for example, Predator and Master players can easily see that a 6th place finish with three kills or assists is the absolute minimum needed for an RP gain (+6) in their skill bracket.

Ranked Leagues in Season 7

With the release of Season 7, a new ranked series also kicked off in Apex Legends. Starting on November 4, players will compete in ranked on the new Olympus map until December 15. The second split takes place on World’s Edge, and will run from December 15 to the end of Season 7.

In the Season 7 ranked update post, Respawn’s ranked designers discussed the state of ranked play. They covered topics like the ranking distribution of players from Season 6, and some of their on-going goals for the ranked playlist.

The first ranked split of Season 7 is currently available for players to jump into on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
