After being dormant for most of Season 1, the start of Apex Legends Season 2 has seen the Leviathans moving around and even stomping on unsuspecting players, but they deliver powerful loot if you’re quick enough.

On top of all the new additions to Apex, players now have to be on the lookout for a well-placed Leviathan stomp that can lead to a swift end to their life.

However, if you’re in the right place at the right time, you can swoop in under a Leviathan’s foot and grab the loot it reveals, but only if you make the decision right away.

Respawn EntertainmentLeviathans have become dangerous in Season 2.

Reddit user azgadian said you only have six seconds from when the Leviathan lifts its foot until when it slams it back down. 

If you’re able to time everything correctly, you could find yourself grabbing an important piece of loot, perhaps a Phoenix Kit like azgadian found. The key is just making sure you arrive just as the foot rises or else you might end up being crushed.

Don’t miss your window

If you aren’t paying attention, you might end up being squished like we saw happen to Reddit user SupaSnipaX’s opponent.

In the middle of a firefight, the Leviathan leg’s came crashing down and not only did it eliminate his enemy but also rewarded him with the kill.

That angle showed us what it looks like from the surviving player’s point of view but popular streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar showed us what it’s like to be crushed by one of the behemoths.

When he realized the Leviathan was preparing itself for the kill, Tim decided to sacrifice himself for the greater good.

Leviathans aren’t a joke this season so you’ll need to be wary of their roars and feet.

However, they represent a high-risk high-reward type situation so sometimes it’s worth taking a chance with them.

Apex Legends director reveals plans to make it more than a battle royale

Apex Legends is currently one of the most popular battle royale games in what is a saturated market, going toe-to-toe with Fortnite and Warzone – but developers Respawn Entertainment have plans to make it much more than that.

Apex is currently gearing up for its seventh season, which devs have boasted is their biggest yet in terms of new content, as they release the game’s third map, a new Legend, Horizon, and a host of new features like Clubs and a Steam launch.

However, while the battle royale side of things is going from strength to strength, Respawn are ambitious, and have plans to take their Apex Legends universe to new places.

Their focus might currently still be on the battle royale, but game director Chad Grenier has revealed that the studio has much grander plans for the future.

The future of Apex Legends

In an interview with Eurogamer, Grenier revealed that they are already working on content for up to Season 12 of Apex, as they try to plan as far ahead as possible.

But, beyond just the new seasons of content, there is also a wider view about how they can take their roster of Legends and do new and exciting things. “Right now we’re a battle royale game. I think if you look into the future, we have a lot of conversations of, you know, should we expand beyond battle royale?” Grenier said.

“We have this roster of legends that people love – how else can we use them? I think looking into the future, you’re probably going to see the game becoming more than just a battle royale game. You see we have all these LTMs (limited time modes) and other ways to play. I think that’s a great starting point.”

What exactly this could mean is unclear, but we can make a few educated guesses. The most obvious would be some form of PvP multiplayer mode, Call of Duty style. Respawn’s Titanfall series already did this successfully, and many developers at the studio actually worked on the Modern Warfare series at Infinity Ward previously.

The other obvious option would be PvE. They’ve already dabbled their toes in this with the Season 5 quest, which had small single-player ‘missions’ of sorts, but it wasn’t an all-out campaign or story mode as such.

Given the great lore that Apex Legends has already built up through trailers, teaser and comics, it certainly would make sense to give it more gameplay aspects too.

For now, the focus is on Season 7, but it sounds like Apex Legends has big plans to innovate beyond the standard battle royale.
