Diehard Apex Legends players have been sitting at level 100 in the game for a while now, and a revamped take to a prestige system would finally give them something more to grind for in the battle royale.

By simply playing Apex Legends people can get hundreds of hours of entertainment dropping into Kings Canyon. But the progression and rewards can stagnate after reaching the level cap, leaving a lot of players lost for something to play for.

Even though there is a Battle Pass to keep the game’s rewards somewhat fresh, players looking for an alternative would be hard-pressed on finding a reason to keep dropping into a game.

Apex Legends can add some prestige to its leveling

In a Reddit post, user ‘Lost_Set’ created such an alternative that would take a bit of work from Respawn to make but would give players an infinitely better progression system to track their progress while dishing out meaningful rewards.

“I think a prestige system would be a great solution,” Lost_Set said. “Every time you hit a level that is a multiple of 100, you are given the option to prestige. At certain levels (101, 301, 501, 701) you get to add another badge to your banner. At 901 you get a golden banner. Level 1000 should be a big prize, I’m not sure what though.”

Lost_Set went on to say that while extra badges are great, it wouldn’t be the only reward for prestiging in their design. They say that it would continue the trend of receiving loot crates every so often, similar to how it was “pre level 100.”

Moreover, the user even outlined a benefit to not prestiging in their system: “If you sit at level 100*n, then you get a small number of crafting materials every time you earn a new level.”

Could a Prestige system ever make it to Apex Legends?

Either way, the Redditor thinks their take would “keep the game rewarding for players” regardless if they take advantage of the prestige or not.

For onlookers thinking it wouldn’t work since the devs rely on selling loot boxes to players in their free-to-play model, Lost_Set thinks there’s a give and take relationship: “They sell more crates if they retain a large player base. They retain a large player base by giving their players something to work towards. Right now they are not doing that.”

Lost_Set’s design is so far proving to be popular with the masses, and with the next season of Apex Legends coming on July 2 the devs could be on the lookout for creative ways to keep players engaged in their game.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
