Rapper ScHoolboy Q gave his opinion on what was better between Fortnite and Apex Legends on an episode of Hot Ones.

With Season 2 of Apex Legends coming up, many eyes are focused on how it will be able to compete with Fortnite. Respawn promises a much improved Battle Pass and based on what we’ve seen so far from the season, Fortnite does appear to have Apex as a competitor again.

ScHoolboy Q weighed in on what he thinks is better while enjoying some delicious flaming hot chicken wings.

Fortnite or Apex?

You might get a vastly different answer on what’s better between the two depending on who you ask, but ScHoolboy Q thinks the answer is clear.

“Fortnite was dope when it first came out,” he said. “I was fuckin with it. I was going in. But then they started making it weak, kid-friendly ya know what I mean? Once a game gets so big they have no choice but to cater to the weaker side of it.”

He didn’t stop there as the SoCal rapper also said Apex is killing Fortnite right now, which is definitely up for debate.

“As of right now, Apex is shittin’ on Fortnite,” he said. “But Apex is growing rapidly, crazy, crazy. It’s gonna be just as big as Fortnite and they are gonna cater to a bunch of weak ass, lil ass, punk ass kids. Then I’m gonna be right back to ol’ faithful Call of Duty.”

Apex Legends Season 2 begins on July 2 and with it comes a brand-new Battle Pass, new challenges, a new Legend in Wattson, and much more.

Fortnite always brings a plethora of new content with its seasons too and usually does something to shake up the meta.

It will be interesting to see how the two compare with both dishing out new content in the very near future.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
