Apex Legends is moving on to Season 10 and Emergence – with several changes and alterations due to be made.
The successful battle royale franchise has done phenomenally well since its introduction to the gaming scene in 2019 and is creating its own legacy right now with masses of new players joining every year.
Respawn and EA showcased more content for fans to digest on the back of its EA Play Live expo, with a gameplay trailer regarding what players can expect from the newest legend Seer and the alterations to World’s Edge.
With an all-new Battle Pass and game modes to conquer, let’s not waste any time and dive into what changes will be made with the Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence patch notes.
Apex Legends Season 10 Patch Notes
Via EA’s official website, here are some of the adaptations that have been made to some of the legends, weapons and hop-ups for Season 10:
- Enemies caught inside the ring of fire from Fuse’s Motherlode ultimate are now revealed to Fuse’s team.
- Knuckle Cluster Tactical explosion duration increased by 100%.
- Grenadier Passive can be toggled on and off to throw ordnance normally.
- Reduced the slow after the initial Black Hole pull.
- Bumped Horizon gravity lift-up speed to a happy medium between 9.1 and Legacy update launch values.
- There’s now a visual and audio cue when Death Totem protection is about to end which can be seen/heard by other players.
- Added a brief slow after being recalled to Death Totem.
- Gas damage starts at 5, increases by 1 every other tick indefinitely.
- Cooldown on Tactical has been reduced 25s -> 20s.
- Ultimate cooldown has been reduced 3.5m -> 3m. Duration reduced from 20s -> 15s.
SUPPLY DROP ROTATION
The Prowler will be taking the place of the M600 Spitfire and Alternator SMG will added to supply drops. Here are more details:
- Boosted Loader – Reloading near empty (but not at 0) increases reload speed and overloads the next magazine with extra rounds. This hop up will be equipable to the Hemlok Burst AR and the Wingman.
- To make room, the Anvil Receiver and Quickdraw Holster are being vaulted for now.
FULLY KITTED ROTATION
- Added: Peacekeeper, Rampage, RE-45, Flatline, and Charge Rifle
- Removed: Wingman, Bocek, R99, Hemlock, and Sentinel
- Reload speed increase associated with magazines has been moved to the equivalent stock rarity tier.
- All stocks now offer increased reload speed (instead of magazines)
- Marksman Weapons (30-30 Repeater, G7 Scout, Triple-Take) now take Sniper Stocks instead of Tactical Stocks
- Sniper Stocks on Marksman weapons will offer increased stability and sway reduction with slightly reduced handling bonuses.
- Now takes Energy Magazines—Mags on the L-STAR work differently than other weapons because of its unique interaction with ammo. Instead they will allow the L-STAR to fire more shots before it overheats and allow it to cool-off its heat build up slightly faster.
- Now take Barrels for recoil reduction
- Projectile VFX scale reduced by roughly half
- First-Person on-hit impact effect intensity reduced
- Hipfire spread increased
LIGHT MACHINE GUNS
- Reduced the headshot multiplier for all LMGs from 2.0 to 1.75

- Damage increased from 18 to 19
- Hip Fire Spread back to season 8 pre-nerf values
- Purple Mag Size increased from 50 to 55
- Reintroducing the Disruptor Rounds which come equipped on a Supply Drop Alternator
- Disruptor Rounds – Increase shield damage by 40%
- Disruptor Rounds can ONLY be found on Alternators from the Supply Drop

We know that Emergence will be released to the world on Tuesday 3rd August 2021, and we expect this patch to be launched on the same day.
At this time, it is not clear what the download size will be. But fear not, we will provide an update as soon as we find out more information on this topic.
Seer, the newest legend added to Apex Legends, will come equipped with an array of abilities that will put his enemies on the back foot. The question remains in regards to how powerful he will be compared to others.
- Passive: Heartbeat Sensor. Seer can track enemies with a heartbeat sensor and obtain information on their whereabouts within close proximity.
- Tactical: Moth Drones. Once tracked down with the Heartbeat Sensor, Seer can send out his moth drones to keep track of enemy movements, similar to Bloodhound’s Scan.
- Ultimate: Seer’s moth combines to create a large dome that identifies and tracks enemy footsteps when moving at pace.
To match, an all-new weapon, the Rampage LMG, will be part of the Season 10 update and one of the main additions to the Apex series.
