While Apex Legends stormed out of the gate with some truly amazing gameplay, the follow-up updates throughout Season 1 haven't exactly been the greatest. There was very little new content to play around with, the weapon 'meta' remained pretty much the same throughout the entire season, and to top it all off, the Battle Pass system required an absurd amount of grinding in order to reach some of the very few interesting rewards.

Thankfully, Season 2 appears to have fixed pretty much all of these problems. Kings Canyon has received a massive makeover, the recent balance changes and hop-up additions have made it so even the weakest weapons have a chance at becoming top-tier, while the Season 2 Battle Pass practically showers you with levels as long as you're paying attention to the challenges. Best of all, there's now even a ranked mode!

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted overview trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly informative one:

On the other hand, if you're interested in the exact details, you'll find the full patch notes over at Reddit. There's quite a few to browse through, so if you're a bit low on time, I'd recommend just checking out the weapon/legend balance changes as those are by far the most impactful ones.

I wish you the best of luck with the newly introduced ranked mode, and I'll leave you with the rather fancy cinematic trailer for Season 2. Enjoy!
