In a world of skill-based matchmaking and endless third parties from less-skilled teams, Fuse emerge from the flames with an ability kit designed to devastate enemies and create space for teammates. Respawn Entertainment has given us a new take on Season 8 with a gameplay trailer which you can watch above. Apex Legends’ latest character, Fuse, can knock out and damage opponents with his pellet launcher or throw grenades from a mechanism on his wrist (as at the end of the previous one). cinematic trailer). His ultimate launches projectiles that fall to the ground and burn any enemies that might be in the area of effect. Fuse seems like the perfect legend for gamers who just want to watch the world burn and its let it go personality is just an added bonus.
In addition to Fuse, there will be new Battle Pass cosmetics available (the Lifeline skin in the gameplay trailer is pretty cool). But, more importantly, a higher tier for magazines joins the loot rotation. Gold ammo attachments have the same capacity as their purple counterparts but come with an autoloader perk. You can watch Rampart attach the Gold Charger to his Spitfire and devastate an entire team. The perk likely means reload times will be reduced, but it’s unclear whether or not that stacks with Bulwark’s passive ability.
The 30-30 repeater has finally had time to shine. The new weapon appears to be a cross between the semi-automatic fire of the popular G7 Scout and the charge functionality of the Sentinel. You could even say that the rifle’s medium to long range versatility is reminiscent of the ADS activated choke that makes the Peacekeeper shotgun so powerful. And with the sweeping Kings Canyon changes set to come early in Season 8, the 30-30 Repeater may well find its way to the top of the loadout charts alongside the Volt SMG.
Speaking of geographic changes, Kings Canyon was erased by Fuse’s childhood friend Maggie. Thus, new areas have emerged from the ashes of the old ones. With the inclusion of armories, elevated terrain on the fly, never-before-seen points of interest, and optimized map rotations, roaming Kings Canyon in search of firefights will once again be refreshing. You can see these awesome features for yourself here.
Apex Legends Season 8 launches on February 2, so be sure to grind during the final days of Season 7 to get more wins for your in-game player card. You can also prepare to play Apex games for the first time on Nintendo Switch (if the rumors are true, of course.)
