Apex Legends 1.07 Update Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.07 update has just gone live. Otherwise known as the Apex Legends 1.1.1 patch for PC, the new Apex update for April 16 is really ringing the changes. Not only does Apex Legends 1.07 introduce the new Fortified perk for Caustic and Gibraltar to the battle royale, Respawn has also listened to the community and helped bring about weapon balances, including a tasty sniper buff. That’s not all. There’s even a new Battle Pass bonus event to consider. It’s all here down below in the Apex Legends 1.07 update patch notes.

New Fortified perk; Caustic and Gibraltar changes

Gibraltar and Caustic mains will be pleased to know that both of the Champions now have a new passive perk. Fortified reduces damage by 10%, which could be the different between life and death.

Caustic has also received a nice buff, with Gas doing more damage per second, and his throw distance increased.

Gibraltar, meanwhile, has had his thicc gun shield made even better. It’s now at 75 health instead of 50.

Weapon changes, buffs, and nerfs

Respawn is focusing (pun intended) on long-range guns for the Apex Legends 1.07 update. Weapon sway and sway speed has been reduced considerably on the G7, Triple Take, and the Longbow DMR.

Speaking of which, the Longbow DMR buff could make it your new weapon of choice. Its rate of fire has gone up from 1.2 to 1.6, and its magazine size has increased.

The Wingman and the Spitfire have received slight nerfs, which are outlined below in the patch notes.

Battle Pass bonus event

Let’s face it, the Battle Pass was a bit of a bust upon launch. Its grindy nature left a sour taste in the mouth. Respawn is doing its best to rectify that with a limited-time-only Battle Pass bonus event. If you finish in the top 5 every day up until April 18, you’ll go up a Battle Pass tier. It’s only applicable once a day, but it’s a welcome boost for those looking to jump back in to Kings Canyon.

In honor of Thicc-boi buffs, we’re going to be running a bonus Battle Pass XP event. From approximately 10AM PST 4/16 through approximately 10AM PST 4/18, your first Top 5 of the day (your squad places 5th or better in a match) will grant you 1 full bonus Battle Pass Level (29,500 BPP), up to a max of level 110. You can earn this once per day.

We’ll also be finding other moments during the season to add Battle Pass XP bonuses, so stay tuned!


    • Increased the speed of the ship by about 50%

      • We felt that the ship was moving a bit too slow after watching player behavior so we’re speeding it up so players that like to drop later in the flight path don’t have to wait so long.


    • Fixed UI bug where the wrong percentage would be displayed for all boost badges.
