Apex Legends 1.23 Update Patch Notes | Highlights
Limited-Time Mode: Duos
The new limited-time mode is Duos, with players split into teams of two, instead of the usual three. This mode will be available from November 5 to November 19.
The Firing Range is a new location that players can use to try out new guns with different attachments. It’s possible to enter the Firing Range as both a solo or with your squad, which is an improvement over the tutorial.
Players are able to quickly switch between characters and use their abilities and ultimates. What’s more, all loot items are available to use, including weapons, attachments, and hopups.
Buffs and Nerfs
The Wingman has been hit with another nerf, with its headshot multiplier seeing a minor reduction from 2.15 to 2.1.
The shotguns, L-STAR, and snipers (Longbow DMR, Kraber, and G7 Scout) have all had their projectile width increased, meaning they are easier to hit with.
Crypto’s EMP is now able to damage armor that players have removed. Previously, players were able to quickly drop their armor and suffer no damage. They could then pick it up again at full armor health. This exploit has now been fixed.
Friendly Caustic gas no longer kicks Crypto out of his drone, and Lifeline is now able to heal Crypto when he’s in the drone view.
