Apex Legends is getting a level cap increase and gun charms
Respawn Entertainment has outlined changes that it will be making to progression in Apex Legends next week.
When the game’s next update drops on December 3rd, the player level cap will be increased from 100 to 500. As a result, players will be able to earn a total of 199 free Apex Packs. The following free packs are being offered during progression:
- Level 2 – 20: One pack every level
- Level 22 – 300: One pack every two levels
- Level 305 – 500: One pack every five levels
The developer noted that players will retroactively receive all the packs they have already earned. However, as mentioned by a developer on Reddit, this will only include the additional packs from 1-100, as all players at the current cap will start from level 100.
In addition to earning Apex Packs, players will get a new badge every 10 levels and a new Gun Charm every 100. These 5 new charms will be joined by an additional 36 that will be introduced to Apex Packs and the in-game store.
Finally, Respawn detailed a couple of changes that will be made to XP requirements in the December 3rd update. The rate required to go from level 20-58 has been reduced significantly and the total required to reach level 100 has been reduced by approximately five percent. The maximum XP required per level will be set at 18,000 from level 58 to 500.
Apex Legends is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
