Apex Legends Mobile Season 1 – Patch Notes on May 16, 2022

Electronic Arts have just announced and released the first Apex Legends Mobile Season 1 patch notes for all the players. The game is going live for the global audience in a few hours, and the developers have just listed all the new changes they have made since the last regional beta. The main highlight includes a mobile-exclusive legend called Fade has made its way to the game, along with a number of weapon buffs and nerfs.

NEW LEGEND:

Fade

Ignacio Huamaní was the youngest in a family of military-tech hunters. Working together, they made a living “recovering” weaponry and selling it to the highest bidder. As the youngest, he was the lookout, and eager to prove he could handle more. So he took on a contract with a mysterious client, and acquired the suit for him. But it was a trap: his family died, and the suit propelled him into another dimension. It’s been a long journey, but he’s finally back, and ready to find justice and redemption in the Apex Games. He can’t turn back the clock for his family, but on the Battlefield, he is the master of not only his own destiny, but the destiny of those in his crosshairs.

Passive: Slipstream

Fade gains a short movement speed boost at the end of his slide.

Tactical: Flashback

Fade’s suit rips him backwards through another dimension, phasing him to his previous location.

Phase Chamber

Fade throws an activator core from his suit.The resulting explosion phases everyone within the radius for a few seconds making them unable to deal or receive damage.
