Apex Legends Season 18, Resurrection, brings a new Revenant rework along with his Death Grip heirloom, and changes to the Charge Rifle and Ranked matchmaking. There are a few new maps added to the Mixtape playlist, but they may look a little familiar, as they’re from Broken Moon. As always, with a new season, there’ll be a new battle pass and a plethora of new skins for you to grab.

What’s new in Apex Legends Season 18?

Apex Legends Season 18 will add some new features and change a bunch of existing ones. Here are some of the key additions and changes coming in Season 18:

  • Revenant Reborn — Revenant has received a new protocol, giving him a new passive, tactical, and ultimate ability. He also now has an heirloom weapon, which is a sick scythe.
  • Charge Rifle update — The Charge Rifle no longer shoots a hitscan beam, but rather a lobbed projectile that can pierce enemies.
  • Ranked matchmaking — Overall LP gains per match have been decreased, and there has been an incentive to get eliminations in your matches.
  • Death Dynasty Collection Event — Get double XP in Battle Royale from Aug. 8-15 and in Mixtape from Aug. 15-22. You can also grab Revenant’s Death Grip Heirloom after you’ve gotten all 24 collection event items.
