According to the patch notes that have been posted on the Apex Legends Subreddit, the biggest changes have been introduced to both Caustic and Gibraltar. According to the community manager behind the game, Jay Frechette, these two characters as well as Pathfinder were taking more damage than other heroes because of their increased hitboxes. Readjusting them worked for Pathfinder, but Caustic and Gibraltar were still at a noticeable disadvantage. To compensate for this, the team added a 10% armor bonus passive ability to the two characters, which is known as Fortified. They also received a variety of other tweaks to make them more competitive in the meta.

On top of those changes, Respawn added a way for players to earn more XP for their Battle Pass. Fans will notice that their first top 5 of the day will net them a whole Battle Pass tier, which can be taken advantage of every day until the bonus XP event is over.
