Apex Legends Season 15


Apex Legends Brings Back Disruptor Rounds but There’s a Catch

Updated On: 
RE-45 is entering the care package with Disruptor Rounds and increased base damage in Apex Legends Season 15.
The Mastiff is returning to the ground loot with some balance changes to make it less powerful than its care package version.
The Anvil Receiver is also making a return for the Flatline and R-301.

Apex Legends Season 15 is arriving today and the worst fear of any Season Zero player has returned. The Disruptor Rounds hop-up has returned to the game but thankfully, it is accessible only if you pick up the RE-45 from a care package. The Disruptor-Hammerpoint combo will not be available to the playerbase as the Hammerpoint Rounds hop-up is being removed from the game temporarily and the Anvil Receiver is being added in its place. The balance changes in the new update are for weapons only and there are no legend balance changes in the new update.

The entry to ranked mode has also been raised from level 10 to 20.
