Apex Legends Season 6 Update Makes Major Gameplay Change, Patch Notes Revealed

A new Apex Legends Season 6 update has just been released via the PS4, Xbox One, and PC alongside official patch notes. And unlike some previous updates, this new one dropped by Respawn makes some, or at least one, considerable change to the game. In addition to this, it also comes with a few bug fixes and changes to a handful of legends, including a big fix for Loba.

The most notable inclusion is the tweak to armor health. While all armor is still evo armor, armor health is reverting to how it was before Season 6 launched last month. This may seem like a minor change on the surface, but it's something fans have been demanding since Season 6 launched.

The other biggest part of the update is a fix to the issue impacting Loba's teleport to randomly fail, which made the character difficult to use compared to some other legends.

Below, you can check out the full patch notes, courtesy of Respawn:
