Apex Legends Season 14 Hunted patch notes

Apex Legends, the free-to-play battle royal-hero shooter gamer, developed by Respawn Entertainment, and published by Electronic Arts, has been one of the most popular and entertaining titles ever since its launch in early 2019.

Apex Legends has been a prolific game till now, in that in just 3 years, it has launched 13 successful seasons till now. And it has been the practice of the developers to reveal something about their plans for the future season at the end of each season. Since we are at the end of the 13th season of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment has revealed that the next season will be named “Hunted".

In Season 14, we will get to experience a new Agent called Vantage, a new Season Battle Pass, map changes, a New Ranked Season, and a lot of other stuff. Respawn has gotten into the habit of calling each season not by its numerical value, but by a word that defines its central theme ever since season 9. Seasons 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 were given the names "Legacy," "Emergence," "Escape," "Defiance," and "Saviors" respectively.

We can derive some information about the season from its title. As this season will be called “Hunted,” it will have to do with taking down others. Vantage’s abilities also reflect this name.

Apex Legends Season 14 Hunted

An official trailer was put out recently on YouTube, which revealed features of the upcoming season 14 of Apex Legends. The trailer was 3.03 minutes long and we get to see the new agent Vantage’s abilities up close and near, and also the new features coming with it.

Apex Legends Season 14 Hunted trailer delves into the character's purpose for participating in the Apex Games, which has something to do with her mother's ostensibly unjust imprisonment. In this trailer, she teams up with Fuse and Horizon and leads a squad to victory despite being young and being referred to as a pup by Fuse.

The teaser appears to allude to some of Vantage's skills and showcases her endearing sidekick Echo. Additionally, it appears that Vantage and her team are on Kings Canyon, hinting to some additional map alterations.

The official Apex Legends Season 14 Hunted trailer description reads: "Vantage’s mother may have raised her to survive the wilds of Págos, but she never crossed paths with a Legend. With her squadmates' help, she’ll need to discover the will to survive."

Apex Legends Season 13 Release Date

The previous Season of Saviors was released on April 28, and it came with a new Seasonal Battle Pass like it always does. This reward track includes a day-by-day countdown timer that shows how long the season is expected to continue.

And now it has been officially announced that Apex Legends Season 14 Hunted will be out on 9th August 2022.

On August 9, 2022, Apex Season 14 will be made available at precisely:

  • 13:00 ET
  • 10:00 PT
  • 18:00 BST
  • 19:00 CEST

There are no surprises here because this is the regular update time for Apex and when the Apex item store is updated each week.

Apex Legends Season 14 - New Agent Vantage

As we’ve discussed, Newcastle will be replaced by Vantage in season 14 of Apex Legends. Her mother, Xenia (a survivor), raised Mara or better known as Vantage, alone on the ice planet Pagos. Vantage has a history of being skilled with sniper rifles and always has an earlier Sentinel model about her (which is her ultimate ability in-game).

She read the Encyclopedia Outlandica, which has helped her understand a lot about the world, but reading and experiencing are two different things. Hence, Vantage is the most extreme survivalist but also the least sociable character in the Apex Games as a result of this raising.

The following are the abilities of Apex Legends Vantage:

  • PASSIVE: Spotter’s Lens

Aim down sights to scout with your eyepiece (unarmed or with mid- to long-range scopes) and use a bullet drop indicator to see where your shots will land.

  • TACTICAL: Echo Location

Position your winged companion Echo and then Launch towards him. Must have a line of sight to Echo for Launch.

  • ULTIMATE: Sniper’s Mark

Use your custom sniper rifle to mark enemy targets which apply a damage bonus for you and your team.

Apex Legends Season 14 Map - King's Canyon map changes

King's Canyon is the map for the first split of the Apex Season 14 Ranked Leagues, which will have some major changes to it. There will be a lot of King's Canyon map updates.

A brand-new Skybox from Respawn Entertainment will change how each match's lighting and visuals are presented in Kings Canyon. Along with this, Kings Canyon's land area is increased, and the new Relic PoI is included.

In order to improve the flow of the map, Respawn Entertainment carefully examined the rotations on Kings Canyon and changed a number of macro rotations and pathways too. To ensure that players cycle in a proactive rather than reactive manner, some paths must be opened while others must be closed.

A lot of improvements have been made to Season 14 map that widen some regions in order to achieve better matching tempo and battle length. For instance, the top of Cage is no longer available for players to hunker down, snipe, and use as a defensive high ground during firefights.

Apex Legends Season 14 Battle Pass

It won’t be a “new” season if we don’t get to see a brand-new battle pass. This season’s battle pass will be called “Hunted.” And you can be sure to see some awesome skins for characters, weapons, skydive emotes, seasonal trackers, banners, weapon charms, music packs, and whatnot in the new Hunted battle pass.

The developers have disclosed that some Battle Pass missions can now be finished in either Battle Royale or non-Battle Royale modes, giving players the freedom to finish the Battle Pass however they see fit.

In Season 5, Skull Town and Thunderdome were sunk by a massive explosion caused by Loba. Now that the Salvage operation is complete, the Syndicate has rebuilt the area for the Apex Games.
