Apex Legends August 23 Patch Notes (Seer Changes)

Apex Legends August 23 Patch Notes

The latest Apex Legends August 23 patch notes are officially available, as the Seer Update has rolled out to everyone this afternoon. Respawn’s latest patch introduces several changes to its Seer Legend, including various passive, tactical, and ultimate changes. The developers also introduced a few new bug fixes and addressed some minor issues with volume and graphical bugs. Let’s take a look at the Apex Legends August 23 Patch Notes.

Overall, we see some big changes to Seer’s passive and tactical abilities. The wait time between sensor spikes for full HP targets is increased by another half-second. Additionally, Seer’s tactical ability, which summons micro-drones is getting some nerfs. The detonation delay from Focus of Attention is now 0.2 seconds longer, and players hit by it are no longer damaged or flashed. Screen shake from being hit is also reduced, making it a lot less annoying to play against.

Lastly, Seer’s ultimate also now has a thirty-second longer cooldown, up to 120 seconds from the previous 90 seconds. You can read the full Apex Legends Seer changes down below.
