Apex Legends Update 1.24 patch notes: Progression update, weapon charms and more
Apex Legends is getting a pretty big new update today.
The Apex Legends 1.24 update will alter some of the biggest issues players have been experiencing with the game for the last few months, and introduce some longer overdue changes to progression and how you earn loot boxes.
The update is due to hit PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One on December 3, 2019 at anout 6pm GMT (at least, that's if previous updates are anything to go by).
Oddly, Repsawn released the patch notes for the game about a week ago, so we know more or less what to expect from the game when it updates to its newest version.
You can take a look at all the information we know about the update for the title so far below – expect a more robust set of patch notes when the update starts rolling out.
Player Level Cap Increase & an Additional 154 Apex Pack Rewards
The Player Level cap has been increased from 100 to 500. Players can now earn a total of 199 Apex Packs related to Player Level rewards at the following cadence:
- Level 2 – 20: One pack every level (19 Apex Packs total)
- Level 22 – 300: One pack every two levels (140 Apex Packs total)
- Level 305 – 500: One pack every five levels (40 Apex Packs total)
- You will continue to earn 600 Legend Tokens per level and per 18,000 XP at level 500
The net impact of this change is that players will now earn 59 Apex Packs from level 1 – 100 (up from 45 Apex Packs prior to this change). All players will be retroactively awarded any Apex Packs they should have received under this new system. For example, players who are currently level 100 will receive 14 Apex Packs when this system goes live.
Players will now earn a new badge every 10 levels from 110 – 500.
Players will also receive a Player Level Gun Charm inspired by the above badges at levels 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500.
Player Level XP Reductions
Under the old system, there was a large increase in XP required at level 26. Under the new system, we’ve reduced the rate at which XP required to level up increases from levels 20 to 58. The net impact of this change is that the XP curve should be softer for new players, meaning they will get more rewards, faster through level 58. Additionally, the total XP required to hit level 100 will be reduced by approximately 5%. Because XP requirements are being reduced, players between levels 20 and 99 may find they are a level higher after this change goes live, if they were close to leveling up. These XP changes will have no effect on players already at level 100.
The maximum XP required per level will remain at 18,000 starting at level 58 (26 in the old system) and will remain constant through level 500.
We’re introducing 36 new Gun Charms to Apex Packs. They will be available in Epic and Legendary tiers. Additionally, Gun Charms will now rotate through the Shop.
As always, we appreciate all of your support and feedback. We hope these progression improvements make playing Apex Legends a more rewarding and engaging experience!
