What's In-Store This Time?

There's a lot going on in the Apex Legends Chaos Theory event and some people are going to be a bit annoyed about how the meta is shaping up going into the Nintendo Switch launch.

Caustic is getting a substantial nerf to his Nox Gas and Gas Grenade, Pathfinder doesn't have Low Profile anymore, and Horizon's Black Hole is getting a 50% cooldown increase.

They're minor changes in the grand scheme of things but it's hard to deny that they won't make a difference going forward!

For the full Apex Legends Patch Notes, you can find them here.

With Caustic getting a little nerf, do you think he's going to drop off a lot in popularity?

His Nox Gas does a lot less damage now over time and his Gas Grenades take a minute longer to cool-down. It isn't a good time to be a Caustic Main, but is a good time to be a fan. Weird.

Pathfinder is also a popular choice, but he has lost Low Profile too. We're not sure this will affect how often he is picked but will it change his win percentage?
