LATEST - When does the new Apex season start?

Apex Legends' Season 11 update should start popping up on consoles and PC now, however, the season itself doesn't start just yet. You can jump into Apex Legends' new season of content from the following times:

  • 10:00 November 2nd PST
  • 13:00 November 2nd EST
  • 17:00 November 2nd GMT

Storm Point is going to be the first Ranked BR map and the first map to feature in the updated battle royale map rotation. Ash is also going to be available to unlock and the CAR SMG should start appearing as ground loot following the update.

Be wary, though. Season 10's start was marred with server issues. Season 11 might be the same...

Apex Legends Season 11 Live Updates
STORM POINT - The new map is almost here!
  • New Weapon
    • CAR SMG
  • Ranked Battle Royale Updates
    • Kill RP values now take differences between killer/victim Ranked tiers into account.
    • The kill RP cap (as we have traditionally thought about it up to this point) is effectively being raised from six to seven. However, this kill-related RP cap can be reached in different ways, depending on tier differences and placement. Placement is still paramount, and you still must place first to have a chance at max total RP.
  • Ranked Arenas Updates
    • Arenas Ranked now has 2 splits, similar to Ranked Battle Royale
    • Along with each new season and split, there is a soft MMR reset and new placement matches. New seasons require the usual 10 placement matches while a new split only requires 5 placement matches.
    • Improvements have been made to matchmaking for finding similarly skilled teammates.
    • Reduced the AP amount gained or lost from MMR differences between teams.
  • Legend Balance Changes
    • Wattson
      • Improved the reliability and responsiveness of placing Wattson's Tactical and Ultimate in-world objects.
      • Wattson can place her Tactical and Ultimate objects on valid surfaces above Wattson's eye level (to a reasonable extent).
      • General hitbox size increase, to compensate for the removal of low profile in the Legacy update.
Apex Legends Season 11 Live Updates
WATTSON HITBOX - She's a little bigger now
  • Tactical: Perimeter Defense
    • Increased damage on crossing a Fence by 33%. (15 to 20)
    • Increased debuff duration on crossing a Fence by 100%. (1.5 to 3 seconds)
    • Increased the time allowance to be hit again by a subsequent Fence effect by 100%. (0.5 to 1 second).
    • Decreased recharge time by 50% (30 to 15 seconds).
    • Increased placement range by 50%.
    • Decreased the delay between Fences shutting off and reactivating after an ally passes through them by 60%. (1.0 -> 0.4 seconds)
    • Wattson now moves at Unarmed-speed while readying/placing Fence nodes.
    • Fence nodes can now be placed as soon as the weapon is readied, instead of waiting for the animation to finish.
  • Ultimate - Interception Pylon
    • The Pylon output has been significantly reworked.
      • Reduced the number of active Pylons Wattson can place from 3 to 1.
      • The Pylon now lasts forever (instead of timing out after 90 seconds).
      • The Pylon now has a pool of 250 Shields that can be distributed to nearby players, instead of effectively infinite Shields.
      • Increased the Pylon shield recharge rate by 150%, and smoothed regen rate. (2/second -> 5/second, or more accurately: 1/0.5 seconds -> 1/0.2 seconds)
      • When a Pylon is out of Shields, it no longer recharges players' Shields, but can still zap incoming ordnance.
      • Taking damage while regenerating Shields via the Pylon delays continued regeneration by 1 second.
    • The UI on the ground and HUD elements now displays the amount of Shields that remain in the Pylon.
    • Pinging a friendly Pylon will now display the percentage of Shields remaining in the Pylon.
    • Pylon ordnance-zapping has been moderately reworked.
      • Ordnance is now zapped when the Pylon detects that it would hit any surface within range and line of sight of the Pylon, instead of being zapped as soon as it comes within range.
    • As a part of the changes, current issues where the Pylon doesn't reliably zap ordnance (particularly concerning airstrike abilities, and ordnance that bounced off surfaces near the Pylon) should now be addressed.
  • Weapon Balancing Changes
    • Supply Drop Rotation
      • This season the Triple-Take returns to floor loot and taking its place is the G7 Scout. The Scout enters the Supply Drop with its old friend the Double-Tap Trigger equipped.
