New Legend - Mad Maggie

As a familiar face to Apex Legends fans, Mad Maggie might be in for a change of hearts with the new update.

  • Passive - Warlord's Ire - Temporarily highlight enemies you've damaged, and move faster with a shotgun
  • Ultimate - Wrecking Ball - Throw a ball that releases speed-boosting pads and detonates near enemies

Olympus Map Changes

As Apex Legends continues to progress, the community has experienced several different maps, from Storm Point to World's Edge. But between the two, Olympus appeared during Season 7 and it was a hit with both casual and hardcore players alike.

After being out of the rotation since Season 11's start, Olympus is returning for Apex Legends Season 12. But it won't be the Oympus that Apex fans know and love as it's been changed thanks to Octane's Dad, Duardo Silva, and his schemes.

Olympus will also feature a new Phase Driver which can be interacted with for loot, objects around the map, and different POI locations as well.
