Quality of Life Improvements
The Apex Legends update has introduced several quality of life improvements to make the gameplay experience more comfortable and convenient.

In the Gun Run mode, players can now be any team, and the odds of becoming Team Nessie have been increased, with Team Nessie now viewable for all teams.
Another quality of life improvement is the new indicator on HUD unit frames for the Ratings Leader in Control, which adds more transparency to the game. Consumables now show a progress bar for teammates next to their unit frame on the HUD, and damage has been added to the scoreboard in Control. Additionally, the minimum distance between airdropped replicators and other airdrops has been increased.
The Full Map feature has also been updated to reflect currently selected Class Perk info. The Hot Zone map feature description is removed from the Full Map while the Hot Zone is hidden from the map. When in Firing Range, players now regain full health and shields when they reselect their legend in the legend select menu. Another convenient update is the ability to ping for an optic even if the optic attachment slot is filled.
The update has also fixed several bugs and issues to improve the overall gameplay experience. For example, the bug that caused Crypto’s drone reticle not to be centered when on 16:10 resolutions has been fixed, and players can now emote even if they were dead during the champion sequence. In Control, the issue where the MRB disappears if the player holding it leaves the match has been fixed.
Various UI bugs and improvements to the private match flow have also been fixed, and several bug fixes to cosmetic items have been made. The bug that caused the weapon camera in the Loadouts tab not to reset to the correct position when exiting a weapon from the Charms subtab has been fixed, and the footer buttons in the seasonal quest are now clickable.
In conclusion, the latest Apex Legends update has brought several quality of life improvements, bug fixes, and changes to the gameplay to enhance the overall experience. The size of the update might be massive, but the update has added features that make the game more transparent, convenient, and user-friendly. Apex Legends Season 16 is already promising to be one of the most exciting seasons yet, and the latest update is a significant step towards that promise.
