A new season of Apex Legends means a variety of changes to the meta. For those interested in these changes, here’s every buff & nerf for Legends and weapons coming in the Apex Legends Season 15 update.

The Apex Legends Season 15 update is bringing a heap of new content to the battle royale game, including a brand-new map in Broken Moon, a new Legend in Catalyst, and a new cosmetic item in Stickers.

With every seasonal update for Apex Legends, players are expecting to see some balance changes for Legends and weapons. However, Apex Legends Season 15 only brings changes to the weapons, leaving the Legends as they are for this update.

With that said, here are all of the balance changes included in the Apex Legends Season 15 patch notes.
