Apex Legends has been a runaway success for developer Respawn Entertainment since launching at the start of 2019.

The squad-based shooter is currently deep into its first season of content, but that doesn't mean there isn't more work to be done.

Respawn has just released a brand new update for the game this evening, together with patch notes for the new v1.1.1 update.

This is for all players across all platforms and it should be available to download tonight.

The majority of changes are dedicated towards balancing both legends and weapons. For instance, Caustic's Gas Damage is getting a buff in today's update, whilst Two snipers, the G7 Scout and the Longbow DMR, are also being buffed.

There are plenty of changes to get through, so read on for the full official patch notes.
