Seer is finally getting the nerf Apex Legends players thought was coming last year

Be gone, wall hack.

With Apex Legends’ season 17 hitting the live servers tomorrow, Respawn Entertainment published a new set of patch notes today for the impending update. Fans of the battle royale will be happy to know the notes address what was a rather controversial character interaction last year.

Catalyst arrived in the Apex Games with season 15 in November 2022, bringing a wall of ferrofluid to the bloodsport. Prior to the season’s launch, many expected Catalysts ultimate Dark Veil would directly counter Seer and his Exhibit, which revealed opponents moving in a wide area by highlighting them with diamond-shaped indicators. The Ambush Artist was, at the time, considered by the majority of the player base to be an oppressive pick for his wall-hack abilities that allowed players to see enemy locations through objects and buildings. But fansand even pro playerswere quickly disappointed when they discovered Seers ultimate still showed enemy whereabouts through Catalysts murky black veil.

Six months later, though, Apex fans are finally getting the interaction they originally hoped to see between the two characters. In todays patch notes, Catalyst received a slight buff to Dark Veil. Scan Highlights [and] Diamonds are no longer visible through the Dark Veil, the notes read.

That means the Ambush Artist will be doing a little less ambushing to those behind any ferrofluid wall. Seers Exhibit will no longer reveal enemy locations through Catalysts Dark Veil beginning in season 17.

In addition to this change, Respawn is introducing buffs to the games support class and a slew of bug fixes. Mirage, who was previously a Skirmisher, has joined the roster of Support legends. Previously, any Support legend could craft a respawn banner for their teammates. Now, however, anyone sharing a team with a Support has access to the perk.
