Apex Legends’ level cap has been set at 100 since its release. However, it’s no secret that hardcore players have hit the cap a long time ago, giving them little incentive to keep on playing. Knowing this, Respawn Entertainment has responded by increasing the level cap many times over to 500.
Not only will the increased level cap give players more of a reason to play and grind, they’ll also receive more rewards on the way as well. For example, after getting an Apex Pack from level 2 to 20, players will get a pack every other level from then on up until level 300. Then, players will get one pack for free every five levels.
In total, this means that players will get around 199 Apex Packs for free just from playing and hitting the new level cap, 59 of which will come on your first 100 levels (versus the 45 players used to earn over the first 100 levels before).
Every level earned will still give you 600 Legend Tokens, which is great since you have 400 more levels to grind.
Also, in line with the changes, Respawn Entertainment will start retroactively rewarding Apex Packs to players based on the new system.
So, if you already maxed out at 100 in the past, you’ll get 14 more extra Apex Packs as soon as the system goes live.
Is It All Apex Packs?
No. Not at all. In addition to the extra Apex Packs, players will receive new weapon charms and level badges. Leveling up will also be easier from here on out as the total XP requirement will be reduced, which also means that returning players will find themselves earning a few free extra levels the next time they log in once the update goes up.
With these changes, players will get more rewards and get them sooner, with older players feeling rewarded for their previous efforts as well.
For those who are curious, the Apex Legends update is scheduled for December 3.
