While Respawn introduces the majority of the new content to Apex Legends in big seasonal updates that arrive every three months, the devs also implement smaller balance changes on a regular basis.

Although these updates rarely include any fresh additions, they usually aim to improve the overall gameplay experience for players with balance changes, bug fixes, and quality-of-life alterations.

Well, the May 22 update is certainly no different, with the patch fixing an issue with Wraith, improving Catalyst’s Ultimate wall and altering the way World’s Edge looks.

So, without further ado, let’s break down all the changes that came with the Apex Legends May 22 patch notes.

The Apex Legends May 22 patch notes may not be a long list, but some of the changes have been heavily requested by the community. This is especially true for Catalyst’s wall, which for a long time has been nullified by Seer’s Ultimate, allowing him and his entire to see through the barrier.

Now that this isn’t the case, it’s possible we see a lot more Catalyst in Ranked and pro play, as her wall can be an extremely useful tool in the hands of a skilled player.

As for the other changes, Respawn has fixed a bug which allowed Wraith to use weapons after being knocked and they’ve tweaked the brightness of the World’s Edge map. You can check out the full list of changes below:

  • Wraith can no longer use weapons while knocked
  • Brightness on World's Edge has been adjusted
  • Seer can no longer track through Dark Veil with his Ultimate
