Respawn Entertainment has announced that Apex Legends will be seeing some progression changes on December 3rd. Along with increasing the max player level cap from 100 to 500, the developer will also dole out more Apex Packs. Gun Charms will also be added into the core packs to provide even more customization for players.


To go along with the level cap increase, the overall XP required to hit level 100 has gone down by 5 percent. From level 2 to 20, one Apex Pack will be provided per level. From level 22 to 300, players will receive one pack for every two levels. At level 305 to 500, they’ll receive one pack per five levels. Any packs that should have been received with the new system will be retroactively provided to players.
