Apex Legends Latest Update Nerfs Seer

Every Apex Legends player was basically dying to see this day. One overpowered Apex Legends character, Seer, is being nerfed to the ground. Balance changes were imminent, and everyone was more than confident that Seer would receive its nerf hammer sooner or later. Well, that day has come, and according to the patch notes, it feels like Seer is no longer in control of anything.

Seer’s Heartbeat passive ability is reduced to 75m distance, and his tactical ability triggers slower and can no longer damage opponents. The ambush artist will have a hard time designating his enemies. I guess there’s no room for an outcry now, and players can continue playing the game without worrying about Seer that much.

Without further ado, you can find all the Seer changes below:
