Apex Legends Update 13.1 Patch Notes

Apex Legends Season 13

All these patch notes are from official Electronic Arts website.

Lifeline Clinic

Welcome to Lifeline’s Clinic, a new place to heal and relax. This new state-of-the-art building sits between gardens and growth towers at the northeast corner of Mount Olympus.

In the center of the main floor of the clinic is the medical area. With it, Legendaries can take advantage of Outland’s most sophisticated auto-healing system. Whenever an injured Legendary stands on the platform, the healing tether activates and attaches to them. If the medical pod is charged, they will receive continuous treatment. Additionally, the Med-bay’s holographic display will indicate if someone is recovering, or if the Med-bay is charging.

If you want better loot, just head to the “emergency platform” in the back and use the care pack console located there. Make sure to get to it first, as you can only use the console once per game.

Control time-limited mode return

Control mode resumes during the Awakening Collection event, and this time, World’s Edge will join the rotation of Olympus and Stormpoint. If this will be your first time playing Control or it’s been a while, catch up on our blog explaining the popular mode here. Also, check out the new features we’ll be adding to Control during the Awakening Collection event:

  • Ad Drones are brought to Control for flavor and storytelling purposes, but yes, you can shoot them too.
  • Matchmaking Improvements – Fill missing player positions with new players at the start of control to prevent unbalanced matchmaking.

Apex Legends Update 13.1 enhancements and nerfs

Apex Legends Mobile Patch Notes

Any patch in Apex Legends will bring buffs and nerfs.

The leak suggests that Lifeline will be getting buffs from Respawn, which matches the aforementioned patch notes.

Player Osvaldatore shared information from the data-mining on Reddit, where they claimed that the focus of the patch will be on strengthening lifelines.

According to the leak, the following update is coming.

  • DOC Heal Drone health increased from 150 to 9999
  • DOC Heal Drone area reach radius doubled
  • Downed teammates can now opt out of combat revive’s automatic respawn
  • Reduced Care Pack cooldown from 5 minutes to 3 minutes 30 seconds

Respawn hasn’t confirmed this, so it’s worth taking these leaks with a pinch of salt.

We’ll update this page when we have official instructions.
