Apex Legends update notes: Battle Pass bonus with PS4 and Xbox 1.1.1 patch notes

Today’s Apex Legends update notes have confirmed everything that the new 1.1.1 build includes.

PS4, PC and Xbox One and players should be receiving the build right now, which includes plenty of changes.

There’s no new content to speak of; fans will have to wait a little longer before any new Apex Characters are added to the game.

However, we do know about all the significant balance tweaks that have been made today on all platforms.

And we also know that Respawn has put together another Battle Pass bonus for fans to enjoy.

“In honour of Thicc-boi buffs, we’re going to be running a bonus Battle Pass XP event.

“From approximately 10 AM PST 4/16 through approximately 10AM PST 4/18, your first Top 5 of the day (your squad places 5th or better in a match) will grant you 1 full bonus Battle Pass Level (29,500 BPP), up to a max of level 110. You can earn this once per day.

“We’ll also be finding other moments during the season to add Battle Pass XP bonuses, so stay tuned.”

Respawn has also provided a disclaimer with today’s Apex Legends update notes, confirming that plenty more bugfixes are on the way.

“Before we get to the notes, we know there are some ongoing issues that have been frustrating you folks that didn’t make it into this patch.

“We are actively working on many improvements and we’re aware of the reports around audio issues, slow-mo servers, hit registration, and more.

“I’ll provide more info when I can but know that we hear you folks and working hard to address this stuff. For 1.1.1 we’re introducing some balance adjustments for Legends and weapons.”

You can find the full list of Apex Legends changes being made today via the patch notes listed below:


Starting with Patch 1.1.1, Gibraltar and Caustic will get a new perk added to their passive – Fortified, which reduces damage taken by 10%. Over the week or two following this change, we will be watching how they perform with this additional protection and aggressively tune it if they are still underpowered relative to their size. Our goal is to ensure both Legends are viable picks by the end of this process.

Additionally, we’re also making a few quality of life kit adjustments to ensure their marquee abilities are a more impactful part of their individual playstyles.


  • Fortified Passive Perk added: reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Gas Damage per tick increased: 1 -> 4
  • Ultimate Throw distance increased: 28 meters -> 33 meters


  • Fortified Passive Perk added: reduces damage taken by 10%
  • Gun Shield health increased: 50 -> 75
