Apex Legends Season 6 Crafting System: Everything We Know About Gear Upgrades So Far

Apex Legends is about to kick off Season 6 on August 18th, and there's a whole new crafting system coming.

Alongside new hero Rampart (herself a weaponsmith), and a new weapon, players will be able to modify their looted weapons mid-match.

Here's all we know.

Apex Legends Crafting System Coming In Season 6

As noted on EA's Apex Legends website, the season will introduce Crafting.

"Don't like your gear? Collect materials around the map and build something better!"

The page also says "If you can't loot it -- build it. Discover new pathways to victory in Season 6 – and show them what you're made of."

In the latest gameplay trailer, we see a squad finding materials and putting them into a "Replicator".

Will you craft offensive or defensive items?

This allows them to essentially build weapons on the fly, but also new items, too.

As you can see from the screenshot, there's a weapon, attachment, and healing and shield items up for grabs, each with a varying material cost.

Some even suggest that they are part of a daily or weekly rotation.

Presumably, players will be at risk of being attacked while using the replicator, so while there are three control panels on it, it might be worth someone keeping guard.

I dropped out of Apex Legends at around Season 2, but with the game coming to Steam and Switch, and offering cross-play in the coming months, I'm very tempted to jump back in.
