Apex Legends Seer Nerf Patch Notes

Apex Legends has finally received an update that will be nerfing the character Seer into a place that will hopefully be more balanced!

A new patch is being released for Apex Legends that brings a much needed balancing to the new Seer character. Seer has been a cause of quite a bit of controversy due to their perceived overpowered nature in the game. While this patch appears to be a step in the right direction, many players don’t feel that it’s enough of a nerf to bring the character’s power level into what would be considered a balanced state.

Seer’s ability to throw micro-drones into an area and not only reveal enemy players but also interrupt them is extremely powerful. Not only can you spot your targets, but if they are trying to heal they are prevented from doing so, which makes this ability very difficult to play around.

The balance has reduced the ping interval, which should allow players to have a better chance of escaping view. The field of view was also reduce, and the watch range changed. Seer’s ultimate has also had its cooldown increased, which should hopefully help even things out.

Here’s a look at the changes for Seer in Apex Legends:

Seer Changes


  • Increased wait time between sensor spikes for full HP targets (1.25s to 1.75s)
  • Removed center circle ellipses
  • Reduced range beyond 75m (blue spikes)
  • Reduced field of view


  • Increased detonation delay from 1.4s to 1.6s
  • Players hit are no longer damaged or flashed. Screen shake from being hit is also reduced
  • Move slow added while holding tactical
  • Lowered volume on audio
  • Fixed tactical FX being visible in firing range when it’s not supposed to be


  • Increase cooldown from 90s to 120s
  • Lowered volume on audio


  • Fixed several errors related with Seer
  • Adjusted volume of voice lines that play when Seer is chosen

Other Fixes

  • Fixed a problem caused by Climatizer FX (“No existing effect for handle” error)
  • Fixed an issue with challenges (“Array index -1 is out of range”)
  • Fixed most instances of Legends “holding a grenade” when they have none in their inventory (Wattson still suffers from this in some rare cases)
  • Fixed an error with using multiple grenades on explosive holds (a following update later today will cause explosive holds to spawn closed again)
  • Switch: Fixed Holospray display
