Each class will have its own unique perk, and new buffs and nerfs will be implemented to help balance the game further. More info will become available when the patch notes for the Revelry Update are released.
Since February is the anniversary month for Apex Legends, the team will be celebrating with a slew of in-game rewards including login rewards. Also, each map in the rotation will have special decorations to mark the occasion. The team also hints that there will be a surprise in store for Apex Legends fans…

Additionally, a new weapon will be introduced with the Revelry Update: the Nemesis Burst Rifle. Also returning from previous seasons will be the Rampage Light Machine Gun, and the Volt Submachine Gun and Longbow DMR will be craft-able on the Replicator.
