Apex Legends season 2 was released around two weeks ago, and it has taken the game to a whole new level. Along with some new cosmetic items and a weapon, the developers have also added a new character Wattson to the game. And now, it seems like this character has kind of revealed something interesting that might get added to Apex Legends soon.
Portable Respawn Beacons Confirmed by Wattson
Recently, a Twitter user who goes by the name “Shrugtal” revealed that portable respawn beacons are going to make their way to Apex Legends soon. The user discovered this through two Wattson’s lines, which say “Found a portable respawn beacon here,” and “I’m deploying a portable respawn beacon.” For those wondering, these voice lines were added to the game when season two was released.

Those who play Apex Legends are familiar with what respawn beacons are. They are located at different locations all over the map, and players can use them to bring their fallen teammate back to the match. However, one respawn beacon can be used only once, and nearby enemies are also alerted through the sound of the aircraft whenever you use it.
Will They Actually Arrive?
Now, while Respawn is yet to confirm whether this will happen or not, the chances for it to happen are really high. For those who don’t know, Apex Legends is the first battle royale game that has introduced the concept for respawns. So, considering the fact that the respawn system sets the game apart from other battle royale titles, Respawn Entertainment will want to enhance the system even further.
The Benefit of Portable Respawn Beacons
Most of the players are going to appreciate the addition of portable respawn beacons. Most of the times, whenever you use a respawn beacon, you have to find cover because nearby enemies are often alerted. In addition to this, the player who has been brought back from the dead also has to search for loot, which is sometimes not always present near the respawn beacon. However, if portable respawn beacons are introduced, then players will be able to use it a location of their preference.
In any case, we shouldn’t get too excited about them until Respawn Entertainment confirms this. Even if the developers are actually planning to add them to the game, we have to wait and see whether it will happen in this season or the next. However, there is still a lot of content planned to be added in the game during season 2, so let’s just hope that we see them soon.
Apex Legends season 2 went live on July 2 and is currently expected to end in late September or early October. Fans are currently enjoying the new season as it has taken the game to a whole new level. Once this season is over, the next one will start which is going to be even better than the current one.
