Apex Legends Season 14 Brings Massive Changes To Battle Pass Challenges


Nicholas ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has spoken about the Valkyrie nerfs to the Apex Legends Season 14 update, saying the legend will always dominate.

Apex Legends Season 14 is looking to shake up the meta with huge buffs for Mad Maggie and a host of legend and weapon changes that were mentioned in the patch notes.

On top of that, players will also get a brand new legend in Vantage, which might spice things up as well. One of the biggest nerfs of Season 14 is for Valkyrie, who dominated the pick rates and competitive scene in Season 13.

Despite the pretty brutal nerfs, NICKMERCS still believes the legend will be very strong in season 14.

During the stream, NICKMERCS went through the Apex Legends Season 14 patch notes to analyze all the changes coming in the update.

As the streamer played a decent amount of Valkyrie in Apex, the nerfs she received definitely caught the streamer’s attention. While most in the community have raved about how big the nerfs are, NICKMERCS still thinks Valkyrie will be dominant.

Looking at the Valkyrie nerf, Nick said the changes are “a lot cooler” than he thought. Ultimately, NICKMERCS believes that Valkyrie will continue to be strong despite the nerfs, as she still has the ability to scan the beacon and find the next ring in Apex Legends Season 14:

“She still has a tag which is huge, it still makes her playable.”

That said, Nick feels that the nerfs to his passive jetpack are the biggest and that these changes are sure to have an impact: “His Ult has been nerfed, his Q has been nerfed and the jets, the jets have been nerfed the most.” ”

On Valkyrie’s jet nerf, NICKMERCS goes on to say that “you don’t have that much fuel and every time you use your fuel it takes a lot more. If you get hit while flying it slows you down a bit, I mean it was very touched.

That said, NICKMERCS ends by saying that Valkyrie “still has a beacon”, showing why he thinks she’ll still be strong despite huge nerfs to her kit.


We’ll have to wait and see how much these nerfs affect Valkyrie once players hang out with the new Apex Legends Season 14 update. For now, check out the much-requested quality of life change coming to the season 14.
