Apex Legends Season 7 brings buffs for Pathfinder but vaults Kings Canyon

The latest season of Apex Legends is just around the corner, so we've been given a hefty list of patch notes to sift through. Alongside the introduction of new character Horizon and map Olympus, we also have oodles of changes to existing Apex Legends characters, weapons, and maps. Pathfinder mains will be pleased to see that Respawn has had another stab at his rework. Pathfinder's grapple cooldown has been capped at 35 seconds so it shouldn't hit 45 anymore. You also don't need to hit the ground for the cooldown to start counting down, so you'll gain precious few seconds back. The amount of distance you can travel before you hit maximum cooldown has also been "roughly doubled". Previously you could rack up a huge cooldown just for swinging in or out of a slide. Sliding on your bum is one of the best things you can do in Apex, so the changes look good on paper. We are, sadly, saying goodbye to the Kings Canyon map. Olympus will be the only map we'll be able to play for two weeks, and after that World's Edge will enter the rotation. Kings Canyon is vaulted for the time being so we don't know when it's coming back just yet.
