Respawn is changing Firing Range by giving new features and a completely new makeover in Season 17. Let’s find out the exact changes Respawn has planned for the new Firing Range.

Since the launch of Apex Legends, the Firing Range has remained mostly the same with little to no change. Moreover, the former Firing Range lacked many functionalities preventing players from improving at the game.

Even the Apex Legends Mobile had a better Firing Range than the original version. To get better features, players had to opt-in for third-party aim trainers such as KovaaK’s and Flowstate.

Nonetheless, after 15 seasons, Respawn eventually heard the community feedback and made necessary upgrades to the Firing Range with the launch of Season 16 with many customization options and QoL improvements.

However, the changes were not enough to make everyone satisfied. So, Respawn has taken things one step further and completely changed the Firing Range with more features. Let’s find out the exact changes Respawn has announced so far.

Season 17 Firing Range Changes

The Firing Range has been completely re-designed with one core idea in mind: flow. We have expanded the space to give you more room to play. From a reorganized Core to a new Agility Course, Duel Pit, and POI sized town, this new space is built from the ground up for skill expression and skill development.

Core: a reorganized Weapons & Loot layout allows players to find what they’re looking for quickly and efficiently. Simulated death boxes allow you to grab your favorite loot from anywhere in the Range.

Agility Course: designed for mobility. Slide, zip, jump, climb, and balance to harden your movement skills.

Duel Pit: designed for you to duke it out with friends and finally settle the debate on who has the fastest Wingman in the Outlands.

Training Grounds: the rear town allows you to practice fighting in a simulated combat experience.

Customizable Dummies

Dummies can be configured to spawn, move, and shoot at players in a variety of ways. Change the settings to find the experience that best serves your needs. Turn on Full Combat mode to have the Dummies come to life and aggressively attack you all over the Firing Range!

Improved Targets

Infinitely shootable targets will light up different colors to give you feedback for where you hit them. Turn on Hit Markers in the Customize Range settings to learn shot patterns for the myriad of available weapons.

Improved Dynamic Stats

Dynamic Stats that track your performance in real-time can now be manually reset so you can use it in any manner you wish.
