As we get closer to Season 2, Respawn continues to provide the Apex Legends community with little teasers and hints. Today, a silent update switched up a few things in Kings Canyon. The most noticeable change? Repulsor is online.
Wildlife intrusions into arena
The official Apex Legends twitter account posted the cryptic message you can see below a couple of hours ago. Apparently, the Repulsor tower has been in a state of disrepair for some time now. That explains how the flyers were able to intrude into the arena last week. Now repaired and amplified, according to the post, the Repulsor should start… repulsing again.

Apex Legends players were quick to notice the in-game effect of this message. The Repulsor tower, which until now was completely static, is now spinning slowly and emitting a low sound. As community theorists That1MiningGuy and FrozenFroh noted, this is likely part of the events which will lead into Season 2 of the game.
So let's take a second to talk about Repulsors(aka dogwhistles) these tools are IMC technology designed to keep local fauna from messing with IMC resources. They emit a high pitched signal that repulses (get it?) them. Ours has been off THIS WHOLE TIME. Now it's back on. 😉

According to the current consensus, the Repulsor tower will be sabotaged by as-of-yet unreleased legend Crypto. This would unleash larger and more dangerous lifeforms into Kings Canyon.
While Respawn has not commented on any of the community theories, lead producer Drew McCoy did tease the arrival of the Leviathans onto the island. This, along with Repulsor suddenly coming online, ties in with the speculations we have heard from theorists. After all, the Repulsor tower would have to be functioning in order to be sabotaged in the first place.
The second season of Apex Legends begins next week, on July 2. We will likely see more changes happening in Kings Canyon between now and then.
