Respawn Entertainment have started to slowly drop hints for what may come in Apex Legends Season 6, and here’s where you’ll find all the brand new teasers as they release in the game.

It’s a special time for the Apex community. Respawn’s transitions from one season to the next are generally filled with sly hints and interesting additions to the Apex Arena that clue in players for what may come in the following months.

This time around, the teasers started a bit early for players paying attention to the Broken Ghost questline, which was filled with episodic missions each leading up to the big reveal of a Titanfall 2 character that could play a major role in Season 6.

We also got an idea for the next location of the Apex Games, which could take people to Olympus on Psamathe. And as more teasers come filing in, there’s bound to be new discoveries along the way.

Respawn have set up a few different narratives to explore in Season 6 and beyond.

When is Apex Legends Season 6 coming?

The anticipation for the upcoming season is real, as it looks like many secrets of the Apex Games are on the cusp of being revealed. Respawn has yet to confirm the official release date of Season 6, but going by past metrics to calculate the end of the current era, the likeliest time would be on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

Teaser 1: Hammond Robotics sites

Dispersed throughout World’s Edge, people can find huge banners that show Hammond Robotics ‘Future Worksite’ banners centralized on the Drill Site point of interest as well as the area west of The Dome.

On the Drill Site, there are five total banners that can be found, while four of them are set up in the lava-filled terrain next to The Dome. There are also land survey beacons on both sites that, once activated, show Hammond Robotics signs similar to the ones that preceded the enormous Harvester.

It remains to be seen if we’re also going to get Harvesters here too, but whatever the case, the corporation’s presence on World’s Edge could increase even more as the events of Season 6 unfold.

Teaser 2: Rocket thruster on a crane

The second teaser on the agenda only showed a single piece of a rocket that looks like a single, albeit large, thruster.

To get a look at it for yourself head over to the south side of the Sorting Factory where there’s an orange crane with the new teaser suspended in mid-air. Though there isn’t much to go off of, this could be the first stages of a transportation vessel that our Legends will take to make it to the far off world of Psamathe.

When Respawn introduced World’s Edge for the first time, we got a brief glimpse of the dropship peering out of the dense clouds for the new locale. This could be a situation similar to that, in that Respawn is showing us the first images of how we’re going to get to the next Apex Arena.

Teaser 3: Rocket engine moved

Teaser 4: ‘All Hail Sheila!’ signs

Things took a sinister turn on August 5 for the fourth teaser, which came in the shape of cryptic spray-painted signs that read “All Hail Sheila.” While we obviously don’t know who Sheila is or what these signs mean, previously-datamined info suggests they could be a teaser for the upcoming Legend, Rampart.

According to a video put out by prominent leaker Shrugtal, Rampart is actually a female character whose first name is Sheila, which would explain the nature of these mysterious signs.

But that’s not the only thing this teaser is for: it also gives fans the first official in-game look at what sprays could look like once they’re added to Apex Legends. Their exact release date hasn’t been confirmed, but leaks point to Respawn adding a new feature that’ll allow players to paint the map with pre-set decals, similar to other games.

Crypto’s sister teaser saga

While all this is going on, there’s more lore appearing to bud involving Crypto and his long-lost sister Mila Alexander, who many believed to be dead. Not too long ago, Mila reached out to the Surveillance Expert to not only reveal that she’s alive, but to also relay a message that could have something to do with the upcoming season.

The message was split into three parts and played within the various loot bunkers that have recently opened on Kings Canyon, decipherable only by Crypto’s drone, and it’s clear that the two are in deep trying to navigate a conspiracy that revolves around the Apex Games and one central figure that is behind it all.

Apex Legends teaser schedule

Now that the gears are turning and Season 6 is on the horizon, dataminers have been shuffling through Apex Legends’ backend files for any new information for the game.

While leakers are holding back important story elements so that players can experience them without spoilers, a schedule for when teasers should be coming out has been shared by prominent leaker Shrugtal.

People should keep a close eye on Respawn’s sites and the overall Apex map on those dates to see what the studio added in wait for the new season.

What to expect in Apex Legends Season 6?

By this time, Apex fans should be well aware that Respawn is no slouch when it comes to introducing new ways for their players to experience the battle royale.

If the teasers so far have been any indication, people can expect the devs to move forward a few different storylines at the same time. The first would be the Loba’s mission to put an end to the Synthetic Nightmare’s consciousness to finally leave him dead.

And now we also know that Ash is going to be a figure, in some capacity, in the Apex Games. But this is all, presumably, going to happen on Psamathe, which is far off from the boundaries of World’s Edge.

Respawn Entertainment
There’s going to be a few storylines playing out in Apex Legends from here on out.

Hammond Robotics will have a stronger presence on World’s Edge soon. This could mean that an LTM, special event, or new quest line could come out of this development while the main game takes place on Psamathe.

With Kings Canyon getting new updates in Season 5, players may have end up with three different regions and maps they’ll be able to enjoy, which would obviously keep each one from going stale.

Whatever the next teasers reveal, it’s an exciting time to be an Apex Legends player and it’ll be fun to see where Respawn take their expansive story from here.

Best Legends to use in Winter Express LTM in Apex Legends

Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM is chugging along as a part of the Holo-Day Bash event, but if you’ve never dropped in and want some tips on which legends to use, we’ve got you covered. 

With the Holo-Day Bash event returning for the 2020 holiday season, Respawn Entertainment have also brought back the Winter Express limited-time mode. Though, some fans criticized them for “recycling modes, this year’s iteration does include some interesting changes.

The mode is completely different from the typical battle royale gameplay you’re used to in Apex. Your team has to take control of the train that used to chug its way around World’s Edge – all while dealing with preset loadouts and enemies who are contesting for control. Plus, there are a few issues with friendly fire now, too. 

As it’s so different, your usual main Legend might not be as useful here, so here are a few tips and the best characters to use, to help you pick up more wins.

Winter Express is back, and its as enjoyable as ever.

In terms of the best Legends to use, you may have to switch things up from who you would usually use in the battle royale mode. For example, Lifeline is great in duos/trios, but she’s not really needed in Winter Express as her healing abilities are rather useless here.

Caustic is probably the best legend to use, given that his gas is an absolute killer in the tight spaces. Similarly, Rampart’s amped walls are useful too, especially if you’re camping the train. 

Wraith, as always, is a stellar choice because her portal can get you out of a sticky situation – of which there are plenty in Winter Express. Additionally, Crypto and Wattson are good choices. Crypto because the drone can be used to auto-scan enemies, while Wattson’s interception pylon nullifies everyone’s stack of grenades.

Best Legends for Winter Express LTM

Don’t head right for the train

While the name of the game is capturing the train, that doesn’t have to mean you need to land there. You can easily land just off to the side for a cleaner start to looting, and then work your way over. 

Plus, if you do so, you can annoy enemies who try to capture it right away by disrupting their progress on the capture. 

Additionally, if you are going for the train, it’s best to attack from the front. Players will be expecting attacks from the side and the back, but the front is often forgotten about. So, use it to your advantage. 


Of course, you might have your own tactics for dominating the LTM, but there are some general tips everyone can follow, which you can find right here

The Winter Express and Holo-Day Bash event are set to run for another month, until January 4, so you’ve got plenty of time to hone your skills and pick up wins.
