Apex Legends leaks have revealed when the popular Always Be Closing LTM will return along with some new features that Respawn apparently has planned for the limited-time mode.

Respawn has introduced plenty of limited-time modes in Apex Legends, which add some unique twists to the battle royale’s standard gameplay experience.

One such LTMs is ‘Always be Closing’, a game mode where the safe zone constantly shrinks from the moment you drop in, and has been leaked to return as Season 5’s final game mode.

When will Always Be Closing LTM return?

Apex Legends leakers have now revealed just when the fan-favorite LTM, which boasts fast-paced action, will arrive and the new features that will likely be added.

Reliable Apex data miner Shrugtal shared that Always Be Closing is scheduled to release on August 11, but also said that it will be coming back as an ‘Evolved’ game mode.

As seen with the latest Armed and Dangerous playlist, the Evolved modes spawn players in with Evo Armor that can be upgraded and removes all Blue, Purple and Gold armor from the game.

The Apex leaker also released a video on even more changes that could be added to the LTM, revealing that more teasers for the leaked Season 6 character, Rampart, will likely be added around this time.

“The Rampart teasers should be in full swing by this time, which means that the paintball hop-up, otherwise known as the ‘Graffiti Mod,’ will be available in this game mode for the spitfire,” shrugtal added.

This paintball hop-up, which has previously been leaked, is expected to potentially give the Spitfire 25% faster reload speed and 63 round mag for the spitfire, making it the weapon of choice for this LTM.

It was also revealed that the Spitfire, this new hop-up, and heavy ammo would have significantly increased spawn rates in the game mode, making them much easier to find around the map.

As with all leaks, Respawn has not yet confirmed any of the details and can still make changes ahead of this game mode’s expected return on August 11.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
