The next Apex Legends mission in the Broken Ghost quest has arrived. This time, players will be fighting their way through Kings Canyon in the new “A Legend Falls” mission ⁠— here’s how to finish the second Season 5 PvE challenge.

‘The Broken Ghost’ has changed Apex forever in Season 5. Respawn’s hugely-popular title once simply followed the usual battle royale formula of dropping players into an arena to fight until they were the last one standing.

In Season 5, there’s more to the game than that. Players are now tasked with battling against enemy AI hordes in story-based missions, as they learn more about Loba’s quest to take her revenge against simulacrum assassin Revenant.

Every quest, or “hunt” as Apex Legends calls them, is fairly simple: drop into Kings Canyon, kill a stack of enemies, get the mission reward (usually an artifact) and get the heck out of there before you die. Week 1 was a big success.

This time around, Respawn has upped the ante. Apex Legends fans now have to beat even more enemies, while racing a 10-minute timer, to earn the story’s next cutscene. Here’s how to beat the “A Legend Falls” mission.

How to complete the Broken Ghost “A Legend Falls” mission

Step 1 ⁠— “Eliminate Hostiles”

Apex players will land on top of The Cage armed with a Triple Take sniper rifle, and a spare P2020 pistol just in case things get hairy. Below, four Prowlers are attacking the bunker ⁠— pop them with your rifle to get started.

Once you’ve defeated these enemies, the road should be clear for you to head towards the real setting for the new Broken Ghost quest: the bunker.

Step 2 ⁠— Attempt to save Wattson

Once you’ve flexed your top-tier sniping talents on the poor Prowlers below, you can move to the bunker. There are a few more scaly enemies waiting for you here, and the bunker is covered in Wattson’s electric defense fences.

Kill these enemies, and clear the fences away to access the bunker. Inside you’ll find a downed Wattson hiding behind one of her fences. Break that fence, and wait for her to die (you won’t be able to save her) to activate the next stage.

Once Wattson gives up the ghost, she’ll drop a loot box. Make sure you dig through this, even if it feels a little sad, because she will usually drop a rare Golden helmet for you. Equip this new loot, then head downstairs into the hangar.

Step 3 ⁠— Activate the panels, clear the bunker

Once you arrive in the hangar, you’ll get a new objective: “Open Exit: 0/3 Panels Activated.” There’ll be a bit more fighting as you descend into the bunker, considering there are a few more Prowlers waiting for you here too.

Defeat these beasts, then head to the door off to the right side of the stairs. Crack open the door ⁠— you’ll need to smash it wide open ⁠— and kill the Prowlers waiting to ambush you on the other side. The first panel is also here.

Activate the first panel (1/3) and scoop up the epic purple armor hidden here too. Turn straight around from the panel and head across the room to the lower area of the hangar. The last two panels are here.

Activate all three panels hidden around the bottom of the bunker to proceed.

One is located down the left-side split, along with an angry Prowler. Leave this one for now and go right. Here you’ll find the next panel (2/3), a golden R-301, and a Prowler. Tick that off, then head back down the left side with your new gun (3/3).

With all three panels ticked off, you should get the final ‘A Legend Falls’ objective: “Dig up the hidden artifact”. Break the final Wattson fence that you find deep in the bunker, and leave the underground building and its Prowlers behind.

Step 4 ⁠— Claim the second Broken Ghost artifact

Once outside, head to the objective marker that should have appeared on your screen. Place the digger tool you have there with the “Deploy Drill” action. You’ll immediately get a warning from Bangalore that there are “hostiles approaching.”

This is the final wave of defense in the Broken Ghost mission. Prowlers should keep attacking your position for around a minute before the artifact is actually ready to be collected. Be prepared for a bit of a fight at this point.

When the artifact is ready to go, you’ll get another message from Bangalore telling you that it’s definitely “time to go”. Grab the artifact, and be ready for a sprint. Your drop ship arrives 100 meters away. Run to it, and end the mission.

Broken Ghost Chapter 2 cutscene: “The Detached Chaperone”

Once you finish the “A Legend Falls” mission, you will be given access to the next cutscene in the Season 5 storyline. It’s all text-based, but it tells the story of the Apex cast caring for Wattson after she was injured in Mission 2.

The story is told from Wraith’s perspective as the roster deals with the fallout from Wattson being injured. While many are concerned for the French hero, new Season 5 legend Loba is less worried. This causes tension in the camp.

Her disregard for the injured legend sets Caustic off. He grabs the Translocating Thief by the neck and pins her against the wall, before threatening to make sure Loba “begs for death” if Wattson doesn’t survive her recovery.

The next Broken Quest mission is expected to arrive next week. The third entry in the Season 5 series will be titled “The Liberated Narc”. It will likely be told from Octane’s perspective.

So far, the new weekly player-vs-environment campaign has been well received. Respawn has clearly taken notice of that too ⁠— the devs maybe adding a Titanfall-themed questline next, including Titans, Pilots, wall-running, and more.

10 tips and tricks for dominating new Winter Express LTM in Apex Legends

There is a new Limited Time Mode called Winter Express in Apex Legends’ returning Holo-Day Bash event, and we’ve got 10 tips and tricks to help you dominate matches.

Launching on December 1 and running through until January 4, the Holo-Day Bash in-game event adds a lot of holiday-themed content in Apex Legends, one of which is the Winter Express LTM.

As you can probably guess from the name, Winter Express puts all of the focus on the in-game train, which was decked out in holiday decorations for this in-game event.

How does Winter Express LTM work?

In each match, three teams of three players each face off against each other with the objective of capturing the train.

The train can be captured in one of two ways – either by filling out the capture bar without being contested by enemies or being the last team alive. The match ends when one of the teams manages to capture the train three times.

There are, however, some aspects of this mode that are different from how regular Apex matches go:

  • Players spawn in with a pre-determined loadout of weapons and items, which are different for each Legend. Loadouts change on a daily basis.
  • Respawning is enabled. Once a player is eliminated, they can join back.
  • The radius of the train’s patch is reduced so that players are never too far from the action.
Respawn EntertainmentHow the new Winter Express LTM works.

10 tips and tricks for Winter Express LTM

1. Find the best loadout available

Each Legend has its own pre-determined loadout, so make sure to check them all out to find the one with the best and most powerful combination of weapons and items.

For a mode like this, prioritize the loadout over your preferred Legend of choice, because having a better setup is more important.

2. Mix and match attachments with teammates

Attachments can be dropped in this mode, so it would be a good idea to strategize with teammates and swap attachments to maximize all of the weapons’ potentials.

For example, the EVA-8 shotgun comes with a red-dot sight that would be of better use on another gun, or moving an extended mag to a Devotion LMG to turn it into a death machine.

Respawn EntertainmentEach Legend has their own Loadout, so make sure to scout them and pick the strongest one.

3. Use the Lifeline’s Care Package to get better loot

The Lifeline’s Care Package Ultimate Ability can be activated in this LTM, which means you and your team might end up getting access to powerful items that aren’t normally available, such as purple armor or thermal scopes.

4. Don’t forget about unlimited heals

For whatever reason, whether because of a glitch or intentional design, you have unlimited heals in this mode, even though your healing inventory will indicate only one syringe and one shield cell.

Make sure to take advantage of this feature because it can really make a difference between staying alive and getting eliminated.

5. You don’t have to land on the train

Most players’ initial instinct in this mode will be to land directly on the train, which is why a good strategy would be not to. Instead, aim to land on high structures near the train and pick off enemies from there.

Remember, there are three teams all fighting against each other, so you can always third party enemy players by getting the high ground and shooting at them away from the train.

Respawn EntertainmentUse Lifeline’s Care Package to gain access to better loot, like purple armor.

6. Stay close enough to stop teams from capturing

While not landing on the train right away is a good move, it’s also important to not be too far away from the action. If one of the two other teams gains control, it’s imperative that you and your team are close enough to jump down and contest the capture, otherwise you will lose the round.

7. Ditch the train after winning a round

In line with the last tip, it’s always a good idea to get off the train as soon as you win a round because most players spawning back in will go straight for it.

Treat the start of each round like a new match – aim for the high ground so that you can pick off gung-ho players who aggressively go for the train.

8. Attack from the front

Most players who are on the train will expect to be attacked from either of the two sides or the back, but never the front. They also forget that the front side of the train is now open.

This is why it’s a good strategy to land in front of the train, albeit a good distance away, and make your way towards it, shooting at the enemies on board who will most likely be looking the wrong way.

Respawn EntertainmentYou don’t always have to land on the train when spawning into a Winter Express match.

9. Play the stalemate game if necessary

When finding yourself in a situation where winning a round is too difficult to manage, focus your efforts on making sure the two other teams don’t either

Remember, each round is timed, and when the timer hits zero and no one’s captured the train, the next round starts. Sometimes the best play is to make sure no one captures by the time that happens.

10. Multi-task with jump pads

In order to help players reach the train quickly, a bunch of jump pads were placed at various points on the tracks. You can use these not only to get to the train quickly but also to reach certain areas of the map, especially high ground, positioning yourself to take down enemies below.

Furthermore, when using these jump pads, you are actually afforded enough time to pop a shield cell, so you can definitely save time by doing so.
