The Gaiden Thematic event is arriving in Apex Legends in the upcoming patch and it’s adding the Armed & Dangerous LTM, a Bangalore Prestige skin, and countless unique cosmetics.

Apex Legends Saviors is coming to a close, and with Season 14 on the horizon, the major update is expected to arrive in early August.

Despite this, the last three months have been packed with new content for the community to enjoy, including the Heroic Defender Newcastle, a new POI on Storm Point, and the Awakening Collection event that took place back in June.

Luckily, Respawn still has another patch planned for Season 13 in the form of the Gaiden Thematic event.

With the Armed and Dangerous LTM returning, a new Prestige skin for Bangalore, and plenty of unique cosmetics, this is an update that you don’t want to miss.

Armed and Dangerous LTM

Get ready to arm yourself with shotguns and snipers, as the Armed and Dangerous LTM is returning to Apex Legends.

A fan-favorite mode from back in the day, competitors can only use snipers and shotguns leading to chaotic gunfights and encounters.

The action will take place on World’s Edge, Olympus, and Storm Point. On top of this, the Kraber and Mastiff will be craftable on certain days according to leaks, so be ready to rush to the Replicators.

Bangalore Prestige skin
