Update: Respawn has patched this method of earning the 20-kill badge, meaning you’ll have to earn it the hard way, by actually killing 20 other live players.

The tips below still apply to killing normal players in the Shadowfall LTM, but you won’t be able to use them on the Shadow Squad now.

The new limited-time mode in Apex Legends has provided a far simpler method to attain one of the more difficult badges in the game.

Released into the world of Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends on October 15 and available until November 5, the Fight or Fright Collection Event introduced a plethora of new content.

From spooky cosmetics to all new challenges and even the limited-time Shadowfall mode. This new mode puts 35 solo players in a night-time version of Kings Canyon to do battle with a unique twist.

Upon being eliminated in the Shadowfall mode, players respawn an infinite number of times as a shadow. While shadows are unable to use abilities or fire their weapons, they have increased movement speed and ridiculous melee power that allows them to threaten the remaining survivors. 

With only 50HP once in the shadow realm, Apex Legends players have discovered a considerably easier method of acquiring the rare 20-kill badges.

One of the more challenging badges in the game, finding 20 kills in a single match was no easy feat for the majority of the Apex player-base, but this new limited-time mode has provided a much simpler path.

Eliminating shadows counts among the 20 kills, and with only 50HP per shadow, it has become much easier to acquire the once-elusive badges.

If you make it to the final 10 survivors, the objective switches and tasks you with making it to an evac ship to flee the area. Throughout this period, 25 other players are weak shadows that will all be crowded in close proximity to the ship.

As demonstrated by Reddit user ‘gmoneydab,’ saving grenades and arc stars to spam at the sea of shadows can net you plenty of eliminations with relative ease.

While certain fans are upset at just how easily attainable one of the more challenging badges in the game has now become, it is worth keeping in mind that the limited-time mode will soon disappear on November 5.

Here’s a look at every new skin and cosmetic item available throughout the Fight or Fright event.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix coming for frustrating Season 7 Clubs bug

The Apex Legends community has been encountering a bizarre bug that’s randomly kicking people out of their Club, even if they were the one to create the group in the first place – and Respawn is on the case.

The hyped Season 7 feature finally let Apex players initiate randos into recurring squadmates by inviting them into the social hub for friends. This was integrated for the purposes of growing communities and making teams easier to fill.

But now, some Club creators are getting kicked out of their own group and even finding that the guilds they made are getting deactivated with little explanation to account for.

While Clubs can get instantly deleted if they’re found with inappropriate names or the like, players have been reporting no such infractions while still getting ousted from their org.

Got removed from my own club that i created? my friend who is admin was not even online in the past few hours. and cant find any club if i click find club. Other clubs got deleted aswell? from apexlegends

“My club was up since Season 7 dropped,” user ‘IIIOxygenRSC’ wrote. “No offensive name or tag, no offensive text chat, usernames or anything. Logged onto apex today with a notification that said my club had been deleted by club admins. Anyone else or any idea why?”

It’s been happening more to different people, prompting Respawn Entertainment to take a closer look at what could be causing the problematic trend.

Clubs Designer at Respawn, Chad Armstrong gave a little comfort to people who’ve been dealing with the glitch: “Thanks for letting me know. We’re looking into this now.”

Now that the developers are on the case, it could soon lead to a meaningful fix to why people are getting met with a random ‘Exited Club’ notification as soon as they log into the game.

“Several players are reporting that they were removed from their club by the admins, even if THEY were the admins,” The Dot’s Pedro Peres said. “This is probably a major bug with Apex and I know Respawn will push out a fix for it ASAP.”

Though his incident was quickly resolved, more players have been wondering if that would be the case with them as well.

The Apex devs could be working on a speedy fix for Clubs to make sure their new Season 7 feature is working without a hitch.
