Apex Legends leak reveals final LTM of Season 5

A fresh Apex Legends leak has revealed the final limited-time mode of season five and it looks to be yet another evolved LTM.

As the Apex Legends seasons have progressed, Respawn Entertainment have been dropping different limited-time does to give the battle royale a fresh twist. In the past, players have been able to play a third-person mode, Dummies Day Out, and even Déjà Loot.


In season five, we’ve had Armed and Dangerous given the evolved twist where respawn beacons are non-existent, there are no body shield tiers, and you’re limited to a selection of seven weapons that either shotguns or snipers. 

Though some leaks have suggested that the Shadowfall LTM could return and even a new one in the form of ‘Campfire’ but new leaks have pointed to the return of another previous mode getting the evolved twist. 

Shadowfall has been rumored to be returning as an Apex Legends LTM.

According to Reddit user novalue1998, a leaker on the ApexUncovered subreddit, the Always Be Closing LTM will be making its return as the final limited-time mode of season five, Fortune’s Favor.

As already noted, it wouldn’t be the normal Always Be Closing limited-time mode that was first available in Grand Soirée back in January of 2020 but with the evolved twist.

“The ring never stops closing. All players spawn with evolving armor,” reads the about description of the limited-time mode. “Keep on the move, the ring won’t slow down and you need to rack up some damage.”

Even though the leaker has been pretty reliable before, dishing out spoilers for the end of the Broken Ghost quest, it is worth taking the info with a pinch of salt until you can drop into a game of the LTM itself.

Respawn could very well shake things up and unleash something else – just like the Campfire LTM – before season five wraps up. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.


Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.


Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.


Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.

  • Crypto unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode
  • Moved Performance Display so it doesn’t overlap with Kill/Assists HUD element in Ranked
