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 Rampart buff would make her unbeatable in early fights

An Apex Legends player has come up with an interesting buff concept for Rampart that would change her passive ability and immediately make her one of the best legends in the game.

When Rampart was first introduced at the start of Apex Legends Season 6, many fans raised eyebrows at her abilities – especially the mounted machine gun, Sheila, as it was something the game hadn’t seen before.

After her initial burst in popularity, the defensive legend has slowly slipped down the popularity standings. You’ll still see her in matches, of course, but she isn’t as well used as she previously was. 

That comes, in part, to the tweaks made to other leagues with the Season 7 update. Rampart wasn’t buffed as much as, say, Loba was and fans would like to see her given a boost – with some coming up with their own, interesting, concepts for a buff.

Rampart’s arrival in Apex Legends was succesful right away, but she’s fallen away since.

The new idea of which comes from Reddit user Fetzenschaedl, who instead of changing of Ultimate or Tactical, instead focused on the character’s passive. 

In Fetzenschaedl’s idea for a buff, Rampart’s passive would go one of two ways. Firstly, she could extend her additional ammo carrying capacity to other types rather than just focusing on LMGs and Heavy ammo.

However, in the other part – and this is where it gets really interesting – the Redditor suggests that Rampart could be able to pick up a weapon that uses a hop-up, and have a hop-up attached right away. Say you drop in and pick up a Wingman right away, it would have either Skullpiercing Rounds or Quickdraw attachment right away. 

Just some ideas because her current passive is not that great from apexlegends

The latter might seem incredibly powerful, but in terms of Loba’s character, it does make sense. She is all about upgrading and modifying weapons, after all. 

Yet, it might be a little too powerful for Respawn’s liking, especially as it’d make Loba a supremely powerful early game character. So, we’ll just have to wait and see as to what changes they cook up themselves.
