Respawn Entertainment revealed the Lost Treasures collection event for Apex Legends during the EA Play livestream on June 18. The event is set to include the Crypto Town Takeover, the “Armed and Dangerous Evolved” limited-time mode, and more!

EA confirmed Apex’s next in-game event will take place between June 23 to July 7, and will be bringing the most content we’ve seen in Season 5 yet. This time around, there’s stacks to look forward to. The “Armed and Dangerous Evolved” LTM headlines the Lost Treasures event, and sees players do battle across Kings Canyon armed only with shotguns and sniper rifles.

Respawn has also unveiled new details on Crypto’s Town Takeover, which will be debuting in the upcoming collection event. The new point of interest will be called “Crypto’s Map Room” ⁠— a fitting name. It will be arriving soon.

Apex Legends Season 5: Lost Treasures – What’s coming?

Armed and Dangerous Evolved limited-time mode

Long-standing Apex Legends fans will recognize Armed and Dangerous as the iconic sniper and shotgun-only mode. Lost Treasures is bringing back the old LTM with a bit of a twist as well.

In the Lost Treasures event, Armed and Dangerous will only have Evo Armor available across the map. That means blue, purple, and gold armor will not be available at all. If you want top tier armor, you’re going to have to work for it!

Crypto Town Takeover

The next Apex Legends Town Takeover has been confirmed ⁠— Crypto’s new addition to the map will be called “Crypto’s Map Room,” and will arrive alongside the Lost Treasures event once it begins next week on June 23.

We will update Apex Legends fans once more details, including where the Crypto Takeover will be landing, and what kind of loot and treasure is available there, when that becomes available closer to the event date.

Lost Treasures Apex Packs

Apex Legends players have opened countless packs at this point in the game’s lifespan. During this event, fans will also have access to limited edition Lost Treasures themed packs. Players can purchase Lost Treasures with Apex Coins, unlocked with Crafting Materials, or will randomly unlock with the Event Apex Packs.

Inside, players could unlock a “set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics, in addition to 6 matching legendary character and weapon skins, and 12 other epics,” according to an official statement.

As a reward, those who unlock all of the 24 System Override cosmetics, made available by this upcoming update, will be granted a brand new Mirage Heirloom set. Regular players will be aware that Heirlooms are the rarest in the game, so if you want to claim this new one, get to work!

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.
