Apex Legends players explain why The Hunt LTM makes the game “awful”

Apex Legends players are claiming The Hunt takeover LTM makes the battle royale “awful” to play.

For a while, the Apex Legends community was desperate for the Respawn devs to release more limited-time modes, which offer a different way to enjoy the popular battle royale.

Over the past couple of months, the devs have done a stellar job at keeping players happy, releasing numerous LTMs to experience, such as the popular Three Strikes and Straight Shot modes.

However, players are currently frustrated, claiming the newly released The Hunt takeover, which replaced the core battle royale as part of the Inner Beast collection, makes the regular game “awful.”

Apex Legends players call game “awful” because of LTM

In a Reddit thread on March 8, one Apex Legends fan slammed The Hunt takeover. “The Hunt game mode is awful,” they wrote. “This new event makes pubs awful. Perma scan is dumb, games end before second circle close, third parties are even quicker, so everyone just sends everything.”

They added: “The last few LTMs have been awesome. This one really makes me want to sit this collection event out.”

Immediately after The Hunt’s release, some players labeled the mode as one of Apex Legends‘ worst yet. Not only that, the devs have faced backlash for the release of the Inner Beast Collection Event as a whole — slamming it for being another “recolor” event.

In late 2023, we saw the popular Three Strikes LTM arrive with the Post Malone event, which players loved so much the devs brought it back for an extra week.

The Straight Shot LTM then arrived with the release of Season 20, which players praised as one the best modes to ever come to the game.
