With the brand new Gun Run LTM, Loba’s Garra de Alanza fan Heirloom, and countless unique skins to collect, Respawn are certainly looking to impress in the upcoming patch.

New Gun Run LTM

Gun Run LTM Apex LegendsRespawn Entertainment
The Beast of Prey Collection Event is adding a brand new LTM.

The new Gun Run LTM gives players a chance to go head-to-head against three other squads in a race to master a wide range of weapons in the Apex arsenal.

Each time you get a kill with a weapon, you leapfrog over teammates and are given the next highest weapon on the track. This encourages squads to work as a team to progress through the guns as quickly as possible.

The next weapon you’re scheduled to jump to is previewed on a tracker visible while competing in the mode. Finally, to take home the victory in Gun Run, you’ll need to take down the final kill in the match with a unique throwing knife, so good luck!

Keep in mind, that the mode will be available to play Skulltown and Fragment East during the Collection Event.

Loba Heirloom

As always, the Beast of Prey Collection Event will introduce a new Mythic-tier cosmetic to the game and this time it’s for the Translocating Thief, Loba.

Her Garra de Alanza fan Heirloom will be available to craft using Heirloom shards or gifted to any player who can collect all 24 items for the Collection Event.
