Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM is chugging along as a part of the Holo-Day Bash event, but if you’ve never dropped in and want some tips on which legends to use, we’ve got you covered. 

With the Holo-Day Bash event returning for the 2020 holiday season, Respawn Entertainment have also brought back the Winter Express limited-time mode. Though, some fans criticized them for “recycling modes, this year’s iteration does include some interesting changes.

The mode is completely different from the typical battle royale gameplay you’re used to in Apex. Your team has to take control of the train that used to chug its way around World’s Edge – all while dealing with preset loadouts and enemies who are contesting for control. Plus, there are a few issues with friendly fire now, too. 

As it’s so different, your usual main Legend might not be as useful here, so here are a few tips and the best characters to use, to help you pick up more wins.

Winter Express is back, and its as enjoyable as ever.

In terms of the best Legends to use, you may have to switch things up from who you would usually use in the battle royale mode. For example, Lifeline is great in duos/trios, but she’s not really needed in Winter Express as her healing abilities are rather useless here.

Caustic is probably the best legend to use, given that his gas is an absolute killer in the tight spaces. Similarly, Rampart’s amped walls are useful too, especially if you’re camping the train. 

Wraith, as always, is a stellar choice because her portal can get you out of a sticky situation – of which there are plenty in Winter Express. Additionally, Crypto and Wattson are good choices. Crypto because the drone can be used to auto-scan enemies, while Wattson’s interception pylon nullifies everyone’s stack of grenades.

Caustic is a tier 1 legend when it comes to Winter Express.

Don’t head right for the train

While the name of the game is capturing the train, that doesn’t have to mean you need to land there. You can easily land just off to the side for a cleaner start to looting, and then work your way over. 

Plus, if you do so, you can annoy enemies who try to capture it right away by disrupting their progress on the capture. 

Additionally, if you are going for the train, it’s best to attack from the front. Players will be expecting attacks from the side and the back, but the front is often forgotten about. So, use it to your advantage. 


Of course, you might have your own tactics for dominating the LTM, but there are some general tips everyone can follow, which you can find right here

The Winter Express and Holo-Day Bash event are set to run for another month, until January 4, so you’ve got plenty of time to hone your skills and pick up wins.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
