Classic Titanfall weapon spotted in Apex Legends battle pass video

Apex Legends could be set to add another Titanfall weapon to its ranks after players saw something new lurking in the battle pass video for the Wingman’s ‘Attention To Detail’ skin.

With Apex Legends and Titanfall both coming from Respawn Entertainment, fans of both games have been hoping for more and more crossovers. The developers have, on more than one occasion, shut down hopes of having actual Titans roam around the battle royale map.

However, when it comes to things like weapons and lore, Titanfall plays a big role in the Apex universe. Guns like the R-99, Flatline, and Charge Rifle – among plenty of others – have all made the switch. Now, though, it appears as if another could be set to join them.

Apex Legends leaker Shrugtal noted that some players had noticed a weapon resembling Titanfall’s EPG-1 was being used by a DUMMIE in the battle pass trailer for the Wingman’s ‘Attention To Detail’ skin.

The plasma grenade launcher only appears for a split second, and while some fans might suggest that it is actually the Prowler, Shrugtal pointed out that there are clear differences when you actually give it a proper look. 

The leaker also went on to add that last year, a whole host of Titanfall weapons were added to the Apex files, but they were subsequently removed and never made it into the game. 

In a similar vein, players noticed that before the Sentinel was added to Apex, it also appeared on the back of a DUMMIE during a reveal for one of Crypto’s finishers. He also added that what players saw in the Wingman video could be a second version of the EPG that is purposed purely for Apex.

Obviously, it is not confirmed if the EPG will actually be headed to the Apex Games anytime soon, though Shrugtal further noted that the weapon could be the answer to questions surrounding a new explosive ammo logo. 

It still remains to be seen as to whether or not Respawn adds the grenade launcher to the battle royale’s arsenal of weapons any time soon.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
