Respawn Entertainment added the Mobile Respawn Beacon to Apex Legends for the Lost Treasures event on June 23 in the Armed & Dangerous LTM – but it turns out you can get one in any game mode!

The Mobile Respawn Beacon does exactly what it says on the tin: rather than having to carry your dead teammate’s banner to a respawn beacon, you simply carry this one around in your backpack and can use it whenever and wherever you want.

While this is obviously super helpful, and could often mean the difference between a win or a loss, with players only able to find it in the limited time mode, many didn’t think it was feasible to find one in duos or trios.

Now, though, players are slowly starting to discover that it’s very much possible to find one in regular game modes, too, as evidenced here.

If you’re looking to find a mobile respawn beacon in either duos or trios, simply follow the steps below and you should have one in no time.

The easiest time to pick up the Mobile Respawn Beacon is clearly straight off spawn, so make sure you time your drop right to get ahead of your opponents.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on what you need to do to grab yourself one:

  1. Head to the bunker located slightly south-east of Salvage (as shown in video)
  2. Drop all the way to the bottom once opened and walk forwards into the open room
  3. Head directly left, down the corridor and through the double doors
  4. Head over to the far side of the room
  5. Pick up the mobile respawn beacon, as well as the gold Knockdown Shield that it is always partnered with

So, there you have it! We’ve tested it a couple of times and, fingers crossed, nobody else is landing there right now, but make sure you take advantage of this as soon as possible before it becomes a well-known spot.

There’s also a decent amount of loot in there usually, at least enough for one player to grab a weapon and a solid amount of ammo, so you should be able to prepare for any gun fights that occur around the bunker.

Respawn confirm capped FPS for Apex Legends on next-gen consoles

Apex fans looking forward to a possible FPS boost when the game heads to next-gen consoles have been left disappointed after devs from Respawn confirmed that upgrade wasn’t going to happen.

FPS means “frames per second” and represents how many times your screen refreshes over a second. Generally, the rule for most games is higher FPS = smoother movement and graphics in-game.

Both the Series X and PS5 will be able to support games up to 120 FPS, double the amount from the previous generation of consoles, but not all games will be able to take advantage.

Unfortunately, while Apex will be coming to both next-gen machines, it doesn’t seem like Respawn will be able to increase the frames players can achieve.

Replying to a user on Twitter who inquired about the 60 FPS lock, Respawn dev Jason McCord confirmed Apex would be staying where it was so that everyone could continue playing, no matter what system they’re on.

“Locking the game on consoles lets us give a more consistent framerate for the lower end machines,” McCord explained. “If we uncapped it, you’d see much bigger spikes and valleys, and the game would feel worse.”

That’s not to say that Apex won’t perform better with new hardware though, framerate drops have been an almost constant complaint amongst players since the game was released, but it’s thought that the PS5 and Xbox Series X should do a much better job of keeping things at consistent 60 FPS.

In fact if Apex is able to keep framerate drops from happening, we’d wager being able to keep things going at a steady 60 frames a second would be a significantly more noticeable upgrade for many players than making it able to go all the way up to 120.

All that being said Respawn’s battle royale is still doing quite well with a loyal community of fans, and it will look to keep things going as players eventually start to move to new consoles to play through Season 7.
