With just days to go until Apex Legends Season 2, the hype is at an all-time high for the game and fans have shown their appreciation with a hilarious take on the its latest trailer.

Respawn dropped a couple of trailers for fans to chew on as they wait for the start of Season 2, much to the delight of the fans.

These same fans have decided to take one of the trailers and mash it up with numerous video game references and voice lines to give it some more pizazz. 

Respawn EntertainmentSeason 2 is almost upon us.

The fan trailer gets off quickly to a humorous start as it’s rated “M” for memes and says “Mozambique here” which is a reference to quite possibly the worst gun ever seen in a video game.

Throughout the roughly two minute trailer, we get references to Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, Mortal Kombat, just to name a few.

Reactions to the trailer have been very positive so far, with many praising the amount of work that went into it. Reddit user Retrospect115 said it took two days to put the trailer together and even a Respawn developer shared their appreciation.

“This was funny af,” he wrote.

He wasn’t the only one who had something to say though, as other Reddit users gave their positive feedback.

“My guy this is some quality work,” wrote Titanfall-Mormon. “The Wattson revive was perfect. 12/10 great content.”

When does Season 2 begin?

Apex Legends Season 2 kicks off on July 2, leaving players with just a matter of days before a whole slew of new content hits. 

Wattson, the L-Star LMG, new challenges, and a Battle Pass will all be coming with the season so stay tuned for that.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

Apparently, the new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump in to the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem. It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
