A renowned Apex Legends dataminer has leaked details of an upcoming Limited Time Mode in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale title that could hint at huge armor changes coming to the game in the future.

As with any battle royale game, the debate surrounding RNG – or, the randomness of certain events occurring – is an everlasting one.

Many players, especially competitive players, believe one way the randomness can be reduced is through how players collect shields, and this LTM might be the perfect litmus test to see how Respawn can make the playing field more even.

Apex Legends could be about to make a massive change, depending on how this LTM goes.

As popular leaker iLootGames explains in his latest video, there appears to be a special LTM arriving on Friday, April 24, on World’s Edge.

It’s not clear what the LTM will be named, but it will have phases that last up to four days each, with players spawning in with gear before they even land.

The point of the mode is that players spawn with progressively better armor during each phase of the event, as well as a pistol – similar to how Call of Duty’s new BR, Warzone, works, reducing the chances of players being caught short as soon as they land.

The first phase of the event launches on April 24 at 10am PST (1pm EST/6pm BST), and players will spawn with basic level 1 armor, unable to collect any armor at all while actually in-game.

The second phase starts on April 27, with players spawning with level 2 armor, the third on April 29 with level 3 armor and, finally, between May 1 and May 5, players will spawn with their pistol and Evo shields.

It appears that Respawn want to use this to test whether set spawn gear, such as shields and pistols, could actually be beneficial to the game – and this might change Apex Legends as we know it entirely.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
