New Apex Legends leaks point to an upcoming LTM centered around Mirage for the winter season, according to prominent data miner ‘That1MiningGuy.’

So far Town Takeovers have centered around Octane’s adrenaline-fueled antics as well as Wraith’s troubled inter-dimensional past. Meanwhile, the Halloween LTM focused on Pathfinder’s chilling encounter with Revenant.

In the short life of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale, the devs have shown that they want to directly integrate their roster of Legends with the various in-game events and LTMs coming to Apex.

For weeks there’s been rumblings about a possible new Town Takeover or a Limited Timed Mode but without a clear indication of who it could be linked too.

But a new batch of leaks from the dataminer all but confirms that Respawn are at least planning to make the winter LTM centered around Mirage: “Yep – called Winter Express and it’s Mirage related.”

Appended was an image of an announcement that players will hear, if the leaks come to fruition. By the looks of it, Mirage is going to get on the intercoms to describe the rules for the king-of-the hill mode aboard the “Winter Express.”

In another find, That1MiningGuy found a more detailed form of the rules for the Winter Express LTM. The rules indicate that a team will need to claim three rounds to win the match.

Additionally, it looks like players will choose a loadout before going into the match instead of looting like normal in other Apex Legends modes.

In fact, the rules also reveal that “loot doesn’t spawn in this mode” so players will have to rely on one of the loadouts that the LTM offers.

Dying isn’t forever in this match, as players who perish in one round “will respawn before the next round.”

It’s likely that the devs have other in-game events planned for the holiday festivities since voice lines in the leak suggest that there could be some Christmas ties to the upcoming seasonal update.

“That’s my gift to you! And it’s cool you didn’t get me anything. Really,” Mirage says in the leaked announcement, a nod to gift exchanges at Christmastime.

In either case, it seems like Apex Legends players will soon get a new LTM to load into, which will spotlight the Holographic Trickster.

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.
