As part of the Always Be Closing Evolved LTM, a new Hop-Up has been added in Apex Legends called the ‘Graffiti Mod’ and it’s giving people the ability to light up the Arena with a fresh coat of paint.

With Season 6 on the horizon, Respawn have been providing more clues about where they want to take the game in the next chapter. Players have already caught wind of the nods to Apex Games’ creator Blisk as well as upcoming Legend, Rampart.

This includes graffiti portraits and messages around the Arena that were originally pegged as teasers for the new character. It looks like Respawn are continuing that trend with the next Hop-Up for the Spitfire that gives it lethal ‘paintballs’ to shoot.

The attachment is simply called the ‘Graffiti Mod’ and, as far as we can tell, it’s currently only available for the Spitfire, giving the LMG an increased magazine size and reload speed. It also stocks the gun up with paint-loaded rounds that burst into color as soon as they make impact.

Rampart’s logo is associated with the new Graffiti Hop-Up.

Once selected and equipped, your gun will discharge purple, yellow, green, or random color pellets that can be toggled with B or the left button on a D-Pad.

As of now, the attachment is only available in the Always Be Closing Evolved LTM, and it’s unclear if the Respawn intends this to be a permanent feature in Apex Legends, but it has a few too many connections to Rampart for it to be totally temporary.

Not only has the new Legend’s appearance been literally marked with graffiti throughout the Apex Games, but the Graffiti Mod also shared direct nods to her appearance in the Season 6 Boosted Launch trailer.

When hovering on the Graffiti Mod, the icon that distinguishes the attachment is the encircled ‘R’ that can be seen in front of Rampart’s shop and branded on her armor.

This could be a way for the studio to get players hyped for the upcoming Legend by integrating some of the firepower that her ability kit will provide with a new item attachment.


Apex Legends Season 6: Boosted will launch on Tuesday, August 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

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.

New Olympus Preview LTM

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.

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

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.

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

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

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.
