Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek displayed his incredible skill on the new Apex Legends Armed and Dangerous limited-time game mode.

As part of Apex Legends’ Voidwalker Event, Respawn Entertainment recently released a new snipers and shotguns only limited-time mode for players to experience.

Many fans of the popular battle royale, including top streamer shroud, have quickly gravitated towards the new LTM which makes for the perfect opportunity to pull off some highlight plays.

Twitch/ShroudShroud is known for his incredible aim on most games that he plays.

Shroud was streaming some attempts at the new Armed and Dangerous LTM when he began to display just how good he is with Apex Legends’ sniper rifles.

The Canadian streamer quickly dispatched of enemy squads in King’s Canyon with his incredible accuracy, hitting some ridiculous flicks on weapons such as the Longbow and Triple Take rifles.

It’s the kind of signature play which the former CS:GO pro is known for, and what has made him so popular as a livestreamer.

Shroud was forced to fend for himself after his teammates had been downed early but it did not dissuade the streamer from his usual aggressive playstyle, as he strafed his way in and out of cover, taking down his in-game opponents.

The former CSGO star became more confident as the games went on and casually began to go for 360 kills and other trickshots while testing the new LTM.

Shroud managed to wipe squad after squad, displaying just how well his mechanical skills from other FPS titles such as CS:GO and PUBG could transfer to Respawn’s battle royale.

Many fans were excited to see shroud back on Apex, as his recent streams were packed with World of Warcraft content since the release of WoW Classic.

Fellow Twitch streamer, Dr Disrespect had been calling for shroud to return to some of the battle royale games and even donated him $100 in an attempt to get the Twitch star away from WoW Classic.

Shroud also revealed that despite his enjoyment of WoW Classic’s release, he would be mixing in other games, such as Apex Legends, to keep his stream fresh for viewers.

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.

Apex on Steam

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
