Halloween is upon us and the Apex Legends community has provided some of the most entertaining costumes in 2019.

Dressing up in video game attire on the spooky holiday is nothing new, but this is the first Halloween since Apex Legends was released and the community is jumping at the occasion to cosplay their favorite characters.

While a recent update saw the introduction of haunting skins in the game, here’s a look at some of the best Apex Legends costumes this Halloween.

Starting with a great Mirage costume, this family pulled out all the stops to accurately recreate the Legend. 

The 11-year-old was stylishly dressed up as the stealthy character. From ski goggles to the altered garden gloves and even 3D-printed accessories, the attention to detail here is sure to be a standout at his local school.

Doubling up with this next highlight, these cosplayers went all out in creating costumes for both Mirage and Lifeline. 

Even nailing the poses of their chosen characters, this duo perfectly embodied the figures and stood out as two of the most authentic gaming costumes this Halloween.

Reddit: MonteOnTheRunJust one more costume and this would make for a fully-fledged Apex squad.

One of the most adorable concepts of the season, this kid decided to dress as Bloodhound for Halloween, and the results are incredible.

Committing completely to the attire, the costume even came equipped with Bloohound’s pet crow.

Reddit: ColorfingerYou don’t need the Eye of the Allfather to tell how great this costume is.

One of the more unique costumes in the Apex Legends community, this design is modeled after Crypto’s foster sister Mila Alexander.

After accidentally stumbling a dark Syndicate secret, Mila was supposedly murdered, leading to Crypto’s life on the run. That didn’t stop this cosplayer from bringing the character to life in a new way with one of the first Mila costumes ever.

Perhaps the most amusing Apex Legends costume of all however, came from a developer at Respawn Entertainment who decided to dress up as one of the features he helped implement. That feature being a door.

From Respawn CEO Vince Zampella to Producer Tina Sanchez, it’s safe to say that everyone at the company got a great kick out of this one.

With so many incredible video game costumes coming out on Halloween, it’s great to see the Apex Legends community so passionate about the characters in the renowned battle royale title.

If recent leaks are to be believed there could be plenty of new Legends to dress up as in 2020.

10 tips and tricks for dominating new Winter Express LTM in Apex Legends

There is a new Limited Time Mode called Winter Express in Apex Legends’ returning Holo-Day Bash event, and we’ve got 10 tips and tricks to help you dominate matches.

Launching on December 1 and running through until January 4, the Holo-Day Bash in-game event adds a lot of holiday-themed content in Apex Legends, one of which is the Winter Express LTM.

As you can probably guess from the name, Winter Express puts all of the focus on the in-game train, which was decked out in holiday decorations for this in-game event.

How does Winter Express LTM work?

In each match, three teams of three players each face off against each other with the objective of capturing the train.

The train can be captured in one of two ways – either by filling out the capture bar without being contested by enemies or being the last team alive. The match ends when one of the teams manages to capture the train three times.

There are, however, some aspects of this mode that are different from how regular Apex matches go:

  • Players spawn in with a pre-determined loadout of weapons and items, which are different for each Legend. Loadouts change on a daily basis.
  • Respawning is enabled. Once a player is eliminated, they can join back.
  • The radius of the train’s patch is reduced so that players are never too far from the action.
Respawn EntertainmentHow the new Winter Express LTM works.

10 tips and tricks for Winter Express LTM

1. Find the best loadout available

Each Legend has its own pre-determined loadout, so make sure to check them all out to find the one with the best and most powerful combination of weapons and items.

For a mode like this, prioritize the loadout over your preferred Legend of choice, because having a better setup is more important.

2. Mix and match attachments with teammates

Attachments can be dropped in this mode, so it would be a good idea to strategize with teammates and swap attachments to maximize all of the weapons’ potentials.

For example, the EVA-8 shotgun comes with a red-dot sight that would be of better use on another gun, or moving an extended mag to a Devotion LMG to turn it into a death machine.

Respawn EntertainmentEach Legend has their own Loadout, so make sure to scout them and pick the strongest one.

3. Use the Lifeline’s Care Package to get better loot

The Lifeline’s Care Package Ultimate Ability can be activated in this LTM, which means you and your team might end up getting access to powerful items that aren’t normally available, such as purple armor or thermal scopes.

4. Don’t forget about unlimited heals

For whatever reason, whether because of a glitch or intentional design, you have unlimited heals in this mode, even though your healing inventory will indicate only one syringe and one shield cell.

Make sure to take advantage of this feature because it can really make a difference between staying alive and getting eliminated.

5. You don’t have to land on the train

Most players’ initial instinct in this mode will be to land directly on the train, which is why a good strategy would be not to. Instead, aim to land on high structures near the train and pick off enemies from there.

Remember, there are three teams all fighting against each other, so you can always third party enemy players by getting the high ground and shooting at them away from the train.

Respawn EntertainmentUse Lifeline’s Care Package to gain access to better loot, like purple armor.

6. Stay close enough to stop teams from capturing

While not landing on the train right away is a good move, it’s also important to not be too far away from the action. If one of the two other teams gains control, it’s imperative that you and your team are close enough to jump down and contest the capture, otherwise you will lose the round.

7. Ditch the train after winning a round

In line with the last tip, it’s always a good idea to get off the train as soon as you win a round because most players spawning back in will go straight for it.

Treat the start of each round like a new match – aim for the high ground so that you can pick off gung-ho players who aggressively go for the train.

8. Attack from the front

Most players who are on the train will expect to be attacked from either of the two sides or the back, but never the front. They also forget that the front side of the train is now open.

This is why it’s a good strategy to land in front of the train, albeit a good distance away, and make your way towards it, shooting at the enemies on board who will most likely be looking the wrong way.

Respawn EntertainmentYou don’t always have to land on the train when spawning into a Winter Express match.

9. Play the stalemate game if necessary

When finding yourself in a situation where winning a round is too difficult to manage, focus your efforts on making sure the two other teams don’t either

Remember, each round is timed, and when the timer hits zero and no one’s captured the train, the next round starts. Sometimes the best play is to make sure no one captures by the time that happens.

10. Multi-task with jump pads

In order to help players reach the train quickly, a bunch of jump pads were placed at various points on the tracks. You can use these not only to get to the train quickly but also to reach certain areas of the map, especially high ground, positioning yourself to take down enemies below.

Furthermore, when using these jump pads, you are actually afforded enough time to pop a shield cell, so you can definitely save time by doing so.
