How Flashpoint works in Apex Legends

Flashpoint arrives in Apex Legends on April 19.

After first making its debut in Apex back in the Aftermarket event, the Flashpoint LTM has finally returned but this time, it’s on Olympus.

In this fast-paced mode, all healing items are removed from the match, so players must relocate to “Flashpoint Zones” if they want to regenerate their health and shields.

These huge giant circular zones can be easily spotted from far away and force squads to group up together and take gunfights.

Finally, keep in mind the final circle will end on a Flashpoint Zone so make sure you’re prepared and nearby the dome that’s most likely to be the end game location.

Flashpoint is incredibly fast-paced as squads are forced to fight.

Flashpoint will be available to play in Apex on April 19 and will stay in-game until May 3 when the Unshackled event concludes.

As it’s only in the pool for two weeks, ensure you make the most out of the LTM as it’s hard to know when it will return.
