New Airdrop Escalation LTM is here to takeover Apex Legends

The devs at Respawn are testing a new approach to Apex’s LTMs with the Fight Night update. The Airdrop Escalation mode will be available to play throughout the event’s duration; however, it won’t feature a separate playlist for itself. Instead, the latest LTM will take over the regular “Play Apex” game mode, meaning players will not have an option to queue outside of Airdrop Escalation.

Rules for the new LTM are the same as the classic battle royale experience, but it comes with an increased amount of supply drops. Players will have access to a cluster of four supply drops across the map from the very beginning of a match. As the rounds progress, more drops will land at the same speed as Lifeline’s Care Packages.

Each supply drop will contain a fully kitted weapon of different tiers, depending on the round. For instance, the drops in round one will have level two kitted weapons, whereas the ones in round four will feature high-tier loot, including red armor and crate weapons. Besides that, normal weapons will still appear as ground loot in the Airdrop Escalation LTM.

Pathfinder Town Takeover brings a fighting arena to Olympus

After receiving his own episode of Stories from the Outlands recently, Pathfinder is getting his own Town Takeover as part of the Fight Night Collection event. True to the Fight Night theme, Pathfinder’s Town Takeover is bringing a fighting arena near the Docks POI on Olympus.

At the location, players will get a chance to drop their weapons and brawl with each other in hand-to-hand combat. A force field surrounds the boxing ring, meaning no outside projectiles, grenades, or abilities can penetrate through it.

Entering the ring will prevent players from using their weapons and abilities, and beating opponents with bare hands is the only way to win a fight there. Additionally, punching out the loot balls present within the ring is a good way to gather up some rare loot. Players cannot use it though until they step out.
