The holiday season kicked off in Apex Legends with the winter-themed Holo-Day Bash event going live earlier this week. The fan-favorite Winter Express limited-time mode has returned, and brand new cosmetics and rewards are up for grabs for a full month. While Holo-Day Bash is the first event since the launch of Apex’s Season 7, players have more events to look forward to as the season progresses.

Apex has hosted quite a few Collection Events since its inception, with Aftermarket from Season 6 being the most recent one. ‘Fight Night’ is widely rumored to be the Collection Event for this season, which will feature exclusive skins and the next Town Takeover. YouTuber WaterGotHim has pointed out what to expect from the upcoming event, based on data mined information from the game files.

Pathfinder Town Takeover in Apex Legends Season 7

Town Takeovers in Apex Legends traditionally transform a section of a map into a new area that centers on a particular legend. Previously we have seen Wraith, Octane, Mirage, Bloodhound, and Crypto receive a map location representing each of them.

The Apex community’s data miners uncovered interesting clues in the game files that indicate Pathfinder’s Town Takeover will arrive in Season 7. According to data mined intel from Biast12, the takeover will supposedly occur on the new Olympus map, in an area located between Docks, Turbine, Carrier, and Power Grid.

The data miner also shared some images of how the location could look like in-game. Apparently, the main area of this Town Takeover will feature a fighting arena with zip lines attached on the inside and without a roof.

Moreover, the different advertisement screens spread across Olympus are likely to change during the upcoming event. The screens will reportedly display promotions featuring Pathfinder for ‘Fight Night’, which will accompany the takeover.

As for the game mode for the upcoming event, there’s very little information on it. However, since it will take place on Olympus, the Trident vehicles have a good possibility of being involved in the LTM.

‘Fight Night’ Collection Event Skins and Gibraltar’s Heirloom

Like the previous Collection Events, the upcoming one will also introduce a set of 24 limited-time cosmetics to Apex’s in-game store. Since it is not a themed event, Pathfinder probably won’t receive a special skin, like Wraith’s Voidwalker or Bloodhound’s Young Blood.

However, the event-limited cosmetics could follow the same high fashion theme from the Season 7 Battle Pass. This unnamed Epic skin for Pathfinder posted by data miner Shrugtal could become available.

Besides that, players can expect Legendary visuals for several characters and weapons. According to the data miner, ‘Fight Night’ will also feature Gibraltar’s Heirloom; however, its name is currently unknown.

However, it most likely won’t take place until early January, when Holo-Day Bash concludes. Meanwhile, those interested can watch the video uploaded by WaterGotHim for a detailed insight about ‘Fight Night’ and Pathfinder’s Town Takeover.
