Apex Legends is going old school with ‘Fight Night’ event

The update has added a new LTM game mode in ‘Airdrop Escalation Takeover’. The developers have stated that they are testing out this new LTM to observe how players react to it. This game mode will see continuous drops of loot throughout the game, and the items inside these airdrops will scale in rarity as the game progresses.

Players will get fully decked out weapons and supplies from these packages, but they won’t be able to swap out attachments from these weapons. The other big feature ‘Pathfinder Town Takeover’ will introduce is a whole new ‘Fight Night’ style of combat. Players who enter the ring or the force field cannot use their weapons except for melee attacks.

No outside interference would be allowed once inside the ring, which will also prevent bomb, grenades and abilities from entering the area. The only way to win is by punching each other out with just your fists. This event will also come attached with challenges that will contribute to Battle Pass progression.

Other than the aforementioned changes, new quality life of upgrades will change the way you play the game. Gamers will no longer have to physically locate and use the ultimate accelerant from inventory, as this new feature will dedicate button or buttons (depending on PC or consoles) that you can use to activate it without looking for them in the inventory.

Players will also be able to tag red dots ‘mark as read’ on the map posted by the teammates. It will prevent the ‘HUD’ from being cluttered with unnecessary pings that previously obstructed the player’s vision. If one of the party members gets disconnected, it will automatically set the entire team in the lobby as ‘not ready’ as opposed to previously launching the game.
