Respawn released the trailer for the collection event yesterday. It includes the upcoming Apex Legends Flashpoint LTM.
There is a limited-time mode event every season. The Apex Legends Flashpoint LTM is a new game mode based on the ‘Always be Closing’ LTM. However, there are notable changes in its mechanics.
The upcoming LTM is part of the Apex Legends Aftermarket collection event. This event includes exclusive legendary skins. Respawn also consist of many bonus items, such as weapon charms.
How does the Flashpoint LTM work?
According to Mark Yampolsky, Apex Legends systems designer, several “Flash Points” are scattered throughout King’s Canyon.
These Flash Points regenerates players’ health and shields over time. It is quite similar to how Lifeline D.O.C drone heals up a player. However, it will be a lot faster.
“Flash Points are special because they regenerate your health and shields over time to get you healed and ready for combat in a flash,” said Yampolsky. Though, there is one catch on this game mode.
All squads will be sharing on the Flashpoints around the map. This means that many of the fights will happen on the Flash Points or near the area. Expect a free-for-all deathmatch fights around the map.
Yampolsky added that this game mode “evokes some of our favorite classic first-person shooters.”
As mentioned earlier, this game mode takes a cue from the “Always be Closing” LTM. From the start, the ring closes to the final circle. This makes team fights more intense as players may rotate to the end zone during the early game.
The Apex Legends Flashpoint LTM gives a breath of fresh air to the game. The season 6 ranked split just started and this game mode gives players a much-needed break.
