Highlights

The new patch brings a brand-new game mode and Loba's heirloom via a Collection Event.
Hammerpoint Rounds are finally being nerfed in Arenas after dominating the game mode for several seasons.

The first Collection Event of Apex Legends Season 14 is coming on 20th September along with a brand-new limited-time mode. Fans can finally get their hands on the long-awaited Loba heirloom and also experience Gun Game for the first time in Apex Legends.

Gun Game is a game mode popularized by Call of Duty. There is a set rotation of weapons that you need to cycle through by getting kills and whoever gets a kill with all the weapons first wins the game. The mode was first introduced as “Wager Match” in Call of Duty: Black Ops and since then, it has been implemented in a host of shooter titles.

Limited-Time Mode: Gun Run

Apex Legends is putting a twist on Call of Duty’s Gun Game by making it a team-based game mode. Players can go head-to-head against three other squads in a race to master a wide range of weapons. Each time you get a kill with a weapon, you leapfrog over teammates and are given the next highest weapon on the track. The mode will feature infinite ammo, health items and automatic respawns. The final weapon in the track is an event-exclusive throwing knife. The team that secures a kill with the throwing knife first wins the game.

Collection Event

A new collection event is arriving with 24 limited-time cosmetics that can be unlocked to receive Loba’s new heirloom for “free”. Players can unlock the cosmetics either via paid bundles or crafting materials. The new heirloom can also be unlocked without purchasing the cosmetics by using Heirloom Shards.
