The Apex Legends Spellbound Collection Event will launch themed cosmetics and an heirloom for Seer. The Spellbound Collection event will also bring a limited time mode, gameplay updates and the ability to create private matches. The Spellbound event will span two weeks, starting on 10th January and shall end on 24th January 2023. 

Spellbound Patch Notes

Patch notes apply to the standard Apex Battle Royale game modes. Certain items have been cycled in the crafting rotation along with nerfs to Anvil Reciever and G7 Scout. The patch also buffed the Sentinel and the Prowler Burst PDW. 

Crafting Rotation

  • G7 Scout enters the crafter

  • C.A.R. SMG enters the crafter

  • Spitfire returns to the floor

  • Peacekeeper returns to the floor

Anvil Receiver Hop-Up

Spellbound Control game mode updates

The update brings a number of quality of life changes to Apex Legends’s limited-time game mode. Matchmaking has been improved with an extension to the Join In Progress window. Matchmaking will try to fill empty player slots until 1 team has a score of 625 or there is a score difference of 300 between the teams. Players that join a Control match in progress will get the following benefits:

  • Skip the first spawn wave

  • Spawn with Purple Armor and Helmet

  • Get a full Ratings Tier ( Purple Weapons and an Ultimate Charge)

If a team is losing by a score of 62 or more, they skip spawn waves. The developers also added new end-of-match XP reward to Control (150 XP for completing a match). Bloodhound clues have been nerfed with them disappearing after 30 seconds instead of 90. The Loadout selection has been optimised to the weapon meta changes. 

Private matches finally come to Apex Legends

Private matches will be available for all players.

Setting up private matches will now be possible in Apex Legends.

You will be able to generate your own tournament codes and host custom private matches.

The Spellbound patch brought the ability to set up private matches in a few clicks.
