What is Apex Legends Flashpoint?

Apex Legends Flashpoint is an old mode in Apex Legends that the team have brought back to celebrate the legacy of the game. In it, you have no way of restoring health from items so you have to go to Flashpoint Zones. Unfortunately, your enemies also restore health in these zones so everyone is fighting to get to the same spot to stay fighting a little longer.

What else is new?

As well as Flashpoint returning, you can find Flash Events - new event-themed challenges with special cosmetics and rewards.

Alongside this, Unshackled Packs are new times packs that come with special cosmetics and items. Unshackled Packs will only get you things unlocked in the Unshackled Event so it's a good time to grind them out.
