Apex Legends War Games is live now

Apex Legends' new in-game event is out now and we're dealing with Mad Maggie's antics for the next two weeks while we wait for Season 9 to start.

There are five new LTMs being added to the game in a rotating Playlist Takeover, a new Rewards Track and some new cosmetics for you to spend your Apex Coins on!

War Games Limited Time Modes

Below, we've included the official descriptions of the Limited-Time Modes that'll come as part of War Games in Apex Legends.

Second Chance

We’re kicking things off with a bang on April 13th with our first modifier: Second Chance. In this modifier, each Legend is granted one free respawn per match.

Once a Legend is killed, their Respawn Token is consumed as they rise again from their current location retaining all their weapons and gear. After a short duration, the player respawns high in the air to skydive back into the action.

Note that, while Second Chance is active, Players will be unable to Unlock Assassin, Wake, or Wrath badges, since these prestigious badges would be far easier to unlock in this mode.

Ultra Zones

Then we shake up your ideal drop strategy with Ultra Zones! Ultra Zones introduce the concept of multiple Hot Zones within a single map.

More epic loot, more gold items! But wait, there’s more! Each Hot Zone is enveloped in a Flash Point—a returning feature from a Season 6 LTM.

For those who don’t already know, Flash Points are enormous, glowing bubbles that replenish your HP and shields when you stand in them. In this mode, consumable items are still available as normal throughout the loot pool.

Auto Banners

Tune-in mid event for Auto Banners. In this modifier we’ve made a rather small but spicy change to squadmate respawning. Your Squadmates Banner Cards are automatically retrieved!

No need to loot their death box to retrieve their Banner Cards, just head straight to a respawn beacon. The loot pool has been altered to contain more Mobile Respawn Beacons too.

Killing Time

Feel the pressure with Killing Time. This event speeds up the match as Legends fall. During a round, whenever a Legend dies, the round time is reduced.

If any given round is a massacre, you can bet that ring will be closing real quick! Keep an eye on the round timer and the ring in this modifier.

Armor Regen

We’re closing out the event with Armor Regen. That’s right: your armor regenerates over time at a rate of 12 points per second.

Whenever you take damage, your armor will begin regenerating after an 8-second delay. This delay is doubled to 16 seconds if your armor gets cracked. One last thing for this mode: there are no Shield Cells in the loot pool!

All modes begin and end during mornings, PT time.
