Apex Legends News: Flashpoint is back, new cosmetics, and new features
An old favorite LTM is returning for the Unshackled Event that starts April 19th and ends May 3rd. The LTM Flashpoint was a very fun game mode; healing items are removed from the loot pool and replaced by “Flashpoint Zones”. These zones are large areas that heal all Legends inside them. You’ll have to fight your way through in order to heal.
