It’s been two long weeks Apex Legends“Pathfinder. Last week, a grappling robot on a hook got a Wonderful short animation About his upbringing story, this week he will have his own in-game event. The new event is called Night fightHe brings some boxing-themed twists to his regular matches Apex Legends.
The biggest change to Fight Night will be the new limited-edition Airdrop Escalation. This new mode will be what developer Respawn Entertainment calls “Takeover” mode, meaning it will replace the regular “Play Apex” mode for a limited time. For the most part, the Airdrop Escalation will be like a regular battle royale, except that it will include more airdrops, all with fully equipped weapons.
Each Airdrop Escalation match will start with a few airdrops spread around the map, and in each round, many other projections will be dropped from orbit to the battlefield. Each will come with premium quality loot and weapons, along with all of its attachments.
As for the Pathfinder-more special parts of the action, there is also Pathfinder’s Town Takeover where players can enter a combat ring to take on each other in hand-to-hand combat. Within the arena, which is called Ring on the map, players will only be able to use their fists as weapons, and no one can shoot or throw grenades for melee county. Anyone who survives can pick up some extra loot and leave the ring with their loot.
Finally, the Fight Night event also includes some balance updates for Apex Legends Including orange for both Rampart and Caustic. There is also a nice quality of life improvement that allows you to use final accelerators automatically without opening your inventory. If your Ultimate is slowing down, all you have to do now is press the button to activate it and your character will use Ultimate Accelerant instead.
