The latest updates to the Apex Legends Mobile Beta have brought a new 6v6 Team Deathmatch mode, which some players are suggesting will also release on PC and console in the future.
The extension to more regions also brought some new features for the game, such as an upgrade system for Legends and a new Team Deathmatch mode.
The new Team Deathmatch mode may be seen in the PC and Console versions of the game in the future according to code found by dataminers, which may not arrive in Season 10, but rather sometime down the line.
Although the console and PC versions of Apex Legends have suffered since the Evolution Collection Event, with a recent update supposedly fixing all the server issues, the game’s Mobile version is developing nicely.
As well as being able to play the standard battle royale mode and Arenas on Apex Legends mobile, players will now also be able to hop into a Team Deathmatch mode.
The mode features two teams of six, spawning into similar-sized maps as Arenas, with Artillery being the current map available to the mode.
If you’re lucky enough to be participating in the Mobile Beta, you will be able to play this exclusive mode. However, dataminers may have uncovered code that suggests its arrival on PC and console in the future.
Thordan Smash‘s YouTube video regarding Team Deathmatch coming to Apex Legends features Shrugtal, a popular dataminer who has found code suggesting there will indeed be a team-based game mode arriving in the future.
This team-based game mode could either be Team Deathmatch or what Shrugtal is calling “Control,” a point-based mode similar to that of Domination in Call of Duty.
Further, Thordan also featured an interview with someone he claims works for EA, where the employee confirms that there will be a variety of team-based modes coming to Apex Legends in the future: “there will be a bunch of other modes, like capture the flag…or the bomb one.”
These rumors and leaks seem more viable now that the mobile version of Apex Legends has a Team Deathmatch mode in its Closed Beta.
However, it could be a while until we see these modes on PC and console, and they may also be slightly different from the 6v6 Team Deathmatch on mobile.
That’s all for Apex Legends Mobile’s Team Deathmatch mode possibly coming to console and PC. For more, check out everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Halloween Event.

Apex Legends Season 13 leaked Summer Tiki Event: Cosmetics, store takeover, more
Apex Legends dataminers have revealed new information about a potential summer Tiki-themed event for Season 13.
Apex Legends Season 13 could be getting a summer-themed event for Season 13, as dataminers leak new details.
Fans are always intrigued by leaked future content for the battle royale game, and it seems dataminers may have revealed a summer-themed Tiki event that could be arriving in Season 13.
What is Apex Legends’ Summer Tiki Event?
Apex Legends leaker Garret has revealed new leaked content that may imply a Summer Tiki event for Apex Legends in Season 13.
Not much is officially known about this event, but as Apex Legends usually gets a Summer of Plunder store sale, it’s likely that the devs will be doing something for the summer season.
In Garret’s video posted on May 19, the leaker revealed some unreleased summer-themed Weapon Charms found in the game’s files by dataminer HYPERMYST.
The Tiki theme comes from the design of the charms, which possess tropical island flowers, an exotic fruit, bamboo, bright colors, a beach umbrella, and just an overall Hawaiian vibe.
Garret believes this either implies that we will either be getting a summer-themed event or a store takeover.
The dataminer also found some more interesting Weapon Charms that further indicate some sort of summer-themed takeover. One of these charms is called “Nessie Float” in the game’s files, which definitely shares a beach/summer theme.
Not much is confirmed about the event, but it’s clear that the devs are working on something summer-themed, whether it be a bundle, store takeover, or thematic event.
We already have leaked information on the Collection Event for Season 13, which is rumored to be called Awakened and has an Anime theme, so it’s likely that this summer event will not be a collection.
As more information is revealed about this potential Apex Legends summer Tiki event, we will be sure to update this piece so stay tuned.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 13 pick rates
Apex Legends Season 13 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 13 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?
Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?
Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex is continuing to grow expeditiously.
Let’s take a look at how the new Legend has shaken up the roster by looking at the current Legend pick rates in Season 13, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.
Apex Legends Season 13 pick rate ranked list
This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.
Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 13 ranked, as of May 20, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:
- Wraith – 10.7%
- Octane – 10.2%
- Valkyrie – 9.4%
- Bloodhound – 8.7%
- Pathfinder – 7.8%
- Newcastle – 7.4%
- Horizon – 5.7%
- Bangalore – 4.5%
- Ash – 4.2%
- Lifeline – 3.9%
- Loba – 3.5%
- Fuse – 3.2%
- Rampart – 3.1%
- Gibraltar – 3%
- Mirage – 2.7%
- Caustic – 2.4%
- Seer – 2%
- Revenant – 2%
- Wattson – 2%
- Mad Maggie – 1.9%
- Crypto – 1.7%
Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13
5. Pathfinder – 7.8%
Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 7.8%, and counting, for quite some time now.
As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.
4. Bloodhound – 8.7%
Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.
Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.7%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.
3. Valkyrie – 9.4%
Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 9.4%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.
As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.
Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.
2. Octane – 10.2%
With a 10.2% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number two spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.
Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.
But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.
1. Wraith – 10.7% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13
Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number one spot with a 10.7% pick rate in Season 13.
Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.
That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.
We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.

Apex Legends pro claims Season 13 ranked changes will make you a better player
An Apex Legends pro has come out in support of the Season 13 ranked changes, claiming it will make players better.
After receiving backlash, Apex Legends pro Mac ‘Albralelie’ Beckwith has shared his thoughts on the new Season 13 ranked system, claiming it will improve players.
Previously, the system had been more focused on kills, but the new system places emphasis on placement. This has made it harder for players to earn points and level up, as the lobbies have become much more competitive in the final zones.
In Apex Legends Season 13’s Ranked Leagues, players are encouraged to stay alive and play for the win, rather than getting a load of kills. This had led to more squads and players being alive in final circles, making it harder to gain points.
While the community hasn’t been particularly fond of these changes, seasoned Apex Legends pro Albralelie gave his opinions on this new system, supporting the dev’s changes while making some controversial comments.
In a recent stream, the Apex Legends pro shared his feelings towards the changes, believing the new ranked changes are healthy for the game, which is contrary to the community’s reaction.
Ultimately, the pro feels as if the new changes are going to make players better at the game. Albralelie says that the new system “caters to you being able to actually improve as you climb…don’t get defeated.”
The streamer and Apex pro also made some interesting comments on solo players while answering a question about whether solo players should be able to reach the higher ranks.
The pro makes a controversial statement: “should a solo player be able to reach Masters in a team-based competitive BR? Just because it happened before doesn’t mean it was supposed to happen, right?”
It’s interesting to hear a professional Apex Legends player’s take on the new ranked system, especially as casual players have been pretty upset with the changes. All in all, the pro feels it will make players better, and even if players are now in lower ranks than they’re used to, they should use it as motivation to improve.
