Apex Legends fans have discovered a clever trick with Horizon where she can avoid Bangalore and Gibraltar’s Ultimate Abilities.

One of the many reasons Apex Legends has become so popular is the synergy between Legends abilities. Players can work together to create some devastating combinations by pairing their characters’ abilities.

Legends can also effectively counter other Legends abilities, making for a rock-paper-scissors system. A clever Apex player has discovered that Horizon can hard-counter Gibraltar and Bangalore’s Ultimate Abilities.

Bangalore and Gibraltar’s Ultimate Abilities are similar but equally devastating. Both Legends drop a cluster strike of rockets down onto a designated area. Getting caught inside these zones is difficult to survive, but Horizon’s Gravity Lift will allow her to emerge unscathed.

Horizon’s Tactical Ability, Gravity Lift, will lift players 30 meters off the ground for 10 seconds. It’s usually used to gain a height advantage or block off doorways. However, if you’re caught inside the area of Gibby or Bangalore’s ults, you can use the Gravity Lift to avoid the missiles.

Reddit user Jagaleksandr has demonstrated how this clever trick works. After getting missiles dropped down on top of you, simply use the gravity lift and you’ll rise above the explosions below.

Another Reddit user gave more detail, saying that you should avoid strafing while inside Gibby’s impact zone. If you strafe while in the air, the rockets can hit you. Jagaleksandr said to stay while in the air, which shouldn’t be a problem as the enemy will be less likely to shoot at you after dropping the Ultimate on your team.

The Apex community appears to agree that because Horizon can so easily avoid other Legends’ Ultimate Ability, she’s “sort of op,” but the cooldown balances it out.

Apex Legends Season 8 Chaos Theory event: Release date, Heirloom, more

Respawn Entertainment will bring brand new content to Apex Legends Season 8 in the upcoming Chaos Theory event.

The Chaos Theory event will bring a plethora of exciting new content to Apex Legends Season 8, including a new Heirloom and Town Takeover. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

The Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event allowed fans to celebrate the game’s two-year anniversary while bringing cool new content to the battle royale in Season 8. Now, it appears Respawn Entertainment have another event planned known as Chaos Theory.

There are plenty of leaks and rumors about what kind of content we can expect from this Season 8 event, including a brand new Heirloom. Here’s an overview of everything that has been revealed about it so far.

Apex Legends

When is the Chaos Theory event?

We expect this event to begin on March 11, shortly after Apex Legends releases on the Nintendo Switch. The name “Chaos Theory” was revealed by Target on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

It will go live soon after the Anniversary Collection Event ends on March 3. Generally, events in this game last around two and three weeks, so we expect Chaos Theory to have a similar duration.

Caustic Town Takeover

A few leaks emerged recently which suggested that Caustic would be the next Legend to get his own Town Takeover, and that we should expect to see some clues in the game soon. Some Apex players found the first teaser which dropped on February 23.

There was a ton of speculation about where Caustic’s Town Takeover will take place, and the leaks pointed towards Water Treatment on Kings Canyon. Hopefully, Respawn will give us a first look at it soon.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only character from the original roster in Apex Legends who is still awaiting her Heirloom, and it seems like that time has arrived. Some data miners managed to dig up an Heirloom in the files after the Aftermarket Event.

The leaked images show Bangalore’s Heirloom to be a knife resembling a Kukri, which is a type of Indian Machete.

Completing Season 8’s Anniversary event will net you 150 Heirloom Shards to spend on an already existing Heirloom of your choice so you might want to save up on those.

Chaos Theory event skins

While we haven’t gotten a first look at the new Chaos Theory event skins yet, a few data miners may have figured out which Legends will be getting these cosmetics.

This information came from reliable Apex Legends leaker Biast12, who listed the following characters that will receive brand new skins:

Legendary:

  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson

Epic:

  • Octane
  • Caustic
  • Wattson

We might also see the addition of recolored variants of past event skins, but it’s not clear whether or not Respawn will release these as part of the Chaos Theory event. That covers everything we know so far!

Apex Legends devs considering making Locked & Loaded mode permanent

One Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Respawn is considering making the Locked & Loaded loot changes permanent.

Locked & Loaded LTM in Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment have stated that they just might make the Locked & Loaded mode loot changes permanent due to the praise this mode received from Apex Legends fans.

The Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event brought a ton of new content to the battle royale. One major inclusion was the Locked & Loaded mode, which sees all players spawn in the match with level 1 loot.

This LTM allows you to jump into the game with a basic helmet, shield, Mozambique, optic and syringes already equipped. Needless to say, this convenience made the mode popular among Apex fans, and Respawn took notice.

While the mode was only supposed to be around for a limited time, it seems that it may be here to stay.

Bangalore in Apex Legends

Reddit user blitz_na started a thread in the Apex Legends subreddit, in which they asked Respawn to consider keeping Locked & Loaded around for good. This led to a response from lead game designer Daniel Klein, who gave the fans hope.

“We are… considering [it],” he said. “Carefully. No conclusion has been reached yet. I’m personally a little worried about shortening the loot loop by removing grey loot… other than that though, it seems like all upside.”

This caused quite a stir among Apex fans, as the dev received a variety of different responses from them. Many of them felt a sense of joy at the possibility of Locked & Loaded being made permanent, while others responded far less favorably.

Locked and loaded might become permanent in Apex Legends

A few fans made it clear that they find it difficult to return to the base game after trying out the LTM, even if it was just for a short while. Others suggested that Respawn allow players to keep the grey loot, but they should still spawn without a weapon to keep things challenging.

As exciting as this sounds, it’s important to keep in mind that no conclusion has been reached yet. As Klein explained, they’re currently considering the potential downsides of implementing this change, so they’ll have to test it out for a while.

Apex Legends players can still enjoy Season 8 in the meantime and find out how to best master Fuse and the best landing spots.

Possible teaser for Caustic Town Takeover found in Apex Legends

A potential teaser for Caustic’s upcoming Town Takeover may have been discovered by some Apex Legends players.

Caustic's Town Takeover teaser

A few Apex Legends players have discovered a potential teaser for Caustic’s upcoming Town Takeover on Kings Canyon, which has fueled the hype even further.

Respawn Entertainment like giving each character their own Town Takeovers that reform a POI in that Legend’s image. The previous season introduced a Pathfinder-themed boxing arena, and fans have been wondering about who will get the spotlight in Season 8.

A few leaks emerged recently which suggested that Caustic would be the next Legend to get his own Town Takeover, and that we should expect to see some clues in the game soon. Some Apex players may have found these teasers.

Apex Legends Caustic Town Takeover teasers

On February 23, Respawn added a brand new Apex Legends loading screen that shows Caustic walking before stopping to check out the Crash Site in Kings Canyon. This doesn’t sound like much on its own, but it fits with a few previous leaks.

The release of this loading screen lines up with what the Apex data mining community predicted back in early February, when a schedule for ‘s08_tt_teaser_phases’ was leaked, pointing to this date. However, that’s not all that Respawn have changed up.

In addition to the new loading screen, a few matches are reportedly rendering a Caustic on the Apex Arena. Reddit user kittycakekats posted a clip in the Apex Legends subreddit, showcasing the character in the same place that he’s seen in the loading screen.

So far, there has been no indication of other Caustic Town Takeover teasers or easter eggs to search for in the battle royale. Despite this, the hype hasn’t quelled, as fans are discussing different theories of what to expect.

There are some in the Apex community who feel that the Legend’s current strength leaves a lot to be desired, and this has led to them worrying about what the Town Takeover will play like.

The schedule states that the next in-game teaser is set to appear on February 25, and we’ll keep checking for any official announcements by Respawn Entertainment. Hopefully, we’ll get a better look at the Town Takeover soon.
