Respawn Entertainment announced a new limited-time mode for Apex Legends that will give players a starting load-out at the beginning of each match.
The new event, called Battle Armor, will spawn every player with armor and a P2020 pistol to begin each match. Each player will have the same type of armor and all other armor types will be removed from the loot pool, though healing items and weapons will not be affected.
The Battle Armor event will begin tomorrow, April 28 with all players starting each match with white armor only. The event will last for two weeks with a different level of armor changing every few days.
That includes the Evo armor introduced in the game last February, which extends shield capacity by causing more damage to enemies. The full schedule for the Battle Armor event is as follows:
- Tuesday, April 28 at 1 p.m. ET – Saturday, May 2 at 1 p.m. ET: Level 1 (White) armor
- Saturday, May 2 at 1:01 p.m. ET – Wednesday, May 6 at 1 p.m. ET: Level 2 (Blue) armor
- Wednesday, May 6 at 1:01 p.m. ET – Saturday, May 9 at 1 p.m. ET: Level 3 (Purple) armor
- Saturday, May 9 at 1:01 p.m. EDT – Tuesday, May 12 at 1 p.m. ET: Evo armor
The Battle Armor event will run until the beginning of Season 5 for Apex Legends on May 12. Respawn said the event is “one way we are going to start experimenting with the core gameplay of Apex Legends,” and teased more plans for Season 5 and beyond.
