Apex Legends Unshackled Event: Start Date, Rewards, Flashpoint LTM, More
The Apex Legends Unshackled Event is the latest special event filled to the brim with new ways to play and Event-themed rewards to collect. Events are a major draw of Apex Legends, and the Apex Legends Unshackled Event looks to be the one to send off Season 12. This guide will overview the Apex Legends Unshackled Event including its start date, Flashpoint LTM, and all the themed cosmetics.
Apex Legends Unshackled Event: Start Date
The Apex Legends Unshackled Event kicks off on April 19, 2022. The event will run until May 3, giving players exactly two weeks to enjoy the festivities.
Apex Legends Unshackled Event: Flashpoint Limited-Time Mode Returns
The fan-favourite limited-time mode (LTM), Flashpoint, returns with the Apex Legends Unshackled Event. Except this time around, Olympus will be the battlefield.
In Apex Legends Flashpoint, healing and shield items are absent from the loot pool. The only way to recover health and shields in Flashpoint is via Flashpoint Zones.
Flashpoint Zones are represented as giant blue domes of energy scattered around the map. While inside a Flashpoint Zone, your health and shields will regenerate naturally over time.
These novel gameplay dynamics ensure that Flashpoint Zones are the most highly contested areas on the map. If you want your health back, you may have to fight for it.
Flashpoint offers an exciting twist on the standard Apex Legends formula.
