In Season 15, Apex Legends has received a Call of Duty-style Hardcore mode along with the Celestial Sunrise Collection Event.
Apex Legends' final weeks are approaching, but before players welcome Season 16, Respawn Entertainment seems to have a few surprises in store.
The Spellbound Collection Event has already marked the return of Control and the controversial addition of Private Matches, and now the developers have released yet another Collection Event.
The Celestial Sunrise Event rolled out just after Spellbound's release, and not only does it bring new cosmetics, but it also introduces a brand-new Hardcore LTM.
The Apex Legends Hardcore mode reduces the battle royale experience to the basics, introducing new rules that will make it much more difficult to survive.
Apex Legends Hardcore LTM details
The Apex Legends Hardcore mode follows the same principles as the classic mode of Call of Duty with the same name, and will be available from January 24, 2023 until the Collection Event's end on February 7, 2023.
Apex Legends players will have to deal with a limited HUD for the time being. Giving players less information and on-screen help will force them to rely on their gun skill in a less forgiving environment.
Next, players will have to deal with decreased overall health and survivability. This means that all Legends will have Level 1 armor, no helmets, and Armor Swapping will be disabled. These three changes should result in players dying faster than usual.
The Ring will do the greatest damage from the start of the game, in addition to Apex Legends' Hardcore mode as an additional rule to suit the battle royale style of play.
You'll still be able to check your weapon's HUD by looking at the weapon. There will also be a workaround to check how many Squads are remaining with Scanning Survey Beacons. It's likely the developers included these features to make a Hardcore experience suitable for the battle royale genre.
The mode will require a minimum account level of 20, meaning anyone below this level will need to earn some XP to enjoy the mode. Make sure you complete your weekly challenges as soon as possible to maximize your XP.
After the Celestial Sunrise event, another Apex Legends LTM will be released. For further information, see our article on the Date Night LTM or check out some other guides below:
