A new limited-time mode called Battle Armor will kick off next week in Apex Legends.
The Battle Armor event for Apex Legends sees the rotation of armor type change every few days, starting on April 28.
How it works is every three to four days, depending, only one armor type will be available during a match. You will drop into a match with the armor type equipped and with a P2020. All armor will be removed from the loot pool.
Loot, shield cells and batteries will still be available, just not armor.
The Battle Armor event takes place on World’s Edge and will evolve during the lead up to Season 5, which kicks off on May 12.
Strap in for the Battle Armor Event! 🛡
Drop in with your armor locked and prove you’ve got the skills to come out on top! Beginning April 28, the Battle Armor Event will run up until the start of Season 5, which kicks off May 12.
