Apex Legends War Games: All the Different Game Mode Dates, Rewards, and More

Just right on the heels of the Ring Fury limited-time game mode, Respawn has revealed all the details for their next War Games event in Apex Legends.

This event seems like one of those events with multiple different game modes that change every 2 days similar to the arcade game mode. The war games will contain five different game modes starting from 13th April and will end on 27th April.

Each game mode will last around 2 days. So, the overall event will be densely packed. Alongside all the unique game modes, Respawn will also be bringing recolors of the old Iron Crown event that was originally launched back in 2019.

The Iron Crown event skin bundle has been one of the most saught after skin line in the game. Many fans were eager to get their hands on this skin line for a while. Now is a great time to add these skins to your collection if you were unfortunate enough the miss the original drop.

We’re kicking things off with a bang on April 13th with our first modifier: Second Chance. In this modifier, each Legend is granted one free respawn per match. Once a Legend is killed, their Respawn Token is consumed as they rise again from their current location retaining all their weapons and gear. After a short duration, the player respawns high in the air to skydive back into the action.

Note that, while Second Chance is active, Players will be unable to Unlock Assassin, Wake, or Wrath badges, since these prestigious badges would be far easier to unlock in this mode. 


Then we shake up your ideal drop strategy with Ultra Zones! Ultra Zones introduce the concept of multiple Hot Zones within a single map. More epic loot, more gold items! But wait, there’s more! Each Hot Zone is enveloped in a Flash Point—a returning feature from a Season 6 LTM. For those who don’t already know, Flash Points are enormous, glowing bubbles that replenish your HP and shields when you stand in them. In this mode, consumable items are still available as normal throughout the loot pool.

Tune-in mid event for Auto Banners. In this modifier we’ve made a rather small but spicy change to squadmate respawning. Your Squadmates Banner Cards are automatically retrieved! No need to loot their death box to retrieve their Banner Cards, just head straight to a respawn beacon. The loot pool has been altered to contain more Mobile Respawn Beacons too.


Feel the pressure with Killing Time. This event speeds up the match as Legends fall. During a round, whenever a Legend dies, the round time is reduced. If any given round is a massacre, you can bet that ring will be closing real quick! Keep an eye on the round timer and the ring in this modifier.

We’re closing out the event with Armor Regen. That’s right: your armor regenerates over time at a rate of 12 points per second. Whenever you take damage, your armor will begin regenerating after an 8-second delay. This delay is doubled to 16 seconds if your armor gets cracked. One last thing for this mode: there are no Shield Cells in the loot pool!
