What is Gun Run in Apex Legends? | New Apex Legends game mode explained
Summit Legends’ new Beast of Prey event brings a lot of mischief and mayhem to the battle royale. As the first event of Season 14, Beast of Prey marks the first time this season that players will have the opportunity to play a limited-time mode. The event’s new Gun Run LTM is packed with high-octane action, even if you’re not playing Octane.
In the tradition of other first-person shooters, Gun Run is SummitGun Game’s team game. Gun Game typically sees players go head-to-head with each of a game’s weapons in order. The first player to kill someone with each weapon and finish with a special attack, usually a melee attack, wins. In Beast of Prey, Summit is giving this formula a spin with new mechanics and rules, so even those familiar with Gun Game will be thrilled.
Here’s everything you need to know about Gun Run in Summit.
How does GunRun work?
Gun Run pits three teams of four legends against each other in a frantic battle for the top. Like Control, matches don’t take place across an entire battle royale map. Instead, there will be two featured points of interest for Gun Run: the original Skull Town in Kings Canyon and Fragment East in World’s Edge.
On these two maps, players run through a list of Summitarms. Instead of a free-for-all, like other types of Gun Game modes, Gun Run is a team effort. Each time a player kills, they jump over their teammates and receive the next weapon on the list.
For example, say part of the roster has the R-301 at level four, the Spitfire at level five, the Rampage at level six, and the R-99 at level seven. You are currently at level four with the R- 301, while one of your teammates is level six with a Rampage. If you kill with R-301, you will go to level seven and then receive R-99. If your Rampage-wielding teammate got a kill, they’d just go to level seven and get R-99, since they’re currently top of your team.
Gun Run is all about weapon proficiency, so players won’t have to worry about looting ammo or other items: all players have unlimited ammo for their equipped weapon, access to health items and automatic respawns. The mode also includes a “boost” tracker at the bottom of the screen that shows how many weapons you’ll jump if you kill with the weapon you’re currently using.
To use the example above again, if you were holding the R-301 and your teammate was holding the Rampage, your boost tracker would show “Boost +3” to show that you will skip three levels when you get your next boost. dead.
When you reach level 25, which is the final level, you will only receive a throwing knife. To win, a member of your team must kill with the throwing knife. Don’t worry if you’re not used to items like this: the Throwing Knife will be available in the Firing Range during Gun Run availability, so you can practice before heading into a match.
Gun Run will be available from September 20 to October 4 as part of the Beast of Prey event, so you have two weeks to try it out and fight for gun game supremacy for your team. If the mode proves popular, Respawn may bring it back in the future, as it did with Control and Armed and Dangerous. But there is no guarantee if or when he will return.
