Respawn Hasn’t Decided If Apex Legends’ Solo Mode Is Permanent Or Temporary

Twitch Prime Ash Operator Set Apex Legends Players Are Dominating Solos Mode By Teaming Up

Solos is meant to be 1v1 solo matches, where it's a battle to the last death between 60 Apex Legends players.

Apex Legends has introduced a solo game mode that has attracted a ton of new players.

Apex Legends added its limited time solo mode on August 13 and while that was welcomed by the community, some aren't too happy with what they found behind the event.

Respawn paying streamers to play Apex on stream both during its launch and the addition of Solos has only added fuel to this argumental-fire, with many calling on the developer to stop trying to attract new players and focus on content to keep the already existing playerbase. The mode is somewhat of a tester to see if it would do well as a permanent game mode in the long run, and time will tell if it sticks around for good.

The event also features something called Octane Town Takeover, which converted part of the King's Canyon map into an Octane-themed area where players can "check out the mega jump pad course and Ring of Fire to eliminate enemy squads in style".

However, not even those players will get the weapon for free.

The Iron Crown Collection Event is one of the few events that the game has held since its launch in February.

But, clearly, the aggressive microtransactions are leaving a bad taste in the mouth of many players, who are now being given a strong reminder that the game is published by EA, who have received more than their share fair of criticism over in-game revenue systems in recent years. Each pack brings a total of three items.

The event has brought back many players who had moved on or were barely playing the game.

Furthermore, to unlock an exclusive Bloodhound Heirloom Set, players must open all 24 packs before it becomes available for additional purchase - which makes the end price point around the $200 mark. Whether that's teaming up to kill folks or meeting up to shoot each other and artificially increase your damage stats, there are a lot of ways to game the current system.
