Apex Legends screenshot of Wraith from the Voidwalker event

After an extremely slow and barren Season 1, it would appear that Respawn has come better prepared for Season 2. Just last month we've had an Octane themed event alongside a bunch of new cosmetics, and already we're getting the same sort of treatment, just with a bit of a Wraith flair to it.

Much like the Octane event, the Voidwalker update has redesigned an area to highlight some of Wraith's story, as well as to make a previously boring part of the map just a little bit more exciting. And thankfully, the new rework has managed to do just that by adding some lovely in-door areas to fight in, as well as a giant portal to fling yourself through!

Besides the new zone, the Voidwalker event has also brought in a new limited time game mode - Armed and Dangerous. It's essentially a "shotguns and snipers only" mode where high tier armor and helmets are unavailable, so combat is fast and frantic regardless of distance. A little bit too chaotic for my taste, but there's certainly something satisfying about blowing enemies apart with just a single shot.

Naturally, there's also a whole bunch of new cosmetics to collect, both free and paid. While there are less cosmetic items than in the previous update, I am extremely happy to say that you won't have to gamble on getting the one you want this time around - they'll all be available for purchase through the in-game store!

You can check out all of the cosmetics, as well as the full patch notes, over at the official website. And as a final note, I'll leave you with the brief trailer. Enjoy!
