One of the most exciting parts of the Unshackled event, the ultra-popular limited-time mode, Flashpoint is back in action! Play on Olympus as you never have before, in Flashpoint, healing items are removed from the loot pool and replaced by “Flashpoint Zones”. These zones are large areas that heal all Legends inside them.

Naturally, these locations become major hot spots and procure intense combat for players attempting to survive. Hop back into the action beginning 19th April when the Apex Legends Unshackled event begins.
