Season 5 of Apex Legends has been a fantastic success in many ways. The content has been fresh, the updates have been plentiful, and the issues are minimal. In particular, the recent Lost Treasures Collection Event was one of Respawn Entertainment’s finest works. The developer introduced a flurry of new mechanics and game modes that kept players coming back. However, there were some strings of content that came out of the event that weren’t made public. As the event update went live, dataminers were able to find evidence of an Apex Legends “Campfire Limited-Time Mode (LTM).
The Apex Legends Campfire LTM
This rumored mode was found within the game files of Apex Legends. With some game updates, dataminers are able to discover future content as Respawn adds strings of code. In this case, leakers were able to see a game mode named “Campfire.”
As with any leak, this is all unconfirmed information. Respawn could easily pull the plug on or alter the game mode, so take these details with a grain of salt. That said, this does look to be in its final stages, so it’s more likely than not we’ll see this in-game sometime soon. You can take a look at the model for the Apex Legends Campfires down below, courtesy of @Shrugtal.

Essentially, the Campfire LTM will place small fires all over the Apex Legends map, though we don’t know which map will be used. These fires will apparently act exactly like the Campfires from Fortnite, in that they will replenish health if you stand near them.
The LTM will simply be about using fires to heal, rather than finding healing items on the ground. Dataminer Shrugtal went over what he found about the mode in a recent YouTube video.
According to Shrugtal, there will be far fewer healing items in this LTM, making Campfires that much more important. He doesn’t offer a release date, but did note it could arrive in the coming weeks.
