Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 Patch Notes Reveal New Battle Pass, New LTM, and New Ordnance

Respawn Entertainment has released the official patch notes for the second season of Apex Legends Mobile, titled Cold Snap. Loba will be the first Legend of the upcoming season, as it was made clear earlier this week — but when Season 2: Cold Snap is out tomorrow, May 14th at 5pm PT / 8pm ET Apex Legends Mobile will have plenty of other surprises when it launches.

According to a blog post on the official Apex Legends Mobile website, developers are addressing some specific in-game issues with the Cold Snap update.

Four main questions

  • Dissatisfaction with the ranking system
  • How bans are handled in normal play
  • Pairing optimization
  • Performance optimization of devices and servers

Read on for all the changes coming to Apex Legends Mobile this season.

a not so fresh legend

Loba will join other Apex Mobile Legends in Dropship this season, and her skills are identical to those of Apex Legends on console and PC (presumably without the bugs that plagued her tactical abilities in the original game for years). Loba will be purchased in the store, but can also be unlocked by reaching level 25 of the Coldstream Battle Pass.

In addition to her standard skills, Loba — like every other Legendary character in the mobile game — will have her own set of unique equippable perks, though those won’t be revealed until after the season begins. However, the developers did reveal some of these benefits in a blog post. Loba’s perks include the ability to get extra loot from crates and steal banners from her teammates, an ability very similar to the recently leaked Remote Banner Restoration Survival item that may be added to Apex on console and PC in the future.

new LTM

Armed and Dangerous — the popular shooter-sniper mode that was the first LTM to debut in Apex Legends’ console and PC versions — will make its mobile debut this season.

Town Takeover and New Ammo: Snow Grenade

Once Cold Snap is activated, the Climatizer on World’s Edge will open and close during the match, covering parts of World’s Edge with a layer of snow. Frosted Loot Boxes will appear on the map when the Climatizer is on. Looting these frosted loot chests (and the death chests of enemies who looted the frosted loot chests) will reward players with diamonds, which can be used to purchase rare items in the Cold Wave seasonal store.

Another grim addition to the game is the Snow Grenade, a new throwable item that deals damage and slows enemies when detonated.

seasonal store

Players can collect diamonds to spend in Cold Snap’s new seasonal store. Diamonds can be found in loot boxes during matches, on killed enemies, or by completing in-game quests.
