Apex Legends Mobile’s first season is in full swing and its first-ever limited-time mode, Quick Battle, has finally arrived. The new mode is already being hailed as a great option for players who don’t have much time to spare (or those who just want a good warm-up).
Quick Battle is similar to Apex Legends Mobile’s standard battle royale, but it has a few twists. Like Apex Mobile’s default Battle Royale mode, Quick Battle takes place on the World’s Edge map. But unlike Battle Royale, Quick Battle matches start with a much smaller starting ring and a smaller number of players. Only 10 teams can be loaded into the new LTM at a time, for a total of 30 players in each Quick Battle match.
Players who want to try out the new Quick Battle mode must first reach level 5, which is achieved by playing a few rounds of battle royale. Once players reach level 5, they can access Team Deathmatch and Quick Battle modes. Although the number of participants in each quick battle match is lower than the number of players in the battle royale, the smaller starting ring means that players will meet up much more frequently and can get into the action much faster than they can’t in the standard battle royale. Since your average Apex Mobile battle royale match can take up to 15 minutes to complete, Quick Battle is perfect for killing time when you don’t have much.
But players need to hurry if they want a chance to play the mobile game’s new quick mode, as Quick Battle mode is only available for a short time, from May 26 to May 29 – so players who want Trying it should take a page from Octane’s book and “Run fast. Hit fast. Win fast.”
