As Season 15 for Apex Legends rumbles on, it's time for a brand-new collection event to arrive in the hugely popular battle royale. The Apex Legends Spellbound collection event sees a wealth of new content including an opportunity to obtain a coveted heirloom for the best Apex Legends characters.

Just like previous collection events, you'll need to earn a variety of items in order to obtain the Heirloom. In addition to the items, there's a returning LTM and a few balancing changes in a bid to level the playing field.

When is the Apex Legends Spellbound collection event?

The Spellbound event runs for two weeks starting on January 10 and ending on January 24. It's a relatively short window to earn all of the items but it's certainly achievable.

Apex Legends Spellbound event Seer heirloom

Seer is the latest Legend to receive a coveted heirloom. The item is a unique set of sickles that sit above his knuckles. When activated, they extend, retract, and look like they deal plenty of damage if anyone gets too close for comfort.

To get your hands on the heirloom, earn all 24 items in the collection by opening Apex packs, purchasing them in the store, or crafting them.

Apex Legends Control LTM

Alongside the variety of cosmetic items, the Spellbound collection event also includes the return of the Control LTM. The mode will be live throughout the event and will contain the following map rotation:

  • Olympus: Hammond Labs
  • World's Edge: Laval Siphon
  • Storm Point: Barometer

Respawn Entertainment also details a few adjustments to the mode:

  • oin In Progress extended further into match ( Matchmaking will try to fill empty player slots until 1 team has a score of 625 or there is a score difference of 300 between the teams)
  • Players that join a match in progress get some helpful boosts for their first spawn:
    • Skip the first spawn wave
    • Spawn with Purple Armor and Helmet
    • Get a full Ratings Tier ( Purple Weapons and an Ultimate Charge)
  • Added new end-of-match XP reward to Control (150 XP for completing a match).
  • If a team is losing by a score of 62 or more, they skip spawn waves.
  • Added Distance Indicator on the MRB in-world Icon.
  • Added Time Remaining Indicator on the MRB spawn point Map Icon.
  • Display a hint message when MRB placement is not possible explaining why placement is failing (too close to friendly or enemy Home Base, too close to a Zone).
  • Bloodhound clues clean up after 30 secs instead of 90 secs.
  • Clean up Bloodhound clues when the player that left them behind dies (except for the player death clue).
  • Some more spawn tuning to further try to prevent players from spawning close to enemies.
  • Set the Inventory Tab as the default ( instead of Scoreboard ) when accessing menus during gameplay.
  • Updates to Loadouts in the Loadout Selection Menu based on Weapon Meta Changes
  • Bug and Crash Fixes
