Respawn recently announced a new Halloween-themed LTM gameplay mode, Shadow Royale for apex legends. Now it’s available to play in the game. It will also reward you with trackers, skins, and some badges.
Shadow Royale Gameplay
Shadow Royale mode is just like a normal battle royal with few very interesting twists. First up it takes place after the dark meaning it’s a night time. In the Shadow Royal instead of dying you turn into a Shadow.
Shadows can’t use weapons or abilities but they do have increased melee damage, Faster sprint speed, and unlimited wall climbing range. You can also revive your fallen teammates while being in the Shadow form.
You will respawn after some time if you get killed as a shadow. However, respawn time will get longer each time. You will continue to come back as Shadow as long as at least one member of your squad is alive.
Every member of the squad also gets a Resurrection knockdown shield by default. In order to win there should be only one squad that should be left with at least one member alive.
Additionally, the entire map has a Halloween theme. For example when you open supply bins. A scary spider will come out of it suddenly. You can destroy them to get some valuable loot.
Remember, Shadow Royale mode does give XP. However progress made in this mode won’t affect your stats and normal quests. It will only fulfill event special quests.
Tip: Shadow Royale has a night mode and it’s kinda hard to spot enemies in the dark. So, try to get bloodhound in your squad. His ability to spot enemies will make your life easier.
