Apex Legends Upcoming Event Brings Fan-Favorite Game Mode Back for a Limited Time

Dressed to Kill Event Respawn Entertainment

The Dressed to Kill collection event for Apex Legends goes live from June 20 to July 4. The upcoming affair will bring back a popular game mode for a limited time: Armed & Dangerous.

For those who are not familiar, Armed & Dangerous is a limited-time mode (LTM) in Apex Legends where every weapon in the pool is removed except for shotguns and sniper rifles. Now, if you're a fan of the Charge Rifle, go ahead and visit the Replicator because it is the only way for you to get this particular weapon. That's because the developers removed it from ground loot in this LTM.
