Following Apex Legends Mobile’s enormous success, Respawn has released the game’s first significant update, which includes a new fan-favorite legend, a new Battle Pass, a limited-time game mode, and more. So, without further ado, let’s dig into the specifics of Apex Legends Mobile’s new Cold Snap update.
Apex Legends Mobile Cold Snap Update Details
Following its global launch last month, Apex Legends Mobile has quickly become one of the most popular mobile games. Respawn now wants to develop the game and provide users more content so they can enjoy the fast-paced battle royale.
Loba is a new legend
Respawn has revealed that Loba will be added to Apex Legends Mobile, starting with the new legend. If you are unfamiliar with Loba from the game’s PC and console versions, she is a fan-favorite legend known for her unique loot-focused powers and the fact that she can teleport herself out of a chaotic scenario.
Her passive ability, Eye For Quality, allows players to view nearby Epic and Legendary loot items through walls, while her tactical ability, Burglars Best Friend, allows players to instantaneously teleport to a nearby spot by throwing a Jump Drive bracelet there. Her ultimate power, the Black Market Boutique, allows her to set up a mobile shop at a certain spot and collect all of the riches in the area.
The Climatizer Takeover and a New Limited Time Mode
The Cold Snap update introduces a new limited-time game mode called Armed and Dangerous, in which players are given shotguns or sniper rifles. There will be no automatic or other types of firearms available in the arena, such as the R-99, Flatline, Prowler, or Havoc.

Apart from that, the World’s Edge map will be taken over by a new Climatizer. During combat, the Climatizer will turn on and off automatically from time to time. When it’s turned on, players will see that specific area of the map become snow-covered. They’ll also be able to get goods from special Frosted loot boxes, such as new throwable Snow Grenades that harm and slow adversaries when thrown.
Cold Snap has a new Battle Pass, as well as a new Seasonal Shop
Apex Legends Mobile will receive a new Battle Pass as part of the new release. Cold Snap will succeed the existing Prime Time battle pass and will feature new ice-themed cosmetic items such as legend and pistol skins. Players will receive 800 Syndicate Gold after completing the Cold Snap Premium or Premium Plus Battle Pass. Additionally, players who have purchased or will purchase the Prime Time battle pass before the current season expires will get 50 Syndicate Gold and a Syndicate Pack via their in-game mailbox once the season has ended.
Players will also notice a new Seasonal Shop with brand new in-game goodies such as weapon skins, treasure crates, and more, in addition to the new battle pass. During a battle, players can gather diamonds from loot boxes and use them to purchase stuff from the new Seasonal Shop.
Aside from that, Respawn has listed a number of known flaws in the game. To begin with, the team improved Wraith’s base appearance, corrected Octane’s inaccurate voiceover callouts when utilising the jump pad, and rectified an issue where Mirage players experienced lag after triggering the ultimate, among other things.
The developers also indicated that they made some changes to the game’s matchmaking system in the official patch notes for the release. Furthermore, Respawn has modified the technologies that affect their servers in order to eliminate lag and provide ideal gaming performance.
