Apex Legends Beast of Prey Event Gun Run Mode Explained

The newest limited-time game mode, called Gun Run enables players to go head-to-head against 3 other squads with randomized weapons that progress as you score kills. Each time the player scores a kill with a weapon, you leapfrog over teammates and are given the next highest weapon on the track. Players will have infinite ammo, plenty of health items and automatic respawns.

The next weapon is previewed above your current weapon, as well as the next one after that. The boost value lets you know how many weapons you will skip on the track with your next kill. When scoring, if the player is has the lead in their squad, they will simply move to the next weapon on the track without skipping any.

The final weapon in the track is a new exclusive throwing knife, For practice, the weapon will be available in the firing range during the entire event. Work together as a team and be the first squad to score a kill with the throwing knife to win the match!

The first squad to score a kill with the final weapon (throwing knife) will be able to secure victory. Gun Run will be available to play starting September 20th to October 4th on Skulltown and Fragment East (World’s Edge) maps.
