Ring Fury[ | ]

Ring Fury Icon

Ring Fury is a takeover of the normal Play Apex game mode, where an increasing amount of Ring Flares (smaller rings) spawn around the active playspace in addition to the primary ring which behaves as usual. Those who get caught in a Ring Flare take damage equal to the damage dealt by the current round’s Ring. You’ll be given a short warning on the map and minimap before the Ring Flare appears. Legends will call out if they are in direct danger or if there’s one opening up nearby. It's an escalation takeover, meaning that the number of Ring Flares will increase as the event goes on. A new item, the Heat Shield Heat Shield, protects legends from that Ring damage for a period of time before disappearing. Players also get 25% faster revives while in the shield, as long as the Ring is above it.[note 1]

Trivia[ | ]

  • Maggie was the announcer for the Ring Fury game mode.
  • The Nintendo Switch Nintendo Switch launch was actually about six hours after the event began, rather than happening with the release of the event.
  • The Chaos Theory Gambler Badge Badge's ring damage prevention requirement was reduced from 5,000 to 1,000 on the last day of the event to make it easier for people to complete the challenge.

Notes[ | ]

  1. The Heat Shield originally had 50% faster healing if the Ring is above it, but it was removed after the event ended, most likely for game balance.
  2. Was 5000 until March 22, 2021.
  3. All players who logged in during the event received this reward.
  4. Was originally named “Charged Conquistador”.
