What is heat wave in Apex Legends?
Heatwave is in the new temporary mode Apex Legends as part of the Sun Squad Collection event. In this game mode, heat waves are regularly activated during the match, causing you to take damage from the sun. You have to go inside or take cover under objects to avoid the sun’s rays.
