When starting the games, the squads will start in a random POI with two teams. However, unlike the classic BR experience, in Straight Shot the weapons are already fully kitted, so there’s no need to loot for attachments, although scopes can be swapped between weapons.

Further, you won’t go back to the lobby to queue up, as you can do so from the spectate screen while in the match.

What is Lockdown LTM in Apex Legends?

Lockdown LTM is expected to feature a team deathmatch format in Apex Legends’ Season 20. However, we don’t have much information regarding how the mode will work. We’ll be sure to update this piece if Respawn reveal any details regarding the Lockdown LTM.
