The full patch notes include details of the LTM, Armed & Dangerous, as well as the updates to Seer, weapons and the firing range.

You can check out Horizon’s Heirloom here too. Here are the patch notes, via Respawn:


Big damage is abound with this returning limited-time mode. Your talent will be put to the test with two vastly different weapon types: shotguns and snipers. Looking for more bang? Check the replicator for a Fully Kitted Peacekeeper or Charge Rifle. This is the only way to grab the Charge Rifle in this LTM as it has been removed from ground loot.
