Apex Legends has officially launched its Legendary Hunt and battle royale fans can enjoy a plethora of new skins, challenges, and more within the online world that Respawn has built.
“Get ready to hunt the most dangerous game: the Legendary Hunt starts now,” boasts the studio regarding the newest event. “A new elite queue, themed rewards, bonus XP, and more are live for a limited time — check out the full schedule below, and happy hunting.”
There is also an Apex Elite Queue from July 4 through July 2nd. For those that make it into the top 5 in any match, they can earn their way into a special queue just for top winners. It’s a neat way to show off those bragging rights for being “gud” while also just giving another opportunity for more evenly matched matchmaking.
Battle Pass owners will have special access to a Night Terror Wraith skin and Prey R-301 weapon skin for doing the Hunt challenges. For everyone else:
- Legendary Hunt Badge — Finish in the Top 5 in any match.
- Rare Wolfpack G7 Scout weapon skin — Finish in the Top 5 in an Elite Top 5 match.
- Epic Master of the Hunt Bloodhound Legend skin — Finish in the Top 5 five times in any queue (consecutive or nonconsecutive).
- Legendary Tamed Beast Triple Take weapon skin — Win twice in any queue (consecutive or nonconsecutive).
Apex Legends players will also get bonus XP during the event, with a double XP weekend event kicking off on June 7th at 10AM PT until June 10th at the same time.
The fun has already started for Apex Legends, which is free-to-play now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
