The long-awaited season 2 battle pass for Apex Legends is finally here. And it seems like a truly massive improvement over its predecessor. The new season has brought a boatload of new changes to the King’s Canyon map (including some very dangerous wildlife). But the battle pass itself also promises improvements like daily and weekly challenges, more Legendary cosmetics, new item categories, and a whole lot more. If you fell off Apex Legends before, now might be the time to jump back in. So why don’t we jump into our season 2 battle pass guide for Apex Legends right now? Let’s go!

How Much Does the Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass Cost?
Players can purchase the basic season 2 battle pass for 950 Apex Coins ($9.50 USD). Alternatively, you can drop 2800 Apex Coins ($28 USD) for a battle pass that starts at a higher level. Leveling the pass is as simple as playing matches — any XP you gain will go towards your level, as usual, but also to your battle pass. Although this time around, the pass comes with daily and weekly challenges — giving you something new to do every time you log in, as well as making leveling easier than ever.
There are a couple of twists this time, too. When the season begins, you’ll start making progress on the battle pass whether you purchased it or not. That means you won’t “waste” any XP you get if you decide to buy the pass later in the season. In addition, your Apex Legends weekly challenges will carry over throughout the season. Even if you miss a week (or three) you can still finish all of the challenges. You can even play them all in a single seven-day span!
Finally, that season 2 battle pass bundle will unlock the first 25 levels of the pass. That means you can either buy at the beginning of the season to jump straight to level 25, or hold off and buy it down the road to unlock the next 25 levels worth of rewards. This will net you the “Prince of Darkness” Legendary skin for Caustic right off the bat.
How Many Rewards Are in the Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass?
By leveling the battle pass, you’ll earn a range of cosmetics for your Legends and weapons. There are 100 levels to the pass, and you’ll get increasingly rare rewards as you climb the ranks. At level 100, you’ll unlock a new skin, “Iron Rampage,” for the R-301.
Even if you don’t have the time or energy to finish the pass, there are plenty of good rewards in the lower levels. Season 2 now includes more legendary rewards throughout — as well as three entirely new types of cosmetics: skydive emotes, music packs, and loading screens. Buying the pass alone will further unlock three exclusive gold character skins for Pathfinder, Gibraltar, and Bangalore, as well as the Legendary “Intimidator” skin for the Spitfire LMG.
You don’t even have to buy the season 2 battle pass in Apex Legends to get some rewards. Just playing the game during season 2 will five Apex Packs (a.k.a. loot boxes), season 2 stat trackers, and the “Hot Rod” skin for Wattson. Respawn has a full list of the rewards, though they don’t show details about items like voice clips.
It’s worth noting that Battle Pass items will never appear in the rotating shop.
When Does Apex Legends Season 2 Start?
The second battle pass is available now, starting on July 2, 2019. It coincides with the second season of Apex Legends and the addition of a new Legend called Wattson. In honor of this electrifying character, Respawn has dubbed this new season “Battle Charge.”
When Does Apex Legends Season 2 End?
Just like the first season, there is no hard and fast end date just yet. However, we do know that each season runs approximately three months. It’s safe to say that the season will end sometime in late September or early October 2019.
Will There Ever Be Legends in the Battle Pass?
No! At least Respawn says there won’t be. The Battle Pass will only ever include cosmetics that do not have an impact on actual gameplay, as well as in-game currencies that let you buy whatever you like.
