Apex Legends Season 8 is officially live, so it’s time to blow everything and everyone up. Revolving around the new legend Fuse, players will get to explore a radically altered Kings Canyon, try a new weapon, and unlock a whole bunch of new cosmetics. Similar to previous seasons, there’s a battle pass for players to purchase and work on. Consisting of 100 tiers of rewards, you can obtain everything from Legendary skins to music to loading screens to gun charms. While the pass itself costs money, you will need to put in some work if you want all the new cosmetics.
Here’s how the Season 8 Battle Pass works:
How to Increase Your Battle Pass Level
To increase your level in the Battle Pass you will need to earn 10 Stars. Every challenge, regardless if it’s Daily or Weekly, rewards a specific amount of stars. Reaching 10 will automatically increase your level and any additional Stars earned will count towards the next rank. XP will now make progress towards earning a single star which will help increase your battle pass rank. It takes a fair amount of experience to actually rank up this way, so you’ll be using XP as a supplementary method to raise your rank — especially once you hit level 100.
Challenges are broken up into Daily and Weekly once again only now they all reward players with stars. Daily Challenges now rotate out every 24 hours and include five different objectives. These are all relatively easy, which explains why the amount of stars earned is so low. You can change what a Daily Objective is by highlight the circular arrows next to it. This will cost Legend Tokens, but it’s a good way to ensure you get a challenge that’s easy to finish.
Inversely, Weekly Challenges unlock every seven days and a little more difficult to finish. You will earn stars for completing these, so you’ll want to make sure to focus on them. Weekly Challenges do not rotate, so if you take a week off that week’s challenges will still be unlocked when you return. These can be as simple as dealing damage with a weapon or legend specific challenges such as moving teammates with Pathfinder’s zip-line. The most difficult Weekly Challenges will reward you with a full Battle Pass tier. These are noted by the Battle Pass symbol next to them instead of a star.
There are no reoccurring Weekly Challenges, so always prioritize Daily Challenges first since these will vanish every 24 hours. Also, try to make progress towards multiple challenges at once, as this will ease the amount of grinding you’ll need to do. Remember, you have a lot of time to actually complete the battle pass, so don’t feel as if you need to rush through. If you really don’t have a lot of time, Respawn Entertainment allows players to buy Battle Pass levels for Apex Coins. I only suggest this avenue if you have absolutely no time to play the game and still want all the cosmetics. Otherwise, it’s better to just save your money!
