Our Apex Legends Battle Pass Guide will walk you through everything you need to know on the first season of the Battle Pass in Apex Legends. We've got information on the release date, cost, future passes, and what will be included along with it!
The first Season of Apex Legends' Battle Pass is called Wild Frontier! There are over 100 unique items to earn if you are looking to take part in the season. There's new Legend and weapon skins, stat trackers, banners, quips, finishers, intros, and you can earn apex coins for leveling it up.
Apex Legends Battle Season 1 Release Date
The Season 1 Battle Pass was released on March 19th, 2019 at 10am PST.
Apex Legends Battle Pass Cost
The cost of the battle pass will be 950 Apex Coins. This will set you back $9.99 USD in the shop. You can also purchase the "Battle Pass Bundle" for 2,800 Apex Coins and get the Battle Pass, plus unlock your next 25 levels instantly. You can also purchase these through Amazon (purchasing through this link supports the site!) for yourself or as a gift for an Apex Legends fan!
Purchasing the battle pass will instantly unlock the Lifeline Revolutionary skin, the Wraith Survivor skin, and the Mirage Outlaw skin. If you can't decide if you'd like to purchase the Battle Pass, any progress you make towards it will be rewarded when you make the purchase. You keep all cosmetics you earn from the Battle Pass once the season ends.
Leveling Up the Battle Pass
Leveling up the Battle Pass will be focused on XP. There isn't going to be challenges to complete like in Fortnite. This can be viewed positively or negatively depending on how you feel about it personally. More information will be available on this tomorrow, according to a Community Manager on Reddit.
Bonus Legend XP
Playing with different Legends give a bonus based on your survival time, up to 25,000 Battle Pass Points per Legend each week.
It looks like if you spread your play between Legends you will get more experience towards your Battle Pass. Probably a good idea for anyone looking to level it up as fast as possible!
Battle Pass Rewards
Here's a look at all of the rewards you'll be able to earn if you level up your Battle Pass! You can click to enlarge the images. You will be able to earn 1,000 Apex Coins in total as confirmed by a Community Manager on Reddit. That means if you save them up, you'll be able to purchase the next Battle Pass for free!
Free Battle Pass Rewards

Free stuff is available every other level (2, 4, 6, etc.) until level 48 where you unlock the Rare Messenger Octane Skin.

BATTLE PASS FAQ
How do I buy the Battle Pass?
The Battle Pass can only be purchased in the in-game store using Apex Coins. Launch Apex Legends, navigate to the Battle Pass tab, and purchase the Battle Pass from there. If you need to purchase Apex Coins, you can do that in the store, too.
What happens if I buy my Battle Pass late in the season?
You’ll receive all the rewards up to your Battle Pass level (which is your current level for the season) retroactively! For example, if you’re on level 20 for the season when you buy the Battle Pass, you’ll unlock all rewards for every level up to 20, plus three special Battle Pass skins.
If you buy the Battle Pass Bundle, you’ll get the rewards for 25 levels in addition to the levels you’ve already reached. So, if you’re on level 20 for the season when you buy the Battle Pass Bundle, you’ll get all the rewards through level 45 and the three special Battle Pass skins.
Can I keep leveling my Season 1 Battle Pass after the season ends?
No, the rewards available in the Season 1 Battle Pass can only be earned until the season is over. After it ends, you won’t be able to earn new Wild Frontier content.
Do I keep my stuff after the season ends?
Yes! You keep every Battle Pass reward you’ve unlocked after the season is over.
What if I don’t buy the Battle Pass? Can I still earn rewards for free?
Yes. Even if you don’t purchase the Battle Pass, you can still earn the following items for free:
- 1 Wild Frontier Legend skin
- 5 Apex Packs
- 18 Wild Frontier stat trackers
If I buy the Battle Pass, can I also get the free rewards?
Yes! Everyone can earn the free rewards during Season 1.
Apex Legends Road Map
If you're curious about the future plans when it comes to Apex Legends in terms of the Battle Pass, new Characters/Legends, Weapons, and loot then the Year 1 Roadmap is a good start for information.
Each part of the year includes a new battle pass, legends, weapons, and new potential loot. We've already seen one gun added to the game (Havoc), and we'll be likely getting information really soon about the first season of the battle pass!
Leaked Battle Pass Information
Looks like Respawn wanted to quell some of the rumors about the Battle Pass and leaks surrounding it with the following response:
So between the datamining and the unintentional update about Season 1 on Origin today, there’s been a lot of speculation and confusion so we wanted to give some clarity:
- We’ll be providing details on Season 1, Battle Pass, and the next Legend very soon. It’s not coming out today.
- There’s lots of stuff that has been datamined from Apex since launch and is swirling around the Internet. We know this stuff is fun to dig up and speculate about, but you should not treat any of that info as a source of truth. There’s stuff in there that is very old, or things we’ve tried in the past and cut--remember our design process is to prototype and play lots of ideas--and some of it may be things we’re still building for Apex Legends. Finding this stuff by no means confirms that it’ll ever come out. At best you should treat any posts about this as a rumor and the real info will come from us when we’re ready to show off what’s coming next.
Thank you to everyone for staying patient through this and hang tight. We’re excited to get Season 1 kicked off and having you grinding on that Battle Pass with a new Legend to master soon.
The Battle Pass won't be coming out today (March 12th, 2019) but information will be released very soon!
Strap in folks, it looks like the Battle Pass is coming really soon! Some brief information about it appeared on the website, and with it came an announcement of a new Legend called Octane (learn more with our Octane Guide)! Along with that announcement came the price of the Battle Pass which will be 950 Apex Coins!
Welcome to the Wild Frontier
Survive the arena, meet the Apex Games' latest Legend, Octane, wield new weapons and score unique loot. The Season 01 Battle Pass is here, purchase it at the in-game store for 950 Apex Coins.
Update: Battle Pass Leaks
Some leaks have been found recently, by RealApexLeaks on Twitter. First image just displays some of the buttons that will be used in the menus.
Unlockable character skins confirmed.
Some kind of different background for the lobby with the battle pass.
There will be a "Battle Pass Bonus" which could be +XP or something of that nature.
There's some more leaks in this Tweet, some stuff about an icon for a free pass (there'll hopefully be a free option), a diamond level (maybe paid, maybe something else), and a details box.
