Our Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass Guide will walk you through everything you need to know on the second 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!
Apex Legends Battle Season 2 Release Date
Apex Legends Battle Pass Season 2 will be releasing on July 2nd, and it is called Battle Charge!
New Gun Coming to Season 2: L-Star Plasma Fueled EMG
The L-Star is a new Legendary weapon that can only be found in Supply Drops. It's fully automatic, and fires plasma ammunition. Like the other weapons from the Supply Drops, you can't replenish the ammunition.
Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass Cost
The following are the costs of the Season 1 Battle Pass, it is unlikely that the prices will change.
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!
Season 2 Battle Pass Improvements
A lot of players were pretty disappointed with the first season of the battle pass, so they've gone back to the drawing board on somethings and will be doing the following changes in Season 2:
- Level up via Daily and Weekly Challenges.
- Time to Battle Pass level 100 should be significantly reduced.
- Three additional Legendary skins added to the rewards track.
- Three entirely new content categories replace badge and stat tracker rewards.
- You’ll earn enough Crafting Metal rewards from the full reward track to craft a Legendary item, or whatever your heart desires.
Here's some more detailed information from their official post:
Daily/Weekly Challenges and Improving the Grind
Starting in Season 2, you’ll be able to complete a mix of Daily and Weekly Challenges to level up your Battle Pass. If you miss a few weeks or start late, your Weekly Challenges will still be around for you when you return, and you can complete them all at once.
While we don’t want to introduce wacky challenges that drastically warp the way you play the game, these challenges should provide some interesting variation from game-to-game. This means all players should feel more rapid Battle Pass progression and the journey will hopefully be more fun and interesting. Also, this addition should allow players who can only dedicate a few hours a week to the game to make a very deep cut into their Battle Pass progression.
We’re adding three Legendary items to the Battle Pass and there will now be a Legendary item every 25 Battle Pass levels in the premium track, including at purchase (that’s level 1, level 25, level 50, level 75, and level 100). Our goal is to have a nice balance of cool character exclusives and cosmetics for everyone (like weapon skins). The level 100 reward will be an evolving weapon skin with a special recolor version for those players who make it to level 110.
New Cosmetic Types and No Badge or Stat Tracker Rewards on Premium Path
We removed badges and basic stat trackers completely from the premium Battle Pass rewards track for Season 2. You’ll still get a seasonal badge, but it’ll be a single, evolving badge that won’t take up any additional reward slots! We’ve kept seasonal win trackers in the free path, and they will all be earnable in the first 10 levels.
You’ll also be able to earn items from three new content categories in place of badges/trackers. We’ll be revealing details about these categories closer to the launch of Season 2.
Earn Enough Crafting Metals for a Legendary Item
We’re replacing the Voice Lines with Crafting Metal rewards. You’ll now be able to earn enough Crafting Metals (1,200) to craft the Legendary item of your choosing. So, if there’s an existing item you’ve been coveting, you’ll be able to get it in Season 2. You can still get additional Crafting Metals from the various Apex Pack rewards in the Battle Pass as well.
More information is going to be revealed via a livestream at 10am PST on Saturday, June 8th, 2019.
At 10:00 a.m. PST on Saturday, June 8, we’ll be sharing some of the first details on Apex Legends Season 2 as part of our EA PLAY livestream. Today, we want to tell you about just a few of the high-level improvements you can expect from our second Battle Pass.
Season 2 Leaks
There's not a ton of leaks floating around for the season, but we know we should be expecting a new Legend during Season 2. That has most likely been leaked, and all signs point to it being Wattson. Some information has been revealed on this new Legend, she'll have electrical abilities and something called a Tesla Trap! You can find out more about her with our Wattson Guide!
