Legendary Hunt event
Apex Elite Queue
The first long awaited addition with the Legendary Hunt event is the Apex Elite Queue. Players can test themselves against other top ranked players in this exclusive game mode. By making it to the top 5 in any match, they gain access. They can then enter into a limited queue with other top 5 winners.
There is also a rule that prevents accidental players from getting lucky and entering the queue. In order to continue playing in the queue, players have to keep placing in the top 5.
Legendary Hunt challenge rewards
Players can compete for a set of limited-time challenges and earn a variety of Rare, Epic, and Legendary skins.
Legendary Hunt store skins
Every three-to-four days during the event, there are different Legendary Hunt-themed skins available. These will be open for purchase in the in-game store, which will encourage players to participate.
Two additional Legendary skins for all Battle Pass owners
Players that have the Wild Frontier Battle Pass get additional rewards. They will automatically get the Legendary Honored Prey R-301 skin.
Players who reach Battle Pass level 15 before the end of the event will also get a special reward. This will be the Wraith Night Terror Legendary skin.
Bonus XP event
Double XP weekend
From Friday, June 7 through Monday, June 10, players can earn double XP on base progression and Battle Pass progression.
Battle Pass Bonus XP
Players that finish top 5 in any match will earn an entire Battle Pass level. This is limited to once per day.
Since the event is the first of its kind and only lasts two weeks, players should make sure to check it out.
