Apex Legends Gaiden Event Announced

Apex goes anime!

EA and Respawn Entertainment has recently announced the Apex Legends Gaiden Event.

Apex Legends Gaiden Event Start

The upcoming Apex Legends Gaiden Event will be coming to Apex Legends starting on July 19, 2022. This is just like the Awakening Collection Event where players can collect tons of cosmetics with a Mythic skin for players who obtain all the themed cosmetics.

Grab All 40 Cosmetics

Fans of anime series will have the time of their life as they will be able to grab 40 adventurous event-limited cosmetics. These will include Legendary skins for Revenant, Mirage, Octane, and Wattson with complementary skins for the Flatline, Wingman, EVA-8, and Charge Rifle. The skins are based from anime series characters like Monkey D. Luffy, Jonin outfit, My Hero Academia themed skin, and more.

Armed and Dangerous Mode is Back

Armed and Dangerous limited-time mode is making a comeback where the weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns. The loot is also much harder to find in this mode. It will be available from July 19, 2022 to August 2, 2022 with World’s Edge, Olympus, and Storm Point as the map rotation.
