Score More Loot with the Battle Pass
The Battle Pass is your ticket to tons of rewards: once you buy the pass, every level you gain during Season 1 unlocks a Battle Pass reward, like weapon skins, banner frames, XP boosts, and more. Over 100 rewards are yours for the taking, and you have the entire season to earn them all. Plus, you’ll score three Wild Frontier-themed Legend skins immediately when you purchase the pass.
You can get the Battle Pass from the in-game shop for 950 Apex Coins. Plus, you can earn enough Apex Coins through leveling the Battle Pass to purchase the next one without spending one real cent. To level up your Battle Pass even faster, snag the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins, unlocking your next 25 Battle Pass levels (and their rewards) automatically.
