Apex Legends Season 2 launches July 2 and with it comes daily and weekly challenges, something that Respawn went into more detail about with a new blog post.

After an underwhelming Season 1 that quickly ran out of content for players to do, Respawn ramped it up by promising an improved battle pass and new challenges.

Having a set of daily and weekly challenges will give players more content to do, in return giving them more reason to keep on playing every day.

While it's pretty easy to guess what these challenges are, Respawn still explained what we expect with them and how they will work. If you've played Fortnite Battle Royale at all, then you should feel right at home with this implementation.

The weekly challenges will take longer to finish, hence why they are weekly, but the daily ones shouldn't take too long to knock out.

How do challenges work?

The daily challenges reset each day and are chosen randomly from a pool of over 200 challenges ranging from things like playing a game as a certain Legend or doing a certain amount of damage.

These are quite simple but the weekly challenges ask a bit more as you'll have to do things ranging from looting 100 Epic items or getting 20 kills with a certain Legend. With enough playtime, you shouldn't have any problems.

Each week, you'll have three challenges that reset on their own if you don't finish them and they include the following, as laid out in the blog post:

  • Complete five Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
  • Complete 10 Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
  • Earn 9,000 STARS and/or match XP – Rewards one Battle Pass level
    • This quest may be repeated an unlimited number of times each week.
    • Each completion increases the STARS and/or match XP required for the next by 9,000, up to a maximum of 54,000. You need 9,000 for the first level, 18,000 for the second level, etc. This challenge resets to 9,000 each week.

Respawn stresses that STARS are tied to the Battle Pass only and do not impact the Account Level progress. These new challenges will be available once Season 2 launches. 

You can read the blog post in its entirety below.

Could Apex challenge Fortnite again?

Hey all,

Lead Product Manager Lee Horn (Leeeeeee-RSPN) here with an overview of the Season 2 Battle Pass Challenges system. We heard your feedback on the Season 1 grind and created a system which should allow for significantly greater Battle Pass progress with less grind over less time for players who return on a regular basis and maximize their Challenge resets.

With the launch of Season 2, you’ll be able to complete Daily and Weekly Challenges to level up your Battle Pass. As we’ve previously mentioned, we’re endeavoring to balance gameplay purity with variety and fun, so none of this Season’s challenges will require a YouTube tutorial to figure out.

More than half of your Weekly Challenges will grant an entire Battle Pass level as a reward. The remaining Daily & Weekly Challenges grant STARS which, combined with match XP, contribute to a repeatable Weekly Challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. STARS are XP specific to Battle Pass, meaning STARS do not impact Account Level progression.

Daily Challenges

Each day, you will receive three new Daily Challenges chosen randomly from a pool of over two hundred. These challenges range from “Deal 200 Damage in Bunker” to “Play 1 game as Lifeline” and are intended to be achievable in a short play session. Complete your daily challenge and earn 3,000 STARS each.

Your challenge pool will reset every day, so be sure to check back regularly to maximize Battle Pass progress. 

Weekly Challenges

Each week, you will receive a set of seven new Weekly Challenges. These challenges are intended to take several play sessions to complete and range from "Get 20 Kills as Gibraltar, Bangalore, or Mirage” to “Loot 100 Epic items.” Four of the Weekly Challenges are worth 6,000 STARS each (24,000 STARS total) and three of the Weekly Challenges grant an entire Battle Pass level each upon completion.

Starting the season late? No problem – you’ll get access to all previous Weekly Challenges at one. So, if you start in Week 3, you’ll get access to Week 1, 2, and 3 challenges immediately (21 in total). 

Weekly Resetting Challenges

Each week, you’ll have an additional set of three special resetting Weekly Challenges. These are the same every week and refresh even if you haven’t completed them. Keep a careful eye on these to make maximum Battle Pass progress.

  • Complete five Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
  • Complete 10 Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
  • Earn 9,000 STARS and/or match XP – Rewards one Battle Pass level
    • This quest may be repeated an unlimited number of times each week.
    • Each completion increases the STARS and/or match XP required for the next by 9,000, up to a maximum of 54,000. You need 9,000 for the first level, 18,000 for the second level, etc. This challenge resets to 9,000 each week.

We hope the Battle Pass progression structure for Season 2 feels way more rewarding! As always, we appreciate all the support and feedback from the community as we continue to iterate and improve Apex Legends.
