The highly anticipated Battle Pass for Apex Legends released on March 19, and fresh leaks are already hinting that new XP rewards or events might be coming to the game.
Apex Legends leaker ‘RealApexLeaks’ found lines of text that strongly suggest huge XP bonuses are on their way for Battle Pass owners which will make climbing the various tiers less of a pain.

Various files hidden in the new Battle Pass seemed to be named after upcoming iterations of special XP events such as ‘XpEventTypeDate_BattlePassOnly’ and ‘XpEventTypeDate_GetBattlePassFrac.’
Further, a heading called ‘BattlePass Specific XP’ hint at awards being on the way with notes that read ‘xp_first_kill_amount 500.’ Though it’s not concrete, the files indicate that Respawn Entertainment has at least planned for some sort of reward to those with the Battle Pass.
Though it seems people on a player’s friends list could also benefit from a Battle Pass as a file called ‘xp_friend_boost_amount 3.0’ was found. Apex fans will have to wait to see if this means an XP multiplier or something else is coming to the game.
Finally, a file named ‘battlepass_character_max_xp 25000’ and ‘battlepass_character_max_weekly_xp 25000’ could suggest that Battle Pass owners will be able to acquire extra XP throughout a given week by playing with different Legends.
The Apex Legends Season 1 release will have tons of players finding every avenue to gain XP, and hopefully Respawn implements some of these ideas to make the grind a bit easier.
