Apex Legends x Post Malone event skins may introduce a new rarity level for skins

Apex Legends is teaming up with artist Post Malone for a special one-off event, which will introduce a new limited-time mode, and a set of very unique skins, in part designed with Posty himself.

Post Malone is a big gamer, and Apex is his favorite game – he said as much last year when he dabbled in some Twitch streaming, explaining that he loves the BR genre, and for him, Apex is the best.

Clearly, Respawn took notice, and so a collaboration was set in motion, with the Post Malone event starting in Apex Legends on November 7.

Here’s what you can look forward to.

Three Strikes LTM

The highlight of the event will be the Three Strikes LTM. Certainly unlike anything we’ve had in Apex before, as the name implies, you will have ‘three strikes’ before you are out. That means, if your squad is eliminated, don’t worry – you’ll all come back.

Unless, that is, you have been eliminated for a third time, in which case you are finally eliminated for good.

  • When your team is wiped, you all respawn with your gear, but you get a strike
  • 3 strikes and you’re out.
  • Downed players cannot be damaged
  • Reviving is crazy fast – you can do it in the middle of firefights
  • Mirage and lifeline are very strong in this mode thanks to the fast revives

The event lasts two weeks, with this mode available for the full two weeks.

Event cosmetics

Post Malone is a fashion icon, and he’s bringing some of his signature style to Apex. He worked closely with the team at Respawn to design exclusive new skins, inspired by his looks from music videos or concerts.

The designs are not too outlandish though, as Respawn ensured they still fit within the tone of Apex Legends generally.

  • Octane – Touch of Style
  • Wraith – Acid Wraith
  • Lifeline – Runaway Hit
  • Horizon – Hidden Blossoms

These skins are certainly unlike anything we’ve seen before in Apex, and it’s also unclear if they will ever make a comeback, so you might only have one opportunity to pick them up.
