Respawn has revealed its rewards for Apex Legends ranked play, as Series 1 (part of Season 2) is set to end on the last day of September, ahead of the launch of Season 3.

Season 3 of Apex Legends is right around the corner. Named ‘Fire and Ice’, according to leaked game files, the new season will reportedly featured the new legend Crypto, a new battle pass loaded with new skins and rewards, and reportedly some new weapons as well.


Season 2 comes to an end soon, which saw the release of the first Apex Legends battle pass, a new legend in Wattson, and series 1 of ranked mode. As the first series of ranked mode comes to an end, Respawn has revealed exclusive rewards for players who obtained certain ranks.

Players who competed in series 1 of ranked play will earn a weapon charm and a badge that features the highest rank they obtained. Those ranks are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator.


New ranked rewards also feature a collection of skydive trails. Diamond ranked players will get a Thor-like lightning trail, as will those who achieved the Apex Predator rank.

As Apex Legends approaches its third season and its second series of ranked play, Respawn has indicated that they are putting more eggs into the competitive basket going forward. Respawn announced the rewards for the first series of ranked play during the $500k Preseason Invitational in Krakow.

Several high profile esports teams are at the Preseason Invitational, including NRG Esports, Natus Vincere, TSM, Virtus.pro, Team Secret, Fnatic, G2, Sentinels, and more.

With a new focus on improving the competitive aspect of their battle royale title, we can expect Respawn to offer more rewards for its ranked play in future series.

Season 3 is set to start in October, when a new series of Ranked Play will also presumably start up, with even more rewards.


Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.


Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.


Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
