Season 1 of the which prompted a response from Respawn Entertainment themselves.

However, one legendary skin in particular – which will be a grind to capture – looks like it may be worth the effort to secure.

Respawn EntertainmentFans could soon jump into Kings Canyon with the game’s first reactive skin in hand.

Reddit users picked up on an earlier comment made by one of the Respawn Entertainment devs, Leeeeeee-RSPN, in the post about of the philosophy behind Apex Legends Season 1 that gave a little insight into one of the newest skins in the game.

The dev commented: “The level 100 Havoc skin is the first ever 3-stage evolving Legendary weapon skin. As you get more kills (within the match), its eyes glow and its nostrils emit smoke, etc.”

Ok this is pretty cool from r/apexlegends

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the weapon in the trailer for season one without realizing what they had seen – with some believing it was the previously leaked L-Star rifle. However, after it was cleared up that the gun they saw was the Havoc, Leeeeeee-RSPN returned with a further comment.

The dev added: “Showin’ that sweet VFX green nostril flare!,” in reference to the gun’s new reactive effects being showcased before its release.

Following the release of the Season 1 update on March 19, data miners managed to uncover some new video on what the skin looks like in action, as well. 

The Havoc, an energy rifle, was introduced into the battle royale title on February 20 as the game’s first new weapon.

It looks like it could become a staple of player’s arsenals moving forward – should the level 100 mountain be conquered.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
