The highly anticipated release of Apex Legends Season 2 on July 2 also means players are getting a fresh Battle Pass to grind through while earning increasingly awesome rewards along the way.

Respawn Entertainment’s developers have kicked off the next era of their battle royale with Battle Charge, which is bringing loads of content to sift through like a new legend Wattson, weapons, and more.

A lot of people in the Apex community, however, will be happy to hear that this season’s Battle Pass is going to feel more rewarding, as leveling up will actually feel like progression instead of an endless grind.

This season’s Battle Pass rewards are going to have a great mix of typical weapon skins, icons and more, but Respawn is also including some new additions that will definitely add more customization throughout the game with new loading screens and skydive emotes.

It seems like the Battle Pass in Battle Charge is going to be more diverse in its offerings as the devs turn fan feedback into great new items to shape their Apex experience.

Even if someone is still thinking about buying into the Season 2 Battle Pass, they’ll still be able to collect free rewards.

But those who put down 950 Apex Coins to buy into the Battle Pass or 2800 Apex Coins for the Battle Pass Bundle will have a ton more items to reap in their playthrough.

There’s a massive amount of items to collect throughout the 100 levels in the Season 2 Battle pass, and players will be happy to know that Respawn is going to make it much easier this time to navigate through it with new Challenges.

Check them out below:

Apex Legends Weekly and Daily Challenges

The devs are incorporating Daily as well as Weekly Challenges that’ll give players who complete them an express path to grinding levels.

“More than half of your Weekly Challenges will grant an entire Battle Pass level as a reward,” Lead Product Manager Lee Horn said. “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. ”

The dev made it a point to highlight that the new STARS are “XP specific to Battle Pass,” and they will not impact Account Level progression.

Respawn EntertainmentChallenges will help along with completing the Season 2 Battle Pass.

While Daily Challenges reset quickly, Weekly Challenges will let players who bought into the Battle Pass late complete previous week’s challenges to get the most XP they can.

Then there will be a separate Weekly Resetting Challenges that will refresh weekly even if a player hasn’t completed them.

Apex Legends Season 2 is going to give players tons of ways to level up and earn rewards in a much better capacity than they did in the last season.

Apex Legends stand by ban after LuLuLuvely reports “innocent” player

Respawn Entertainment have said they stand by a ban ruling that caused controversy in the Apex Legends community, after NRG streamer ‘LuLuLuvely’ reported a player who protested their innocence on Reddit.

After a hacker mowed down a team of streamers including Lulu, the NRG content creator immediately filed a report to Respawn’s security team member Conor ‘Hideouts’ Ford to sort the situation.

According to LuLuLuvely, her claim included a clip that clearly shows the enemy Gibraltar blatantly hacking. However, the person playing Bloodhound alongside Gibby was also ousted.

The Bloodhound, who initially disputed the decision under their Reddit account ‘KongoBoom,’ slammed Respawn and Hideouts for how the process was carried out and reaffirmed their innocence. Their post was titled “Killing streamers got me banned.”

The Bloodhound player in question claimed innocence, but Respawn’s investigation reaffirmed their ban.

“I’m season 6 / 3 predator with more than 30,000 kills you said I was cheating and in the video everything’s clear. The streamer gave my name mistakenly to the developer, in your email you said I was cheating without giving any proof,” they said.

This quickly set off the community. Accusations of a compromised system, favoritism to particular streamers, or lack of proper handling for bans were all brought up.

LuLu apologized to the player on Twitter, and said she would pass the thread along to get it attention. But, there was still anger about the supposed favoritism to address concerns of streamers, before regular players.

But after hours of community in-fighting and apparent “borderline death threats” toward LuLu, Respawn said they were standing by the decision.

“Regarding today’s Reddit thread from a banned Bloodhound (BH) player,” the studio wrote. “BH appeared to have multiple other banned accounts, BH has a history of attempting to evade bans, BH was partied with the cheating Gibraltar. We stand by the ban.”

Initially, KongoBoom expressed their frustration at the sequence of events. While the NRG streamer indicated that she had no intention of the Bloodhound being banned when making the report, the security team at Respawn have decided there was enough evidence to merit the verdict.

Following Respawn’s statement, LuLuLuvely said “Shame on those who sent borderline death threats to me because of a Reddit post from the guy claiming he was innocent.”

It should be noted that anyone can access the ‘Cheater Report’ Discord channel that’s handled by Hideouts, where people can directly submit clips and evidence of a hacker.

Uproar on this topic has devolved to speculation and accusations outside of Apex Legends and Respawn entirely, but the developers have now concluded this chapter of their long-standing battle against cheaters.
