Apex Legends Season 6: Boosted comes with a Battle Pass filled with new weapon and Legend skins, charms, skydive emotes, holo-sprays, and plenty more for players to unlock.

It’s once again time for Apex Legends players to dive into a new Battle Pass for Season 6, and after weeks of anticipation and rumors, we finally know what all the rewards available will be.

Holo-sprays are a new cosmetic added for the latest season, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg for what’s all included. Make sure to also check out what’s coming in Apex Legends Season 6 with the full Boosted update patch notes.

Just like in previous seasons, there will be free rewards for players to collect regardless if they’re planning to purchase and unlock the full Battle Pass or not.

As a bit of motivation to start the grind for unlocking Rampart, players will get her Cascade skin as well as five Apex Packs, along with Season 6 win for all the legends.

Respawn devs are once again going with a 110-tier battle pass for players who are ready to put in the time and really grind it out. Players who do pick up the pass will immediately unlock the Legendary Rollcage Sentinel skin and three new Rare Legends skins.

If you manage to work your way through the remaining 100 levels you can earn the rest of the rewards including Rare and Legendary items like the Built for Speed Pathfinder, Road Warrior Bloodhound, and the reactive Hypersonic G7 skin.

How much is the Season 5 Battle Pass?

The Battle Pass will set players back 950 Apex Coins (AC), or an upgrade to the Battle Pass Bundle for 2800 AC to skip through the first 25 tiers for a head start at the rewards.

Respawn Entertainment
Apex Legends players have two options to buy into the Season 6 Battle Pass.

In real-world terms that translates to about $10 USD for the regular Battle Pass and double that to $20 for the head-start bundle.

There’s a dropship full of new content to unlock in Apex Legends Season 6, and players should have plenty of reasons to grind all the way to level 110 to collect every piece in the Battle Pass.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Pathfinder mains have been begging for a change to his grapple cooldown.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
