Another Apex Legends edition pack is available, this time for Gibraltar, and will include two exclusive legendary skins, including the “King of the Sea” Gibraltar Skin.

Legend editions for Apex Legends first dropped in 2019, starting with the Lifeline and Bloodhound editions.

These were followed by the Octane edition in early 2020, and then Pathfinder’s edition in May. That was the last time we had a new one release, so we’ve been waiting a while for Gibraltar’s pack to drop.

Gibraltar is of course one of the eight founding Legends in the game, and he also just received his heirloom in Season 7, so it makes sense that he’s up next for his very own special edition.

  • Exclusive “Making Waves” Badge
  • 1,000 Apex Coins

The Gibraltar Edition is $19.99, but EA Play members get a discount.

How much is the Gibraltar Edition?

These editions typically cost $19.99, but EA Play members can get it discounted at $17.99 There are also sales sometimes too. For example, you can currently get the Octane and Pathfinder editions for a reduced price on Origin.

This is pretty good value when compared to the typical cost of Legendary skin on its own, nevermind the 1,000 Apex coins that are also included.

How to get Gibraltar’s King of the Sea skin

  1. Go to the store on PlayStation or Xbox, or Origin/Steam on PC.
  2. Navigate to Apex Legends
  3. In add-ons, you’ll see the Gibraltar Edition, as well as past editions
  4. After purchasing, you will have 1,000 coins and the cosmetics added in-game automatically

Also, Respawn released the Mayhem Pack for Season 8, which includes an exclusive Fuse skin and 600 Apex coins, so you may want to pick that up too.

The Anniversary collection event is ongoing in Apex Legends right now too, which gives you the opportunity to get some great-looking recolors of classic skins, as well as 150 heirloom shards if you complete the collection.

Simple Apex Legends Horizon trick makes Gibraltar & Bangalore ultimates useless

Bunkering down away from a Gibraltar or Bangalore ult in Apex Legends? Why not rise above it? Well, that’s what players are doing now, with this simple Horizon trick making it easy to avoid getting hit by both artillery drops.

Gibraltar and Bangalore’s ultimates in Apex Legends are some of the best in the game. They can lock down areas, raining hell from above and making it almost impossible to fight back through the damage and the stuns.

You can shelter inside, or drop a Gibby bubble of your own, but what if you wanted to fight back? Well, that’s where Horizon comes in for this nifty trick.

If you’re a Horizon main, you’d want this Apex Legends trick under your belt.

Reddit user ‘Jagaleksandr’ showed off the trick, and how it can save your team in a pinch. Just by throwing down your Tactical ability, Gravity Lift, you can rise above the airstrikes and avoid all damage. You won’t even get shell-shocked.

After both Gibraltar and Bangalore’s ults finish, you can then drop back down to the ground. With a cheeky reposition, you can easily catch your enemies off-guard.

There is one drawback against the Horizon ultimate trick though ⁠— you won’t be able to strafe while in the air against Gibraltar. If you do so, you might be caught by a stray rocket.

This can make you a sitting duck in mid-air, but given the chaos thrown down, you should be able to get through scott-free. You might even be able to fire back, using the extra height to your advantage.

The trick might not be the most effective in isolated situations, but in the chaos of a final circle, with multiple squads fighting, this simple trick could be the difference between being crowned champion, or seeing the “Game Over” screen.

Horizon is already one of the best characters in Apex Legends, but this trick definitely separates her from the rest in late-game fights.
