The continued partnership between Respawn and Twitch has resulted in another piece of exclusive Apex Legends content for Prime members to collect.

For the ninth drop in the Apex Twitch Prime drop series, the studio is giving out the Mixtape gun charm for people who have their EA accounts linked to the streaming platform’s services.

Like the Swimming Buddy Pathfinder skin before it, this is available free of charge but it’ll take an active Twitch Prime membership for someone to be eligible to claim the reward.

The process of claiming it can be a bit confusing, but this quick run down should give you everything you need to know for getting the timed-exclusive charm.

The next in line for Apex Legends Twitch Prime rewards is the Mixtape gun charm.

How to get the new Apex Legends Twitch Prime charm

While the schedule of content release from Twitch Prime has included everything from exclusive Legend skins for Caustic, Revenant, and the like, this time there’s going to be something free to spruce up your weapons.

The Mixtape gun charm is the first in its class for a Twitch Prime release, so follow the instructions below to get it.

  1. Go to the Twitch Prime page for Apex Legends
  2. Log into your account that has an active Twitch Prime subscription
  3. Scroll down to the item and click ‘Claim Now’
  4. Once the pop-up window appears, click on ‘Link Game Account’
  5. Authorize the account share, and you’re done!

Once you’ve completed those steps, the next time you load up Apex Legends you should have the item in your collection to equip it to whichever gun you want.

Remember this method for the upcoming Apex Legends rewards that the company has in line. There are about five cards that say “available soon,” so make sure you check back to get more free loot.

Those used to be tied to Legend skins but, as Respawn showed with the new gun charm, the devs could surprise their fans with something different like a weapon cosmetic.

As for this exclusive in-game item, it will be available from now until August 27, so there’s plenty of time to go through the process and add the unique Mixtape to your collection.

Apex Legends Season 8 launch trailer reveals Fuse abilities and destroyed Kings Canyon

Respawn Entertainment have given a first look at the new Legend Fuse and his abilities in action, plus the obliteration of Kings Canyon, in the Apex Legends Season 8 Launch trailer.

Fuse, real name Walter Fitzroy is the eighth post-launch Legend to join the Apex games, bringing the total to 16 – double what the game had at launch.

As his name implies, his abilities are all about explosives, and he’s a blow-it-up-first, ask questions later, type character. Hailing from Salvo – a new planet we’ve only just found out about – he’s also bringing a new weapon with him, the 30-30 repeater.

The launch trailer, released on January 21, gives us our first look at two key parts of the upcoming season: Fuse’s ability kit, and the new-look Kings Canyon.

Season 8 Launch Trailer


Fuse abilities in Apex Legends

Although not completely explained, this trailer gives us a look at Fuse using his abilities, which he’ll have in the Apex games.

His ultimate, which was already teased in-game, sees him drop a mortar-like bomb, which then explodes into flames, damaging anyone nearby.

We can also see him launch grenades from his arm, which will be his tactical ability.

Kings Canyon

Salvo’s unification with the Syndicate was meant to be a joyous occasion, but Fuse’s old friends are certainly not happy about – and decided to crash the party.

This has left Kings Canyon in ruins – ready for a new Season of massive map changes. Respawn have become experts at weaving the game’s lore into actual gameplay, and this is just another example of that.

In the trailer, it appears that Artillery and Slum Lakes have both been destroyed, but we may have to wait until the gameplay trailer to see the full extent of the damage.

Season 8 launches on consoles, PC, and possibly Nintendo Switch, on February 2.
