The Apex Legends community have been grinding for more rewards since Season 1 launched in mid March, but players who’ve maxed out the Battle Pass are finding it harder return to King’s Canyon after reaching the endgame.

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale was an instant hit with the gaming community as it quickly eclipsed 50 million players upon release. But the lack of content or communication since the game’s meteoric rise has left a lot of dedicated players with little incentive to keep the grind going.

In a Reddit post, user ‘daddy_BFT’ noticed there wasn’t much to look forward to in Apex Legends after putting in over 200 hours and reaching level 278. With a completely filled Battle Pass and a “very slim” Apex Store, they got to thinking what Respawn could do to fix the problem.

Respawn EntertainmentPeople in the Apex Legends community might like to see rewards that include some extra crafting materials every now and then.

Incentives after hitting level 100

Even though daddy_BFT said there were still in-game rewards to grind for like completing character badges or the like, they thought it’s high time for Respawn to give players more worthwhile rewards after completing the Battle Pass.

“I feel as though Respawn should implement a reward system that would grant you like 250 crafting metals for every win,” daddy_BFT said. “And/or at least 50-100 crafting metals for every other 2-3 level ups after 100 so it gives players more of an incentive to play…”

Though he said the numbers were just an example which would definitely be lower should the idea be implemented, it would definitely give people who maxed out the Battle Pass a reason to keep dropping in King’s Canyon.

Respawn EntertainmentReaching level 100 is a huge and exciting milestone, until players realize the game’s rewards stall out after maxing out the Battle Pass.

Shouldn’t the game be its own reward?

The Redditor’s post quickly got a lot of traction from people who remembered the days where games used to be their own reward without the need for DLC or cosmetics fueling their reason to play.

While there were tons of people who agreed, others thought that the free-to-play model was based off having rewards or cosmetics to strive for.

“… This game is fueled by cosmetic sales and unfortunately Respawn’s in game store and character skin designs are severely lackluster,” Redditor ‘Troublemite’ said. “People want to spend money on this game, but (a.) don’t feel like what they’re being given is worth their money, and (b.) aren’t getting enough opportunities to buy a design they do want because it takes a full week for an in game store slot to rotate out.”

Respawn EntertainmentSome of the community think its time to see a healthier batch of rewards post level 100.

Regardless on one’s position, that still leaves some players to feel that there isn’t much to look forward to after hitting level 100 in the Battle Pass, which Respawn might take a closer look at how to alleviate the concern in the future.

The Apex Legends Season 8 official gameplay trailer has revealed a handful of new Legend and Weapon skins included in the battle pass and beyond.

Season 8 is on the horizon and players are gearing up for all the new content Respawn has in store for them. With an overhaul to Kings Canyon and a brand new Legend being added to the roster, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Of course, new content is all well and good but what’s the point if you can’t look good while taking out your enemies. Well, as always, Respawn has revealed a range of new cosmetics set to arrive in the new season.

Apex’s Season 8 gameplay trailer, released on January 26, gives us a look at the brand new cosmetics we can expect to pick up at the start of February.

Lifeline mains have been treated to a new Legendary skin with a blue and red-style coloration.

Bangalore – Radical Action (Legendary)

Season 8 is going to bring Bangalore an incredible Legendary skin with a radical-style theme. This is definitely going to be a must-have for any Bangalore mains at the beginning of February.

Loba – Green and gold skin

The design of this skin suggests it will be Epic rarity and offers Loba players a green and gold coloration.

Here’s how Loba’s new skin shapes up in Season 8.

Season 8 weapon skins

30-30 Repeater skin

Season 8’s new weapon is arriving with a bang with a stylish blue and golden weapon skin. If you’re a fan of the Repeater’s gunplay when it releases, this is a must-buy skin.

We expect this will be a Legendary skin.

Flatline skin

The Flatline will be receiving a new weapon skin for Season 8 and it’s fair to say it makes the weapon look incredibly deadly. The black spikes paired with the red coloration makes for an amazing skin design.

Longbow DMR skin (Legendary)

With reactive red effects radiating from this skin when the gun is shot, it’s obvious this is going to be a fan-favorite for players who are experienced with the DMR. You’ll have to rank up the battle pass to the very top for this one though.

Longbow Season 8 skin

Knowing Respawn, there’s bound to be a bunch more cosmetics revealed to players at the release of Season 8 on February 2. Hopefully, you’ve saved up some crafting metals as these new skins are not to be missed out on.

If any new cosmetics are revealed before the release of Season 8, we’ll update this article with all the latest.
