How to unlock Fade in Apex Legends Mobile

Players can unlock Fade by using ‘Fade Pieces,’ granted in allotments of two as part of the Prime Time battle pass. When you reach Level 25, you’ll have accrued enough tokens to add him to your squad.

The battle pass runs from now until June 15, so if you’re looking to get Fade for free, be sure to play enough games between now and then.

What are Fade chips?

If you’ve been scrolling through the Legends Gallery and checking out all of the sights, you may have noticed Fade’s ‘Unleashed Punishment’ limited-time event. For every stage completed, you’ll earn Fade Chips.

These do not contribute towards unlocking Fade. Instead, you can unlock different chapters of Fade’s story, as well as a slew of different rewards (including the Rare ‘Unwavering Focus’ skin).
