Gibraltar will finally be getting an exclusive Twitch Prime skin in Apex Legends Season 5, according to Respawn’s updated rewards page ⁠— here’s how to get your hands on the latest limited-edition Twitch skin in June!

Apex Legends publishers EA have been releasing rare vintage skins for each of their battle royale Legends through Twitch Prime rewards, and now it looks like the loveable Kiwi warrior Gibraltar has the privilege of being up next.

The last two reward skins ⁠— Loba in May and Wraith in April ⁠— have been hit or miss. Wraith’s ‘Forgotten in the Void’ skin was basically a splotch-marked recolor, while Season 5 debutant Loba shone with her stylish ‘Game Master’ skin.

This time around, it looks like Gibraltar fans should be pretty happy; the Shield Fortress is set to get a pretty great-looking cosmetic upgrade once the ‘Tribal Instinct’ drops on June 16.

We’ve already had a pretty good look at the June Twitch skin too, thanks to leaks from Apex dataminer Biast12. The new-release Prime cosmetic was revealed by the code dipper earlier this month, alongside a Bloodhound skin reveal.

The main feature of Gibraltar’s Twitch skin is the sharp purple features cut across his armor and iconic patchwork vest. On top of that, the Kiwi Legend has had some robotic upgrades on his face, giving him a steely new look.

How to claim Tribal Instinct Gibraltar skin for free

First, you must have an active Twitch Prime subscription. And if you don’t, you can find out how to get a free trial in the section below. Once you do have Prime, here is how you can get this outfit into your in-game closet:

  • Visit Twitch Prime’s Apex Legends page
  • Log in using your Twitch credentials
  • Click “Claim Now” above Tribal Instinct Gibraltar
  • When prompted, link your EA account to your Twitch account
  • Wait for your gear. Once the accounts have been linked on their end, your item will join the in-game inventory on your end
Gibraltar's Tribal Instinct skin, is available for free to Twitch Prime and Amazon Prime subscribers.

How to get Twitch Prime for free

As aforementioned, if you have Amazon Prime then you should already have Twitch Prime. But if you don’t have either, then you can simply sign up for a free 30-day trial. To do so, you can utilize the “Start your free trial” button on the Apex Legends Twitch Prime page, which we’ve listed above.

Just remember to cancel your subscription before reaching 30 days of use, unless you’re enjoying the service and willing to pay a little for the game’s next upcoming skin on Twitch Prime — which should release around July 15.

For the next few days, you could get your hands on two Apex Legends Twitch Prime skins for the price of one.

Jump on this deal quickly too! If you sign up for Twitch Prime, or head to the rewards page on or before June 18, you can scoop up Loba’s Game Master skin as well. It’s one of the only times you can get two free skins at once.

Once Loba has rotated out of the store, Gibraltar will be by himself on the rewards page for a while. Apex Legends leaks have confirmed that Bloodhound will be the next Legend to get a limited-edition Twitch Prime release in July.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
