Gundam-esque Valkyrie Prestige skin coming to Apex Legends in Neon Network Collection Event

Valkyrie Apex LegendsRespawn Entertainment

The next legend in Apex set to get a prestige skin is in fact Valkyrie, who is skipping a few places ahead of the queue and getting a mythic skin in the Neon Network Collection Event.

Prestige skins in Apex Legends, although controversial when released, are now a regular part of the event cadence. Just like heirlooms, these skins are unlocked during collection events, or for heirloom shards after the event.

So far, we’ve had prestige skins for Bloodhound, Bangalore, and Wraith, with Valkyrie up next. This skin was initially leaked with some loose details, but it’s since been officially announced by Respawn as part of the Neon Network Collection Event.

Here’s what we know so far about the Valkyrie prestige skin, what it will look like, and when it will release.

Valkyrie Prestige Skin in Apex Legends

According to typically reliable Apex Legends leaker ThordanSmash, who cited an ‘insider source’, Valkyrie’s Prestige Skin was set to release as part of a collection event in Season 17. At the time it was leaked, we didn’t have many details about the skin other than it possibly being inspired by Gundam.

Now that the skin’s trailer has been released, that inspiration is plain to see.

This is the second Collection Event during Apex Legends Season 17, with the first containing Horizon’s Heirloom. For those willing to unlock every skin in the collection, they’ll get their hands on Valkyrie’s Prestige Skin: Apex Interceptor.

Prestige Skins all have different ‘levels’ which can be earned through completing challenges with the character. There are three total levels in the Valkyrie skin just like the others that evolve it, with players being able to swap back and forth between each tier of the skin as they unlock them.

Valkyrie’s skin sees her gaining more armor and a full helmet as it evolves, ultimately turning her into a slick, Gundam-esque combatant. She already has an heirloom too, so the most dedicated Valkyrie mains will be able to rock a full set when the event launches on July 25, 2023.

Additionally, the trailer for this event has a small teaser that may be related to the Kill Code trailer that was recently released. We’ll keep you updated as more details come out about Apex Legends Season 18.
