Pulsefire 2020 has been confirmed as the next League of Legends in-game event, and we’ve got everything you need to know in one place. From the skins on offer, to the rewards you can earn, there’s plenty to grab.
With Galaxies 2020 in the rearview mirror, it’s time to adjust your sights to Pulsefire 2020. The next League of Legends in-game event is just around the corner.
With new skins, including a Prestige one, chromas, missions, and more on their way, you should be prepping for the grind now. We’ve got everything you need to know about the Pulsefire event, so if you want that Lucian Prestige, read on.
Pulsefire 2020 event skins
Four champions are joining the futuristic Pulsefire cosmetic line. Ekko, Fiora, Pantheon, and Lucian are being dragged into the next century with some high-tech weaponry and costumes.
While it’s not much of a jump for champions like Ekko and Lucian, for Fiora and Pantheon, it’s vastly different from their base skins. With holograms galore, traditional swords and spears have been traded in for, presumably, lighter and better versions. Skins equals wins, right?

Lucian is also getting blessed with a Prestige skin in the event. It’s the first special edition cosmetic for the AD carry, and transforms the Pulsefire blues into glimmering golds.
That’s not all for this event though. Three Astronaut skins are also on their way for Bard, Gnar, and Poppy. They join Teemo and Nautilus in the out-of-this-world cosmetic line. However, they won’t be making their appearance until Patch 10.11.

The skins will set you back around 1350 RP, except for the Prestige Lucian, which will cost 100 Prestige points or 2000 Pulsefire 2020 tokens.
Pulsefire 2020 event pass
With every event comes a pass. These passes are usually jam-packed with goodies, from event orbs, to extra missions to complete so you can complete that grind to the Prestige skin.
The Galaxies 2020 pass fell flat with some players however, and Riot has vowed to improve event passes for future events, starting with Pulsefire. While it’ll still cost 1650 RP, there’s going to be more value chucked in.
You’ll get 200 tokens and four orbs right off the bat. You’ll also get access to 20 extra missions, with XP boosts, Prestige points, and Pulsefire paraphernalia on offer. You’ll also get tokens just for playing the game, with the drop rate increasing from the Galaxies event.
For an extra 1000 RP, you can bundle the pass with Pulsefire Lucian, saving you 350 RP if you were planning on picking up the skin anyways.
Pulsefire 2020 event missions
Regardless of whether you buy the pass or not, every player will have access to the Pulsefire event missions. They usually revolve around playing with the champions receiving new skins, and specific tasks on Summoner’s Rift and Howling Abyss.
You’ll have to complete these missions in order, but thankfully, most of them can be brute forced just by playing the game. You can find the full list of Pulsefire 2020 missions, and the rewards on offer, below:

When will the Pulsefire 2020 event start and end?
Pulsefire 2020 will kick off with the release of Patch 10.10. The event goes live on May 14 at 1pm PT, which is May 15 in some parts of the world. It’ll run until June 15, so you’ll have a month to smash out all the missions.
Players will also have an extra two weeks — until June 30 — to spend their tokens. After that though, they’ll disappear from your inventory, so be sure to use them all up before then.
