How much does the North Star battle pass cost?

Like every other Siege battle pass, there’s two tiers for the North Star one. You can go with either the free track or the premium track.

The free track is exactly as it’s described ⁠— totally free. However, you only get access to a limited number of rewards, including a handful of Alpha packs, headgears, uniforms, weapon skins, and charms.

The Premium track will set you back 1200 R6 Credits, but comes with plenty of benefits. If you buy the Premium track, you’ll get early access to Thunderbird, and all of the goodies that come with the battle pass.

This includes skins for Valkyrie, Maestro, Frost, IQ, Ela, Thermite, Jackal, Thunderbird, Buck, Iana, Flores, Tachanka, Oryx, Kapkan, Bandit, Thatcher, Nomad, and Nokk. There’s also bonus R6 Credits, packs, and more to grab too.

How many tiers are in the North Star battle pass?

Well, unlike previous battle passes, the thing with the North Star one is that there’s an infinite number of tiers. Yes, the progression won’t stop when you hit Level 100.

While the base rewards do end up finishing at Tier 100, you can unlock Alpha packs for every five tiers you complete beyond that. That means you’ll still be rewarded at Tier 105, 110, 115, 120, and beyond.

North Star battle pass challenges

As always, there’ll be a set of personal and community missions for players to complete to help grind the North Star battle pass. These missions refresh every two weeks, so be sure to check back for the latest ones!
