There are three main types of events in Apex Legends: season launches, Themed Events, and Collection Events.[1] Minor events also exist.

Season Launches[]

Main article: Season

These are to coincide with the launch of a new season and will include a new Legend, a major map update, new loot items (weapons, ordnances, etc.), and potentially new features. These events also include significant balance changes.

Collection Events[]

These events come with a limited-time mode, event challenges that let players earn cosmetics, and a "collection" of 24 event limited cosmetics available via Event Apex Pack Icon.png Event-specific Apex Packs or direct purchase. They may also include a small map change or town takeover; a Story from the Outlands is sometimes released with town takeovers. Collection Events offer far more cosmetics than Themed Events and feature Heirlooms, which can be obtained by completing the collection.

Minor Events[]

Minor events may include a sale in which limited-time cosmetics are offered in the Store, and/or a limited time game mode(s) (LTM). Unlike major events, they do not have trailers, they generally do not have Prize Tracks or challenges, and they are not listed as major events in the game's files.

Notes[]

  1. This event actually began on the 8th, but was suddenly postponed to the 10th after DUMMIEs Big Day was removed due to a bug that caused the entire server to crash if someone AFK’ed on character select. It was replaced with Kings Canyon After Dark on September 10th, with DUMMIEs Big Day eventually returning on September 22nd.
