Get ready to bring the thunder in Apex Legends Season 2 – Battle Charge. Meet the electrifying Legend Wattson, get your hands on a new and improved Battle Pass, take on unique challenges, and much more when the new season starts on 2nd July .
Shock the system with Wattson
Natalie “Wattson” Paquette is a familiar face in the Apex Games: daughter of the Games’ lead electrical engineer, she devoured every book she could on the subject, and grew into a skilled engineer herself. Eventually, she was commissioned to build the Apex Games’ Modified Containment Ring. Her father tragically died the day it was revealed, but at her lowest moment, a group of competitors invited her to return to the arena with them. They became her new family.
She now fights in the arena she helped build, destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud. Nobody knows the arena better than Wattson, and she’s able to change the game.
Light a fire with the L-Star
The L-STAR energy machine gun – a fan favorite from Titanfall 2 – is dropping into the arena starting in Season 2. This powerful energy weapon hits hard with heftier projectiles than any other machine gun, though sustained fire causes it to overheat. You’ll have to time your shots right to get the most of the L-STAR, but master that rhythm and you can take down a whole squad before the fight even starts to heat up.
Get an improved Battle Pass
Thanks to tons of great feedback from our fans, we’re making the Season 2 Battle Pass bigger and better. Here are just some of the changes you can expect to see when the Battle Pass launches in July:
- Daily and Weekly Challenges
- A reduction in time to Battle Pass level 100
- Three additional Legendary skins added to the rewards track
- Three entirely new content categories replacing badge and stat tracker rewards
- Enough Crafting Metal rewards from the full reward track to craft a Legendary item.
Prepare for more
You didn’t think King’s Canyon would look the same forever, did you? Keep an eye out for even more as we get closer to the launch of Season 2.
