The second installment for Apex Legends’ Arenas Flash event has finally landed, offering some new rewards for players to get their hands on.

After a recent new update for Season 9: Legacy, which fixed Wattson’s fence bug, Valkyrie’s ultimate, and added an abandonment penalty for Arenas, the 3v3 mode gains its second Flash event, which has more rewards than the last.

As predicted by dataminers, the last Arenas Flash event was dropped on May 11 but didn’t feature a reward tracker. This time, the event is back and features even more rewards than the last. Let’s take a look at what players can earn.

What is the Apex Legends Arenas Flash event?

The Arenas Flash event is a limited-time event that lasts one week, featuring Arenas only challenges for players to complete and gain prizes in the reward tracker. The event has three installments, May 11, May 25, and June 8.

As stated by dataminers, the second installment on May 25, which is available now, is the biggest, with more rewards than the other installments.

Unlike the Flash events on May 11 and June 8, the May 25 event has a larger reward tracker with Wattson, Bloodhound, and Eva-8 skins for players to obtain.

On top of this, players can also get two Apex Packs, one of which has a guaranteed Epic rarity item.

By completing the set Arenas challenges that players can view on the lobby screen, players will receive a certain number of points. The points needed to complete the reward tracker are set at 5,000, so make sure you’re playing Arenas throughout the week.

Please note that Arenas Flash is not an heirloom collection event, so don’t expect there to be an abundance of skins and a new heirloom.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings massive change to Battle Pass challenges

Apex Legends Season 14 is bringing a huge quality of life upgrade to Battle Pass challenges that gives players more freedom.

The Apex Legends Battle Pass challenges will be getting a major change in Season 14 that allows players to complete them freely.

Apex Legends Season 14‘s brand-new Battle Pass has been revealed by the devs, showing off a collection of rewards that players will be grinding for.

While players get to grips with Vantage and Kings Canyon map changes, they will be attempting to complete challenges in order to level up their Battle Pass and unlock rewards.

That said, sometimes players attempt challenges for game modes that they don’t want to play, leaving them demotivated to level up their Battle Pass. Luckily, the devs have decided to change the system to alleviate this issue in Season 14.

Starting from August 9, the Apex Legends Battle Pass challenges will now feature a Battle Royale and non-Battle Royale option, so that no matter what game mode players choose they can complete their challenges.

For example, a player could have a Battle Royale challenge that requires the player to deal 500 damage in a single match. However, this challenge will have a non-Battle Royale counterpart that requires the player to get 750 damage in a single match, which could be through Arenas or perhaps an LTM.

Jordan Rapp, the Game Designer for Apex Legends, presented the change on Twitter, showing off some examples and expressing his excitement to have helped bring this change.

The dev states that they hope the change allows all players to “have more fun and flexibility” when completing the Battle Pass in Season 14.
