Apex Legends has cross-platform play available and is now on pretty much every platform, with a Mobile version soon to be released publicly. Now there is one thing on players’ minds – Apex Legends cross-progression.
Since the original launch of Apex Legends in February 2019, the game has made many strides towards catching up with competitors Fortnite and Call of Duty Warzone. First, it began with its cosmetic store & seasonal battle pass system, capitalizing on its free-to-play status with microtransactions for players.
Next up, it launched its cross-play system on October 6, 2020 – uniting players across consoles and PC. The crossplay system is different from competitors since PC players will only still be placed against other PC players. However, console players can still queue with PC friends, but they will, in turn, be exclusively placed against PC players.
Forwarding to the present, players are merging across platforms. Many console players are making the jump to the PC platform due to the recent performance jump of the RTX 3000 graphics cards, and some Xbox players are jumping to PlayStation and vice versa.
When is cross-progression coming to Apex Legends?
So for players jumping across platforms, will your progression follow you? The short answer is no. Currently, there is no way to have your Apex Legends rank and skins follow you to another platform. The only exception is changing between the Origin launcher to Steam on PC, where you will have your data transfer over.
There is good news for players who are still waiting for cross-progression to come to Apex Legends. It still appears to be on the developer’s to-do list, with Respawn’s Game Director Chad Grenier commenting on the subject in a Reddit post.
“It’s something we are very passionate about, and we’re looking at our options available. Much harder post-launch since users may have multiple accounts to merge or use. Easier with Steam because it’s at launch. We’ll give an update when we have something to talk about.”
Based on Grenier’s comment, it appears that Cross Progression has a chance to come in the future, but it is currently a difficult task for the team due to users who have multiple accounts across platforms.
For those cases, it looks like Respawn might offer an account merge option of some type, which may be tricky for them to implement back end.
Since these comments, there has been a further update on the situation by Chad Grenier, who stated in another Reddit AMA that “it’s still a ways off.”
Hopefully, the devs can figure out how to implement cross-progression into Apex Legends. This would make life much easier for those who wish to change the platform without sacrificing their account data.

Seer’s abilities discussed at EA Play for Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 will feature a brand new Legend called “Seer,” who may even give Bloodhound a run for his money.
Apex Legends revealed further details on Season 10: Emergence at EA Play recently, giving players an insight into how the new Legend Seer will operate.
Season 9: Legacy has been a great success for Respawn, introducing a brand new way to play the battle royale with Arenas and expanding the roster with arguably the most balanced Legend they have introduced since the launch of Seasons, Valkyrie.
As well as enjoying the current event, Thrillseekers, which saw a new Arena’s map enter their game, players have also been getting their first details on Season 10: Emergence, especially the new Legend, Seer.
On July 22, EA held their annual showcase event, EA Play Live. As well as a variety of their games being showcased, such as Battlefield and Fifa, Apex Legends used this event to reveal the first official Apex Legends Season 10 trailer.
Although this wasn’t a gameplay trailer, it still provided a load of hints and details concerning Apex Legends’ new character Seer, including how his abilities will work.
As well as this, after the trailer had finished, one of Respawn’s developers provided even more information on Seer, where fans were given an explanation of his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.
Apex Legends Seer abilities
Much like Bloodhound, Seer is a Recon Legend who will be mainly focused on gaining intel on enemies with a stealthy playstyle. Seer’s kit is all about tracking the opposition, but it seems the abilities are much more pinpoint than Bloodhound’s scan.
Apex Legends Seer: Passive ability
Seer will gain access to a heartbeat sensor when aiming down sights and be able to track nearby enemies. Although there is currently no representation of this in-game, perhaps players can expect something similar to Call of Duty’s famous Heartbeat Sensor tactical equipment.
After sensing an enemy’s heartbeat, Seers tactical ability will allow him to send out his Moth Drones to track them down and reveal their position.
Finally, Seer’s Ultimate ability will send out a heap of drones that will combine to create a sphere. Seer will be able to sense and track anyone who is moving fast within this sphere, creating an interesting gameplay mechanic, which may cause teams to alter their movements in order to stay undetected.
Although we don’t currently have any official gameplay of these abilities, the reveal trailer and descriptions of the abilities do a great job at giving players an idea of how Seer will work in-game.
Make sure to check back on this page as more information is released regarding Seer and Season 10, as it seems on July 25, we will be getting our first gameplay trailer.

The Jumpmaster gun charm became available for free in the EA Play Live event and here’s how you can get it in Apex Legends.
Apex Legends players were treated to plenty of new reveals at EA Play Live 2021, and one of the new additions is the Jumpmaster gun charm. Here’s how you can get it for free.
The EA Play Live 2021 gave fans an exciting first look at the upcoming content for various titles like Battlefield 2042 and FIFA 22. Apex Legends fans were treated to the Season 10 launch trailer and more.
One of the new reveals from Respawn was the Jumpmaster gun charm. As the name implies, this item will show the “You are Jumpmaster” pop-up that you’ll often see at the start of matches.
Here’s how you can get it for completely free.
How to get the free Apex Legends Jumpmaster gun charm
The Jumpmaster gun charm was given as a free reward to Apex Legends players who tuned into the EA Play Live presentation. If you caught the show, then the item will already be added to your account.
If you weren’t able to catch the conference, then don’t worry. After fixing some technical issues, Respawn shipped an update that will grant the weapon charm to anyone that has their EA account linked with Twitch.
How to link your EA account with Twitch
First thing’s first, you’ll need to make sure that your Gamertag or PSN ID is linked to your EA account. You’ll need to have that before you can link it to Twitch and get the Jumpmaster gun charm.
- Go to Twitch and select sign in/create an account
- Input your EA account info on the “Connect with Twitch” screen and click “Next”
- Enter your security code and click “Log In”
- Click “Yes, link them” to link both accounts.
Once that’s done, you’ll get a notification letting you know that both accounts have been successfully linked. You’ll now be able to get your hands on the Jumpmaster gun charm in Apex Legends.
We don’t know for sure how long this charm will be available to redeem, but you can check for it the next time you log back in. There were also various other things for Apex players to get excited about in the event.
The game director gave us some more details about the new Season 10 Legend Seer. They talked about the character’s abilities, which include a heartbeat sensor that you can use while aiming down sights.

Monster Energy collab skins & cosmetics leaked for Apex Legends
The Monster Energy collab will bring some new cosmetics and skins to Apex Legends, and they’ve now been leaked.
Respawn is always adding new content to Apex Legends, and some new leaks have revealed cosmetics and skins that are connected to the upcoming Monster Energy collaboration.
A new collaboration with ALGS, Monster Energy will bring some brand-new cosmetics and skins to the battle royale. Now, some new leaks have revealed the additions that will be in the collab.
The collaboration will take place from August 1 to December 31, 2021. During this time, you’ll be able to purchase select cans of Monster Energy that carry promotional codes which can be redeemed in September.
Each code will grant you access to one of the following cosmetics:
- Octane skin: Abstract Splash
- Wraith skin: Energy Transfer
- Havoc skin: Electric Momentum
- Volt skin: Vapour Trail
- Fuse Banner: Aces High
- Wattson Banner: High Voltage
- Octane Banner: The Formula
- Holo-spray: Charged Up
- Holo-spray: Energy
- Holo-spray: Free your speed
With Wraith, Octane, and two energy weapons getting unique new skins, there are quite a few neat items for you to collect. However, the bad news is that these are only of the ‘Rare’ variety.
In addition to these cosmetics, a few players also discovered High Energy badges after the 9.1 update. These will reportedly unlock higher-tiers depending on the number of codes that you redeem.
These will level up in tiers as you redeem more codes. While there aren’t any legendary or epic skins in this collab, you’ll still have some new activities to try out until Season 10 goes live.
We currently don’t know what exactly you’ll have to do in order to unlock each of these cosmetics, but we’ll be sure to update this article with that information once it becomes available.
Also, be sure to check out our article on how to watch EA Play Live 2021 for more Season 10 news, and stay tuned for future news and guides.
