Like every new season, Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy brought players another 110 level Battle Pass for players to grind through. It may seem daunting at first, however, there is a variety of ways players can rank up.

Apart from the new Legend, Valkyrie, and the Bocek Bow, Apex Legends fans were also treated to a new Battle Pass. Like every season, the Battle Pass includes a variety of cosmetic items for players, from banner frames to new skins.

The Apex Legends Legacy Battle Pass includes some new items, like the third-person emotes, which some players may be eager to get their hands on.

The Battle Pass has always been an integral part of every new season for Apex Legends, keeping players occupied with weekly challenges to hopefully reach the Legendary weapon skin at level 100. There are also free rewards for those who can’t and don’t want to purchase that Battle Pass.

Players are then encouraged to go even further than that, as gaining more Battle Pass stars even after reaching level 100 will gain you another version of the final tier legendary weapon skin. With this in mind, let’s take a look at how you can rank up fast in the Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy Battle Pass.

How to get the Apex Legends Legacy Battle Pass

The Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy Battle Pass can be purchased from the lobby menu for 950 Apex Coins, or 2,800 for the Battle Pass Bundle for those who want a 25 tier head start.

You can either purchase the Battle Pass with real money, or you may find you have enough from completing or progressing through a previous season’s Battle Pass, as Apex Coins are among the rewards.

Complete Apex Legends Legacy Battle Pass Challenges

The best way you can progress through the Battle Pass is through completing daily and weekly challenges. Players will now receive 11 weekly and 5 daily challenges to complete. The amount of challenges has increased this season due to the introduction of Arenas, so make sure to play both the battle royale and new 3v3 mode to rank up as fast as possible.

The weekly and daily challenges are designed to help you through the Battle Pass by giving players Battle Pass specific XP known as STARS, which contribute towards a full Battle Pass level.

The challenges will vary from play a certain amount of games, to getting kills with certain Legends or weapons. Completing all if not most of these challenges as they come out will allow you to complete the battle pass even before the last week of challenges.

Playing matches in Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy

Although this one may seem obvious, consistently playing the game will also level up your Battle Pass, not just your account level.

If you’re serious about reaching the end of the Battle Pass, you will need to play consistently throughout the season, whether its Arenas or the classic battle royale.

Playing matches will also complete daily and weekly challenges passively even if you’re not trying to complete them, which is nice if you are someone who prefers to just play rather than focus on challenges.

You can gain the most XP in a match by killing the Champions, placing high in the lobby, and preferably winning a lot of games, as this is how you will receive the most XP. On the other hand, doing things like leaving matches before the full squad has died will hinder your XP and way to reaching Battle Pass tier 110.

Purchasing Battle Pass tiers

For those who can’t wait for new challenges to be released, and don’t want to grind the game out enough to passively complete the Battle Pass, you can also purchase tiers for 150 Apex Coins each.

This option is very efficient, however, will cost you a lot of money to buy all the way up to tier 100, where you will then have to play in order to get to 110.

These are some of the best ways to rank up fast in Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy. For more on Apex Legends, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our article on the new Battle Pass system coming to Apex.

When is cross-progression coming to Apex Legends

Apex Legends is cross platform for Xbox, PC and PlayStation. Find out if your progression will follow you around all the systems here.

when is cross-progression coming to apex legends

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.

Apex Legends cross-progression

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.”

Apex Legends cross-progression

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.

Apex Legends leak claims Revenant will get Heirloom in Season 9

A new leak suggests that Revenant will be the next character to get their own Heirloom in Apex Legends Season 9, not Crypto.

Apex Legends leak claims Revenant will get Heirloom in Season 9

While it was initially believed that Crypto would receive his very own custom Heirloom in Apex Legends Season 9, a new leak suggests that Revenant will be getting one instead.

Heirlooms are some of the rarest cosmetic items in Apex Legends to this day. These are basically unique melee weapons that are suited to specific Legends. Bangalore’s Cold Steel in the Chaos Theory event was the most recent one.

Heirloom for Crypto was also previously leaked, but that has yet to arrive in the game. Now, some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Respawn are planning to give one to Revenant in Season 9.

Revenant in Apex Legends

According to notable Apex Legends data miner ‘GarretLeaks,’ a new LTM that’s arriving on June 29 may also bring Revenant’s Heirloom to the battle royale. The leaker states that there’s a “high chance” of this happening.

A previous leak revealed what Revenant’s Heirloom will look like. It appears to be a scythe that’s compartmentalized and attached by a wire. Once the Legend gives it a shake, it will form the sharp end of the two-handed weapon.

So far, nine of the Legends have their own Heirlooms in the game, and Revenant will be the tenth if these leaks are accurate.

This might be disappointing to Crypto fans that were excited to see his ‘Jikdo’ item arrive. That leak was apparently a “fake”, and Garret stated that there are currently only two Heirlooms in the Apex Legends game files.

Keep in mind that we don’t know for sure if this is the next Heirloom that will be joining the game since Respawn’s next lineup hasn’t been revealed yet. So, it’s worth taking this news with a grain of salt.

If you’re interested in more cosmetics for this Legend, then you can also pick up June’s Revenant Prime Gaming skin. For more Apex Legends news, keep it locked on Charlie Intel, and check out the Legend pick rates in Season 9.

How to check Apex Legends item shop without being in-game

If you’ve ever wanted to check the Apex Legends item shop without actually being on the game, we’ve got a great tip for you.

We’ve found a great way for you to check the Apex Legends item shop without actually being on the game. So let’s get into the details.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale that contains an in-game store for players to purchase various cosmetics. Apart from collection events and special sales like the recent ALGS Animal Kingdom bundle, the Apex Legends item shop will rotate cosmetics and put recolors up in the exclusive section of the store.

If you’ve ever wanted to see what is in this item shop without actually having to go on the game, there’s an easy way for you to do so.

Although we are yet to see a collection event for Season 9: Legacy, we have seen some new cosmetics enter the game through the Arenas Flash event and Battle Pass.

However, for those looking to get a specific skin or recolor, you may constantly be checking the item shop when it refreshes stock to find that exclusive skin you’ve been waiting for.

If this moment comes when you aren’t able to check the store in-game, there is a handy way to do so without having to boot up Apex Legends.

How to check the Apex Legends item shop

The best way to find out what is in-store on the Apex Legends item shop is through a handy website called apexitemstore.

This website will give you a breakdown of the current items in both the “Featured” section and “Exclusive” section of the item shop, as well as how long they will be in the store.

Featured items are those that can be purchased with Apex Coins and are already in the game. However, although they are in the game, the only way players can obtain these items is through crafting them or in Apex Packs.

Crafting these items takes a lot of Crafting Materials that take a long time to get. Further, getting a specific item in a pack leaves it down to luck, meaning you might have to spend a decent amount of money before getting what you want.

Therefore, the store’s featured items give those players a chance to get a specific item that they want on a one-time purchase with Apex Coins, which is a lifesaver for those who really want a certain skin, especially if it is for a recolor.

Exclusive

Exclusive items are on the right side of the store and are generally called “recolors,” as they are different colorways of already present skins in the game. To purchase exclusive items, players must have the original item of the recolor, which they can purchase with Apex Coins.

Not only does this give players a chance to get a specific skin they have wanted with Apex Coins, but it also throws in a recolor they can purchase with Legend Tokens, which is the game’s free currency that is passively obtained just by playing.

The website also allows players to check out every Legend and weapon skin ever released, recolors and all, which is great for those interested in seeing past items that may become available in the future.

That’s how you can check the current item shop contents in Apex Legends without being in-game. For more, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our recent article on how to unlink and link Apex Legends and EA accounts.
