Respawn is always adding new content to Apex Legends and finally they have revealed cosmetics and skins that are connected to the upcoming Monster Energy collaboration.
There were plenty of changes in Season 10 of Apex Legends, including the new Legend Seer and changes to the World’s Edge map. With a new Collection Event arriving soon, Respawn has plenty of new content planned.
A new collaboration with ALGS, Monster Energy, has brought some brand-new cosmetics and skins to the battle royale, so let’s get into the details.

The Apex Legends Monster Energy 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.
Luckily, @alphaINTEL has presented the number of cans you will need to gain specific rewards in the Monster Energy x Apex Legends collab:
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.
For those who like to collect exclusive skins and have cosmetics that not many players have, make sure to purchase Monster Energy and redeem as many codes as you can for the best rewards.

Apex Legends Anniversary event: Release date, rewards, more
Apex Legends is nearing its third anniversary, and Respawn usually like to celebrate in style. Here’s everything there is to know.
Respawn love to celebrate the Apex Legends anniversary with an event. The game is coming up to its third birthday and for those interested in the date, here’s when Apex Legends’ anniversary is.
With that being said, players are always hungry for new content, with Season 12 on the way. With how special the Season 8 Anniversary event was for 2021, it’s only right that fans are intrigued about the next one.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event.
When is Apex Legends’ Anniversary?
Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale was released on February 4, 2019, making this date its anniversary every year since its launch. In celebration, players typically get an in-game event to mark the date.
This year, Apex Legends Anniversary will coincide with the launch of Season 12 on February 8, and so far it seems they wont be marking the third anniversary of the game with an event, but rather “Login Rewards.”
What to expect for Apex Legends’ Anniversary event
In the previous Anniversary event, players were blessed with a whole Collection Event and Reward Tracker. This year, players will be getting login rewards for the month of February.
Starting from Season 12’s launch, players will be receiving three consecutive weeks of rewards:
- February 8 – 15: Octane & three Thematic Packs
- February 15 – 22: Wattson & three Thematic Packs
- February 22 – March 1: Valkyrie, three Thematic Packs, & one Legendary Pack
If you already own these Legends, players will still get the Thematic Packs for them, which are essentially Apex Packs that guarantee items for that specific Legend.
As more news is released, we’ll be updating this article so make sure you stay tuned.

Apex Legends is coming to the end of another season, and while players enjoyed a heap of new content in Season 11, including a brand new map, it’s time for even more.
A lot of leaks have been surrounding Season 12, but finally, official information has been released regarding the new content coming, including Mad Maggie, changes to Olympus, a new LTM, and even more.
- Apex Legends Season 12 release date
- Season 12 Legend Mad Maggie
- New LTM “Control”
- Olympus returns with an update
Apex Legends Season 12 release date
Apex Legends Season 11 will end on February 8, 2022, and as updates tend to arrive on Tuesdays around 12 AM PST/ 1 PM EST/ 6 PM BST, this is when we could be seeing Season 12 launch.
The launch trailer for Season 12 will be released on January 27, so perhaps this is when we will get an official release date. When there is official news regarding a release date, we will be updating this piece with the information.
Apex Legends Season 12 Legend Mad Maggie
The new Legend for Season 12 will be Mad Maggie, an old friend of Fuse’s who has been forced to participate in the Apex Games as a punishment for her many crimes across the Outlands after being shot down in a dog fight against the Syndicate.
They fell out over Fuse’s choice to join the Apex Games and for Salvo (Fuse and Maggie’s home planet) to become a world owned by the Syndicate, who are also behind the Apex Games.
It seems Maggie is out for vengeance and her relationship with Fuse is bound to be explosive, making things exciting for fans in terms of lore.
It’s unclear what her abilities are, but from a recently leaked promotional image, it seems she will wield a shield and some sort of whip.
Apex Legends new LTM “Control”
Apex Legends Season 12 will also bring a brand new LTM to the game called “Control.” While there has been a lot of rumors regarding a smaller team-based mode coming to Apex Legends after Arenas, players will finally be getting it in Season 12.
Control will be available for the first three weeks of Season 12 and features two teams of 9 where players will choose their loadout – similarly to how it worked in Season 11’s version of the Holo-day Express LTM.
The two teams will then battle it to hold control points with infinite respawns. It isn’t quite clear what maps will be available on this mode, but again, as more information is released we will be sure to update this piece.
Apex Legends’ Olympus returns with an update
Map updates have been teased ahead of Season 12 but now we have official news that Olympus will be returning with changes.
The information given in the latest EA blog on Season 12 states the following: “A new view from Olympus. Something is different about the floating city…but what?”
This will no doubt generate excitement for what map changes are to come for Olympus in Season 12, especially as the map has been out for the duration of Season 11.
That’s all for Apex Legends Season 12, as more information is released make sure to check back on this article for updates. For now, check out how many people are playing Apex Legends.

Apex Legends devs respond to Season 12 Pathfinder buffs requests
The Apex Legends developers have finally responded to player requests to buff Pathfinder’s abilities in Season 12.
Apex Legends players have been calling for some major buffs to Pathfinder in Season 12, and Respawn Entertainment have finally responded to these requests.
There are a total of 19 different characters to choose from in Apex Legends. All of these Legends have unique abilities that make them ideal choices for a variety of different combat situations.
Now, one of the Apex Legends devs has responded to these requests.
Respawn will not change Pathfinder in Season 12
Apex Legends’ Lead Balance Director John Larson discussed Pathfinder in an interview with Dexerto’s Kijanna Henry. The dev went over why there hasn’t been any major update for the Legend.
After explaining how complicated it is to buff or nerf characters, he stated that Respawn believes Pathfinder currently doesn’t need any improvements. This can be attributed to the Legend’s high pick rate.
One popular player suggestion has been to increase Pathfinder’s utility while he uses a zipline, and Larson dismissed that idea: “Does he have less of an accuracy penalty on ziplines, or can he heal on ziplines? That would just straight up buff him.”
Larson also explained why Pathfinder’s abilities don’t need to match the strength of other characters: “It’s important to evaluate the kit as a whole. I don’t think there should be a world where every legend has an equally enticing passive, tactical, and ultimate.”
Timestamp at 10:59
It seems that Respawn are currently satisfied with Pathfinder’s performance, so we won’t see the Legend go through any major changes anytime soon. However, that doesn’t mean he’ll stay the same forever.

Larson noted that the team is always open to making changes when needed. So, we might see Pathfinder get some upgrades when the game’s meta shifts in a future season. Only time will tell when this will happen exactly.
