If you didn’t like how challenges were implmented in the first season of Apex Legends, you’ll be very glad to know that Respawn just overhauled the entire thing, and this time, you won’t even need to watch YouTube videos to complete some of them! In a new post on EA’s official site, Respawn outlined how the Apex Legends Season 2 Challenges will work.
For the Apex Legends Season 2 Challenges, Respawn is dishing out daily and weekly challenges that should help you level up your Battle Pass. For reference: more than half of a player’s Weekly Challenges will grant an entire Battle Pass level as a reward, while the remaining Daily and Weekly Challenges will grant “Stars,” which will be combined with match XP, and will contribute to a repeatable Weekly Challenge. Note that Stars are not XP-specific to Battle Pass, which means that Stars do not impact account level progression.
Here’s how the Daily and Weekly Challenges will be set up in Season 2:
Each day, you will receive three new Daily Challenges chosen randomly from a pool of over two hundred. These challenges range from “Deal 200 Damage in Bunker” to “Play 1 game as Lifeline” and are intended to be achievable in a short play session. Complete your daily challenge and earn 3,000 STARS each.
Your challenge pool will reset every day, so be sure to check back regularly to maximize Battle Pass progress.
Each week, you will receive a set of seven new Weekly Challenges. These challenges are intended to take several play sessions to complete and range from “Get 20 Kills as Gibraltar, Bangalore, or Mirage” to “Loot 100 Epic items.” Four of the Weekly Challenges are worth 6,000 STARS each (24,000 STARS total) and three of the Weekly Challenges grant an entire Battle Pass level each upon completion.
Starting the season late? No problem – you’ll get access to all previous Weekly Challenges at one. So, if you start in Week 3, you’ll get access to Week 1, 2, and 3 challenges immediately (21 in total).
Weekly Resetting Challenges
Each week, you’ll have an additional set of three special resetting Weekly Challenges. These are the same every week and refresh even if you haven’t completed them. Keep a careful eye on these to make maximum Battle Pass progress.
Complete five Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
Complete 10 Daily Challenges – Rewards one Battle Pass level
Earn 9,000 STARS and/or match XP – Rewards one Battle Pass level
This quest may be repeated an unlimited number of times each week.
Each completion increases the STARS and/or match XP required for the next by 9,000, up to a maximum of 54,000. You need 9,000 for the first level, 18,000 for the second level, etc. This challenge resets to 9,000 each week.
