The Sun Squad Collection Event in Apex Legends has arrived to make the next few weeks that bit brighter. This event brings in, as per usual, a ton of rewards and cosmetic items to get your hands on. However, it also brings in a brand new limited-time mode for you to sink your teeth into where you need to avoid heatwaves. If that wasn't enough for you, this event also introduces the heirloom for Ash.

This limited-time event in Apex Legends is offering multiple colourful rewards and cosmetics for you to customise your chosen legend or favourite weapon.

Without further ado, we're going to explain all of the challenges and rewards for this event, as well as the Sun Squad Collection event end date.
