Apex Legends' Legendary Hunt event is a new, fully-fledged in-game event, and is the first of its kind for Respawn's battle royale shooter. It brings with it a set of Legendary Hunt challenges and rewards for those who play while it's active, as well as some other general bonuses, too.
Here, we'll detail all of the challenges and Legendary Hunt rewards involved, as well as highlight the Legendary Hunt end time and end date in case you were wondering, and anything else worth bearing in mind.

Legendary Hunt challenges and rewards list
The Legendary Hunt Challenges are now available, and they're very low-key - although there are at least some good rewards to be had for completing them!
- Get 1 Top 5 in any game - Legendary Hunt Banner Badge (Epic)
- Win 2 games - Tamed Beast Triple Take Skin (Legendary)
- Get 1 Top 5 in Apex Elite queue - The Wolfpack G7 Scout Skin (Rare)
- Unlock Premium Battle Pass Level 1 - Honored Prey R-301 Skin (Legendary)
- Unlock Premium Battle Pass Level 15 - Night Terror Wraith Skin (Legendary)
- Finish in the Top 5 five times in any queue (consecutive or nonconsecutive) - Master of the Hunt Bloodhound Skin (Epic)
Note that the two Legend skins - Night Terror Wraith and Master of the Hunt Bloodhound - aren't actually listed in the in-game set of challenges but are on the official Apex Legends site.
The rest are all tracked fairly obviously in-game, on the main home page. The only thing you might have questions about is the Apex Elite queue - to access that, you simply have to place in the top 5 of any game. That will put you in the Apex Elite queue for your next game. Get in the top 5 during that, and you'll stay in the Elite queue, place lower than top 5 and you'll drop back out again. Simple enough!
Here's a quick gallery showing the rewards - that image above is the Bloodhound skin, and here's a look at the Wraith one.
