How to level up the Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass, and the Season 2 Battle Pass rewards detailed

As with Season 1, Apex's Season 2 Battle Pass will grant you rewards with every level gained, up to level 100, and likewise as before there are both free rewards that can be earned by anyone playing Apex during the Season 2 period, and a host of rewards exclusive to those who purchase the premium Battle Pass.

Free Season 2 Battle Pass Rewards

The free rewards for Season 2, which can be earned from gaining the right number of Battle Pass levels regardless of whether you buy the premium one or not, total up as:

  • Season 2 stat trackers, one for each Legend.
  • Five Apex Packs.
  • The Wattson Hot Rod Skin.

Season 2 Premium Battle Pass Rewards

There are dozens and dozens of rewards you can earn if you purchase the Premium Battle Pass for Season 2 and level it up. These are all viewable in-game, so we won't list them all here, but note that there's a signficiant improvement on the quality and quantity of rewards compared to Season 1, including emotes for skydiving at the start of a round, music packs, and loading screens, which are all new editions.

How to level up the Season 2 Battle Pass

This season, you don't earn Battle Pass XP from playing regular games. Instead, you need to complete various challenges in-game in order to earn stars. Stars, combined with the regular XP you earn from playing the game, are combined and go towards a threshold (starting at 9,000 and increasing each time you hit it, resetting to 9,000 at the end of each week). Each time you hit the threshold of stars and XP combined, you earn a Battle Pass Level.

As well as earning levels that way, however, you can also unlock levels as direct rewards for certain challenges. See our dedicated Apex Legends Challenges guide for more detail on how that system works, but the basic thing you need to know is this: Complete challenges and play the game to earn XP and Stars; XP and Stars combine to earn you levels of your Battle Pass, and progressing through Battle Pass levels is what gets you those lovely Battle Pass rewards. Simple! Ish.

Apex Legends Season 2 Premium Battle Pass cost and how to get it

The Premium Battle Pass for Apex Legends Season 2 costs 950 Apex Coins, which is a premium-only currency (as in, it requires you to use real-world money to get it).

You can grab the Battle Pass Bundle for 2,800 Apex Coins, which includes approximately 4700 Apex Coins' worth of content, if you'd rather stump up a little more. Both of these are unlocked in-game from the "Battle Pass" menu.

Note that you can also earn Apex Coins by progressing through the Battle Pass levels themselves. The Season 1 Battle Pass, for instance, contained a total of 1,000 Apex Coins in rewards at various tiers (roughly 100 coins per 10 tiers was the rate at which you earned them), and it's similar again for Season 2, meaning you can earn all of the required coins for the next season's Battle Pass just by playing the current one.

Apex Legends Roadmap after Season 2 - what else is coming in 2019?

Developer Respawn has revealed what to expect from the Apex Legends Roadmap for the coming year (thanks Purpletoaster20 on reddit):
