Unlike Apex Legends Season 2’s Iron Crown event, Season 3’s upcoming Fight or Fright event will, from the start, allow you to just buy any of its limited-time items. If you’re planning on unlocking them all, it’s cheaper to earn them via the random lottery of Apex Packs, though.
Fight or Fright adds 33 items to Apex Legends, including a new heirloom for Lifeline. Eight of the items can only be earned through completing challenges–these include a new music pack, three badges, a rare weapon skin, an epic Octane skin, and two legendary weapon skins. The remaining 25 are the items you can buy. 12 are an assortment of epic items, 12 are an assortment of legendary items, and the final item is the Lifeline heirloom; which can be unlocked via several different methods.
Of the 24 items you can buy, you can either earn them through direct purchase, crafting, or Apex Packs. The first two methods are ideal if you’re looking to only unlock a few items, while the third method is the most cost-effective for unlocking all 24. We’ve included a cost breakdown below.
- Legendaries – 1,800 Apex Coins
- Epics – 1,000 Apex Coins
- Legendaries – 2,400 Crafting Metals
- Epics – 800 Crafting Metals
Event Apex Packs
New items aren’t all that’s coming in Fight or Fright. For one, Kings Canyon is returning, but with a spooky, nighttime makeover in a limited-time mode called Shadowfall. In Shadowfall, you solo drop into Kings Canyon alongside 34 other people. If killed in Shadowfall, your loot box will spawn killer spiders and you’ll rise from the dead as a zombie-like creature that can run faster, climb higher, and punch harder. In this zombie state, you have unlimited respawns.
Your endgame goal is dependent on whether you’re still alive or a part of the walking dead. When there are only 10 living characters left, the survivors must work together to combat the horde of 25 trying to kill them. The 10 living Legends win if they can make it to an evac ship while the 25 zombies win if they prevent the survivors from escaping.
Fight or Fright begins October 15 and continues through to November 5.
