It’s time to pillage and plunder in Apex Legends with the Raiders Collection Event. The new event brings a familiar, limited-time game mode to the shooter, as well as a boatload of booty in the form of cosmetics. The highlight of which is Wattson’s Heirloom item.
The Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event runs from December 7 to 21. During that time, you’ll be able to take a break from the new map, Storm Point, and dive into the Winter Express Capture the Train game mode. This time around. there’s one difference. You’ll be able to pick your load out before dropping into the train battle.
Raiders Collection Event cosmetics
The latest Collection Event has the typical free and paid cosmetics. The free cosmetics can be earned by completing challenges and earning points towards the prize track. You can earn up to 1,600 points per day,and you need 5,000 points to unlock all the free rewards. So, you’ve got plenty of time. The highlights of the prize track are a skin for Crypto, a skin for the Alternator, and one for the Hemlock.
As for the paid cosmetics, there are loads of very cool looking options available. Valkyrie’s samurai-looking skin, Lifeline’s high-tech ninja outfit, Wattson’s pirate look, and the Blackbeard pirate skin for Revenant are my favorites. If you fork out enough cash to purchase all the Event’s cosmetics, you’ll unlock the brand-new Wattson Heirloom item, an Energy Reader. I’m not entirely sure how you’d melee someone with it. But it certainly looks unique. And it suits Wattson.
As for the Apex Legends Collection Event patch, there is one balance change to Seer. His Focus of Attention detonation has been decreased slightly from 1.6 seconds to 1.4. The Arc Star also received a few changes in this patch. Its base stick damage has been reduced from 30 to 10. Plus, sticking an enemy will apply a slow debuff. The damage multiplier for shields has been increased from x3 to x4. And the slow duration for non-stuck Arc Stars is now based on the distance to the center of the detonation.
There are also a bunch of bug fixes and improvements. You can check out all the details in the complete patch notes.
