Apex Legends Update 1.000.034 Swims Out for the Sun Squad Event This March 28 ...

Respawn has released Apex Legends Update 1.000.034 on all platforms, including new cosmetic items, a new Limited Time Mode, and more! Take a look at what's new in the official Apex Legends Sun Squad Collcetion event patch notes straight from the studio.

In the Sun Squad Collection Event, it's time to catch and shoot some rays.

Check out Ash's "Strongest Link" Heirloom to see if you can handle the heat in a new limited-time mode Heatwave.

Are you ready to take on the sun? Guns are out in the Sun Squad Collection event that features a brand new limited-time mode that increases the heat on Battle Royale, 24 limited-time cosmetics including Legendary skins for Fuse, Mirage, and more, and Ash's "Strongest Link" Heirloom.

HEATWAVE IS A NEW LIMITED-TIME MODE

HEATWAVE is a new limited-time mode that turns up the heat during the Apex Games. However, you should beware of Heatwaves that happen throughout the match. If you are caught out in the open, only sliding cools you down. Heatshields are now more powerful and provide protection against the elements in the Ring.

Keep an eye on Care Packages. Perhaps there is a simpler way to protect from the sun's rays and look stylish while doing it. But you'll need to get into the habit on March 28th.

COLLECTION EVENT ITEMS FOR THE SUN SQUAD

24 new limited-time cosmetics, including Legendary skins for Ash, Mirage, Fuse, and more!

For the entire duration of the event, all 24 items will be available in exchange for Apex Coins or crafting metals, as well as in Sun Squad Collection Event Apex Packs.

Ash's "Strongest Link" Heirloom will be automatically received if you unlock all of them before the event ends!

REWARD TRACKER

Every day, you can earn up to 1,600 points, and challenges will be updated every day. All of these challenges also work as a pack, allowing you to complete multiple challenges at the same time.
