EA and Respawn have announced that Apex Legends fans will be able to partake in the Gaiden Event, which runs from July 19th to August 2nd, 2022. This event brings a lot of anime-themed content and action with it, and you can see the full breakdown of what’s to come below.


Rack your shotguns and wipe down your scopes because Armed and Dangerous is back, where weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns, and loot overall is much harder to come by. Armed and Dangerous will be available from July 19th to August 2nd with World’s Edge, Olympus, and Storm Point as the map rotation.


Summon your inner hero and play your way through two unique weekly challenge tracks to unlock event-themed cosmetics.

July 19th to July 26th

Rewards include:

  • Fuse’s Down Thunder Epic Skin
  • Bionic Buddy Gun Charm
  • Epic 3030 “Cloudburst” Skin

July 26th to August 2nd

Rewards include:

  • OK Holospray
  • 1 Gaiden Event Pack
  • 1 Apex Pack


Summon your inner hero with 40 adventurous event-limited cosmetics, including new Legendary skins for Revenant, Mirage, Octane and Wattson with complementary skins for the Flatline, Wingman, EVA-8 and Charge Rifle.


During the Gaiden Event we’ll be bringing back the Special Offers tab offering deals on bundles and cosmetics throughout the event.

If you collect all 40 event items, you’ll unlock the newest Prestige skin, Bangalore’s “Apex Commander”! Prestige Skins are Mythic cosmetic Legend skins that each have 3 tiers (3 versions total of the Prestige Skin). Upon unlocking tier 1 of a Prestige Skin, a player will be able to complete challenges to unlock Tier 2 and Tier 3 at no additional cost. Players can continue to complete these challenges, once available, even after the end of the event. Once a Prestige Skin Tier’s challenge is completed a player will unlock that respective tier’s version of the Legend skin which can then be equipped. Players have the ability to equip any unlocked tier of a Prestige Skin once owned.

Gaiden Event Packs are available for a limited time during the Gaiden Event, but the items will be available in the standard Apex Pack pool of items after the event ends.

Gaiden Event Packs guarantee you one non-duplicate Gaiden Event item.

The new event will introduce 40 new cosmetic items around the Gaiden theme.

Gaiden items can be crafted with crafting metals. After two seasons, crafting metal costs of Gaiden Items may be reduced.
