The Champions Event officially launches on October 18 in North America, with many hot new features to explore. In addition to the arrival of Legend Ash, the Champion Event will also include a brand new ranked split, new events, a new Battle Pass, and updates to core systems.

Fans may already be familiar with Ash, but for those new to the world of Apex she is a simulacrum made from the woman who once was Dr. Ashleigh Reid. Ash detects death wherever she goes, spearing enemies with electric snares that lock them in place, tearing through space to take more lives. She joins the Games to prove she has transcended all humanity and comes with unique Legend Perks…

In Apex Legends Mobile, Ash has three key abilities including:
• Passive: Marked For Death - Ash's map shows the location of recent deathboxes and marks surviving attackers.
• Tactical: Arc Snare - Throw a spinning snare that damages and tethers the first enemy that gets too close.
• Ultimate: Phase Breach - Tear open a one-way portal to a targeted location.

Crypto also features a set of unique Legend Perks, which include:
• Spoils of War - Death box icons appear on the map and as the color of the highest tier loot inside.
• Enhanced Hunting - After 3 death box extractions, your Data Knife reveals more information. After 6, periodically see the killer's team on your map.
• Red-Handed Reveal - The first time an enemy uses a scanned death box, their location will be pinged.
• Instigator’s Precision - You can adjust the throw trajectory of Arc Snare, but the throw speed is reduced.
• Enduring Trap - Arc Snare persists after being thrown but can be destroyed.
• Shadow Step - Phase Breach can be reactivated within 7 seconds of its first use, but the ability's distance is halved.
• Battle Adaptation - Using your Finisher adds 100 points to your EVO Shield.
• Deadly Momentum - Using your Finisher reduces your Ultimate's cooldown by 30%.
• Mag Subscription - Using your Finisher refills the ammo of your active weapon and increases reloading speed for 8s.

The Apex Legends Mobile New Champion Event will also include the Mobile-first upgradeable melee weapon for Fade, Constellation. The base weapon can be unlocked by playing select missions to earn Signature Merits or by buying Signature Tributes during special events. Stay on the lookout for these opportunities! In addition, you can customize the Constellation with visual effects, textures, and more!

With the release of Champions, Apex Legends Mobile is bringing new LTMs with some new spooky additions.
• Second Shot Blitz: A new limited Battle Royale mode that will be active during the season. While Second Shot Blitz is active, everyone will gain the chance to respawn automatically.
• Halloween Event: Our Spooky October Halloween event is coming! Be on the lookout for spooky additions to the Kings Canyon and World’s Edge maps as well as frighteningly cool cosmetic rewards for your favorite legends and weapons!
• Faction Missions: Pledge your allegiance to one of the big three factions vying for power in the Apex Games. Completing missions on behalf of these factions will provide seasonal currency for you to redeem in the seasonal shop!

Additionally, World’s Edge and Kings Canyon will now actively rotate for Normal and Ranked Battle Royale, as well as the introduction to Coliseum. Coliseum can only be accessed through zipline or skydive above the Shattered forest. In the Coliseum you can initiate a duel, notifying the whole lobby that you are accepting all challengers. The more kills you accrue while in the Coliseum, the better the loot! Moreover TDM and Gun Game will have map rotations of Thermal Station, Artillery, and Pythas Block 0.

Lastly, The Champions Battle Pass is coming with some amazing cosmetics! Unlock this battle pass to show your enemies your warrior spirit inside and out! With Ranked Season 3 enabling perks and rewards for Ranked now accessible directly from the Rank page. Additionally, prestigious rewards for Predator, Masters, and Diamond players - specifically the Dive Trail, Profile Frame, and Badge - will now be rewarded based on Ranking at the end of the Ranked Season.
