Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise Collection Event: Reactive weapon skin, new Hardcore LTM, more

apex legends celestial sunrise event

A new Apex Legends Collection Event has been released, so here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise Collection Event.

The Apex Legends Spellbound update provided players with a bunch of new content, from the return of Control to the introduction of Private Matches, which unfortunately have some pretty strict requirements.

Despite this update bringing a collection of new cosmetics and Seer’s Heirloom, the devs have already released the next event. The Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise Collection Event has been dropped for Season 15, and it brings some interesting new content.

With that said, here’s everything you need to know about the event, including the new LTM, and skins.

Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise Collection Event start date

The Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise Collection Event arrived on January 24, 2023, during Season 15, and will end on February 7, 2023.

This new Collection Event is to “celebrate the dawn of a new year,” bringing new cosmetics as well as new ways to play Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Celestial Sunrise skins & rewards

Like any Apex Legends Collection Event, Celestial will be coming with 24 new cosmetic items, but instead of an Heirloom or Mythic skin to unlock, this time it’s a reactive weapon skin.

Reactive “Jadeite Retribution” Peacekeeper skin

This is the first time we’ve seen a reactive weapon skin as the main prize for an Apex Legends Collection Event, and it will be for the Peacekeeper. This reactive Peacekeeper skin is called “Jadeite Retribution,” and it will also include a Weapon Charm and Holospray to complete the set.

New Apex Legends Hardcore LTM & Date Night
