Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event: rewards, skins & more
Apex Legends Season 8 is finally here, and the Anniversary Collection will bring a ton of exciting new content for players. Here’s everything that we know so far about the event, including the release date.
Collection Events have been a major Apex Legends tradition since the game first launched, and the one for Season 7, titled Fight Night, gave the developers the perfect opportunity to show off all the content that they had planned for players.
Now that Season 8 is here, we’ll be getting a brand new Collection Event to celebrate the game’s 2 year anniversary on February 9, 2021. We’ll go over every new change that this event will bring to the battle royale.
Apex Legends Anniversary skins
As expected, Season 8 will plenty of brand new Legend and weapons skins, with most of the characters getting an “Anniversary” recolor.
Respawn confirmed that 24 items will be given red and gold recolors so that players have the chance to grab old skins with a classy redesign.
“We’re bringing back 24 fan-favorite items and giving them a fresh look with crimson red and gold touches. If you’ve missed out on a skin you really wanted in the past, now’s the time to snag it, but with a new look that lets others know you were here in the early days of Apex Legends. ”

Anniversary Collection Event Heirloom
While Season 8’s Anniversary event does not add a new heirloom, completing the collection will net you 150 Heirloom Shards, to spend on an heirloom of your choice.
Apex Anniversary bundles
The Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event will come with a few that include recolor skins and Apex Packs at a discount. Plus, the Paradigm Shifter R-99 skin will make its return to the battle royale, and you’ll be able to get it from the store.
Anniversary Prize track
You can earn up to 22 items, including two Event Packs and ten Apex Packs.
Locked and Loaded LTM takeover
The event will also add a brand new LTM in the form of the Locked and Loaded takeover mode. This grant you a full loadout of level 1 gear as you land in the battle area, and you’ll have to make do with that while taking on other players.
This loadout includes a Mozambique, White Shotgun Bolt, HCOG Classic Scope, White Evo Shield, White Helmet, White Backpack, White Incap Shield, two Syringes, two Shield Cells, and a stack of shotgun ammo.
You won’t find any Common/White level gear and attachments as loot during the takeover, so this LTM will test you in battle.
We will also get a few new challenges that you can complete during the event in order to unlock some awesome new rewards:
- Get the “Daily Discovery” Nessie Badge by completing 75 Daily Challenges
- “Respect your elders” and earn the Mozambique Badge by dealing 102,816 Damage (get the reference?)
- Earn “Time to Win and Stay Alive” with 8 different Legends to get the Smolfinder Badge
You can also earn the “Mozambique Here” Weapon Charm by dishing out 3,333 Damage to your opponents with the Mozambique. You might get this done more easily with the Locked and Loaded takeover.
