Apex Legends is ringing in the Lunar New Year with a series of new updates including a re-worked progression system that raises the level cap while rewarding players with more free Apex Packs, along with the release of new Gun Charms.

Year of the Rat Gun Charms & More!

First up, and for one week only, there are two exclusive “Year of the Rat” Gun Charms for Apex Legends. These Gun Charms will only be available from 25 January to 1 February. Players can now purchase them directly through the in-game store with 500 Apex Coins (US$5).

Keep up with the Year of the Rat trend and make your weapon stand out on the battlefield while being bestowed with good luck and fortune!

Players will also be able to collect 36 new Gun Charms to customize their favourite weapons, available now through Apex Packs at Epic and Legendary tiers. Unique Player Level Gun Charms inspired by the new level badges can be earned by players at levels 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500.

Player Progression Changes

Starting from 3 December, the player level cap has increased from 100 to 500, giving players the ability to earn 199 Apex Packs as they progress to the highest level.

The new progression system also changes the rate at which players level up to level 100, streamlining the new player experience. Players under level 100 as well as those that have been at the level cap will be awarded Apex Packs retroactively according to the new progression system and level cap. Players will also earn a new badge every 10 levels from levels 110-500. Read more on the official blog post.
