Apex Legends Beast of Prey collection event patch notes – Weapon spawns, Legend tweaks, and more

You better 'prey' you can keep up.

The next Apex Legends collection event is here. Beast of Prey has an alien theme, and it brings a whole host of new content, as well as those all-important gameplay and balance changes.

That alien theme means there are exciting new extraterrestrial skins for the game’s heroes. The Apex Legends blog has a few screenshots along with the patch notes, but we have the full list of skins. Collect all 24 of the new cosmetics, and you’ll unlock the new Loba Heirloom too. Those are all featured in the updated store tab of course.

Beast of Prey also introduces the limited-time mode Gun Run, which pits four squads against each other with leapfrogging weapons. In other words, defeating the opponent means you are given a weapon that’s one tier higher than whatever they were using, capping off with Apex Legends’ new Throwing Knife; get a kill with that to win the match. See the rest of the Beast of Prey patch notes below: there’s a good amount of weapon spawn changes and an important handling change for Rampart’s ultimate.
