How does Apex Legend’s new Battle Pass compare to Fortnite’s Season 8?

Published

on

Respawn released the first season of content for Apex Legends on March 19th. The game’s Battle Pass takes heavy inspiration from Fortnite and deserves a direct comparison to Fortnite’s Season 8 pass.

Apex Legend blew up over a month ago as the next big game due to its free-to-play model and AAA design by Respawn. The game features clean first person shooter mechanics, fast run speeds, and a “down, but not out” feature.

The first Season begins for Apex on March 19th after a long delay in content from the developer. The news has excited many fans and will undoubtedly be a huge money-maker for the game.

The Battle Pass in Apex’s first season is very similar to the Fortnite Battle Pass. The move makes sense because the Battle Pass has turned out to be a popular way of delivering earned content for dedicated players.

So, since the system is similar, we thought we would make a direct comparison between Fortnite’s Season 8 Battle Pass and the Apex Legends Season 1 Battle Pass.

May the best Battle Pass win.

Direct Comparison

Who wore it best, Fortnite or Apex Legends?

Apex & Fortnite’s Battle Pass share a lot of similarities, but we want to see what sets them apart.

Both cost the exact same amount of money to buy at 950 Apex Coins/V-Bucks for the standard Pass or 2800 for the 25 “free” tiers.

Now, let’s move onto looking at the so-called trash or junk items in each game. Every Battle Pass has some filler to ensure players feel some sort of progression throughout the pass.

Fortnite’s Season 8 Battle Pass includes 40% trash items (Sprays,
Sprays, Emoticons, Player Banners, and Loading Screens).

Apex Legends’ Battle Pass includes 45% trash items (Stats Trackers, Player Frames, and Badges).

Total items come out to 115 for Fortnite and 126 for Apex Legends, but Fortnite has 134 when you take into account the different skin styles that can be unlocked for seasonal skins.

Fortnite’s pass include 1500 V-Bucks within it while Apex’s include only 1000 Apex Coins.

By our estimation, Fortnite’s Battle Pass is the better product with more worthwhile items and better returns on your investment. With this said, Apex’s Season 1 Battle Pass is still a good deal for dedicated fans of the game.

Alright, Fortnite has a whole lot of categories, but what do the stats look like?

The Season 8 Battle Pass includes 115 items without reskins/recolors included. With these included, the total goes up to 134 items.

Out of the 115, there are 59 Uncommons, 24 Rares, 14 Epics, and 18 Legendaries.

Uncommon and Rare items make up 72% of the Battle Pass. Epic and Legendary items make up the remaining 28%.

Apex Legends’ first Battle Pass came out on March 19th – via Respawn

We don’t have all the details on the Apex pass yet, but we can get the numbers of item types.

  • x50 Apex Coins – 8
  • x100 Apex Coins – 6
  • Trackers (Stats Displays) – 27
  • Weapons Skins – 22
  • Badges – 21
  • Voice Lines – 7
  • Rare Apex Packs – 10
  • Epic Apex Pack – 1
  • Legendary Apex Pack – 1
  • Battle Pass XP Boosts (Various Boosts) – 10
  • Player Frames – 9
  • Legend Skins – 4

Apex Coins are priced the same as V-Bucks. The Battle Pass in Apex Legends is priced exactly the same as the Fortnite Battle Pass.

It will set you back 950 Apex Coins or 2800 Apex Coins if you want to the 25 tier pack, exactly like Fortnite.

As for the stats breakdowns, the pass has a total of 126 items.

The Battle Pass includes 1000 Apex Coins up for grabs, which pays back the pass’ price if you grind the whole pass out in the allotted 91 days.

All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.

Published

Fortnite-Season-6-Exotic-Weapon-Locations

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

Fortnite Season 6 All Exotic Weapon Locations

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Dub Shotgun: sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.

Neymar skin in Fortnite

The new Neymar Jr. skin coming to Fortnite has been leaked, ahead of its full release expected on April 27.

There’s more than just one skin though, with four skin styles in total, as well as pickaxes and gliders.

The Brazil and PSG superstar is getting kitted out in some unique gear. Rather than wearing the strip of his club or national team, he’s wearing Team Neymar logos.

But, the color of one of the skins is very clearly inspired by the yellow, green and blue of the Brazil flag and football team.

The first images of Neymar’s skins were leaked by Twitter user @ESFortniteBR.

As mentioned, there’s more than just these four skins too.

There are two pickaxes, two gliders, a golden ball and what appears to be a Confedrations Cup trophy.

How to get the Neymar skin in Fortnite

Neymar cosmetics are expected to be a secret skin as part of the battle pass.
