Apex Legends Season 2: Here Are the Week 1 Challenges

The much-awaited Apex Legends Season 2 is here, and fans are absolutely loving it. The new season has added a lot of content to the game, including some new skins and a new character. However, the thing that has left fans even more excited are the weekly challenges. While other battle royale titles such as Fortnite and PUBG have had these challenges since the start, they have just been introduced in Apex Legends as part of their staged roll-out.

What Are Weekly Challenges?

The weekly challenges will ask players to perform various missions every week until season 2 ends. By completing these challenges, players will receive rewards and make progress through the Battle Pass. Every week, players will receive challenges which ask them to do something specific. For example, one challenge may ask a player to get 10 headshots with a specific gun, and they will receive a reward of 1BP level if they do so. Aside from this, there are going to be a lot of different challenges throughout the season.
