It’s so cool it makes you forget that these skins will cost you a small fortune. Not going to lie – the trailer is really well done!

Per the norm for collection events, collecting/buying all of the cosmetics will net you a reward. This time around it’s a Prestige Skin for Bangalore too much dismay of fans.

Not because it’s a Bangalore skin but because these skins cost a fortune. To be fair, it’s a moderately decent skin.

All of us Bangalore mains will take whatever we can get.

The Gaiden Event is live in Apex Legends and will run until August 2. Fear not, when the event is over, you’ll be able to use crafting materials to craft cosmetics you missed.
