What’s new in Apex Legends Mobile Season 2
Apex Legends Mobile Season 2: Distortion launched yesterday, bringing with it a new battle pass, a new mobile-exclusive legend, plenty of gameplay changes, and a new town takeover. But the final season still holds a few surprises that can only be discovered by actually playing the game.
From login bonuses to promotions and challenges with free rewards, here’s an overview of all the events currently active in the mobile version of Respawn’s popular battle royale.
The Rhapsody Live event tasks players with welcoming Rhapsody to the team of legends by collecting posters from some of his previous concerts. Posters can be unlocked by completing daily challenges that reward the player with points shaped like musical notes. Get enough points and you’ll unlock a poster.
Each poster also comes with its own special reward, including a Banner Badge, Weapon Charm, Rhapsody Banner Pose, and matching Banner Frame. Players who collect the 80 points needed to unlock all four posters will also receive a bonus reward: 4,000 Seasonal Currency, which can be exchanged for cosmetics in Distortion’s Seasonal Shop. The Rhapsody Live event ends on July 23.
King’s Canyon is now littered with VIP loot bins, which provide players with high-tier loot. Many of these trash cans can be found in Encore Galore, the new POI that serves as Rhapsody’s Town Takeover. But there’s a catch: these high-level loot bins can’t be opened without a VIP pass.
VIP Passes can be found in Party Ticks, which will sometimes drop a VIP Pass (and some quality loot) when you pull them. Once you have a VIP pass, you will be able to open VIP loot bins for the duration of the event. Opening these bins will reward you with Rhapsody Tickets, which you can redeem for free cosmetics in the VIP Rewards section of the VIP Access event page. The event ends on August 23.
A massive login bonus event called Daily Rewards is currently active. From now until August 9, players will receive a free gift every day they log in. There are 28 rewards in total, players who unlock all 28 rewards will receive:
- 14,600 seasonal currencies
- 1,000 Streams
- 3 Mission Cards
- 2 syndication packs
- 20 Pack Coins (which will yield 2 additional Syndicate Packs)
- Night Laser Avatar Frame
- Daredevil Weapon Charm
- Placing the Knockout Pathfinder Banner
- Epic Tier Ocean Link Fade Skin
Don’t worry if you forget to log in – you can use up to five Retro Check-Ins to maintain your streak. Don’t forget to claim your loot on the rewards page before the event ends on August 9th.
New store safe
The Mecha Strike Go! Store Vault is now open.

The event contains 8 Eternal items, 4 Legendary items, 14 Epic items, and 10 Rare items. Eternal items include legend skins for Fade, Octane, Lifeline, and Bloodhound as well as weapon skins for the Kraber, Longbow DMR, Havoc, and Flatline.
