Respawn reveals Bangalore’s Prestige skin, “Apex Commander.” Apparently, it will come to the game alongside the Gaiden Thematic Event.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game based in the same universe as the Titanfall franchise. Despite facing intense competition from PUBG and Fortnite, Respawn managed to make a name for itself in the popular battle royale genre with Apex without any marketing.

Respawn successfully merged their world-class first-person shooter mechanics with hero-based abilities to near perfection. They became a household name in this genre and quickly garnered a massive concurrent player base.

Like other games in the same genre, Respawn took the free-to-play model to monetize their first foray into the battle royale market. It turned out to be a great decision, as it meant this game had no barrier to entry.

Although players can purchase battle passes, skins, emotes, and more to customize their play sessions, the game only offered character skins up to legendary rarity. That all changed when Respawn released the very first Mythic rarity Prestige edition skin line with Bloodhound. And Bangalore is the next Legend to receive her Prestige skin in the following Gaiden Thematic Event.

Unsurprisingly, Bangalore’s Prestige edition skin is based upon the Pilot uniform from the original Titanfall games, and it is called “Apex Commander.” As this is a Mythic tier skin tailor-made for Bangalore, the dev team at Respawn made the right call with the design aesthetic.

Similar to the Bloodhound skin, the Pilot Bangalore skin seems to have three phases. The starting one will look awfully similar to any other basic-looking legendary skin. However, with the next phase, Bangalore will receive a facemask that definitely adds another layer to the skin.

And lastly, the last phase will turn Bangalore into a full-fledged pilot with a unique-looking helmet covering her face.

Players will need to accumulate certain damage numbers on their accounts to unlock additional levels of the skin, although the exact requirements have not been revealed yet.

Bangalore “Prestige” Skin Price

The Bloodhound Prestige skin was available during the Anniversary Collection Event in Season 12. However, this time, Respawn is taking a different approach. Instead of putting the Bangalore Mythic Skin in the Collection Event, they are making this skin available in the “Gaiden” thematic Event. Players can unlock this skin by collecting all the items from the Thematic Event.

Based on previous Prestige Edition skin releases, expect players to spend around $160 to add this skin to their inventory. Or they can pray to the RNG gods by purchasing event-specific Apex packs.
