Bangalore Prestige Skin “Apex Commander”

In Season 13 Bangalore is going to receive her “Apex Commander” Prestige Skin. Bangalore’s Prestige edition skin is based upon the Pilot uniform from the original Titanfall games. And as this is a Mythic tier skin tailor-made for Bangalore, the dev team at Respawn made the right call with the design aesthetic.

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 Hero Anime “Gaiden” thematic Event. Players can unlock this skin by collecting all the items from the thematic event.

Gaiden Event Tracker

Like other events, the Gaiden Thematic Event will also feature free cosmetic items and packs. Players can get these skins by completing Gaiden challenges.
