Respawn released the first-ever Prestige skin for Bloodhound in Season 12. However, the Season 13 Battle Pass Bloodhound skin questions whether the Prestige skin is worth it.
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 Apex Legends 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 skin line with Bloodhound. And Banglore was the next Legend to receive her Prestige skin.
When Respawn introduced Prestige skins, they labeled these items as Mythic tier items, previously categorized as Heirlooms. As Prestige skins were added to the game, Heirlooms were not the only exclusive Mythic tier items remaining in the game anymore.
Season 13 Bloodhound BP Skin Looks Better Than the Prestige Skin
The Prestige skin costs 150 Heirloom Shards, the rarest item in the game. You can get Heirloom Shards by opening at most 500 Apex packs in the game. You can either get an Heirloom or a Prestige skin with the Shards.
On the other hand, Respawn released one of the best-looking Bloodhound skins in Season 13. Players can get this Legendary Bloodhound skin by owning a Premium Battle Pass and reaching level 50. The Battle Pass only costs 1000 Apex coins, which is way cheaper than owning a Mythic tier item.
Even though Bloodhound’s “Feral’s Future” is not the rarest item to get, it looks absolutely stunning, according to the Apex Legends community. They consider this skin even better than the Prestige Bloodhound skin.
Although Prestige Skins look cool, it is still arguable whether these are worth the price, especially considering better skins are available for each Legend. So, Respawn may need to put more effort into designing the Prestige skins if they want more players to pay for them.
