As Season 4 is starting to wind down and we begin to prepare for Apex Legends Season 5, Respawn is treating us to a brand new event focussed around one of the greatest game hunters the Frontier has ever seen: Bloodhound.
Beginning April 7th, Respawn will invite Apex Legends players to follow Bloodhound’s trail in the upcoming “The Old Ways” Lore Event.
Bloodhound will receive their own Town Takeover on World’s Edge, where players will need to battle ferocious Prowlers for their chance at high-tier loot.
Exclusive cosmetics will be available to players that complete the Old Ways Event’s daily challenges with even more The Old Ways-themed items available through the Direct Purchase Shop.
The Old Ways Event
Learn more about Bloodhound’s path from a small village to the Apex Arena in the latest instalment of the Stories from the Outlands, “The Old Ways” trailer here:
Here's what you can look forward to in "The Old Ways" event:
Duos & Kings Canyon
Starting on April 7, Duos will be permanently added to the game alongside Trios, along with a permanent map rotation that gives players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.
Town Takeover - Bloodhound’s Trials
An enclosed area in the northwest portion of World’s Edge, Bloodhound’s Trials boasts a large population of prowlers.
Teams can battle against a hoard of prowlers to claim high-tier loot as a reward. But players must beware of the most dangerous game: fellow Legends scavenging goods for themselves.
Exploring the enclosure with a certain hunter on your side will be most rewarding.
The Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track
With The Old Ways event, Respawn is delivering an all-new prize track with rewards inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways digital short.
Similar to past events, players will be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate.

The Old Ways Event also marks the return of the Legendary Hunt Skins. All 8 of the original Legendary Hunt Skins will be on offer for direct purchase in addition to 2 recoloured variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that were exclusive to battle pass owners.
