There's also a new battle pass, and that means you'll be able to earn all kinds of exclusive skins and rewards. Here's how to level your pass quickly.
How to level your Battle Pass quickly in Apex Legends Season 5
You could in theory move through your Battle Pass while actively avoiding conflict. This is because the game's XP is doled out generously for players that last longer.
We're not saying you should hunker down and hide (where's the fun in that), but don't be afraid to retreat from a losing battle so you can lick your wounds and go again.
Switch It Up
The titular Legends of the game are different character classes with unique abilities, and playing as all of them will not only help you gain practice with each, but offers tangible benefits in the form of XP awarded.
Each character used can earn 25,000 XP, and once you hit that threshold you can switch to the next legend to rack up another 25,000. If you've unlocked all of the legends, you'll have more options, too.
Play Together, Stay Together and Slay Together
Perhaps fittingly for a squad-based title, Apex Legends rewards you for teaming up with your friends. Each friend in your squad offers a 5% buff to XP earned, so playing with two friends will offer you a 10% bonus. It doesn't sound a lot, but will help you fly through the ranks when combined with the other tips we've suggested.
