May 23, 2023: The Threat Level event begins today! Find out everything you need to know about it in our guide.

The Apex Legends Threat Level event is the first limited-time event of Season 17. Respawn Entertainment's battle royale often introduces events enabling players to earn a wealth of exclusive cosmetic items and play some modes other than Trios.

Throughout the current season, the Apex Legends tier list has undergone a makeover following the arrival of Ballistic and thanks to the Threat Level event, you can get your hands on some brand-new skins for the veteran of the Apex Games.

Before we take a closer look at the Apex Legends Threat Level event, don't forget to check out our Apex Legends weapon tier list for all the intel on the best guns to use in Season 17.

Apex Legends Threat Level event start date

Respawn says the Apex Legends Threat Level event will commence on May 23 which is just a few days away. Just like previous events, you'll have access to a free reward tracker in addition to a range of challenges in order to obtain the rewards on offer.

Does the Apex Legends Threat Level event have an Heirloom?

No, the Threat Level event is not a collection event, meaning there is no Heirloom up for grabs. Instead, the event will have a full overhaul of the store with a variety of bundles to decorate your favourite Legends with a crisp blue and gold colour combination.

Does Apex Legends Threat Level have Revenant Reborn?

Earlier in Season 17, Respawn teased Revenant would receive a full rework. There's a small chance of the rework launching as part of the Threat Level event but it's more likely to arrive during the collection event expected to launch later this season.

Apex Legends Threat Level event game modes

The developer decided to ask the community which game modes they wanted to arrive as part of the Threat Level event. After all the votes were counted, Control is coming back to the battle royale.

Apex Legends Threat Level event rewards
