This week, Apex Legends Mobile launched Test Your Mettle, a new in-game event that rewards players with free currency, cosmetics and other types of loot for completing various challenges in ranked mode.
Each completed challenge gives players a certain number of challenge points. When enough challenge points are collected, a prize is unlocked. There are three rewards in total, including a mobile-exclusive Bloodhound skin. Keep reading for a detailed look at the Test Your Mettle event, its challenges, and the sweet free rewards.
When you log into the game, you’ll be greeted with a series of splash screens, including one advertising the Test Your Mettle event. Select “Go!” which must be taken directly to the event hub. Alternatively, you can also navigate there manually by selecting the “Seasonal Event” banner on the right side of the main lobby screen.
From there, select the “Limited Time” tab at the top of the screen (located between the “Announcement” and “Seasonal Shop” tabs). Then select “Test Your Mettle” from the vertical list on the right side of the screen. Test Your Mettle is the last event on the list, placed at the very bottom.
Once you’ve made it to the event center, Bloodhound and their raven Artur will be there to greet you, demanding that you “defend your honor in the ring! You can also get a good look at the event’s challenges, rewards and the number of challenge points required to earn these rewards.
Challenges and challenge points
The event’s challenges – and the number of challenge points you’ll receive for completing them – are as follows:
- Finish in the top 3 in ranked mode: 15 challenge points
- Kill 10 enemies in ranked mode: 15 challenge points
- Deal 1000 damage in ranked mode: 15 challenge points
- Kill 2 enemies in a single match in Ranked Mode: 15 Challenge Points
- Get 3 assists in ranked mode: 20 challenge points
- Play 5 matches in ranked mode: 20 challenge points
Players who collect all 100 challenge points will unlock all three free rewards. But Test Your Mettle rewards are received periodically as you work your way through the reward track, meaning you can still pick up some free loot even if you don’t complete every challenge.
The Test Your Mettle rewards – and the number of Challenge Points needed to earn them – are as follows:
- 30 Challenge Points: Frost Fuel Flatline Weapon Skin (Normal)
- 60 Challenge Points: 3000 Seasonal Currency, used to redeem cosmetics from the Distortion Seasonal Store
- 100 Challenge Points: Steel Hunter Bloodhound Legendary Skin (Rare)
The Test Your Mettle event will be live until August 17 at 5pm PT / 8pm ET. But if you’re done early, why not give Fade a free trial run or explore some of Apex Legends Mobile Season 2’s other in-game seasonal events?
