Read on for details.
The floor is lava! Well, some of it, anyway.
Overflow differs from other Arena maps by being lane focused; where each location is separated by tall, lava-filled structures. With this separation, players cannot easily spot early decisions made by the other team and will need to stay vigilant before committing to a side or risk being flanked. While there are opportunities for long-range engagements, combat tends to favor short-to-medium ranges along either POI: Overlook or Slope.
Overlook is a long, open area with a central interior that gives a height advantage over this POI. While this area is perfect for snipers or DMRs, players may want to hold the interior to control not only this area but their flank as well. Slope, as the name implies, offers both a high ground and a unique area where players can slide down to a remote part of the map. This area can be used for sneaky flanks or defensive setups where players may not expect it.
Overflow feels pretty different from our other maps, and our hope is that it will feel rewarding for both defensive and aggressive players alike. Let us know what you think!
Let’s talk about the good stuff: unlockables. For the three weeks of the event, we’re running back-to-back rewards tracks:
- Week one gives you a chance to unlock the Rampart Wastelander Set, which includes a matching gun charm, weapon skin, and a Legendary Rampart skin.
- Week two grants Battle Pass boosters, crafting metals, and Apex packs.
- Week three includes the Lethal Enforcer Bangalore Skin, along with other goodies!
You can earn over 1,000 points per day and challenges refresh daily. There are also stretch challenges that reward four unique badges if you complete them during the event. All of these challenges also stack with your Battle Pass, so you can complete multiple at once.
There will also be three specific badges you can unlock—one each week—for reaching certain milestones in Arenas:
Week 1 Badge: Play 20 Arena Games Total
Week 2 Badge: Get 100 Knockdowns Total in Arenas
Week 3 Badge: Deal 12,000 Damage Total in Arenas
Also kicking off on 7/13 is The Summer Splash Sale. For a couple of weeks, we’re bringing back fan-favorite skins—including Youngblood and Voidwalker!—and running some enticing sales on Apex packs. Check out the store once the event begins and check back daily to see what we’ve got. The Summer Splash Sale runs until 7/27.
All these cosmetics are Event Limited. They may return in a future event or promotion.
That’s all, Legends! See you in the Arena.
