Apex Legends Mobile - Aftershow Seasonal Event Guide

The Aftershow update may have launched alongside a shortened battle pass, but this update has no shortage of in-game events to keep players busy.

Comments

Apex Legends Mobile released its third battle pass of the season earlier this week alongside the launch of its Aftershow update. The mobile game's second season won't officially come to an end until October 18, based on the countdown timer located on the battle pass page. This new update functions as a "filler season" of sorts, with a shortened battle pass and no new legend joining the squad this time around.

But despite its bite-sized battle pass, the Aftershow update is still jam-packed with content, including a multitude of events that reward players with cosmetic items and in-game currency they can then use to unlock even more cosmetics via the Hyperbeat Seasonal Store. Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of everything we know about Aftershow's scheduled seasonal events.
