You Can Buy Apex Legends' Halloween Fight Or Fright Cosmetics
You don't need to rely on the Apex Packs to get what you really want.
Update: Apex Legends went live with its Halloween event Fight or Fright on October 15. It introduces Shadowfall mode, but more notable for some are all of the new Halloween-themed skins and cosmetics. You can earn these by playing or, as noted below, simply buy your way to many of them. Fight or Fright runs through November 5.

Original story follows...
Unlike the Iron Crown event, Apex Legends Season 3's upcoming limited-time Fight or Fright event will allow you to buy its epic- and legendary cosmetic items right from the start. It's still cheaper to earn them all via the random lottery of Apex Packs, but if you only want one or two, now you can easily nab your favorites.
Fight or Fright adds 33 items to Apex Legends, including a new heirloom for Lifeline. Eight of the items can only be earned through completing challenges--these include a new music pack, three badges, a rare weapon skin, an epic Octane skin, and two legendary weapon skins. The remaining 25 are the items you can buy. 12 are an assortment of epic items, 12 are an assortment of legendary items, and the final item is the Lifeline heirloom; which can be unlocked via several different methods.
Of the 24 items you can buy, you can either earn them through direct purchase, crafting, or Apex Packs. The first two methods are ideal if you're looking to only unlock a few items, while the third method is the most cost-effective for unlocking all 24. We've included a cost breakdown below.
- Legendaries - 1,800 Apex Coins
- Epics - 1,000 Apex Coins
- Legendaries - 2,400 Crafting Metals
- Epics - 800 Crafting Metals
Event Apex Packs
- 700 Apex Coins
New items aren't all that's coming in Fight or Fright. For one, Kings Canyon is returning, but with a spooky, nighttime makeover in a limited-time mode called Shadowfall. In Shadowfall, you solo drop into Kings Canyon alongside 34 other people. If killed in Shadowfall, your loot box will spawn killer spiders and you'll rise from the dead as a zombie-like creature that can run faster, climb higher, and punch harder. In this zombie state, you have unlimited respawns.
Your endgame goal is dependent on whether you're still alive or a part of the walking dead. When there are only 10 living characters left, the survivors must work together to combat the horde of 25 trying to kill them. The 10 living Legends win if they can make it to an evac ship while the 25 zombies win if they prevent the survivors from escaping.
Fight or Fright begins October 15 and continues through to November 5.
