The Apex Legends Battle Pass is a constant source of division among the game’s player base. While some people in the community are happy with it in its current form, others are calling for a major Fortnite-inspired change to catch up with the competition.
Complaints about the Apex Battle Pass have been a dozen over the past few seasons, with players often criticizing the quality of skins and other items making their way onto both the free and paid tracks of the rewards program.
This time around, the complaint was met with some constructive criticism – and a proposal that could help Respawn finally put the subject to rest in Season 15.
Apex Legends players ask for Fortnite-style progress in the Battle Pass
The age-old topic came up again when a user took to the Apex Legends subreddit to ask if anyone is really happy with the current speed at which players complete the track or with the skins they earn along the way.
While Season 14’s Pass garnered early praise, it’s now clear that not everyone agrees that it was enough to make up for their distaste for the previous iterations.
“Compared to other games, Apex’s feels like a drag to get through and it doesn’t have enough good content to justify how long it takes,” noted the original poster.
A recurring comparison was Fortnite’s pass and the relatively high speed at which players can get through it.
One player directly asked Apex to follow suit and praised the other Battle Royale for always being up to date. “The game needs to catch up. It’s actually embarrassing how much better Fortnite is when it comes to this shit.”
Another commentator also addressed the challenges as another area that could improve if the team ever revises the system.
“The grind is also terrible. It takes so much fun out of the game when you’re forced to play with legends or weapons you don’t want to use, only to level up a battle pass that has worthless rewards,” they said.
Respawn hasn’t teased any upcoming changes, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t on the table for next season.
