Apex Legends Doppelganger event explained

There are a few different features this event offers, from new game modes and map designs to fresh loot and skins. Here’s what to expect from this year’s Halloween event for Apex Legends.

  • Tricks N’ Treats Trios
  • After Dark Maps
  • Revenant’s Prestige skin
  • Doppelganger event rewards and cosmetics

Let’s go through each of these features in some more detail and explain what they’re all about.

Did you know?

The 2022 Apex Legends Halloween event, Fight or Fright, featured a different game mode called Shadow Royale, in which defeated legends would respawn as deadly shadow enemies.

Tricks N’ Treats Trios

The special gamemode for the event, this spooky spin on regular battle royale trios includes some additional features designed to spice up the gameplay in interesting ways.

First is Candy. A consumable you’ll find scattered around the map, picking up Candy will grant you EVO points, Ultimate ability charge, and regenerate up to 25 shield hit points.

Second are Copycat Kits. Picking up one of these rare items will grant you an extra ability from a different Legend for the duration of the match. Combined with Candy, there should be some great potential for mayhem during this event.

After Dark Maps

Continuing the Halloween theme, After Dark Maps are a limited-time visual overhaul to a number of your favourite maps. Olympus, King’s Canyon, and World’s Edge will all receive new spooky lighting and decorations to drive home the atmosphere for the duration of the celebrations.

Revenant’s Prestige skin

If you’ve been following Apex’s journey of Revenant Reborn, you’ll know that Revenant has been getting plenty of love lately, and that’s set to continue during the Halloween event. The Doppelganger event is finally bringing us Revenant’s Prestige skin.

Prestige skins are a special type of legendary skin with exceptional design and multiple unlockable tiers. Revenant’s skin, Apex Horror, takes some strong seasonal inspiration to create an undead knight design. Once equipped, you’ll be able to level it up from tier one to three through earning kills and finishing challenges.

To get this skin you can of course spend currency as usual, however you can also get it for free if you’re able to collect all 24 event skins before the 31st.

Limited time Doppelganger event rewards and cosmetics

It wouldn’t be much of an event without some great loot to collect. There are 24 unique skins for both weapons and Legends that you’ll be able to get your hands on for the duration of Doppelganger’s run. These range from new Legend skins and banner frames to weapon skins in Halloween attire.

We’ve done a comprehensive breakdown of all the Apex Legends Halloween rewards in a separate guide. If you’re thinking of buying some or all of these cosmetics to skip the grind, we’ve also got a breakdown of the Halloween event costs to help you out.

You’ve got a few ways to get your hands on these skins and rewards. You can buy skins with Apex Coins and Crafting Materials, or unlock them at random through Doppelganger Event Packs. You can also earn up to 1400 points a day through play on the Reward Tracker, which will give simultaneous progress to the Season Pass if you’ve anything left to unlock from it.

That covers everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Doppelgangers start time, end time, and event details. Just like Neon Network and Death Dynasty before it, and the upcoming Uprising event skins this event was a lot of fun and full of amazing cosmetics. Be sure to get on and check it out if it comes back to haunt us next year.
